    Closing Kits

      Winterizing Wonders
      Third year now that I have used the In The Swim winterizing package for my in-ground pool. Works like a charm and saves the cost of hiring someone to do it for me. This spring, the water needed less attention than prior seasons due to addition of floating clorinator included in the package. Thanks for making opening easier but my former pool guy misses the business. Maybe he'll pay you not to sell your products ??

      Not Perfect but Very Good
      My water was crystal clear, but I did have algae growth on bottom. I just couldn't get it to clean up when we opened. After a water test we found the phosphorus too high, so it looks like we had other issues. All is crystal clear now!

      Winter Algaecide
      I have been using the In the swim winter algaecide for about 12 years.... Works great... I put one quart in at closing and I add a quart about ten day before I open the pool in the spring.....

      Nice kit!
      This is the exact kit I wanted to close my pool! I haven’t used it yet but can review the product again next spring. Fast shipping and great kit. Will re-review once I open my pool after this winter.

      Winterize
      I have purchased the winterizing kit for my pool since the very first winter after I purchased my pool. I have never had a problem with opening it in the spring. My chemicals are always perfect and my water is always clear.

      Everything I needed including instructions!
      Fairly new pool owner, did my research and got everything I needed today do the closing from here. As always orders always come in a timely manner. Only thing I would want different is to not have to close the pool

      InTheSwim Instructions Almost Always Lacking
      Guys, you've GOT to get it together on your opening and closing instructions. The closing instructions shown on the website page above these comments tell us to add Pool Magic first, Phosphate Remover second, Shock third. Your printed instructions with the kit say to add Shock first, WAIT a half-hour, and then add Pool Magic and the Phosphate Remover. Your online directions tell us to lower the pool level BEFORE adding anything. Anyone who does will soon realize that the pump STILL needs to be ... read more running for all of the chemicals, so lowering the water would have been a big mistake. The product is great and I really enjoy purchasing from your company, but I can't understand why you can't be clearer in these situations.

      Ultimate Winterizing Kit
      This is the second Winterizing Kit I've purchased from In The Swim. I bought the first one last year for pool closing, and followed the directions. When I opened the pool this spring, this was the first time ever that I found the pool water as crystal clear and beautiful as it was when I installed my winter cover. This kit WORKS, and I'll be buying one every year when I close the pool.

      Straight Forward
      Works as advertised and I have been using these for years. I find the sponge particularly worthless, but whatever, it comes with the kit.

      It Works
      I live in the south and have an above ground pool that I do not close for winter. I only have a few trees around and after the leaves have all fallen I clean the pool. We have had a few weeks of 28 degree temps and I always poyr in a bottle of pool anti-freeze to keep the filter and pump from freezing. This stuff works great! When I open the pool (Salt water) I do a shock, and then replace some of the salt that has washed out. Jump in and enjoy.

      Anti- freeze at it's best
      I have been using this anti- freeze for over three years and the product works wonders. It does exactly what it is supposed to do and that is protect lines. Excellent product and would recommend to all that have underground lines and plumbing for their inground pools.

      It does the job
      I use a couple of gallons when closing in skimmer lines. It's a little pricey, but does the job.

      This grouping really works!
      I've been purchasing the In The Swim pool closing chemicals for 10-11 yrs and the addition of the Pool Magic products as well as the addition of the Winter Pill worked the best for my inground vinyl pool last Spring. I followed the instructions and added the chemicals before the professional pool reps came to close it. Upon opening the water was almost clear. After using the In The Swim pool opening chemicals along with the usual vacuuming, the water was fit for swimming in no time at all. ... read more As long as their chemicals keep working, I will keep purchasing them.

      Great winterizing kit
      I've been buying the Ultimate Winterizing kit from In The Swim for several years now and I'll keep buying it every time I close my pool for winter because IT WORKS. I know that my pool water is going to be as clear and sparkley clean when I open it in the spring as it was when I closed it, because of In The Swims quality products.

      Best products ever
      Our closing kit for our pool came next day as always. We used a kit from Great Escape last year and pool was a light green so we are back with in the swim and looking forward to a crystal clear opening in spring as we have always had in past seasons. Thank you for great products and sevice. We will never stray again

      Perfect fit
      A simple thing like plugs often give us fits - the wing nut turns the screw and they don't tighen or the rubber cracks - not the case with these, installed them out of the package - perfect fit and operation
    2. 4 years ago
      They Work Great!
      I had bought some of these plugs when we first set up our 18' above ground pool and they worked great. Now, 8 years later they finally got weather cracked and needed replacement. You can't beat the price considering they kept water from leaking out during the winter for many years. The only change is that the wing nut is now plastic verse metal from 8 years ago. The new plastic wing nut worked great and should last as long as you keep it out of the sun during the summer.

      Wonderful service!
      We were very happy with the product. The explanation of the product was very understandable.

      Works Great!
      I bought this last year around this time and just threw it in and covered my pool. When I opened my pool again at the end of April my pool was a clear and clean looking as it was when I covered it. I didn't use any other closing chemicals, just closed off and drained my pump and let the ball do it's work.

      Best Opening Ever
      The year before last we had a "professional" close our pool and opening it last spring was a nightmare. It cost a fortune and when we opened the pool, it was like a neglected pond, complete with frogs and tadpoles. Last year, we purchased a winterizing kit and the winter ball from In the Swim....WOW! This year when we took off our cover, the water was clear. There was a little algae on the sides and bottom, but it was easily brushed and filtered out. I've lived with a pool for 36 years and I've ... read more never seen a pool in such great shape in the spring. Thank you In the Swim! I've already ordered my winterizing kit and winter ball for closing this year and it's only early July!

      Amazed
      After 14 years of opening a pool to a swamp, the only change was adding this in the closing of the pool 2010. Opening May of 2011 was amazing clear. Even after having 2 90 degree days(which would normally cook up some algea) before we took off the mesh cover, it was the cleariest it has ever been.

      Excellent product
      I have used Pool Magic for several years now and it has proven to be an extremely effective treatment to jump start my pool opening. I also use it to close up the pool in the fall. Well worth using.
    2. 1 year ago
      I'm sold!
      Short version: this stuff works! Longer version: For the past several years I've been opening my 20,000 gallon (w/ mesh safety cover) pool to find it so green and nasty looking (due to the mesh safety cover), that at times I thought draining it might be a better option. That said, I figured I would give this [Pool Magic Plus Phosfree Pool Cleaner] a try, especially since it was still relatively warm when I closed the pool. I did the normal closing procedure, but this time added Pool Magic ... read more too. Then in March, I added a second bottle (as the product recommends). Well, I just pulled the pool cover off and... WOW! This stuff REALLY works! I was expecting to see the usual algae green water that's so dark and 'thick' you can't see the bottom of the pool (or the steps for that matter). However, this year, not only is the water not green but, for the first time EVER, I can actually see the bottom of the pool (even in the deep end)!

      Works Great
      This well be the third year that we are using POOL MAGIC. Pool has been very clear each spring opening

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Closing Kits

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Close Your Pool With The Right Winter Pool Chemicals

    During the long off season in the snowbelt – for those that winterize their swimming pool – the water is not being circulated, filtered or sanitized - making your pool the perfect breeding ground for algae. Our winter pool closing kits have been specifically designed and formulated to provide you with the exact combination of powerful winterizing chemicals to help ensure a swift opening next spring, without additional chemicals needed to restore water clarity. All of our In The Swim Pool Winter Kits Include:


    Chlorine-Free Shock

    Our Chlorine-Free Shock is a powerful oxidizing agent, but is non-chlorine, and will never harm your pool surfaces or your pool cover. Chlorine-Free winter shock also dissolves faster than chlorine, and maintains greater efficacy at a wider range of pH level. All of our Winter Pool Kits contain our premium non-chlorine shock oxidizer to burn off any remaining impurities, while not reducing the effectiveness of other chemicals.

    Time-Release Winter Floater

    Our exclusive time-release Winter Floater discharges a non-chlorine oxidizing agent into your pool water for months after it's been covered. Not only does this winter chemical floater sanitize your pool water, but also works to remove carbon dioxide from the water - eliminating one of algae's primary food sources. Unlike chlorine tablet pool floaters, our non-chlorine Winter Floater will never stain your plaster or vinyl. 

    Winter Stain Away

    Specifically formulated for closing your pool, Winter Stain Away helps eliminate stain-causing metals and minerals that can leave your pool with costly liner stains or hard-to-clean waterline build-up. Winter Stain Away sequesters metals – keeping them tied up in solution, to prevent them from precipitating out during winter. Works wonders on mesh safety covered pools, and keeps working all year round to help prevent metal and mineral stains.

    Winterizer

    The final step to preventing algae next spring is to pour in our special winter pool algaecide. Dr. Pool's own proprietary polymer blend combines in perfect harmony with the other items in your pool winterizing kit. When used in conjunction with our other pool closing chemicals our Winterizer Algaecide is the perfect "knock-out" punch against algae. Lasts all winter long, even into a warm spring.

    Winter Sorb 

    Made exclusively for our Winterizing Kits, the Winter Sorb™ can absorb up to 40 times its weight in residual suntan lotions and body oils to prevent grease, grime and waterline scum. Oils are not good for keeping a clear pool that is winterized. They provide a low grade food source for algae, and can clog up the waterways, easily combining with free chlorine to create chloramines, which get in the way of free chlorine trying to do its job.


    Buy the Winter Kit that best fits your pool size. Don't order a kit that's too small, it's better to have some extra chemical in the pool to help guard against cover tears, heavy debris or warm springtime temperatures. And if you close early, or open late in the season, to buy the next larger size winter kit. 

    To help select the best Winter Closing Kit, use these formulas to closely calculate the number of gallons in your pool.
     - Round Pools: Diameter x Diameter x Average Depth x 5.9 = Total Gallons
     - Oval Pools: Long Diameter x Short Diameter x Average Depth x 5.9 = Total Gallons
     - Rectangular Pools: Length x Width x Average Depth x 7.5 = Total Gallons
