    Closing Kits

    1. 1 decade ago
      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.

      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.

      Good Products, Good Price
      I have been using this kit for the past 7 years to close my in ground pool and it works quite well. My pool opening is easier thanks to the winter chemicals included with this kit.

      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.

      Pool Closing Extra
      This is great for closing pools. Water is usually always clear and blue upon opening.

      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.

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

      Great product easy to use!
      I’ve used this kit the last couple of years and the pool opens crystal clear. In the Northeast where your pool is closed a good amount a time, this kit makes it easy to know when you open your pool you won’t have any issues awaiting you.

      Good product, bad description
      This item was exowhat I wanted and also came with great instructions. This is my first year with a pool therefore my first year closing one. However, the description when trying to buy was terrible. Their were different winterizing kits like "deluxe" and other. None of them had hob big of a pool they were for in description. And the instructions didn't either. Hopefully I got the correct one for my pool. Hopefully this is something that can be updated.

      Feeling Confident
      As winter approached in the North East maintaining our pool water is critical to me. Spring time seems a long time off, therefore when its time to open our pool I'm expecting to see clear water with very little cleanup time for the summer ahead. I have always used the winterizing kits from In the Swim which is has the perfect solution for clear water that's enabled us to swim in a very short period of time. Our pool is over 35 years old.

      Has everything I need!
      I have used the pool closing kit for the last four years and have had great results! This kit has every chemical I need to close my pool and when I reopen in the Spring my pool is in great shape. I have reordered this each year since a friend referred me to the In The Swim website since it works. I have a 33 foot above ground pool and order the largest size to make sure I have enough chemicals. The kit is easy to use and works great!

      Every year from now on!!!
      We bought this last year “hoping” It would help when we opened the pool the next year. Let me just say WOW. My water was crystal clear. Yes I had some tad vacuuming to do (frogs laid eggs and they had died and went to the bottom) I will use this every single year. For what this cost and if u don’t use it. The cost of opening your pool and getting your water right cost a LOT more and the headache!!!! Highly recommend 10 stars!!!!!

      Easy to use
      I have been using this kit for the last 25 years and in the spring the water is always clear and I just have to put in the aquabot in and the pool is ready to use in 24 hours. Fast and easy dispensing no mess and no measuring.

      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.

      Quick delivery, but missing one item
      I placed the order, and received the winterizing kit in two days. However, the quote Magic Ball unquote was not in the kit. I had to call back and advise them of this. They did ship out the missing item immediately, and I received it the next day. We will see how the pool looks when I open it in the spring.

      Will never close without it.
      I"ve had my pool for 6 years and have never closed without it. Have no idea what my pool would look like without it and wont ever know. With the exception of 1 spring ,cleanup has been a breeze and the 1 year i had a mess was because of a faulty cover and in the swim took care of it. Love it!!!!

      A "must have" for closing pool
      When we purchased the ball last fall, I was little doubtful as to how well it would actually work. It was smaller than I was expecting and didn't look like much. HOWEVER..........when we opened the pool this spring the water was clear and I was amazed!! I'm getting ready to order our Winter Ball for this year's closing and I just hope In The Swim has this product as long as we have a pool!!!

      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.

      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.

    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
