    SKIMMER GUARD PROTECTS SKIMMERS FROM WINTER ICE EXPANSION!
    • Acts as an ice compensator inside of your skimmer housing.
    • Absorbs the expansion of freezing water inside your skimmer, preventing it from cracking the skimmer housing.
    • Simply place Skimmer Guard into your skimmer after lowering the water level in your pool.
    • To finish winterizing your pool, insert a #9 rubber pool plug into the return line.
    • Compare our winter pool skimmer guard to a pool skimmer gizmo.

      Additional Information:

      To use the pool Skimmer Guard, drain your skimmer of water after inserting your Aquador skimmer cover or lowering the water level. Use Teflon tape to wrap the threads of the Skimmer Guard, and then thread it into the bottom of the skimmer tightly.

      Our winter Skimmer Guard, much like the pool gizmo, has different thread sizes to accommodate all threaded aboveground pool skimmers. Made of high density plastic, with enough sidewall flexibility to absorb the ice that forms in your pool skimmer from a rising pool water level, or from fall rainfall and winter snow melt.

      For the aboveground pool with one pool skimmer and one pool return, after plugging your empty skimmer tightly with the Skimmer Guard, plug your drained return line with a #9 pool plug at the pool wall. This ensures that no water can enter your pool plumbing and crack your pipes, hose or pump and filter.

      Congratulations, your aboveground pool plumbing winterization is now complete. Balance your pool water, add a winter chemical kit and cover your pool to keep it clean and block sunlight all winter long.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Think twice I used this product last winter on my brand new pool. The water level never rised in my pool, but water still got in somehow. This item did not do its job, as my skimmer cracked, obviosly due to freezing water that somewho got into the skimmer. I checked it weekly throughout the winter, but never saw any water build-up, so it isn't like the skimmer filled up with so much water that this item couldn't do its job at preventing a crack.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from doesnt fit all this would be great if it didnt let water out still ,it doesn't fit all skimmer boxes .found a trick to it if you use this add a water hose to skimmer box n put the end of hose back into pool so what come out goes right back into your pool when useing this want loose water

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Survived New York Winter This worked great and was put to the test last winter. Living in Central New York, where we talk of snow in terms of feet, not inches, it was put to the test. We had no skimmer problems at all.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Work as advertised. In conjunction with a return plug, allowed me to keep water in pool through the winter without any damage or water loss.
