    Closing Accessories

      Great product
      I live in the Deep South , so not much concern about freezing, but this kit does a great job of keeping the pool algae and stain free. It’s my third year of using this, and each time I open the pool it’s just as good as when I closed it. I will continue to use this product and highly recommend.

      The Best
      Used this closing kit for years and always opened the pool to clean clear water. That is until last year when I procrastinated and didn't order. I stopped at the local pool store and bought their closing kit. Last spring when I pulled back the cover I was greated with cloudy dirty water that took days of filtering and multiple shocks...This year it was back to the In the Swim closing kit...Time saved is money earned

      Does the job!
      We have successfully used In The Swim pool winterizing kits for the past three years. The first year we tried the kit we were a bit unsure about the quality because the kit was significantly less expensive than the one we had previously used. The spring following our first In The Swim Kit we opened the pool to sparkling clean water. After that we had no further qualms about using it and have made it our go to kit for pool winterization.

      Great Bags
      I bought 12 of these to hold my tarp down on my 15 ft pool. We filled them easily but as stated they are alittle hard to close. I think a screw type cap would've been easier but atleast they haven't leaked. So far they are doing the job the cover hasn't blown off. We'll see when the real wind starts though. I would definitely recommend to other users.

      Great Product
      WE have been trying to find something that would keep the wind from getting under the cover and pulling the clips off for three years.....THIS IS IT... The bags have been in place for a month and have survived 50 MPH winds . If your looking for something to keep your cover in place this is it.

      a must for pools exposed to high winds
      bought a few three years ago, more the next year... now I have them about every three feet on a 28 foot round pool that is exposed to the winds of the Midwest. Only three bags have failed over the three years and leaked the water out, which I thinks is very good considering they freeze solid and are also in frozen water of the pool. Cover the pool attach the bags loosely to the wire that holds the cover, and lay them on the cover.

      Amazing
      This thing is amazing we hooked it right to the pillow hooked the middle of the cover to the pillow slid that cover right on pillow stay right in the center where it's supposed to be amazing wish I had this thing all the years before now.

      Very easy to close my pool!
      I have used the Pool Pillow Pal for the past 4 years and I love it! So much easier than string. I never had a problem with my Pal detaching, so I was surprised by some reviews, but my neighbors detached a couple years ago, but he didn't clean the area good on the cover, so it probably didn't seal well. No problem for him since that one time either. Great product, just have to make sure the cover is clean and dry!

      Very cool
      Pillow pal was easy to use and cut out having to use twine, to secure the pillow. I gave it 4 stars because we haven't seen if it holds up all winter.

      Acceptable performance
      This past year was the first year using them. I did not purchase enough of them to go around the whole pool so I had both the blocks and bags. They were just as effective as bags as both had a tendency to be dragged towards the pool. However we did loose a couple of bags during winter due to leakage and that side wound up in the drink. The aqua blocks stayed full. Some of the lids did blow off and had to be put back on several times. Cleanup was super easy, just dump the water and stack. This ... read more year I am getting enough for the other half and possibly positioning them diagonally to keep more weight on the cover to keep it from slipping. I'm done with bags. However they do take up more space in storage.

      Does the job
      Not sure why the lid catches are not more secure... They need a bit more plastic in each catch to hold the lid properly. Often, the catching mechanism is so flimsy that it's difficult to know when the lid is actually locked in place.

      Finally, something that works
      With living in the windy north its very had to find something that actually works and holds the winter cover down securely. Those blue bags need to be replaced every year and get costly. The Aqua Blocks worked wonderfully. Lids don't snap on well but we used large zips ties to solve the problem. Through all the wind and snowstorms the Aqua Blocks didn't move! Nice to open the pool and have hardly any worms. Buying another dozen this year.

      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.

      SO SIMPLE!!
      We've been using the bungee plug for the past two years on our in ground pool - SO SIMPLE! It takes a few minutes before all the water comes out of the lines though. We used a heavy duty shop vac (could have been the problem with a previous reviewer).
    2. 4 months ago
      Better than I had hoped.
      Closed my inground pool yesterday. They work great! Used a large shop vac. One plug was stuck shut. I removed the bungee from the body of the plug and reinstalled bungee. Worked great. A real time saver.

      Ultimate Double Water Tubes
      I have bought these heavy duty ultimate double water tubes in the past to hold down the winter cover on my 40x20 in ground pool and they last for several seasons. Even with shipping, they are less expensive than the cheaply made water tubes they sell in a pool warehouse near where I live. Satisfied repeat customer who always takes advantage of 10% off sales.
    2. 2 years ago
      Easy to use!
      We had trouble for years with leaves blowing under the edges of our winter cover even though it was stretched tight and flat. The water tubes are so easy to fill and put into place and are working great to divert unwanted materials making their way under the cover and into the pool!

      Better Water Tubes
      Just installed 6 of the Ultimate Water Tubes so I can't say how long they last. In the past I used the cheaper water tubes and some of them leaked right away. Most of the cheaper tubes didn't last a full season and I decided to get the Ultimate Water Tubes to avoid regular replacement. The new tubes are heavy duty and heat sealed on all edges. They appear to be far less likely to leak especially on the corners where to cheaper tubes tend to leak the most. The caps are a lot easier to close than ... read more the cheaper tubes and they appear to seal very well. After trying these water tubes I think they are well worth the extra expense.
