      Super impressed with this product
      After years of struggling to get the water blown out of the return lines in my in ground, often by myself requiring all kinds of rigs to hold the blower secure while I tried to get the plugs in before too much backflow into the lines, I came across this product. Its like having another person available to help, without having to actually find another person to help when you are ready to close the pool. I have used them for several years and boy has it saved me hours and hours of time and ... read more trouble. I used to dread closing the pool and worry all winter if the lines actually had been blown clear enough to avoid freezing and cracking something. There ARE caps that snap on after you are done using the one way valve to blow out the lines too, to prevent water or ice pressure from seeping back into them over the winter months. Somehow I neglected to put them on last year and one of the valves got damaged but still didn't let water into the lines and fittings themselves, so I'm back to buy another. It was my fault, though, not failure of the valve itself in any way. I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am with this product. Yes, it does work and yes, I never want to have to close my pool again without them!

      Will soon see how good it is
      Replaced eyeball with this and had lack of suction at the skimmer. Will only install to winterize this weekend and hope it works to avoid draining pool.

      Great Product!!
      I WOULD SPEND A LOT OF TIME DRAINING AND REFILLING MY INGROUND POOL AT THE END AND BEGINNING OF EACH SEASON. THESE VALVES HAVE SAVED ME SO MUCH TIME WINTERIZING AND RE-OPENING MY POOL EACH YEAR. ANOTHER GREAT THING IS THAT YOU NO LONGER HAVE TO REPLACE THE STANDARD VALVES WITH PLUGS DURING THE WINTER. THEY ARE WORTH EVERY CENT!!

      Good Quality Water Bags
      Our above ground pool is a KD pool and requires the water to be at a lower level in the winter than some pools and this leaves a lot of room for the cover to balloon and blow up. We lost many water bags until we came up with our current set-up. We found that we have to put 20 water bags around our 20' pool, each tied to the pool supports. Then we run a long rope through all the water bags around the entire pool, pull the rope tight and tie it off. This rope runs around the inside of the pool ... read more about a foot or two from the outside edge of the pool. This keeps all 20 bags tied together and keeps them from indiviually flipping out of the pool when the winds are strong. Nothing breaks a water bag quicker than having it flip over the side of the pool when frozen or partially frozen.

      well worth the money
      we live in an area that gets some heavy winds at times. Keeping the pool cover in place was a major concern until we used these wall bags. I'm impressed,.. they really worked well and worth the money!
    3. 3 years ago
      Perfect!
      This is just what we needed for our winter cover. Keeps pool pillow in place & cover doesn't blow up in the wind. We have an 18 ft pool & ordered 20 of the bags.

      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.

      Worth every penny
      A must the closing your pool for the winter, everyone should have one of these plugs

      Large Air Pillow Leak
      I purchased 10 of the large pillows (4X15') and 4 of the 10 has small leaks and inflated in approximately 1-2 weeks. This is a pain since you have to uncover the pool to add air to the pillow. Removed one that was leaking and leak checked with soap solution and found many leaks along the seams (small). I was expecting the fill valve to be the problem, but they seemed fine on all of them. Appears to be a quality problem that they leak along the seams and they were not overinflated! They are ... read more working but would be much better if they did not have to be filled with air every few weeks.

      greatest product ever
      I purchased this product this year and after I installed it under the winter cover I wished that I would have ordered 2 of them and next year I will have 2 for our 15x30 pool it keeps the leaves off and that takes a lot of work out of opening the pool up next spring I can see that already so if you really want a great product this is it but if you have a large pool buy 2 or just ask the dealer because they are always glad to help.

      Better Than the ring I used last year
      I bought the 4x8 air pillow and I can't tell you how much better it worked compared to the ring float I used last year. For one thing it was easier to anchor and keep in place so when it came to putting the cover on it didn't move around or cause the cover to get hung up on it either. Last year the ring float deflated half way through winter so we will see how this holds up. It is more durable than the ring too. I inflated it halfway and I read somewhere to put duct tape over the flap(I guess to ... read more keep it inflated). So far so good!!

      Best Purchase ever
      I put the leaf catcher over my solar cover in late September. I have my pool close to a walnut tree so I not only have leaves falling into the pool, I also have walnuts. I just pulled the leaf catcher off, emptied the leaves and walnuts and put it back on. It was easy for me to do without help. It is probably the best money I have spent on my pool. I can't believe I waited so long to purchase it. I would recommend it to anyone who has trees near their pool.

      Does the job
      We have a large maple tree over our pool and every year it is a chore trying to scrape leaves off the cover during the fall and winter. Usually we have a soggy, decomposing mess in the spring. This fall we used the leaf net. Draining the pool cover through the net is not a problem. We pulled the leaf net off a couple times to clear off the leaves and it couldn't have been easier! No leaves on the cover! At the suggestion of a friend who used this last year, we will pull it off before things ... read more freeze so it will be easier to scrape snow off the pool cover.

      Best Pool Accessory
      We don't use this for winter storage, but for regular summer usage. We only use our above-ground pool in the summer, but it has a huge tree nearby. We put this over our solar cover to collect leaves during the entire swim season, rolling it on and off each time we use the pool. The mesh allows the sun to penetrate to the solar cover to warm the pool. It has cut down our pool maintenance considerably and is very easy to take on and off. Worth every penny!

      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.

      Works GREAT!!!
      I have an above ground 'bladder' pool, size 12 x 24. I have used this seal for the past two years and have never had a problem with my winter cover blowing off, a problem we experienced all winter prior to using the wrap. We use the whole roll, and wrap about 12-18 inches high. Cover has stayed on perfectly until spring, when we open the pool up. It is not reusable, as stated, but cheap enough to buy it once each year.

      Good Product!
      My above ground pool is out in the open, with high winds up to 40 - 50 mph at times, and I constantly had rips in my covers and ripped out grommets from the high winds, before using this product. Winter 2008, was the first time using, and held up for most of the time. After about 6 months in the high wind and harsh winter weather, began moving and came up on the windiest side of the pool. But when taking off cover this summer, did not have any rips or ripped out grommets in the cover like ALL ... read more other seasons. This product saved me a lot of $$$ in not having to replace a wind damaged cover, and for the price, you can't beat it. Getting ready to purchase again for this winter 'windy' season!!! Highly recommend if your pool is in a windy area to save your cover from wind damage!!!

      Kept my pool tight as a drum
      If your putting this on by yourself then its a little hard getting it started until your able to start your second time around. But over all its a good product, I used it in 2008, and I'm going to use it again this year. I started at the bottom of my cover and went around the cover and then drop down one and then brought it back up to cover the top again and never had any problem. In fact it was on there so well, it was a little difficult to remove.
