    Closing Accessories

      Great Purchase
      It was great to put into the skimmer while closing up for the season and not having to worry about it freezing and cracking.

      Easy Enough
      Just purchased these this year so I don't know if they work or not yet. The were very easy to install the only problem I see is that there is no holes in the top to allow you to blow out the lines this make it a little more difficult. But other than that I think they were okay.

      Implode due to vacuum pressure
      Simple to use, just screw in. I have a large in ground pool and my lines create a natural vacuum when they're drained during winterizing. Found that these units do implode on themselves under that pressure, but not enough to fail. Work fine though despite this.

      Great Product!!!
      We have used it for the last 3 years and will order a roll this fall also. It works great keeping the air from getting under the winter cover. It requires being stretched really tight when applying to the pool. We have an 18' pool and we use the whole roll. When we wrap our pool, we wrap it in three different levels so it is about 30 inches high all around the pool. It pays to check it a few times during the winter to make sure it hasn't worked itself up during heavy winds. Last year during a ... read more windy time in April, ours worked itself off and ended up in the neighbor's yard. If it's installed correctly, it is a GREAT PRODUCT!!

      Strong
      I bought this wrap on Sept 3 to help in closing my pool for winter. I live in North Carolina. We just went through the winds and rains of Florence for 2 and a half days and this held my pool cover in place and never let go. We were not in the main storm and live north of Charlotte but we had strong gusty winds and very heavy rain. I will most definitely use this product again.

      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!!!

      Perfect fit, better than expected tight but easy to install and had the vacuum hose plug

      Good winter plug
      easy installation for saving water that took seconds to install, it plugs right in and fits flat against the skimmer, I tried pulling it back out and it had a suction on it so I just left it alone for fear I might break it. I went back out to look at the skimmer 10 days later and its still sucked into place with no drips. I think you have to push it off from inside behind the plug since there was no directions that came with it. This was money well spent.

      Well we bought this and just installed it,,
      I love the thought of closing our pool I just a hour instead,, of all day, love that it fits perfectly!!

      easy line purging
      I prefer not to drop my water level for winter closing. This valve makes blowing out the return lines a piece of cake. Eliminates my need for line antifreeze. Awesome product.

      One way valve.
      This valve works very simply. I have been using it for several years. Just ordered my second one.

      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.

      They are holding water and the lids snapped on nicely.

      Tired of buying Bags Every year or two, These are a great solution.

      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.

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

      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.

      Wonderful Pool
      This is the third year I have used your winterization kit and rather then opening my pool, like my friends with pools, to a green slime alge mess my pool was clear with minor debris on bottom. The kit did a wonderful job with minimum expense. Took hours rather then days to have a swimable pool!

      Easy to use and clear water in the spring!
      We have used this winterizing kit for several years now. It is so easy to winterize the pool with this kit, and the price is definitely cheaper than the kits from Leslie's. Every spring when we open the pool, the water is crystal clear and ready to go for the summer. This kit is a winterizing must!

      Great Product
      I have used this winter kit several times and it has kept our pool crystal clean throughout the winter. When we take off the winter cover in the spring, all we have to do is fill the pool up and put the opening kit in and we are good to go. This makes maintaining the pool through the winter a breeze - great product.

      Brilliant
      So easy to use and made covering the pool a breeze!

      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.
