      Works very well
      I've only had to use this item once when I first setup my above ground pool, but it did an excellent job of getting the chlorine levels up to where they needed to be.

      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.

      Ultimate Winterizing Kit from now on
      Although our pool is just 18,000 gallons we decided to give the Ultimate Winterizing Kit a try when we closed it last year. When we took the pool cover off in the spring the water was much clearer than years past and it took us less time to get the pool up & running. As a result we've decided to use the Ultimate Winterizing kit from now on.

      Best products ever
      Our closing kit for our pool came next day as always. We used a kit from Great Escape last year and pool was a light green so we are back with in the swim and looking forward to a crystal clear opening in spring as we have always had in past seasons. Thank you for great products and sevice. We will never stray again

      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.

      Easy to close and easy to open
      We have used In The Swim Pool Chemical Winterizing Kits for several years for our above ground pool, in-conjunction with an air pillow and a good winter cover. The kit is very easy to use, instructions are very clear. Every spring our pool is beautiful and clear, ready to top off, add In The Swim Pool Chemical Opening Kit and it's all ready for the season!

      Winterizing Kits
      I used this last fall and when i opened the pool in the spring. the water was just about clear. If it wasnt for the neighbors pine needles there would have been no work at all. Worth the extra $$ plus I got the $10 off

      Straight Forward
      Works as advertised and I have been using these for years. I find the sponge particularly worthless, but whatever, it comes with the kit.

      Excellent Results
      This winter will be the third winter I have used this product. Each year my pool is crystal clear when I pull off the winter cover. When I purchased my home from the previous owner it was Green and took me weeks and several $100.00 dollars to get it up an running. I would recommend this to any pool owner. Will Save you Time and Money in the Long Run.

      Keep pipes from Freezing
      I buy 2 gallons of anti freeze every year and my pipes have never frozen throughout the winter.

      Great anti freeze
      This product I have been using now for 4-5 years. Just fill up your underground pipes with this, seal them off and you wont have to worry about freezing, cracking pip[e, etc... at all during the winter.

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

      Crystal clear pool on spring opening
      We've been using this product for 3 years (after a horrible experience opening our pool) and we wouldn't close or open our pool without it now. Great product.

      The name says it all! MAGIC!
      We use this product when closing and opening our pool. Before we started using this product we always had a water scum line when we opened the pool. The enzymes in this product break down organics, which prevent scum-line formation. No more scrubby mitt clean-up! This product makes spring clean easy and enjoyable! Highly recommend this product.

      Openings are great with it used at closing
      Just like the review title states. Openings of my 30,000 gallon pool is easy and great with using this product at closing. I also used it at opening. I didn't get algae grow at all this late winter to opening at the end of May and I live in western MD. I will purchase again in the fall for closing and one bottle used in late winter and then for opening.

      Pool Closing Plugs
      The plugs are fine, but more expensive than at my local pool store.

      Best Open in 12 years!
      After a warm Winter and warmer Spring, expected to find a very murky pool. We judge opens by how many days after opening day it takes to make out the shape of the white drain cover at 8 foot end. Then how long to see the StSteel screws in the drain cover. WOW saw the screws as soon as the cover came off! Best Open ever -looked the same as when I closed it up.... 6 months ago. Found a dead shrew at bottom of stairs, something like this in a normally murky pool- would have taken "days" to digest ... read more with chemicals- let alone see it and scoop out. So I know I saved time and money and will buy a winter ball for the coming closing in the fall from now on!

      THE GREATEST!!
      I have had this above-ground pool since 1987 and this is the BEST product ever. I used it the winter of 2007-2008 and the pool was clean when I opened it. I thought it may have been because we had 100+" of snow. I used it again last winter and the pool was also clear this spring. I have not been using any other chemicals when I close the pool for several year because I never found that they work. THIS DOES WORK!!!

      Best Opening Ever
      The year before last we had a "professional" close our pool and opening it last spring was a nightmare. It cost a fortune and when we opened the pool, it was like a neglected pond, complete with frogs and tadpoles. Last year, we purchased a winterizing kit and the winter ball from In the Swim....WOW! This year when we took off our cover, the water was clear. There was a little algae on the sides and bottom, but it was easily brushed and filtered out. I've lived with a pool for 36 years and I've ... read more never seen a pool in such great shape in the spring. Thank you In the Swim! I've already ordered my winterizing kit and winter ball for closing this year and it's only early July!

    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
