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

      Perfect fit
      A simple thing like plugs often give us fits - the wing nut turns the screw and they don't tighen or the rubber cracks - not the case with these, installed them out of the package - perfect fit and operation

      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

      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.

      Works Great!
      I bought this last year around this time and just threw it in and covered my pool. When I opened my pool again at the end of April my pool was a clear and clean looking as it was when I covered it. I didn't use any other closing chemicals, just closed off and drained my pump and let the ball do it's work.

      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!

      Great Winter Algaecide
      I buy the winterizing kit every year and a extra quart of winter algaecide to add in march never had a problem with the water when opening the pool. great products from in the swim

      long lasting

      Not Perfect but Very Good
      My water was crystal clear, but I did have algae growth on bottom. I just couldn't get it to clean up when we opened. After a water test we found the phosphorus too high, so it looks like we had other issues. All is crystal clear now!

      Great Product
      This was recommend by our pool installation contractor. We tried the Pool magic and have used it for the last five seasons.

      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.

      I'm sold!
      Short version: this stuff works! Longer version: For the past several years I've been opening my 20,000 gallon (w/ mesh safety cover) pool to find it so green and nasty looking (due to the mesh safety cover), that at times I thought draining it might be a better option. That said, I figured I would give this [Pool Magic Plus Phosfree Pool Cleaner] a try, especially since it was still relatively warm when I closed the pool. I did the normal closing procedure, but this time added Pool Magic ... read more too. Then in March, I added a second bottle (as the product recommends). Well, I just pulled the pool cover off and... WOW! This stuff REALLY works! I was expecting to see the usual algae green water that's so dark and 'thick' you can't see the bottom of the pool (or the steps for that matter). However, this year, not only is the water not green but, for the first time EVER, I can actually see the bottom of the pool (even in the deep end)!

      Algaecide 60 Plus
      as ordered, shipped on time, good price, good product
    2. 9 years ago
      No more scrubbing the pool.
      I used to scrub my pool even the chlorine level was adequate. Then I tried some cheap copper based algaecide and it worked really well. But I later discovered stain spots around my pool. Did some more research and found polymer based. Expensive but a perfect solution to save the labor. Owning a pool is easier now, totally worth the $

      Best general algacide
      I have used this product from ITS since the mid-1980s. My pool is a gunite (concrete) pool with an epoxy paint finish (no liner). I've had a salt cell system for a few years and my need for chemicals, other than salt, has dropped dramatically, but I still use Algacide 60+ in thee spring when opening the pool and during the summer if I see any algae at all (my robotic cleaner doesn't get in the corners real well) and I use 1 quart for winterizing. Great product. I've tried some others but have ... read more always come back to this one.

      Good Products, Good Price
      I have been using this kit for the past 7 years to close my in ground pool and it works quite well. My pool opening is easier thanks to the winter chemicals included with this kit.

      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

      Complete kit
      This kit has everything needed to get the pool ready to winterize. Just add it to the pool and you are done.

      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.

      Last year's experience brought me back!
      I ordered these products a year ago for my pool closing. Since they worked so well last year, my pool was just closed with the same products THIS year!!

      No Regrets
      Perfect! Second year using this bundle for my 40000 gal inground pool. Makes it very easy to open up in the Spring. If you haven’t hired someone to open/close your pool, this is the way to go!

    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
