In The Swim Pool Winterizing and Closing Chemical Kit
Winter Stain-Away: Specific formula made for winter pool closings. It is able to prevent staining from metals and minerals. It also helps prevent scale formation that is often found around the waterline.
Winterizer Algaecide: Designed to work with all the other items in each Winterizing and Closing Chemical Kit. Winterizer has a proprietary polymer blend providing superior protection against algae. Long lasting formula will ensure it will last all winter.
Chlorine-Free Pool Shock: Safe to use on all surfaces and will not damage your pool cover. With its ability to oxidize the water, this will help with eliminating contaminants. It also will not reduce the effectiveness of other chemicals used in winter closing.
Time-Release Winter Pool Floater: Dispenses a set amount of non-chlorine chemical for your pool months after its been covered. It's key in removing carbon dioxide from the water eliminating a primary food source for algae. Simply poke the holes on the floater until you reach your pool’s volume of water or gallons specified on it.
Winter Sorb: Patented non-toxic molecular foam that can absorb up to 40 times its own weight. It will soak up residual lotions, oils, and scum preventing clogging of the pool’s plumbing. Its ability to attract grime and oils allows you to toss it in the pool which will give you an even area of coverage.

We recommend to start winterizing the pool when the water begins to stay below 60 degrees
Clean and Balance
The first step in pool closing is to clean and balance the water as this will set you up for a more successful close. Make sure to skim, brush, and vacuum the pool to get rid of debris and other sediment that may have built up. Then once the pool is clean, test the water and balance all the levels so that they are within their desired ranges. Add the appropriate amount of chemicals to bring all your levels into balance.
Shock & Algaecide
Shock the pool one more time with a quick dissolving chlorinating granular (Dichlor) to help sanitize the water. Then add In The Swim Algaecide for preventative maintenance of algae growth. Use the recommended dose of shock and algaecide according to the label instructions. As you add these, have your pool filter pump in operation so the water is in circulation. Complete this process a few days before you begin to winterize and close your pool.
Adjusting and Balancing
To help simplify and save you time in winterizing and closing your pool, we recommend using one of our kits. We offer many options and they come with everything you need to treat up to the specified gallons your pool has. Using one of our kits will give you peace of mind knowing that come springtime, opening your pool will be a breeze.
Lower Water Level and Clean Filter
Lower the water level in the pool to around 4-6 inches below the skimmer. Clean your filter to get rid of all leftover debris so you will start with a fresh filter when you next open the pool. We recommend taking all your above-ground pool filter equipment indoors for the winter. This will help prevent possible damage and cracking from freezing water. For in-ground pools, the lines and plumbing need to be drained, plugged and filled with antifreeze. Make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for protecting your underground pool lines.
Drain and Plug Lines
This step is only required for in-ground pools. First you will want to close the valves and then drain or blow out the lines. Once completed, plug the line with a winterizing plug that is appropriate for your use. Proceed to fill the line to the skimmer with pool antifreeze. When you open your pool in the spring, you can vacuum the pool antifreeze or drain into the pool since it is non-toxic. Place a skimmer guard into the skimmer to help prevent ice damage that acts as an ice compensator.
Cover the Pool
The final step in pool closing is to cover your pool to complete the winterizing process. Take your time in the last step to install the correct type of cover for your pool. There are different types of covers such as winter covers and safety covers. Each have their own features and benefits so be sure to research which one would work best for you.
