About this deal

The only time that a swimming pool needs to have the water lowered is if you have a gunite or cement pool with tile around the top, you know, at the water line. Join our promotional newsletter and be first to know about upcoming sales, special offers and other promotions - no spam, we promise. Remember, the tubes not only hold the cover on the pool, but also prevent wind from blowing the cover up. The New Super Gizzmo is 16 inches long and installs in big, deep skimmers of most inground swimming pools.

If you notice part of the cover falling into the swimming pool, pull it up and properly reset it right away to prevent damage. Realize that the higher their water level is through the winter, the better it is for the pool cover. Also, you do not have to remove or “lower” the pool light provided that you keep your water at the normal level. I actually see a greater risk of damage with a Gizmo in place - allowing the water to stay in the skimmer box to freeze.AFTER POOL WATER LEVEL IS BELOW SKIMMER, SCREW THE ULTRA GIZZMO INTO EITHER 1 1/2" OR 2" THREADS UNTIL SECURELY SEATED IN SKIMMER. This is an area of a little controversy with some people, so we are going to tell you how we close the pools here in Spain. Then they used to have to remove the light and drop it to the bottom of the pool because if the pool water froze, it might expand and actually crack the light. Our entry-level winter pool cover is built with strength and durability much like other winter pool covers costing twice as much.

The use of gizmos prevents the skimmers from cracking, plugs the pipes and allows the water level to remain high for the cover so that rain water does not cause a lake on top of the swimming pool cover – possibly causing it to fall in. If air is coming out of the threaded area, then the threads on the Gizmo may be stripped (not sure). safe way is to reblow the line and plug it again with a new gizmo if you can get the broken piece out. The skimmer covers themselves are strong enough to stand on, but have a finger hole which will allow water in.The Ultra GIZZMO features double threads with rubber gaskets; a blowout tube with a rugged cap and generous lug style grips around the top for easy handling and convenience. You know, if we have a bad winter and part of your cover falls in the pool, you’ll just have to vacuum it again when you open it, so most people would rather just do it in the spring and only have to do it once. If there are rips or tears in the cover that are repairable, patch them with either vinyl swimming pool patch (for vinyl covers) or with a swimming pool cover patch tape ( for lightweight covers) or with a heavy duty duct-type tape.

Mesh Panel: To ensure proper drainage, make certain the mesh center drain panels are clear of leaves and debris. Pools that are drained down low cause a lot of undue stress on the swimming pool cover thereby shortening its life – as well as exposing the swimming pool liner to the air and causing it to prematurely dry out. Teflon tape is a very thin white tape used to wrap the threaded ends of pipes to improve the water tightness of a joint. The freezing water will actually compress the Gizzmo instead of expanding outward and cracking your skimmer.By rejecting non-essential cookies, Reddit may still use certain cookies to ensure the proper functionality of our platform.
