Inground Swimming Pool Skimmer Guard Expansion Plugs



The Skimmer Plug or Gizzmo is one of the most popular pool products ever invented !  Simply screw into skimmers of inground or above ground pools and forget about winter worries ! Skimmers will not crack, even if they freeze. 

It is designed to absorb the expansion of winter freeze-up in swimming pool skimmers. The Large Skimmer Guard is 16 inches long and installs in big deep skimmers of most in-ground swimming pools. It has both 1 1/2 and 2 inch threads and features a generous bar style handle. The double threads offer convenience by accommodating most skimmers with one item.

How the Skimmer Guard Works:  Every pool has a skimmer. When water freezes it expands. The expansion breaks the skimmer. The Skimmer Guard absorbs the expansion. The water crushes the Skimmer Guard instead of destroying the skimmer. It's That Simple!  The Skimmer Guard is designed to absorb the expansion of winter freeze-up in skimmers only. Winterize lines and pool as per manufacturer or dealer instructions. There are many ways to winterize a pool. Consult your local pool service technician or this web site about which method you should use.

A must for inground pools

Just place the Skimmer Guard into your skimmers to absorb any expansion caused by freezing water. The freezing water will actually compress the Skimmer Guard instead of expanding outward and cracking your skimmer. The bottom of the Skimmer Guard fits both a 1-1/2" or 2" internal thread !
