The Gizzmo is one of the most popular pool products ever invented! Simply screw into skimmers of in-ground or above-ground pools and forget about winter worries! Skimmers will not crack, even if they freeze. A must for in-ground pools and great for above ground too. Just place the Gizzmo into your skimmers to absorb any expansion caused by freezing water. The freezing water will actually compress the Gizzmo instead of expanding outward and cracking your skimmer. The bottom of the Gizzmo fits a 1-1/2" internal thread.
The Regular Gizzmo skimmer freeze protection device is 9 inches long and installs in short skimmers found in both above ground and in-ground swimming pools. The Regular Gizzmo has 1-1/2" threads and features a generous bar style grip for easy handling. It is designed to absorb the expansion of winter freeze-up in swimming pool skimmers. For a professional fit; the Gizzmo can be used with Teflon tape. The Gizzmo is designed for single season use.
How the Gizzmo Works:
Every pool has a skimmer. When water freezes it expands. The expansion breaks the skimmer. The Gizzmo absorbs the expansion. The water crushes the Gizzmo instead of destroying the skimmer. It's that simple! The Gizzmo 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.
