Here are some items you will need to properly winterize your swimming pool. You will need to use a winter plug in each swimming pool return inlet. We also reccommend using a Gizzmo skimmer plug for each skimmer. The Gizzmo skimmer plug is designed to absorb the exspansion of winter freeze-ups in your skimmers. You can find both of these items here http://www.royalswimmingpools.com/Winter-pool-cover-products.htm#plugs
