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" & 2" tapered pipe.
The Ultra Gizzmo skimmer freeze protection device uses the unique sealed air cushion of the Gizzmo combined with a built in blowout tube. The choice of 1-1/2" or 2" tapered pipe threads allows the Ultra to accommodate most skimmers. The integral blowout tube provides the option to use the Ultra Gizzmo as a suction line extension to clear the lines without lowering the water level in the pool. 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. For a professional fit; the Gizzmo can be used with Teflon tape. The Gizzmo is designed for single season use.
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.
