Protects from Freezing - Fits Like a "Cork in a Bottle"
The Patented Skimmer Plug™ offers a simple yet revolutionary method for servicing and winterizing above ground and in ground pool skimmers. A first of its kind, the patented Skimmer Plug™ is superior to any other skimmer closure or winterizing device on the market, being more affordable, as well as much easier to use. The Skimmer Plug™ fits all OEM skimmers without the need to replace the original skimmer faceplate. With no installation or tools required, the Skimmer Plug™ securely fits into the skimmer opening using our exclusive 3/4" thick Rovaseal™ thermo insulated layer that expands to plug and “grip” the faceplate, creating a 100% air/water-tight seal. Ice is no match for the Skimmer Plugs rigid outer plate, providing a durable and secure layer of protection through the winter.
For use with aboveground skimmers

The Skimmer Plug™ has been tested for over 5 years
Tested on a Hayward faceplate and the other a SkimSaver Lid'L Seal faceplate. We also used several test tanks for standard aboveground faceplates and allowed some of the tanks to freeze solid. Each test was for 120 days and all the skimmers where dry with no leaks or failure. This test with the water over the skimmer faceplate was done to show that the plug is water tight under extreme pressure, read below about keeping the water at the proper level.
RovaSeal™ Blocks water with little effort, this full glass has the same hydro-static pressure as a pools skimmer
This revolutionary method for servicing and winterizing above ground and in ground pool skimmers is a first of its kind, the patented Skimmer Plug™ is superior to any other skimmer closure. Here we used a 16 oz. drinking glass filled with water turned upside down on a table top. With only the weight of the glass our RovaSeal will still block the water from getting out. A glass of water has the same amount of hydro-static pressure as a pools skimmer. With the Skimmer Plug squeezed in place like a cork, it will now have even more pressure against the inside wall of the faceplate, so water never has a chance of ever getting back into your skimmer when winterizing or servicing your pool. Once the Rovaseal™ foam is pushed back past the thickness of the faceplate, the Rovaseal™ expands out behind the faceplate locking it into place.
