If your plug fails and allows a little water in, the antifreeze may be enough to protect your plumbing. I actually see a greater risk of damage with a Gizmo in place - allowing the water to stay in the skimmer box to freeze.

THE ULTRA GIZZMO USES THE UNIQUE SEALED AIR CUSHION OF THE GIZZMO COMBINED WITH A BUILT IN BLOWOUT TUBE. Cover Draining: Although the mesh center drain panels of your cover will allow rain water to drain into your swimming pool, they are not designed to drain off every drop of water from your cover. The anti-freeze can cause a mess in the spring when you go to start your system and it gets sucked into your filter and blown back into 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. If not use a rubber plug and then take a plastic quart bottle fill about 1/3 with small rocks and put in the skimmer. If you do not want to use Gizmo plugs and want to use black rubber-type plugs instead, that is OK as long as there is something in the skimmer to allow for water expansion when it freezes. The use of gizmos prevents the skimmers from cracking, plugs the pipes and allows the water level to remain high for the cover so that rain water does not cause a lake on top of the swimming pool cover – possibly causing it to fall in.

It is strongly recommended that you open your pool early to avoid the green “swampy” water that occurs when strong sunlight and temperatures over 80 degrees are present. As long as you have the GIZZMOS, those big green plugs for the skimmers, you can keep the water at the regular level.If there are rips or tears in the cover that are repairable, patch them with either vinyl swimming pool patch (for vinyl covers) or with a swimming pool cover patch tape ( for lightweight covers) or with a heavy duty duct-type tape. I doubt you will have problems in NY (Assuming you are in Long Island) as the weather is not that severe where ice expands with tremendous force. But this is all based on my experience with an IG pool, so I can't open a drain to allow water out of the skimmers. The New Super Gizzmo is 16 inches long and installs in big, deep skimmers of most inground swimming pools. The only time that a swimming pool needs to have the water lowered is if you have a gunite or cement pool with tile around the top, you know, at the water line.

Teflon tape is a very thin, white tape used to wrap the threaded ends of pipes to improve the water tightness of a joint. This is an area of a little controversy with some people, so we are going to tell you how we close the pools here in Spain. The incredible Ultra GIZZMO skimmer freeze protection device uses the unique sealed air cushion of the GIZZMO combined with a built in blowout tube.Realize that the higher their water level is through the winter, the better it is for the pool cover.
