So just what is a Gizzmo?
The Gizzmo is designed to absorb the expansion of water freezing in the skimmer of your swimming pool. It is an American made product. There are currently three types of Gizzmo: Regular, Super, and Ultra.
The Regular Gizzmo is 9 inches long and installs in short skimmers. These skimmers are found on most above ground pools and some inground pools. It has 1-1/2 inch threads and a bar to grip on top for easy installation and removal.
The Super Gizzmo is 16 inches long and is designed for deep skimmers. These skimmers are found on most inground pools and some above ground pools. It has both 1-1/2 inch and 2 inch threads. This allows one product to fit multiple types of skimmers. It also has the same bar grip as the Regular Gizzmo.
The Ultra Gizzmo is the same size and has all the same features as the Super Gizzmo but with an added feature. It contains an integrated blowout tube. This allows you to use compressed air to blow the water out of your skimmer lines should that be necessary for your pool.
For all models, use Teflon tape on the threads for a professional seal. Teflon tape is a very thin white tape used to wrap threads on pipe and fittings to improve the seal. Gizzmo’s are designed for single season use and are recyclable.
