What is this thing?

Postby RyanLB51 » Sat 17 Jun, 2017 16:44

Hi I had my pool closed last winter and everything was put into a bucket. I'm attempting to open the pool myself this summer and wanted to know if this thing I found in the bucket has any significance. Picture of it - https://m.imgur.com/HI4qI01,8xfohJx

They look like pipe sealing plugs, are they adjustable?

I'm not sure, how do I know if they're adjustable? If they're used to close the pools in the winter why didn't the people that closed the pool use them? Are they extras?

What are they like on the other side, is there an adjuster that expands the rubber
They might have been a different size or extras as you suggest
Have you opened the pool yet, did you remove any plugs?
