The Story Behind PLUGZIT

Invented in Switzerland. Made in Europe. Delivered Globally.


Hello, and welcome to PLUGZIT. So glad you're here. 


Here is a little background story from the Inventor about how PLUGZIT came to be:


"I have owned various sized above ground pools over the years. Summer 2020, whilst mowing the lawn during lockdown, I heard a loud  <CLANG> and water started to gush out of my pool. 


It took me some moments to realise that I had driven over a stone, and it had shot through the side of my pool liner.


​I raced to the hardware store (luckily it was open), and bought every glue, tape and patch they suggested. None of them worked 100%.  I also needed to clean around the hole, try press bubbles out, wait 24 hours for the glue to bond and some said to drain the pool. I just wanted something that would plug the hole and be done with it. Eventually, I taped the hole inside and out, and tried to put the fact it was still dripping out of my mind.

The next morning, I woke up thinking "What If " and went to my computer to sketch my idea to plug the hole. Later that day, I asked a friend to help me bring it to life on his 3D printer - A month later, I had a prototype.

I tried it out on my pool, and when friends and family saw it, they suggested I make more so I did some research to see how many above ground pool owners have the same problem. And so began this journey."

We hope when you fix the hole in your pool with PLUGZIT that it will make you smile.
