    Winterizing plug sizes

    To all you winterizing types:

    Shockingly in May in Tucson, AZ pool stores do not seem to have winterizing plugs in stock

    So, I need to order a couple to allow me to replumb my pad.

    I need 1 for my skimmer to pad line and 1 for a return eyeball that is flush with the wall (and I have to figure out how to get the ball out first).

    I think the return is a little less than 2" diameter and I am not sure what the diameter is in the skimmer (probably pretty standard).

    Can anyone tell me which sizes of the winterizing plugs HERE I need?

    Or is there something else I could find locally to temporarily plug the 2 places?

    Thanks.

    You should be able to get the rubber test plugs at Lowes or a similar store.

    Are those the non-tightening ones that just press in? For my purposes that actually could be enough.
