Many pool companies have thousands of options to choose from, so trying to find the right products and pool supplies in Toronto for your pool can be overwhelming.

To help you confidently select the supplies that are right for you, we've put together an easy-to-follow guide that breaks your pool shopping list down to the essentials so that this summer, maintenance can be a breeze.
Water Test Strips
Water test strips measure your pool's chemicals and pH in a minute or less so you can adjust your alkalinity, chlorine, or bromine levels quickly. There are many water testing tools to choose from, but water test dip strips are fast and straightforward. You can get them from most Toronto pool companies. The Seaway Pools Online store has simple and effective test strips in stock, so you can start testing your pool water right away.
Nip algae in the bud in the early stages of growth before it becomes more problematic. Algae growth can become dangerous very quickly. It causes slippery surfaces, murky water and even increases the potential for infections. The best thing about algaecide is that it won't throw off your pH levels, instead, it will work with chlorine to keep levels balanced while also preventing algae from infiltrating your pool.
It's essential to keep on top of algae, mold, and dirt. While chemicals are an effective preventative measure, an algae brush enables you to physically eliminate algae by scrubbing it out of your pool while cleaning. Pool supplies like that combat algae can be purchased online from Seaway Pools.
Pool shock is a strong pool cleaning chemical that typically can be found in both chlorine and non-chlorine versions, depending on your needs. This solution is used to restore balance to your pool by eliminating bacteria and organic waste left in swimming pools over time.
Pool Cleaning Tools
When you install a pool, you need equipment that helps you clean the everything from microscopic dirt to large debris. In Toronto, the basic pool supplies you should get for cleaning are a pool vacuum, a skimmer net, a vacuum hose, and a pool pole. You can order all of these easily online from Seaway Pools.
All-Purpose Surface Cleaner
It's best to invest in an all-purpose surface cleaner because it can be used throughout your entire backyard, from pool tiles and lining to cover and patio furniture. Find an effective all-purpose cleaner online at Seaway Pools to maintain the lustre of your pool.
Your filters won't be working effectively to keep debris, sand, and dirt out of your pool unless it's clean. A simple filter cleaner can save you the time and money of repairing or replacing your pool filters and cartridges in the future.
A pool chlorinator is easy to use and works quickly to keep your pool sanitized, balanced, and sage for swimming. Pool companies will have a variety of pool chlorinators in stock, but an automatic chlorinator that dispenses chemicals directly into your pool is recommended. This will help keep treatments on schedule and prevent issues with your pool chemistry.
Last but not least, get a pool cover. A pool cover keeps debris and pests out while also protecting against precipitation. A pool cover is a simple and effective way to protect your pool.
