Top 8 Pool Care Supplies You Need This Season
As the summer approaches, you and your family are likely eager to begin using your pool as soon as possible. However, with the ongoing pandemic, it is now more important than ever to maintain a clean pool for you and your family’s safety. In addition to chemicals, there are a variety of maintenance supplies that can help you keep your pool clean and crystal clear this summer. In this article, we have outlined some of the best pool care supplies you need for the upcoming summer season.
Shocking your pool is one of the most important parts of water care. It helps prevent the build-up of bacteria and keep you and your family safe, even with frequent use. IPG Shock, available in several convenient sizes of packaging, is the perfect chemical solution to keep your water clean all summer long. Remember to shock you pool once a week or once every other week depending on how frequently it gets used. If you notice a “hotel pool smell,” that means it is time to shock your water.
Tub Clean Acrylic Surface Cleaner is a great product to keep your water line clean of scum, grease, and grime. It can also be used to keep stairs and other exposed portions of the pool clean.
Filter Cure and Filter Pure Filter Cleaners can be used to remove build-up of mineral deposits and dirt in your filter system. Although sometimes overlooked, this cleaning step is essential for ensuring your filter system will continue to operate smoothly and efficiently to clean your pool water.
Manual or Robotic Vacuum
A great addition to any pool cleaning routine is a manual or robotic vacuum. The benefit of a robotic vacuum is the ability to clean the pool without the hassle or time commitment of traditional manual systems. Many modern robotic vacuum models even come with remote access to allow you to control the vacuum from anywhere!
Pool covers provide two important benefits to homeowners. First, they help prevent heat loss overnight, whether you are heating your pool directly or relying on heat trapped from the sun during the day. Second, the cover can help prevent debris such as leaves and sticks from getting trapped in the pool and skimmer.
Water Test Strips
Finally, the best way to keep your pool clean and safe this summer is to regularly check your water chemistry and pH with test strips! Both tests can ensure that your cleaning routine is effective.
