Keeping the Pool Clean and Well Maintained Using Basic Pool Supplies

Summer season is all about enjoying the heat of the sun on the beach. However, for those who are unable to leave their homes, the next best thing is the pool. In order to completely enjoy the pools advantages, it is necessary to maintain the area. To do this, the owner of the house can either opt for a pool service company's service or to sustain the pool using pool supplies. The process of cleaning and maintaining the pool can be an exciting activity for the family aside from the fact that it is cheaper in the long run.

Staple Pool Supplies

In order to clean and maintain the pool, the owner needs to gather some pool supplies. These pool supplies are usually found on hardware and specialty stores. Here are some of the basic pool supplies that are needed to maintain and clean the pool:

  • Pool Cleaner:  In order to clean the pool externally, and to collect sediments and debris that are abundant in the pool, this vacuum cleaner is needed. It only needs the intervention of humans during the start and end of the activity. This item is usually powered by batteries. The very first of its kind was developed in 1912.
  • Pumps:  The pump is a staple in any swimming pool supplies stashes. It is the circulation system that keeps the water on swimming pool clean, as well as ensures that the chemicals are thoroughly mixed in the water. Chemicals like chlorine tend to settle down; that is why to ensure that the solute does not concentrate on one part, it is to keep the water circulating though not necessarily all day. The pump can also be used during cleaning as it drains out the water out of the pool basin which will make it easier to scrub the pool basin.
  • Filters:  Another one of the pool supplies needed to ensure that the pool is clean throughout is the filter. Filtration is done to ensure that pollutants are removed from the system, to kill any potential harmful microorganism, minimise the contaminants and more. There are different types of filtration system that can be introduced in a swimming pool like sand filtration, cartridge filters, diatomaceous earth filter and consecutive dilution. A filtration system is usually employed together with the pump and cleaner.
  • Pool chemicals:  In order to maintain a sanitized pool, pool supplies like chlorine and bromine are introduced. Both of these are economical sanitizing agents. At a specific concentration, it can help ward off harmful microorganisms without causing any damage to the skin of the swimming pool users. These chemicals can also last for a long period of time unlike other chemicals that lose its potency once exposed to a change of environmental conditions.

Aside from these basic pool supplies, the owner of a swimming pool should also think about buying beach floaters in order to fully enjoy the summer feel. They can also opt to buy a cabana and set up a barbecue party to have that tropical feel even if they are just in their backyard swimming on their own clean and well maintained swimming pool.
