Pool owners tend to get stuck in a routine as far as pool supplies go. However, new and exciting products become available all the time. Keep reading to brush up on the newest and most exiting products for pools out there right now.

Solar balls and heating panels. Solar balls work by spreading a film across the top of the pool that insulates the water. This product is dropped in your skimmer and works for thirty days. It is not toxic to swimmers and requires an incredibly small amount of work. As far as using solar panels go, using solar energy to heat your pool is the newest green trend for pool maintenance. Solar heating saves money and is better for the environment than a gas or electric heater. The sun's energy is free! The only cost is for the solar panels, which can be installed on your roof or, with above-ground pools, beside them on the ground.

Portable inflatable spas. Imagine dipping into a spa anywhere. This product is great to take on road trips, to parties, or even for use in your backyard. They are easy to set up, too, and of course easier to maintain than other kinds of spas. Only have a spa when you want to use it. Inflation and deflation is a piece of cake.

Fun underwater lights. Digital color changing lights add a fun and pretty touch to nighttime swimming, especially for pool parties. These lights come in a variety of different colors and can be set to cycle through the colors or to stay on one.

Smart pool cleaners. Look for a pool cleaner that utilizes the Aqua Smart System. This is an intelligent program that helps the cleaner thoroughly navigate and clean the pool. Rather than spending an unnecessary amount of time in some areas and not enough time in others, these cleaners know just where they need to be and how to get there quickly. These cleaners cut down on the time it takes to clean a pool, which saves energy and leaves your pool looking great.

Cover reels. Ever get frustrated with how long it takes you to remove your pool cover? How about rolling it up and storing it? Cover reels have a crank that you can turn and roll up the cover. These reels can handle even a sixty foot long solar blanket. Cover reels can make retracting your pool cover a breeze.
