More and more families are enjoying the fun and entertainment of a swimming pool in their backyards. The pleasure of a pool that was once reserved for vacations and hotels, is more accessible as families are looking to enjoy their leisure time in their own homes.
There have been many advances in technologies that make swimming pools easier to maintain and they aren't as tedious as they once were. It can still be a cumbersome task to keep a pool clean. Hiring a pool maintenance professional is the way that many pool owners are opting for so they can simply enjoy the pool without the muss and fuss of cleaning.
You can clean your swimming pool yourself and if that's the route you take, it's easier than ever before because of the access you have to cleaning products on the market. Here are some tools we like for keeping your pool clean and healthy for your family and friends:
€ Skimmers - A skimmer is used to keep insects, leaves and other debris out of the pool. Leaves clog filters and can stick to the sides of the walls and floor.
€ Brushes - Use straight and corner brushes to scrub debris and algae out of the pool. The suction part of the brush will clear out the debris that was removed
€ Pool filters - Remove bacteria and small dirt particles that enter the pool; the filters need to be checked and cleaned regularly.
€ Testing kits - Make certain the chemical levels are in balance.
€ Pool cleaners - These devices clean up the sediment from the bottom of the pool and sometimes get into the hard to reach places. There are robotic pool cleaners on the market which make this task even easier than before. You can program the robotic pool cleaners to turn on when you're done in the pool for the day. The cleaner will move along the bottom of the pool, stir up the debris and suck it into itself. Once it's done you simply remove it and empty.
Even if you have a pool maintenance professional come and take care of your pool a few days a week, it's always best to at least skim the debris out daily to keep it clean and clear. Keeping your water clean and bacteria and debris-free is essential to providing a safe swimming experience for all those who frolic in the pool.
