Maintaining your pool is easy when you have the right tools and equipment. If you’re a new pool owner, you may not know the different pool supplies you need.
Here are some essential pool supplies every pool owner should have to keep their pool sparkling:
- A water testing kit – A water testing kit is a must-have for every pool owner. These little kits will alert you if the pH balance is off in your pool and can help you know what chemicals to add to your pool. These kits test the pH, alkalinity, and sanitizer levels, so you always know what you need to do to keep your pool clean.
- Chemicals – Chemicals that can help you maintain your pool include pool shock, alkaline increaser, pH balancer, and chlorine tablets. Depending on the chemical balance of your pool, you may need all or a few of these. Talk to your pool supply company to determine which chemicals are needed for your pool.
- A pool skimmer and brush – A pool skimmer is a net on a retractable pole that you can use to get leaves and other debris out of your pool. A pool brush is a great way to help keep your pool clean.
