If this is your first time owning your own pool, you may be just a little surprised at how much pool maintenance and upkeep can be involved. It looks so easy when other people do it; their pools are always so blue and clear, you rarely hear about the problems that can arise, and you have never seen your neighbors pool turn that murky shade of green you just woke up to this morning! Fortunately, once you get into the routine, you will find it gets much easier. You just need to follow a few simple tips and keep at it. Nothing makes a good pool go bad faster than a pool owner that is lax about the upkeep!
Have the Proper Pool Cleaning Tools
Having the correct pool cleaning tools always makes a job easier. Here is a list of some of the things you may want to have on hand to keep that pool running in top condition.
- Long-Handled Net – Skimming surface dirt, leaves, and other debris keeps your filter from working overtime.
- Bristle Scrub Brush – Pool cleaners won’t be able to reach steps and upper walls, so having a brush to clear off these areas will help keep your pool clean and sparkling. It can be used with the same pole as your net, or you can purchase a separate pole.
- Test Kits – Keeping the perfect chemical levels is a must, and having a test kit on hand makes that job that much easier.
- Automatic Pool Cleaning Tools – This is where things get a little more expensive, but keeping your pool clean helps with the upkeep of your equipment, so the extra money spent here can end up saving you thousands in the long run and leave you with more free time to enjoy your pool!
