• Water Test Strips. Testing your pool on a daily basis is very important to determine when to add chemicals to prevent the accumulation of algae and bacteria. Ideal testing of the water should be done once a week. Going to your local pool supply area whenever you have your water tested can be good, but doing so on a weekly basis is very time-consuming especially if it’s far from where you are located. Having a test strip is always handy. To use, just simply place it in water and wait for the changes in color, then compare the strip to the color graduation scale provided in the packet. This will determine the ph in your pool.
• Pool Shock. Your pool is a reservoir for bacteria, human skin cells, and all sorts of bacteria. When you notice a change in smell, it’s time to shock your water. Having a pool that smells funny means that your pool has been poorly sanitized. Shocking your pool will rid of the bacteria lurking in your waters, as well as manage mild algae problems.
• Algae Brush. When talking about algae, good scrubbing is what you need. Pool Supplies Corpus Christi has brushes made of stainless bristles that can remove those pesky algae lurking in the pool. We also have specific brushes for specific kinds of pool materials.
• Manual Vacuum. After scrubbing those pestering algae, removing them will be the next step. For that to happen, of course, you need to use a vacuum to prevent your filters from clogging up.
• Telescoping pole. This is to help reach far places so you don’t have to go around the entire pool area. The heads are interchangeable so you can also use them for your skimmer, manual vacuum, and pool brush.
• Filter Cleaner. No matter how well you clean your pool, dirt, and muck build up in your filtration system which is inevitable. Filter cleaners remove any debris that can cause clouding in your water, making your filters more effective than they should be. Your cleaning schedule will depend on how you frequently use the pool and the type of filter that is being used.
• Skimmer. A very handy tool indeed if you are surrounded by trees or plants in your area. Those petals, plants, or leaves will eventually end up in your pool on a windy day. Let’s not forget those bugs who got in the water but can’t get out. Scooping them up is really needed so that you won’t have to swim with the types of debris in your pool.
• Pool Cover. If you’re not a fan of skimmers, then this is definitely for you. If you are not using your pool for a very long time, bacteria, algae, and chemicals would start to build up in your pool. These would cause a lot of trouble in your maintenance. A good pool cover can give you a stress-free feeling once you open up your pool once more. Saving you the trouble in the near future.
