One of the biggest misconceptions about above ground swimming pools is that they are difficult to maintain. That is simply not true, especially when you have the best accessories to ensure that your pool is always clean and working properly. Every Bestway pool that we have already comes with a filter pump so you don't need to worry about cleaning the pool. In case you need replacement filter cartridges for the pumps, we've got you covered as we also have them.
Enjoying a good swim is one thing, but you can take your swimming experience to a whole other level with the right accessories for your pool.
What Types Of Pool Accessories Can You Buy?
Pool accessories come in a variety of forms, each with their own unique features, build quality and wildly different price-points to boot.
1. Quality Of Life Products
After investing in a swimming pool for your yard, it’s essential you’re making the most of the newest addition to your home. Naturally, you’ll want to purchase a few key accessories that will significantly improve your quality of life when using your pool.
2. Entertainment Products
But what good’s a pool if you’re not sharing with family and friends? You need a way to keep the party going, or a way to keep your kids happy while you take 10 minutes to relax in the water. That’s where these products come in.
3. Maintenance Products
After all the fun and enjoyment, you still have to clean up at the end of a session, and you can’t forget the importance of keeping your water well-maintained. It does feel like a chore (because it is), but a few choice buys will make your life easier.
Consider products like a floating fountain to aerate the water better and ensure your filters are working effectively, or even just a simple pool cart to give your kids somewhere to store pool toys once they’ve finished in the water.
Swimming Pool Maintenance Tips
Many think that having a pool in your backyard requires a quantity of work that is not worth the joy of cooling off during the summer. However, owning a pool isn’t actually the big task you may believe it to be, in fact it’s quite easy with some routine maintenance and care.
Clean the surface regularly
This can be slightly tedious, but well worth the effort that you put in; skim the surface of the pool a couple or few times a week.
No one likes emerging from the water with a dead bug on their face, and it certainly is much easier on your filter and circulation system when less debris is floating around.
Vacuum the pool often
This does not need to be done as frequently, but still should be done around once a week. Doing this will help keep the pH levels of the water at a healthy level, and keep from gross algae building on the ground and walls of the pool.
You can do this by hand, or to help yourself you can buy a vacuum that will run automatically and maintain the cleanliness of the pool. Some stubborn areas may arise, which will call for using a brush or other cleaning utensil.
Manage your filter correctly
Three kinds of filters exist: cartridge, sand, and diatomaceous earth filters. Which one you use depends greatly on how often you use the pool and how often the filter will need to be cleaned.
Be sure to manage how clean or dirty you let the filter get; a filter that is too clean will not work as well, and of course this stands true for it being too dirty.
Use a pool cover or enclosure
Pool enclosures & covers are a relatively inexpensive solution to keep leaves and debris out of your pool and at the same time acting as a safety measure to stop anyone falling in.
