If you have a swimming pool in your garden, then you will know just how important it is to keep it maintained. However, many of us are guilty of getting so caught up with the maintenance side of things that we often forget the main reason that we got the pool - to have lots of fun. We know this, which is why we have made it our business to supply pool owners with fun pool accessories.
A Closer Look at Some of the Things We Sell
Below are some of the amazing pool accessories that you can find on our website. Each one is bound to be an absolute hit with whoever makes use of your pool.
Wireless Floating Speaker
If you have a pool party, you obviously need music. Many people will go inside, point their speakers towards the pool, turn the volume up as loud as it can go, and annoy the neighbors. However, there is a solution to this, and they are wireless floating speakers. These are 100% waterproof, have a number of different volume levels, and even have a built-in subwoofer. They can connect to any portable device, meaning that you can play all of your favorite playlists.
Water circulation is very important in pools as it stops the water from turning stagnant. Okay, you will already have a pump, but a fountain does not only look cool, it can help to move the water around more. You can adjust the height and direction of this fountain and it can be used for above and inground swimming pools. Not very good when it comes to directions? Don’t worry, it is very easy to install.
Place this on the patio and you will always find a nice, warm towel when you step out of the pool. It keeps your towels at 49 degrees Celsius and shut offs automatically, so you do not need to worry about your towel catching on fire. It can hold two big towels or three to four smaller ones.
Float Storage Bin
Does your yard always look like a hurricane blew through? If so, it is easily fixed thanks to this storage bin that allows you to store all of your pool accessories in the one place. There is a compartment on top where you can store your floats. The bin is well aerated, meaning that the toys will dry quickly when placed inside. It is very easy to set up and you can move it about easily due to the fact it has wheels.
Outdoor Cooler Table
Okay, so you don’t technically need a pool to have one of these, but it is perfect for those who do. Why? Well, it means that you won’t have people going inside and dripping water all over the place to get a drink. This great cooler can hold 40 bottles and 60 cans. Get one of these for those pool parties that you hold, and you won’t run out of cold drinks. Your drinks will stay cold for around 12 hours. When the summer is over, you can just use it as a nice patio table.
We Do Not Forget about Maintenance Though
Okay, we did say that it’s important to remember to have fun with your pool, but you still need to keep it maintained. Therefore, we also sell a whole range of important maintenance equipment, some of which can be seen below.
Water Test Strips
It is very important to test your pool water regularly. This allows you to see whether you need to add more chemicals to the water to prevent the growth of bacteria and algae. These strips are very easy to use and will help you keep a track of everything that you need to. From the chlorine levels to the total alkalinity to the pH, and to the total hardness. All you need to do is take a strip, hold it under the water for a couple of seconds, and then compare it to the chart that you are given.
You pool would turn gross pretty quickly if not for the chemicals that you add on a regular occasion. If your pool smells like a pool you would find in a hotel, you need to shock it. Not many people know this, but your pool shouldn’t smell like anything. If you can smell the chemicals, it means that the sanitizer level is low. Shocking your pool will increase the sanitizer levels and kill any bacteria or algae.
When your pool has a bad case of algae, the first thing that you will need to do is scrub it off the walls of your pool. This is where an algae brush comes in very handy. The steel bristles can easily scrape stubborn algae off walls and steps, meaning you don’t have to break your back. If your pool has vinyl liner, you should choose an algae brush that has nylon bristles as stainless steel bristles could end up damaging your pool.
If your pool filter is not functioning properly, then it stands to reason that your pool will start to get dirty. Therefore, you need to make sure that you regularly clean the filter so that it continues to work how it should. Furthermore, regular maintenance will ensure that your filter lasts long. Filter cleaners will get rid of any residue and help to prevent cloudy water.
A pool cover can keep a lot of debris from falling into your pool, which will save you a lot of headaches later on. When you shut the pool down during the winter months, you add a lot of chemicals to prevent algae and bacteria growth. Covering your pool will then ensure that your water doesn’t get contaminated and will save you the hassle of having to scoop out piles of leaves and dead bugs when you want to use it again in the summer months.
