Having the proper equipment and chemicals to adequately maintain a pool is a must. In fact, many chemicals are used weekly in what is called a “maintenance dose”. Equipment that is essential for proper pool maintenance would include vacuum hoses, pool brushes, an extension pole, and a vacuum head. All of this equipment is very important to maintaining a clear, well-kept pool. The extension pole is used in almost every application when working on a pool. Use the extension pole while vacuuming or brushing to get to the harder-to-reach areas. Vacuum hoses are essential to keeping a clean pool. They come in many sizes from twenty-five feet to fifty feet. The size of the hose is dependant on a number of factors. The depth of the pool is a factor and so is the location of the skimmer. Choosing the proper hose length ensures that you are able to reach all areas in your pool with no problem. Thirdly, brushing the pool is the best way to keep algae out of the pool. Brushing weekly would be considered a best practice by Swim Things. There are brushes available for vinyl pools and specific brushes for gunite pools. And lastly, using the proper vacuum head is very important. Much like brushes, vacuum heads are designed to work well in either vinyl or gunite pools. Vacuum heads with rollers are designed for gunite pools, and could damage a vinyl liner. Finally, using the proper pool equipment to maintain a nice pool is extremely important, and we are happy to help you get what you need.
