Essential sun pool supplies

If you are thinking of diving into owning a pool, or you have years of experience in the pool care, you require the right tools to properly clean and maintain your little piece of paradise in your backyard. But are you aware of what pool supplies you need?

So before you make a trip out to the nearest pool store and pull down a massive chunk of change, be confident you know what pool supplies are necessary. This shall save much of your money, and you'll be ready to take care of your pool like a legend.

Supplies speak for your pool.
It's challenging to maintain a  good pool if you don't have the right tools to do so.  So stock up on a few basic requirements, and then begin from there. There's no point in owning a pool if it's all dirty. Making sure that you have the right tools readily available will make your life easier, and allow you to enjoy your pool time abundantly.

Test Strips
One does not need to be told how vital water testing is for pool maintenance. It's best advisable to test the pool water at least once a week. Regular testing lets one know when one needs to add chemicals to the pool to prevent harmful bacteria and algae, making the pool their home.

Make sure you have stocked up on test strips. They are not very accurate as are liquid test kits, but they're quick and easy to use, and help in covering all the necessary levels one needs to keep track of like free chlorine, total chlorine, bromine (if used  instead of chlorine), total hardness, total alkalinity, pH and cyanuric acid.

Shock treatment
The pool could become a storehouse for human skin cells, oil, and other microbes there were no pool chemicals. And of all the chemicals, pool shock is one of the most important.

When the pool starts to smell like a hotel pool, it's time to give the water a shock treatment. The pool usually should not feel like anything when the water's balance is restored. The usual chemical smell means the pool's sanitizer level is too low and is no longer doing its job.

Algae
When there is water, there shall be algae, and for all their nasty growth, an algae brush is your saviour for your day. It has stainless steel bristles that will easily break algae's hold on walls, steps, and anywhere else it may be hiding. This is a real-time saviour. 

Manual vacuum.
A manual vacuum can be a lifesaver at the time of an algae infestation. Once all the algae have been brushed from the pool's surfaces, it will have to be removed from the water, and the fastest way to do that is to vacuum it up.

A lot of pool stores will have a lot of supplies which are needed to get the pool cleaned. One may find other pool supplies later on that cannot be done without. Every person has his/her ways of handling pool maintenance to reach the same end goal: a clean, healthy pool.
