When we talk about pool supplies, we have to say right away that there are several categories which fall into the term.
One of the categories includes everything connected with the maintenance of the pool itself – valves, pumps, filters, etc. Swimming pool accessories are another category and all sorts of thermometers, cleaners, manual vacuums, vacuum hoses, leaf masters with bags, etc are included in this group.
A large group is the supplies for water care – chlorine tablets, algaecides, stain treatments, clarifiers, pool salt, filter cleaner sprays and many more. And finally – the group that is most interesting – the fun pool toys!
What are the necessary pool supplies for a home pool?
Every swimming pool, whether in-ground or above ground, requires the same pool supplies of chemicals. Of course, the concentration and the necessary amounts will depend on the size of your pool.
Balancing pool chemicals can be quite a difficult task. Pool chemicals are important for maintain clean and safe water. Having the water filtered is not enough as filtration helps in the removal of dirt but does not maintain the balance of the pool water. There is a wide variety of pool chemicals which take care of the chlorine, alkalinity, and pH levels.
Pool supplies for fun in the water
Again, this large group of pool supplies includes all the range of inflatables, floating toys and incredibly creative game kits.
The pool toys make the experience even more complete and the pleasure even greater.
You may have attractions in the pool which are an additional investment – a pool slide, waterfalls or other water features or opt for the more practical and much cheaper inflatable options.
The possibilities are endless – floating lounge chairs, a basketball net, volleyball, a climbing wall, all sorts of pool sports equipment – and it is only up to your creativity to choose which ones are best for the fun summer pool activities of your kids and family.
