Swimming Pool Accessories Overview

by: Kathryn Whittaker
Some people say that shopping for the perfect swimming pool can be as mind-boggling as shopping for a new car. The choices of make, model, and accessories are just as overwhelming, and advice from competing salespeople often make little sense.

The most important swimming pool accessory is the pool cover. You will use the plastic cover to seal the pool for the winter and to protect the pool from the harsh elements such as wind, ice and debris. A durable plastic cover will also prevent children or pets from taking an unplanned dip. The pool cover usually needs something heavy to keep it in place, such as sandbags or plain fabric straps.

Another popular swimming pool accessory is a skimmer to collect dead leaves, branches, insects and other debris from the water surface. A skimmer looks like a huge badminton racket that collects the floating objects. A sturdy solid skimmer will save you money on the pool maintenance. Ideally you should clean dead leaves daily, because too many leaves in the pool can damage your water filters and make you use more harmful chlorine to keep water clean.

If left untreated, a concrete pool surface can be quite hard on skin and not too appealing. Many people opt for cheerful pool paints to keep the pool tidy and fun. Pool paints are usually water- or rubber based, or epoxy. When used regularly, pool paints will greatly prolong the life of the swimming pool protecting its surfaces from sun, harsh elements and chemically enhanced pool water.

Antifreeze is an essential pool accessory for those who live in colder climates. When sealing the pool for the winter, you should drain the water out of the swimming pool plumbing and pour the antifreeze into the pump and pipes. Now you are ready to seal the pool for the winter.

Pool furniture can be as basic as possible. You can limit yourself with two or three lounge chairs and a table, or you can decorate your pool side like a second living room. No matter what style you choose, remember to pick the pieces that have rubber no-mark coating on the legs so not to disrupt the pool paint. The ideal pool furniture should be able to withstand the winter under a plastic cover and still please your eye in the spring.

Swimming pool accessories and pool supplies is something that you can cut corners on. If your budget is running low, you can still keep your pool clean and safe with discount swimming pool supplies that you can buy online or in swimming pool store outlets.

However, thereís something that you canít really save on: pool chemicals. Choosing discount chemicals may often mean choosing outdated or otherwise low-quality and deteriorating supplies which in the long run could cause pool problems that could cost you more.

On the Internet you can find a lot of swimming pool equipment stores that can sell to you for less since they donít have overhead store costs. Choosing and buying your pool accessories can be quite time and money consuming, but carrying out proper maintenance costs much less than large repairs.
