You need the right pool cleaning accessories. Making sure you have everything before you begin. The most common accessories that you will use are:
A telescopic pole (most of the cleaning accessories can attach to it),
A leaf skimmer (also known as a leaf net),
A pool brush (one that is suited for your type of pool) and
An automatic pool cleaner or vacuum.
These are the very basic accessories that you will need to clean your pool.
Pool maintenance is really important. Having a pool means that you can enjoy the refreshing sparkly blue water any time you want to, but to achieve this, you need to maintain your pool. Set up a schedule for cleaning, so that you know that you take care of your pool in the best way possible. Most pool maintenance companies propose that the floor and walls of your pool be brushed on a weekly basis. There are a variety of brushes available that can be attached to the telescopic pole, if it is not attached to one already. These brushes are not only essential for the inside of the pool, but can also be used to clean the patio area around it. For the sake of easy storage, it is always easier to buy one telescopic pole with accessories that can be attached.
Floating leaves and sunken acorns - If you have a garden and trees, chances are very good that you will find normal garden debris, leaves and even unfortunate insects, floating on the surface of the water. To get rid of this eyesore, you can use the leaf skimmer, attached to the telescopic pole, to skim the unwanted swimmers off of the surface of the water. This is also a handy tool to scoop up anything that lies at the bottom of your pool. My brother used to play with his toy cars on the deck and almost every time, a car will “crash” off “the cliff and into the ocean”. As you can imagine, he quickly learned how to use the leaf skimmer in the “search-and-rescue” mission. Boys... Skimming the leaves off the surface of the water should be done at least once or twice weekly, but let’s be honest – if you see something lying around, you pick it up. Therefore, to avoid hours of hard labor later on: just clean up when you see the leaves.
