Swimming Pool Supplies - A Must For Your Pool

By: roryhhawkins
Whether you have constructed a new pool for your family and friends in your own backyard or you've had one for years, add life and value to your pool by getting the right pool supplies.

You will be spoilt for choices with the various options available in the market that add value to your pool. Floating chairs and lounges are a good way to relax and what better way to sip your favorite drink while you float on the water. Inflatable pool toys and giant floaters are big hits with kids. Pool scooters, boathouses, igloo-floats, rockers are all available as the perfect pool supplies. Giant sharks and fishes are also good options to create that Jaws effect. And if you think that blowing up these toys will be a big task then help is at hand with electric inflators. You can also add pool sports and have your own special water Olympics. Various options like hydro basketball, volleyball or polo are available.

An important part of pool supplies are solar heaters, air blowers, hydro jets and under water lighting systems. Solar heaters consist of panels or coils made of plastic or metal through which water passes to increase the temperature from the sun's heat. These are good for cooler climates. Air blowers force air through holes in the floor. Hydro jets blend air and water to create the effects of high-velocity turbulent stream. Under water lighting systems will add beauty to your pool during night-time. For this you will require a light niche that will house your underwater light fixtures.

Maintenance of your precious pool is one of the most important things to be kept in mind. Gone are the days when you would manually clean your pool. Electronic vacuums are available which will clean the bottom and sides of your pool in no time. Vacuuming is easier if you use clarifiers. These are nothing but chemical compounds that gather or precipitate suspended particles so they may be removed easily. Chlorine is used as a disinfectant to kill bacteria and algae. Chlorinators dispense chlorine in the water at a pre-controlled rate. Filters remove insoluble and suspended particles by circulating the water through a porous substance, which may be sand, cartridges or diatomaceous earth (D.E.). Adding an electronic pump to your pool will help the filtration, heating and circulation processes. Solar and winter covers are also available to protect your pool when not is use. Given the choices, you will find the right pool supplies that suit your budget.
