Having all the accessories and equipment necessary for your pool is essential, and should not be neglected. If you are purchasing accessories and equipment for your first above ground or in ground pool, or if you plan to replace outdated or used equipment, it is essential to purchase the best products available.
These products will greatly influence: the quality of your pool water, the time and money spent on maintaining your pool, prevent potential breakage or damage, keep the surrounding area safely protected, and will help in creating a pleasant swimming environment.
Certain products are essential: filtration products including pool pumps and filters (Sand or cartridge) and pool liners.
Certain equipment can enhance your swimming experience: heat-pump pool-heater, gas water-heater and solar pool-cover to increase and maintain water temperatures, and therefore prolong the swimming season, while other accessories including lights and lighting can create the ambiance for your pool.
With the use of proper accessories, maintaining your pool will be easier (nets, poles, etc.). Purchasing more sophisticated equipment, such as, a pool vacuum, or robot pool vacuum, will enable you to spend more time swimming. The ultimate choice would be to purchase the complete automation system, capable of operating your pool automatically (including smart phones apps for remote control).
A chlorine generator (a salt chlorination system,) or UV system, will clean your pool water using less chemical products.
Finally, the pool area will be safely protected with the addition of fences and alarm systems. Access will also be safer with the addition of regulatory steps, notably for above ground pools.
