Now that the Pittsburgh pool installers at Valley Pool & Spa have installed your new pool, let’s discuss the different items you’ll need in order to clean and maintain it. There are a number of different pool maintenance products on the market, and we’re going to describe some of the most popular (and essential) ones below:

Automatic Pool Cleaner — This product continuously keeps your pool clean with little to no effort on your part. Instead, you can spend your time enjoying your pool rather than having to vacuum it on a regular basis.

Water Test Strips — Use these strips on a weekly basis so that you know when you need to add chemicals to your pool. The chemicals you add help prevent algae and bacteria from getting into your pool.

Pool Shock — This is one of the most important chemicals to use in your pool. Shock ensures your water is clean by bringing your sanitizer levels up and killing bacteria.

Multi-Purpose Surface Cleaner — This type of cleaner assists with tasks such as cleaning your pool’s waterline and wiping down the exposed parts of your pool ladder. You’ll want to clean these areas regularly to prevent bacteria and algae from invading your pool.
