Maintaining Spools

Maintaining spools can be more affordable than a larger pool. Because of the size of the pool, there isn’t a need for a lot of chemicals and cleaners. Shocking the pool, testing its calcium levels and pH levels as well as ensuring your pumps and filters are properly running is important. When you look at heating your pool, you are going to find you’ll be getting a smaller heating bill. You are going to see around $300 to $550 per month in expenses which includes testing kits, chemicals and operation of the heating systems.


Since spools can be a little boring due to their size, you can add special features to make the pool look more attractive. Adding an elegant entryway will not only make it easier for you to get into the pool but it will also make it safer. Think about adding stone steps and setting up a raised lounge area. LED lights within the pool enhances the look of the pool and makes it more entertaining at night. Landscaping is another great additive to make your spools look attractive.
