For alot of swimming pool owners in San Diego, it makes sense to hire a swimming pool service company to care for their pools routine maintenance and service needs. Quite often, many pool owners do this because they don’t have the time to keep up with cleaning their pool and the maintenance can quickly become a headache. Things like balancing the water chemistry of their pool and other essentials can be daunting for homeowners. Still, even if you are working with a San Diego Pool Contractor – there are a couple of essential pieces of equipment that no pool owner should be without to perform the most basic pool maintenance between visits.


Your friendly San Diego Pool Builders – Premier Pools & Spas offers this quick checklist of pool equipment items to keep on hand:

1: Pool Brush for Cleaning Walls & Tile

Pool owners should keep a tile brush and a pool brush on hand. Plan to take a couple moments a few times a week to brush down the interior pool walls and tiles. Your builder will tell what kind of brushes to use for your specific pool material type.

2: Telescopic Pole

Here’s one item no pool owner should be without. Ever pool contractor knows that a telescopic pole is one of the most useful tools a pool owner can have. These poles quickly adjust to the necessary length needed and allow for various attachments and pool cleaning accessories. The skimmer net, one of the most often used pieces of pool equipment — can attach to the telescoping pole and allows you to scoop out leaves or other little bits of debris before it sinking to the bottom of the pool. A leaf rake is also a useful attachment for scooping up any debris that may have fallen to the bottom of your pool.

3: Water Testing Kit

A ph water testing kit is super useful between service visits, this is even more true if there is a sudden rainstorm or dust storm or if live in a desert area like the southwest. If you’re planning to test the water between service visits to find out if it needs an adjustment in water chemistry, you may want to call your pool builder for additional advice before making these changes yourself.

4: Vacuum System

It’s hard to commit hours on end every year to vacuuming out leaves from your pool. Especially if your property has many trees in close proximity. A vacuum system for your swimming pool can be a godsend. They come in either the robotic type, built into directly into the pool itself as an in-floor cleaning system or in manually-operated models. This is a piece of pool equipment that’s useful between pool service visits if you find your swimming pool becoming dirty. A vacuum will clean the pool walls and floor and keep debris from clogging up the filter basket.

This has been a helpful hint from Premier Pools & Spas of San Diego. Remember, autumn is just around the corner and if you’re looking to upgrade to an in-floor cleaning system or automate some of the ways that you clean your pool, why not give us a call or send us a message.
