Cleaning Equipment

To keep your pool in top condition, you will need a few things to help keep it clean.

Tele Poles:

Telescoping poles, or Tele poles, are the first thing that most pool owners buy. Tele poles can come in a variety of length and quality. Check the size of your pool and how long you would require your tele pole to go. Most extend and then twist lock into place. Most tele poles have two holes at either end, which can accommodate a variety of accessories.

Skimmer Nets:

The most popular pieces of equipment that are used as accessories of the tele pole are the skim net or leaf rake. The skim net is a flat mesh that allows you to skim the surface of the pool to pick up debris and leaves that are floating. This should be used regularly to prevent items on the surface falling to the bottom of the pool.

Pool Brushes:

Pool brushes can be used to help prevent algae and other dirt from developing on the walls of your pool. The brush is a more sure way of eliminating these films of dirt than vacuuming alone. To be sure that you pool is clean, your pool should be brushed at least once a week. There are several types of pool brush, depending on your pool type. Give us a call if you need help.

Vacuum Head:

You can vacuum your pool for an easy clean up. The vacuum head attached to a tele pole, and then a vacuum hose is attached to the vacuum head. Pools should be vacuumed regularly. However, if you have an automated pool cleaner, then vacuuming may not be as necessary. Again, give us a call for advice.

Vacuum Hose:

This vacuum hose is attached to the vacuum head and telescoping pole. The other end should then be attached to a vacuum line (this should be somewhere around your pool). The water and debris inside the vacuum head are then pulled into the filter pump basket by the vacuum hose. After vacuuming your pool, please remember to clean your pump filter basket.

Tile Brush:

A Tile Brush can keep your tiling in your pool remain fresh and clean. By regularly brushing between the tiles with a tile brush, you can keep away dirt and algae. Tile brushes can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so best to choose one that is most suitable to your pool.
