When you are lucky enough to have a pool in your yard, you will want to make sure that you are getting all of the best pool accessories that you can get your hands on. This way, you will be able to have more fun in your pool all throughout the summer.
While it might be considered a pain to put the pool cover on and take it off later, it is a very important thing to do when you know that you are not going to be using the pool for a few days. You will also need to use a quality pool cover when you go to close up the pool for the winter. By using the pool cover, you will have less debris to clean out of the water when you are ready to go swimming again. Pool covers are a worthwhile investment for both protection and reducing your maintenance and upkeep.
If you like the idea of swimming in your pool at night, you are going to need to think about having pool lighting installed. You can get permanent lights put in place, or you can opt for the solar lights that float around inside of the pool. Either way, not only will the lights make night swimming a little more enjoyable, but it can help improve the safety of night swimming. You can stick with the standard lights, or pick up some fun colorful lights.
If you would like to heat up your pool water some, but you are not interested in running an electrical heater because of the amount it could cost you on your electric bills, you will want to consider purchasing a solar blanket. You simply spread the solar blanket out over the top of the water and leave it for a few hours while it does its job. It will collect the sun's warm rays, which will naturally warm up the water in your pool. This will make swimming a much more enjoyable experience for those who can't stand getting into icy cold water. Also, while solar blankets are not designed with the purpose of keeping debris out of the water, it can help a little. Simply use your pool net to gather any debris that has collected on the top of the solar blanket. This should be a lot easier than the debris floating all throughout the pool.
With those accessories, you should find that enjoying your swimming pool is going to be much easier.
