How to keep your pool clean and what supplies do you need?

Swimming is becoming an activity enjoyed by more and more people in the comfort and privacy of their own backyards, rather than something that’s only enjoyed in hotels or on vacations.

Even with the advent of new technologies, pool cleaning and maintenance can still be a cumbersome task but it’s not as tedious process as it used to be. Additionally, though hiring a pool maintenance professional is the way that many pool owners are opting for so they can simply enjoy the pool without the muss and fuss of cleaning.

If you opt to clean your own pool it’s easier than ever before because of the access you have to products on the market. Here are some tools we like for keeping your pool clean and healthy for your family and friends:

Brushes – The straight and corner brushes are used to scrub debris and algae and come with suction to clear out the debris that was removed
Skimmers – A skimmer also helps keep insects, leaves and other debris out of the pool. Leaves clog filters and can stick to the sides of the walls and floor, making a slippery mess
Testing kits – In addition to having your cleaning supplies, you need a testing kit to make certain the chemical levels are in balance.
Pool filters – remove bacteria and small dirt particles that enter the pool; the filters need to be checked and cleaned regularly.
Pool cleaners – these devices also clean up the sediment that settles on the bottom of the pool and sometimes get into the hard to reach places. There are robotic pool cleaners on the market which make this task even easier than before.

Keeping your water clean and bacteria and debris-free is essential to providing a safe swimming experience for all those who frolic in the pool. Whether you undertake the maintenance yourself or hire a professional, ongoing pool cleaning is essential.

Keep Your Supplies Clean And Ready With Interior Design

It seems to be a frustrating process of opening paint in multiple buckets and testing them to find the correct paint color for your wall. You may need to try more than once to open the lids only as they’re often stuck. Your brush’s bristles might be sticking up all over. Your roller paint may be stuck with 3 layers of old paint and its handle may be stuck due to the now-dried wet paint that have been left on it.

 

It seems like enough for you to forget any painting project. It doesn’t have to be his way with a few careful steps you will never have any of these problems again.

 

First the paint, never pour the paint out and spill it over the label that tells the manufacture and the sheen of the paint. Never put a can of paint away with the top of the bucket wet with paint. Take a cloth and clean even and especially in the crevice where the lid sits. Always label the paint, (I put this on the front of the bucket) the room you used it in and the date. Usually the vital information is on the top of the lid that is where the numbers for the paint colors are, guard this info, you never know when you might use it again.

 

I am a crazy person about my brushes, I have a lot of them and they are in almost as good of shape as when I purchased them. I purchase only good quality brushes, in the big picture they will pay for themselves in the quality of the paint job.

 

Always clean your brushes with hot soap and water and let dry with the handles in a bucket so the bristles are not touching the bottom of the bucket. Never lay your brushed down always hang them up or have them with the bristles up. You can rarely fix a brush that has gotten bent or frayed; it is pretty much a done deal.

 

Roller pans that have layers and layers of paint are hard to work with, the roller has a difficult time getting paint on it in an even layer. If you hate to wash out the pans like I do, simply use an inexpensive plastic liner and throw it away.

 

In my house you had better run for the hills if you have used a roller and not cleaned it or taken it off the handle before it has dried on and now will not budge. I will hunt you down and make sure you are the one fighting to get that old crusted on dead roller.

 

All this sounds easy enough and common sense and it is but often we are tired when we finish a big paint job and just ready to stop. Get in the habit of doing these little things you will be so happy you did, especially when it is time for the next paint job.
