Based on our comparisons and many hours of research, here are the 7 accessories we recommend for your pool.

1 – A solid protective cover

The first barrier against dirt, pollen, insects and more, the protective cover helps to reduce many undesirables in your water in a physical way.

To guide you in your purchase, we recommend that you opt for a solid model that will withstand various weather conditions. You can also look at the models offered by the brand of your pool. These brands often offer the right cover for their models to ensure that you get the right size.

Our recommendation for inflatable pools

Bâche de protection 28023E Intex

This 4.57m diameter cover is ideal for pools up to 4.24m in diameter. And despite its affordable price, it is still made from a good material.

2 – A fairly long landing net

Of course, the ideal is to have a pump to clean your pool, but if you don’t have one, a landing net is always useful. Of course, it is a tool that requires a little energy and time, but it is much less expensive than a pool cleaner.

You should know that different brands offer handles with different tips. Some of them include, for example, a brush tip that can clean the walls. However, we do not recommend kits that include a vacuum cleaner. We know they look good, but they are often not powerful enough to be really effective.

With a surface area of 29.5 x 31.5 cm, this net is large enough to quickly collect a maximum of dirt from your pool. We also recommend the following handle which is compatible with this model.

3 – Test strips to check the water

Whether your pool has just been installed, has been left outside all winter or you are looking for ways to maintain it throughout the summer, it is very important to regularly check the quality of your water.

There are various digital and strip solutions available for this purpose. In our opinion, the second option is the least expensive. After all, a digital device can quickly become expensive and we are never safe from malfunctions. With the chemically reacting strips and the immediate result, you can be fairly confident in their revelations.

Our recommendation

Tube de 50 bandelettes de Bayrol

This is a quick and easy way to check chlorine, ph, alkalinity and algaecide – the most important elements. However, the instructions are to be found in the comments. Nevertheless, we are sure that they are effective.

4 – A floating chlorine dispenser

For above ground pools that are placed as soon as the weather is back, it is better to use a slow chlorine dispenser. This type of chlorine acts slowly but steadily (unlike chlorine powder which acts quickly to eliminate algae, bacteria, fungi and others if you have left your pool during the winter for example).

We recommend that you choose a dispenser with an opening wide enough to receive the pebbles you buy. Some of them are only 20 g while others are 250 g, which impacts their size.

Our recommendation

Doseur Flottant Bestway

Available with a diameter of 12.7 or 16.5 cm, this floating chlorine dispenser is the perfect choice for your home.It can be filled with 20 or 200 g chlorine pebbles respectively. Easy to open, just fill it and put it in the water.

5 – A filter to match your pump

As basic as it may sound, it is important to check that the filter of your pump is still good. You can do this by cleaning it regularly and removing any dirt that has clogged it, or even by vacuuming it out before the first pool installation of the year.

However, even after taking good care of it, you will have to change the filter after a while. For this, it is best to refer to the model your pump is equipped with. And while it may be tempting to choose a brand that is not well known on the internet for its low price, in our opinion, it is wiser to opt for the reference brand to be sure that you do not have any unpleasant surprises. Especially since these filters are not that expensive if you buy them in sets.

6 – A pool cleaner for large pools

When you have a larger pool or an in-ground model, the easiest thing to do is to opt for a robot.

7 – A foot tray

A small accessory that doesn’t look like much but is very useful, the foot bath helps to keep your pool clean for longer. In fact, by rinsing your feet before entering the pool, you remove a good part of the dirt that you may have accumulated under your heels.

To make your choice, we recommend that you choose a model that is large enough and wide enough: large enough to accommodate all sizes of feet, and wide enough to avoid accidents between visually impaired people without glasses and children.ants overexcited.
