Despite what some people think a swimming pool is a lot more than just a container filled with water. Often times it is only when someone becomes the owner of a swimming pool that they begin to understand what owning a swimming pool really entails. Among the things that separate an ordinary swimming pool from a great swimming pool are the swimming pool accessories. They play an important role, and contribute immensely to the degree of pleasure derived from your swimming pool experience.
One of the most basic of swimming pool accessories you should have, as an owner of a swimming pool, is a swimming pool cleaner. The cost of hiring a swimming pool cleaning service may be prohibitive and if the pool is a small one it may not warrant the expense for so minor a task. There are basically three types of pool cleaners to choose from, suction cleaners, pressure cleaners, and robotic cleaners. Depending on the swimming pool size each cleaner carries its own set of advantages, including speed, ease of operation, efficiency and being economical.

At all times where swimming activities take place the issue of safety should be a concern. With this in mind pool handrails and ladders are considered vital swimming pool accessories and come in handy for entering and exiting swimming pools. These particular swimming pool accessories are now being constructed from stainless steel and thus eliminate occurrences of corrosion and rust, guaranteeing many years of use.
Another swimming pool accessory that has to do with safety is lighting . You’ll find that you won’t only want to use your pool during the daylight hours. Sometimes after work and chores are done a night swim may be in order. In the interest of safety it is recommended that the path to the swimming pool, the area where the swimming pool is situated, and inside the swimming pool itself, be outfitted with sufficient lighting. This will go a far way in preventing any unfortunate accidents. Learn more about pool light safety here.
Unfortunately, we don’t all have the good fortune of having warm weather all year round and even in places that do the temperature of the water in the swimming pool may be too low for swimming in comfort at times. There is a solution for that though and this comes in the form of heaters. Understandably, swimming pool owners tend to gravitate towards electric and gas powered swimming pool heaters as they are cost effective and get the job done. These swimming pool accessories are also available in solar powered models but they are far more expensive.

On the list of basic swimming pool accessories one should also add filters. To keep the water clean it is pumped through a filter, which will remove contaminants. These filters can be one of three types, cartridge filters, diatomaceous earth (DE) filters or sand filters. It is interesting to note that while the DE filters are believed to be the most effective the title of most popular goes to the cartridge filter. Learn more about choosing a pool filter here.
