Spend less time maintaining and more time swimming with these four pool maintenance hacks.
When the weather is perfect and your inground swimming pool beckons you, you don’t want to have to worry about swimming pool maintenance. You’d rather hop right in and enjoy the rest of your day at your backyard oasis, right? We know! So, we’ve compiled this list of four swimming pool maintenance hacks to help you spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying your inground swimming pool.
Improve Your Skimmer With Pantyhose
Now you have a use for that pair of pantyhose that you accidentally ripped the first night you wore them. Pantyhose are great for catching smaller debris floating around in the pool. Place a pair of panty hose over your pool skimmer or grab a few other items to Make A DIY Pool Skimmer.
Remove Oils With A Tennis Ball
Place a couple of tennis balls in your pool and let them float around. The materials in the ball will absorb any oils left behind by sunscreen, natural body oils, hair products or makeup.
Clean Your Pool Cover With A Leaf Blower
Uncovering your pool after the winter can be a challenge when your cover is piled high with soggy leaves. Use a leaf blower to quickly unbury all the hard-to-reach areas of your pool cover.
Keep Snacks Within Reach With An Inflatable Pool Donut
Never waste time leaving your pool for snacks again, or worry about having to spend time cleaning up snacks around the pool. Keep your snacks nearby at all times with an inflatable pool donut. Just place a plastic bowl (wide enough to fit tightly) inside an inflatable pool donut and let your snacks float with you in the pool.
