Do you have a pool in your backyard? It can be great to have one in summer months as it helps you cool off and provides fun family entertainment. When we moved to California, I really wanted to get a house with a pool since we would be living in a place with great weather. My husband did not want a house with a pool since he didn’t want to deal with the cost of hiring someone to maintain it and keep it clean. We lucked out in that our house uses solar to heat the pool so we are saving some money there. When we first moved into our house, we used a pool service to keep our pool water clean. It was pricey and I noticed that they spent about 5 minutes at our house. When my husband was laid off a few years back, we were looking for any way we could to save money. I mentioned to him how little time the pool guy spent on our pool, and my husband did a little research and discovered how easy it was to take care of a pool. My husband is our new pool guy. He provides great service, the price is right, and he’s pretty cute to boot! There are some products we use to make the job easier and I’m excited to share them with you today!
We trust our pool to HTH Pool Care. We love how they provide simple step-by-step instructions to make pool maintenance a breeze. They have a color-coded system and number packaging, which makes the entire process easy to understand.
Our pool care involves a 4-step program:
Step 1: Testing and balance
Testing water may sound complicated, but it is not. HTH® products make it easy.
Step 2: Sanitize
We use HTH® Extended Skimmer Sticks for this step.
Step 3: Shock
We like to shock our pool after we have had a large number of people in it, like after a party.
Step 4: Prevent Algae
HTH® Super Algae Guard helps prevent algae from forming. Algae can get into the pool and cause your water to become cloudy and even slimy and smelly. We were able to use HTH® Super Algae Guard and swim in the pool the same afternoon.
Did you ever wonder why some pools always look like a tropical oasis? Me too! HTH® Party Potion is the secret you can use when you want to showcase your pool at a party. You can use it and still swim in your pool. Hello, backyard tropical oasis!
Since HTH® Pool Care products make pool care simple, you will have lots more time to enjoy the pool with your family.
Just think, with all the money you save on hiring a pool service, you’ll have plenty left over to do more summer entertaining!
