The following pool accessories are necessary for maintaining an Intex pool:
- An above-ground pool vacuum.
- A skimmer (long net on a pole)
- Floating chlorine tablet dispenser.
- Pool maintenance kit (pH and chlorine testing kit)
- Pool cover to keep the pool clean/prevent evaporation of water.
- Shock chemicals or a saltwater system.
Regarding this, should I put chlorine in my Intex pool?
For the greatest protection against algae, bacteria, and cloudy water, Intex pools should maintain a chlorine level of 2.0-4.0 ppm at all times. If you opted for the Intex Salt Chlorinator, you can make your own chlorine by adding the correct amount of Pool Salt to the water.
Moreover, should you cover pool every night?
You should cover your pool every night for several reasons. First off, a pool cover saves energy and conserves water by decreasing the amount of make-up water. Also, it reduces the consumption of chemicals, and finally, it saves a lot of cleaning time since it keeps the debris out of the pool.
How often should I shock my Intex pool?
The bleach recommended for pools is chlorine. If you don’t want to keep emptying and refilling your small inflatable pool often, this is an option. But, use the right amount of chlorine bleach for pool sanitization. The standard measurement is a quarter teaspoon for 10 gallons.
Small inflatable or plastic kiddie pools and water slides don’t have the same protection against germs that a swimming pool, hot tub, or water playground do. That’s because it is unsafe to add germ-killing disinfectants, such as chlorine or bromine, to the water in kiddie pools and water slides.
