What Kinds of Equipment Do I Need for My Pool?

If you’ve never owned a pool before, choosing the correct equipment can quickly get confusing. Luckily, the experienced team at Patriot Pool & Spa can walk you through the entire appliance installation process. We’ll make sure you have all the proper equipment and advise you on the best brands to purchase. Here’s an overview of what you’ll need to keep your pool in working order:

Pool Pump

Pool Filter
The pool filter is arguably the most important component of pool equipment. This system purifies the water in your swimming pool or spa and removes pesky debris. It works to keep your water clean and free of dangerous contaminants. Pool filters require filtering materials that will need replaced every two or three months. Depending on the type of filter you use, you may need a different material. Say goodbye to these pool pests with a top-tier filter:

  • Dirt
  • Insects
  • Hair
  • Sunscreen
  • Body oils

Pool Pump
Our equipment installation professionals are here to make sure your pool pump is doing its job. This pump circulates water through the pool and drives the heating and filtration processes. It guides water from the pipes, through the filter, into the heater, and finally, into the pool. Many homeowners find variable speed pumps are the best option for their pools, as they allow for different speed settings. Our team can educate you on the pool pump best suited to your needs.

Pool Heater
Even in the sweltering Texas sun, you probably don’t want to take a dip in ice-cold water. Pool heaters ensure your pool stays temperate no matter the reading on the thermometer. Our pool appliance installation team will determine what type of pool heater meets your needs and budgetary constraints.

Skimmer and Brush Attachments
While it may not be mechanical equipment, skimmer and brush attachments are still crucial pieces of equipment you’ll need to keep your pool clean. These pieces attach to a pole and can be used to pick up dirt and debris on the water’s surface and along the pool walls. A professional cleaning from Patriot Pool & Spa is always best, but these tools allow you to clean up your pool on your own throughout the week.

Pool Chemicals
The chemicals you use to balance your pool water are just as important as the physical equipment that power your pool. These chemicals ensure your pool is sanitary and stays as clean as possible. They keep your pool or spa comfortable and safe to swim in. Our team can walk you through the following chemicals and their uses:

  • Chlorine
  • Alkalinity increasers and decreasers
  • Metal sequestrates
  • Pool enzymes
  • pH increasers and decreasers
  • Algaecides

Consider These Optional Appliances

Now that you know which pool equipment installations you’ll need, it’s time to think about what additional appliances can further enhance your pool. While these aren’t required, they can boost your experience, whether you’re swimming laps or taking a relaxing soak.

Automatic Pool Cleaner
Automated pool cleaners are the ideal solution to reduce the time you spend on pool maintenance. While they don’t eliminate the need for periodic skimming and brushing, they greatly decrease the amount of time you’ll spend on this task over the summer. Automatic cleaners often feature the following:

  • Bristle scrubbers
  • Large filter bags
  • Precision navigation
  • Cordless designs
  • Wheels for easy movement through the water

LED Lighting
Pool lighting is an excellent choice if you plan to go for late-night dips. They ensure you can see where you’re going as you enjoy stargazing from the pool. Plus, they keep your backyard safer if you have children roaming around or guests who aren’t familiar with the layout. You can find LED lights in a range of colors.

Pool Monitoring System
Regularly testing and balancing the chemicals in your pool water is vital to keeping the water clean and sanitary. But if you aren’t careful and miss a few days of maintenance, your pool can quickly turn into a bowl of muck. Pool monitoring systems are an ideal solution to this problem. These systems keep track of chemical levels and pool temperature, and you’ll easily be able to check on your pool from your phone. Say goodbye to missed maintenance and dirty pool water!
