When you get a new swimming pool or you decide to remodel an existing one, you’ll need to decide what you should install to keep your pool running. At Skovish we offer and install all kinds of pool equipment for Shickshinny and Luzerne swimming pools, so the only question is what you want.
The pump isn’t up for debate. You absolutely need one to regulate your pool water and filter out all the debris, algae, and other contaminants that build up over time. Pool pumps offer several kinds of filtration systems, and the pump system will also have the salt-water cell if you have a salt-water pool.
Pool cleaners come in all different shapes and sizes. Suction cleaners work like wet vacuum cleaners to scrub the sides and base of your pool and then suck up the debris they free, Pressure cleaners blast debris off the sides of your pool using the pumping system and then grab debris with a little suction. Robotic cleaners operate independently of your pumping system and don’t need much oversight, but they tend to be expensive.
Pool heaters are essential if you want to extend your pool season, especially in a state as far north as Pennsylvania. Pool heaters can use ambient heat, solar cell heat, electricity, or natural gas. The second two have higher running costs, but they’re also a lot more effective, especially once the air gets cold and the days become short. You can also enhance the heater’s effect by getting an automatic insulated pool cover that traps heat in the water.
A chemistry controller is completely optional since you can always manage your pool chemistry yourself, but having one takes a lot of time and work out of your weekly pool maintenance. Simple models can monitor and adjust the pH balance, but advanced models can regulate every chemical in your pool and come with a wireless connection that lets you monitor the system remotely and order replacement chemicals automatically.
