Having a swimming pool in your backyard is such an enjoyable benefit and today’s high-tech pool equipment and accessories can add to your enjoyment and make pool maintenance much easier. Hawaiian Pool Builders offers these five must-haves for your swimming pool.
Robotic Pool Cleaners
Very possibly one of our favorite must-haves is the robotic pool cleaner! A robotic pool cleaner moves around the pool, sucking up dirt, leaves, and finer particles and transfers them into an attached filter bag; some models feature rotating brushes or rollers that scrub surfaces. If you want to save time, energy and keep your pool clean, these cleaners are amazing! Hawaiian Pool Builders recommends & sells Pentair’s Prowler 820 shown here.
Swimming Pool Covers
An automatic pool cover opens and closes by using a motorized track system that is permanently mounted along the length of your pool and generally operate at the push of a button or turn of a key. Some pool owners prefer manual pool covers.
Pool covers offer several benefits including:
- Reducing your pool’s energy consumption and operating cost
- Prevents dirt and debris from entering the pool
- Reduces the burden on the pool’s circulation system and equipment.
Swim Current Generators
A swim current generator can boost the amount of exercise you can get while in the pool. These self-contained units are portable and when placed at the edge of your pool, they produce a smooth, adjustable current allowing you to swim in place against for a low-impact, high calorie-burning workout.
Variable speed settings offer swimmers of all ages and abilities to choose the pace as well as choosing to swim laps, jog or walk in place and do not interfere with the rest of the pool. While you’re exercising, the rest of your family can enjoy the pool as they want.
Having a control system for your swimming pool allows you to manage all of your equipment at the push of a button. You can monitor cleaning cycles, filtration and sanitation systems and control temperature, lighting, pumps, heaters, waterfalls, lighting and more. Some manufacturers offer optional remote controls so you can operate equipment from anywhere in your yard.
Pool Waterslides & Sports Accessories
Swimming laps, playing Marco Polo, splashing and relaxing on a float device are great pool activities but nothing adds more fun to a pool than a waterslide, basketball hoop, volleyball net and other sports activities. Not only do they add to the fun, they increase the amount of exercise you get while enjoying the pool!
