Opening a pool. It’s something you may or may not look forward to doing.

Or will you? Read on to learn about the essential items you need for your pool area. Keep your pool area clean with a trash can, one that’s durable and functional, and attractive and weather-resistant too.

The Top Essential Pool Items You Need for Your Pool Area

While opening a pool can take some time to do, it’s worth it. However, it’s not completely ready if you don’t have the area set up. Here are must-have essentials to complete the process.


Pool Floats

You can’t open your pool without having pool floats. They come in all shapes, sizes, and styles. For example, you may choose to float around in a bright pink Giant Flamingo inflatable. But since it sits two, you may want to ask your family member or friend to join you. Enjoy the summer fun!


Frog Critter Escape Mat

Depending on where you live, you may have some critters who like to hang around your backyard. Help them out by using a Frog Critter Escape Mat. It’s a great way to help chipmunks, frogs, lizards, turtles, and other critters get out of your pool. If you’ve been wanting a solution to avoid the skimmer, the escape mat may be just what you’ve been looking for.


Pool Vacuum

You don’t want to break your back when cleaning your pool, do you? With the flick of a switch, the Aqua broom swimming pool vacuum will remove algae, bugs, dirt, and other debris from your above ground or inground swimming pool. Imagine not having to connect to the filter or use a pump. Cleaning your pool has never been this simple and easy!


Pool Heating Mat

Keep your pool’s water warm with a pool heating mat. Noir™ Heat Squares trap and retain the sun’s powerful thermal energy and help increase and maintain the water temperature. They also reduce water evaporation and pool chemical loss. The pool heating mats can be used with an above ground or inground swimming pool. And since they’re made out of durable, heavy-duty vinyl, they won’t blow away.


Pool Storage Bins

All it takes is one gust of wind to blow away your pool floats and toys, which means it will cost you money to replace them. With mesh pool storage bins, you can keep your beach balls, floats, swim goggles, waterproof speaker, and much more out from underfoot and where you can easily find them. You can even store small items in the side pockets. Pool storage bins are a great solution for air-drying accessories and toys to resist mildew. You may even want to pair it with a Pool Noodle Organizer and Rolling Storage Bin with Top Shelf to keep your pool area neat and organized.
