Pool Care Tips For Busy Families


This is a sponsored conversation on behalf of Clorox Pool & Spa to offer you pool care tips to keep your pool clean and sparkly.

I was the “pool guy” for my pool growing up. It was pretty simple back in the 80s. And, truthfully, kind of fun playing scientist to make sure the pool was clean but swimmable.

Fast forward to 2014 and there are so many places to get pool car tips. I used to go to the pool store with my mom, schlepping a gallon jug of pool water to get tested. Then I’d get the few things I needed and my pool would be sparkling clean in a flash. Today, that’s not the case with aisles of products to tweak this and up that.

Clorox has come to change that. With a name we all know and trust, Clorox Pool and Spa products are the first major branded products in pool and  spa care. Really? Yes, until now all we had were random brands that may or may not work and we knew nothing about the company. We know Clorox, right! And it’s available at Albertson’s and Fry’s stores, which makes it even more convenient.

The new Clorox Easy 1-2-3 Pool Care™ Brand System is here to simplify pool care this summer.

The Simpler… and Smarter System for Pool Care

Step 1: Balance – Protect your pool and increase swimmer comfort

Step 2: Chlorinate – Use once a week or as needed to kill bacteria and remove contaminants

Step 3: Shock – Shock at least once a week to help keep your water crystal clear all season long

There are also products to help remedy specific situation such as algaecides to prevent and kill algae as well as clarifiers & treatments clear up cloudy water and clean and protect equipment. Those both can come in handy with the summer monsoons.

And to make water testing easier (and less lugging of water!) Clorox Pool & Spa has the My Pool Care Assistant Mobile Water Testing App. This free Mobile Water Test app turns your smartphone into an indispensable tool. Use it with the new test strip kit to get instant results and solutions at home, set your shopping list, and find a local retailer.

Cleaning Tips To Keep Your Pool or Spa Sparkling

  1. Keep the pH between 7.2 and 7.8 for a comfortable swimming experience.
  2. Thunderstorms and heavy rains not only fill your pool with excessive leaves and debris, they may also transport algae and bacteria into the pool water. Applying shock and algaecide after a strong storm will help keep your pool crystal clear.
  3. Is there a strong chemical odor coming from your pool? The cause may not be what you think. Contaminants can build up in a pool causing a strong chemical smell. Shocking the pool will help eliminate this odor. For help with a specific question, you can call the Clorox Pool and Spa FREE Helpline 24/7/365 at 1-800-SOS-POOL (767-7665) anytime.

Now doesn’t all this sound easy? Wouldn’t you rather be swimming in your pool than futzing with all the chemicals? Clorox Pool & Spa makes it Easy as 1-2-3 now! If you’re ready to try this new system, you can download this $3-off Clorox ShockQuick Tabs coupon redeemable at your local Fry’s or Albertsons stores.

Perfect timing! We’ve been trying to do it ourselves for about one year now, and we are close – I think this will help us keep it just right!

Kate, with Easy 1-2-3 in the name AND an app you can probably train the dog to keep the pool clean. And bring you an umbrella drink! Thank you for stopping by. ~ Sara
