While you are checking off your spring cleaning list, have you thought about working through your pool supplies checklist as well? If not, now is the time to take action.
Summer is right around the corner, and the experts at Doughboy® are just as excited as you are! We want to make sure you are ready to enjoy your Doughboy pool to the fullest, so we have compiled a pool supplies checklist for you to use.
Section 1 of the Pool Supplies Checklist: Water Care
The most important thing to make sure you have this summer to keep your pool running smoothly is water care supplies. Without this, your water will be in a not-so-stellar situation faster than you realize.
Your Doughboy Dealer can advise you about the best chemicals to keep on hand. It depends on your equipment, but here is a list of the most common chemicals most homeowners need:
- Alkalinity Increaser
- pH Increaser
- pH Decreaser
- Test Strips or Kit
Having these chemicals at the ready will ensure you are never caught off guard by any problem. You can test your water weekly to be sure all is well and correct anything that is out of balance. Also, be sure to bring a water sample to your local Doughboy Dealer for professional water testing. A professional analysis before pool season starts will get you off to a great start. Plus, it’s a good idea to bring in a sample at least once a month to have the pros help you stay on top of water care.
Grab these items from your nearest Doughboy Dealer to be sure that you have high-quality pool chemicals that will do what is needed.
Section 2 of the Pool Supplies Checklist: Cleaning
Keeping your water clean means keeping your pool clean as well. This is imperative to everyone’s safety and enjoyment of your pool. With this in mind, you will also want to have some items on hand to keep your pool clean.
Our Premium Maintenance Kit includes the necessities you’ll need:
- Wall Brush
- Clear View Vacuum
- Leaf Net
- 16’ Telescoping Pole
- Leaf Rake

Brushing the sides of your pool regularly will keep algae from growing too much along the sides. You will also want to vacuum your pool regularly to remove any gunk from the water. The net is used to remove large debris from the pool such as bugs and leaves.
Section 3 of the Pool Supplies Checklist: Circulation
Something often overlooked when opening your pool is to make sure the circulation of your water is still going strong. You’ll want to take time to look at your skimmer and filters when setting everything up. Otherwise, your water will never stay fully clean, even with chemicals.
