4 Must-Have Swimming Pool Upgrades

Looking for a fun way to cool down this summer? Consider a new pool build from Platinum Pools and Spas, designed to your exact specifications, complete with these four must-have swimming pool upgrades to ensure clean, sanitized, and clear water all summer long.

Swimming Pool Upgrades


At the heart of every pool is the pump. It, along with the filter, is responsible for circulating and purifying the water. A top choice among pool professionals is a variable-speed pool pump. These pumps are incredibly energy-efficient and are, therefore, an economical choice. Some models are compatible with pool automation, as well; call for details.


Often referred to as the “lungs of the pool circulation and filtration system,” the filter purifies the water by effectively removing contaminants (Hayward, 2020). There are three types of filters: cartridge, sand, and diatomaceous earth. The latter is known more simply as DE filters. The type of media filter you’ll need will depend on your pool’s circulation/filtration system, size, as well as personal cleaning preferences.


Pool cleaners are designed to prevent a buildup of dirt, debris, and other pollutants by vacuuming the bottom and sides at regularly scheduled intervals. Most are operated every two to four hours, depending on the size and shape of the pool, and frequency of use. Powered by the pool pump, these cleaners also help to circulate chemicals, which helps maintain proper chemistry levels.


Extend the convenience of your smart home to the outdoors with pool automation equipment. Today’s systems allow you to control, manage, and monitor all aspects of the pool from turning on the lights to scheduling the cleaner using your smartphone or tablet. Making it even easier to use, advanced equipment can also be voice-operated; call Platinum Pools and Spas at (480) 888-9200 to learn more.
