Simplify Pool Care This Summer When we first moved into our house 9 years ago, my husband was NOT excited about having a pool. I grew up with one at my parent’s house so I knew we would have hours of fun all summer, but my husband was a bit more realistic. He knew that pool care can be extensive and a bit confusing.Over the years, we hired a pool company to help us out, but that really added up, so now we just manage it ourselves. Even after all this time, I’m not sure we have it completely down, so when I heard about the new Easy 1-2-3 Pool Care™ Brand System to simplify pool care this summer, I knew we needed to try it!

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

This is a new product  being launched here in Arizona first. Plus, to help us all save, there is a coupon for $3 off Tabs, so you can stock up for summer. Hurry and grab this coupon soon because it is only valid through 6/15/14. You can find the Clorox Pool & Spa care products (and use this coupon) at either Fry’s or Albertson’s.

PrintFree Water Testing Water App

I also like that there is a free app to help test your water. With the app and the new test strip kit, you can get instant results and solutions at home, set a shopping list and find a retailer.

How it Works:

  1. Search Clorox™ Pool&Spa™ “My Pool Care Assistant” on the Apple App Store or the Android App Market
  2. Select the “My Pool Care Assistant” icon to download
  3. Find the new “My Pool Care Assistant” icon that will now appear on your Smartphone or Tablet. This icon indicates that the “My Pool Care Assistant” app was successfully downloaded and is ready for use.

I know my husband will love this feature! There has been many times that he has had to take a sample of water to our local pool store to find out what he needs (and sometimes it takes more than one trip!). This free app will help us save time and money.

And with monsoon season around the corner, I appreciate this tip from Clorox Pool & Spa care:

“Thunderstorms and heavy rains not only fill your pool with excessive leaves and debris, it 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.”

We do love our pool – even my husband, who was a bit more skeptical – and we have already been in it almost every day this season. I’m looking forward to trying out the new Clorox Pool & Spa system to keep our pool crystal clear AND save money this year!

    Wow there is an app for pool care. I love it, we are house shopping so this may come in handy very soon.

  • Little Miss Kate

    My grandparent had a pool and I remember all the work that went into maintaining it. Love that there are ways now to make it easier!

  • Joyce Brewer

    My brother does his own pool care, too. It is a lot of work. But the app makes it sound like a breeze!

  • Mama to 5 Blessings

    I did not know they made this, that is great to know especially at this time of the year!

  • Courtney

    I have never had a pool at my house, but do always think they must be a ton of work. Glad there are products that can make life easier!

  • That’s cool that Clorox has a special product for pools now! I know they are certainly a lot of maintenance. Having a pool is a great thing in that Arizona heat! Here in Oregon, my backyard “Pool” is the wetlands, LOL!!

  • cookiesandclogs

    Wow, what a convenient product! That’s so cool (get it, pool, cool) that they’re making easy tablets. Especially after a winter of little to no use, this is so much easier to making sure the water stays clean!

  • mail4rosey

    That is a great way to make something a little complicated a lot easier. We had a pool when we lived down south and it was a pain in the rear to keep it right, but I loved it so (the pool, not the maintenance :) ).

  • Robin Rue

    Wow, way to make something that could really be a pain to clean a little bit easier :)

  • Krystle Kouture

    I love their bleach. Really cool to see them going in this direction as well.
