Beyond simple cleaning, your pool will require you to monitor its chemical balance. When you visit a local pool store, they will provide you with basic products and instructions for the ideal water chemical balance. If you have any concerns about chemical measurements for your water, typically they will allow you to bring in a water sample. From the tested water sample, the pool professionals will be able to tell you which chemicals and in what quantities you need to add to the water.
