Summer is synonymous with joy and pleasure, but can also become overwhelming when the weather gets too hot. Some people are lucky enough to have air conditioning in their house, but it is clear that this is a luxury not everyone is lucky to have. There are also people who have swimming pools. Of course, these require constant maintenance. However, you can clean your pool with a simple tennis ball.

1. A lot of dirt can accumulate in your pool


Whether you have an in-ground or aboveground pool, a lot of dirt can accumulate, like hair, dead skin, sunscreen, insects, etc. It is therefore important to constantly clean it at the risk of seeing this dirt floating near you when you are lounging around peacefully…

Obviously, you could empty your pool and fill it back up with some “clean” water but it would be really expensive and horrible for the environment.

3. Why not use chlorine?


You can also choose to add chlorine to your pool but it is a chemical product. If your pet has a tendency of jumping in your pool, you should really avoid using this product since it irritates your pet’s skin. So, what can you do?

4. Try the tennis ball trick!

Instead of using chemical products, simply throw in some tennis balls.

Tennis balls are made with a mixture of nylon and wool. These are materials that have the ability to attract foreign bodies, such as dirt towards them. They will get rid of dirt and other debris from the water in no time. They will absorb grease from the surface of the water and remove dead hair and skin.
