Today’s the day! You’ve just set up your new Intex Pool in your backyard. The sun is high in the sky and you’re ready to take the first swim of the season. But as much as you love relaxing in the water, you’re still unsure about the supplies and tools you need to keep your Intex pool looking pristine. With this list of our favorite Intex maintenance accessories, you’ll be ready to tackle every cleaning job. 

Intex Pool Maintenance Kit with Vacuum, Skimmer, and Pole 

Adjustable and portable, this 2-in-1 pool skimmer kit works hard so you don’t have to. The attached skimmer pole will reach up to 94 inches, perfect for cleaning Intex pools 16 feet and smaller. Scooping up leaves and debris from the surface of your pool is quick with the included mesh net. And once skimming is finished, change out the skimmer head and replace it with the vacuum. The side-suction vacuum will clean the floor of your Intex pool with ease. All you need for operation is a standard-size garden hose, which screws into the top of the vacuum. While gentle on the floor, you’ll want to avoid using the vacuum on the walls of your Intex pool, as the sidesuction is a bit too powerful for vinyl.  

Intex Rechargeable Handheld Manual Swimming Pool Vacuum 

Stop algae in its tracks with the help of a manual pool vacuum. A manual vacuum like this Intex handheld vacuum will be gentle on vinyl but tough on dirt. Thanks to the 94-inch telescoping pole, this handheld vacuum is fantastic for cleaning metal, prism, and ultra-frame models that are 18 inches and smaller. Built-in rechargeable batteries keep the vacuum running without the hassle of a long electrical cord. Another feature we love about this vacuum is the automatic shut-off function, which turns the vacuum off anytime the head is not fully submerged in water.  

Intex Krystal Clear 2800 GPH Above Ground Pool Sand Filter Pump 

Requiring virtually no upkeep, this powerful pump will keep the water in your pool free of sand and dirt. The Intex Krystal Clear pump has 6-way valves that allow you to backwash, recirculate, and drain the water in your pool, making maintenance a breeze. Able to circulate up to 12,800 gallons, the pump will work its magic on all easy set, ultra-frame, and metal Intex models. There’s nothing better than the enticing pull of a glistening pool on a hot summer’s day, and this filter pump from Intex makes a glistening pool possible.  

16 x 32 Foot Rectangular Frame Above Ground Swimming Pool Solar Cover 

Intex knows a thing or 2 about heating your pool. Rather than fussing around with a large external heater, keep warmth in with this inventive solar panel cover. This cover uses solar panel technology to keep heat in when the pool’s not in use. When you’re ready to use your pool again, remove the cover for a warm, relaxing swim. After the hard work of skimming and vacuuming your pool, attaching this cover to the top of your pool will keep the water safe from the elements. As a bonus, this solar panel pool cover is easy to clean and can be vacuumed if any water settles on the surface. Although this specific panel fits rectangular metal, prism, and ultra-set frames, Intex manufactures a variety of shapes and sizes. 

Installing your Intex pool is just the beginning, but it doesn’t have to be daunting. Take charge of your pool’s maintenance with our favorite pool cleaning products from Intex.
