How Do I Clean Out A Paddling Pool?
Using a pool cover is an effective way to ensure water stays clean, like these Bestway Pool Covers from Amazon*.
Using soapy water is good to clean your paddling pool, but to ensure water is kept algae and bacteria free you really need chlorine. You can buy chlorine granules* to keep that water clear.
If you use your paddling pool a lot, or have a hot tub, then it might be worth buying a pool vac like these pool maintenance vacuums* from Amazon.
