Pools essentially are just that, a pool. The definition of that word is "a small body of standing water." Now, the term standing water implies that there is no current circulating the water, it is just there, standing. When water is standing it collects bacteria and germs that are not good for humans to be swimming in. To prevent this, one must clean their pool regularly, with products of chlorine, automatic pool cleaners, nets, and other chemicals that are harmful to bacteria but safe for people.

The first step of cleaning your pool is to not let it get dirty in the first place. This is really quite an easy thing to do with the technology that is available today. Automatic pool cleaners such as the Zoran Baracuda Ranger Cleaner are constantly cleaning your pool for you. This particular model is an example of a "top of the line" automatic pool cleaner.

Tools like a Baracuda pool cleaner are just one of the many ways to maintain good pool hygiene. Another method, in fact a method that should coincide with the automatic pool cleaner, is the use of chemicals such as chlorine. Chlorine is usually in a liquid, powder, or tablet form and should be handled with caution. When the chlorine is put into the pool it creates a reaction with the water, creating chemicals like hypochlorous acid. This chemical is was does the damage to the bacteria by destroying the lipids of the cell wall resulting in the enzymes being destroyed as well.

With the bacteria killed with chemicals and debris kept in check with an automatic pool cleaner, your pool can be as healthy as champion horse, and last much longer than a pool that is not maintained regularly and properly. Simply, having a Baracuda circulating in the water and renewing the chemical mixture regularly will keep your pool clean, safe and enjoyable for the whole family to cool off on a hot summer day.
