EZ-RES makes residential pool chemicals easy!

The Dog Days of Summer are upon us.  School is out, nightfall comes later, and the temperatures are warmer.  Naturally, children and pets alike, look forward to taking a dip in the family pool more so now than ever!  But just as we need to be mindful of pool safety for our children, we need to do the same for our pets.

Contrary to popular belief, not all dogs are good swimmers.  We know your pets are like family, so naturally you want to include them in your summer pool fun.  Before doing so, take into consideration any physical limitations your pet may have.  For example, some breeds of dogs are more “land dweller” than “sea creature” such as English, American and French Bulldogs.  If your pooch is blind, hard of hearing or suffers from arthritis or joint pain, keeping an extra close eye on them while they splash is crucial to their safety.

Another popular misconception is that is ok for pets to drink pool water.  Chlorine, algae, and some chemicals can be very disruptive to your pet’s gastrointestinal system.  Saltwater pools can cause electrolyte problems if enough is consumed.  This is not to say you should cease using chemicals to maintain your waters balance and sanitization.  Pool chemicals should be used according the instructions on the label to keep you and your pets safe.  Maintaining your pool will ensure that you and your pet are safe from bacteria, including algae, fecal matter and other harmful bodily fluids and contaminants.

Just as you do with your children, set limitations, and put safety measures in place for your pet.  Gates and fences coupled with close supervision around water in addition to training your pet on how to enter and exit the pool, can keep the pool area fun and accident free.

  • “Just wanted to thank you for a great product. After four weeks of trying several different products and also adding way to much chlorine, we can finally see the bottom of our pool. Added Revive! at 6PM last night, by the time we went to bed, we could notice a difference and when I got up this morning everything had settled to the bottom. Used the vacuum for about an hour this morning and were swimming this afternoon. Will probably have to vacuum once more, but so glad this product was recommended to us.”

  • “Easy, simple, worry free…these all describe how my pool maintenance has been since I started using EZ POOL! I have a big pool and it is not a big job with E-Z POOL, just once a week. Once the pool is open and clear in the spring, I just have Caryl’s experts test my pool sample once a week to make sure the balancing chemicals and pH are good. Algaecides are not needed. Brush, brush, brush, as Caryl recommends and my pool is beautiful all summer! Also, it is gentle to the skin and does not effect your hair color. I highly recommend E-Z POOL!”

  • “I have used the EZ Spa now for four years. It is the best spa treatment I have ever used. It makes the water feel really soft and refreshing. I use it once a week and forget it. My spa stays crystal clear. I love this stuff. Not to mention when you use EZ Spa you don’t have to buy so many other chemicals. I also noticed that EZ Spa is extremely gentle on the skin. I can’t say enough about how good this stuff is. Try it, you’ll love it!”
