DIY Swimming Pool Maintenance

The Easy Way to Take Care of Your Pool

Poolhop is a powerful and easy-to-use Internet resource for millions of residential swimming pool owners. Our free online tools simplify pool water chemistry and pool maintenance, and the Poolhop online store provides direct home delivery for all the pool chemicals you need. We make DIY pool care easy!

Our online tools allow you to quickly test the water and figure out exactly how much of each chemical you need to keep your swimming pool crystal clear and beautiful. With the guesswork taken out of your pool chemical situation, Poolhop will deliver everything you need directly to your front door. You can even subscribe to your own customized pool chemical delivery plan for the entire year!
