    Numerous items to purchase

    Hi everyone, I recently bought a house with a pool. The previous owner relied on a pool guy who did really bad maintenance and hence the water was so improperly imbalanced that I had to get some RO done on it.

    Because the previous owner did no pool maintenance, I am missing a lot of typical pool equipment.

    I was looking to purchase the following:

    weir
    vacuum head
    vacuum hose
    skimmer net
    "solar" cover
    solar cover reel
    automatic cleaner
    thermometer
    and anything else I'm missing

    Do you guys know where I can buy all of these for a reasonable price? I was surprised to find almost all these items on walmart.com and was thinking of going that route, although some reviews have stated some of the items are of inferior quality. I also LOVE this website, so if it benefits the site if I visited some of their sponsors, I'd be happy to as well. The bottom line is I want to try to save money because the rest of my house requires so many upgrades. I refuse to go to some of my local pool stores because they seem to have inflated prices.

    thanks everyone!

    I've found that Amazon does seem to have competitive prices. The best deal though is if you are an Amazon Prime member. That way you get free shipping on many items. You can also read product reviews and ask others question on items. Might be worth checking them out.

    I'm an Amazon prime member but INYO pools has awesome customer support so I try to use them as much as possible. Helped me buy a pump, motor, slide, automatic cleaner this year.

    Alot of the stuff on your list though is readily available for comparable prices locally.

    I wouldn't think in Cali, you'd need solar anything.

    Depends on where in CA. I'm originally from the San Francisco Bay area and every pool I've been in without some kind of heat source was very cold. On a recent visit last September my friend's full sun all day pool was only 68 degrees.
