Owning an above ground pool is considered to be a luxury. However, it does also come with a certain amount of responsibility. There are certain types of chemicals that need to be added to the water in order to disinfect and sanitize it properly. These chemicals help to control the growth of certain kinds of algae and bacteria in the pool water. You need to be very careful when handling pool chemicals as well as when storing pool chemicals as exposure to some may lead to respiratory injuries or asthma complications as well as eye and skin irritations. Also, you need to be aware that certain chemical reactions may occur if you do not store them properly. Just a single drop of water could start a reaction with most pool chemicals.
