The average pool owner pays hundreds of dollars for supplies each season. Storing chemicals, inflatable rafts, tarps and solar covers can be a bit of a challenge, however. A separate pool area storage shed is ideal for housing all of the necessary paraphernalia. The shed should have several shelves for storing chemicals and toys, with those used most often within easy reach. Plastic storage bins are perfect for holding life vests, rafts and other inflatables. String a line across the shed to hang tarps or solar covers to dry when not in use. During the winter months, fold these covers and place neatly on shelves or in a storage bin.
