4 Fun Things To Do With (And In) Your Pool

Naturally, a pool’s most fundamental purpose is to cool you down on sticky summer days. But a well-maintained pool can also serve as the focal point of countless hours of fun for your friends and family. Cooling off is great, but cooling off while having a ball takes the joy of pool ownership to a new level! With just a few simple additions, you can transform your pool into a recreation hotspot. Consider these possibilities:

From Climate Control To Combat Zone!

The kids (and the adults) will get a kick out of what a few water blasters and squirt guns can do to turn up the fun dial for your pool. The market is filled with countless toys and projectile contraptions designed to maximize your soaking power! Whether you prefer the small and subtle, or have a taste for massive weaponry that will leave your target utterly saturated, equip yourself with the weapon of your choice and let the good times roll!

Create Your Own Aquatic Sports Arena!

The purchase of just a handful of sports-oriented swimming pool supplies can not only pump up your pool’s enjoyment factor but can go a long way toward getting your kids off the couch for some good, healthy exercise. Basketball, volleyball, golf, capture the flag, aqua-frisbee…countless activity options are available to get your family out of doors and moving around!

Have A Tiki Party!

Few summer events are more traditional (or more fun) than a pool party. With just a few minor tweaks and additions, you can transform your standard pool party into a tropical Tiki soirée! Add a few yard torches, lei necklaces, some tropical music and pina coladas by the bucket, and voila! You’ve created a summer event that your friends and family will remember for years to come. As a special touch, consider laying down a cloth and some cushions at poolside for a luau-style feast!

Safety Can Be Fun!

While hosting a Tiki party is an awesome idea, it may be a little bit on the adult side. But what about a themed party, just for the kids, that’s a little out of the ordinary? Consider hosting a pool-side swimmer’s safety class for the neighborhood, complete with a certified trainer and hamburgers galore! Imagine your investment serving not only as a hub for good times but as a means to empower kids to enjoy a safe and accident-free summer!

Getting the most out of your pool need not be all cleaning equipment and proper pool chemicals (though these are definitely important!). With some creative and adventurous thinking, you can take your pool’s usefulness beyond the occasional dip and transform it into a festive summer lifestyle.
