When we put in our pool, I was overwhelmed by the options for accessories. More than pool covers and cleaning supplies, there are so many fun accessories to own if you have a pool. You can do a lot with your pool to create a wonderful backyard experience. If you’re thinking about purchasing a pool or already own one, here are some fun things to add to your collection:
Pool floats are a great way to add some fun to your pool. When I’m looking for something that will let me do nothing and relax in the sun, a pool float is just what I need.
Pool floats are also useful if you have guests over because they can make any pool time feel more like an event! Many different styles of floats are available on the market today; some even come with drink holders and speakers and can accommodate more than one person.
Add a Slide
Pool slides are a great way to cool off and have fun with your friends. If you’ve got one or more children in the family, they’ll especially love riding down these nostalgic plastic tubes into the water. Plus, they come in many different colors and designs, so there’s something perfect for every pool owner.
While attachable slides are an option, I recommend building a pool addition. Consult with a contractor to see if adding a permanent fixture fits your budget.
Although it’s unnecessary, a hot tub is one of the best ways to relax in your backyard. There are many reasons why hot tubs are great for relaxation and entertainment. They help you get rid of aches and pains, they can eliminate stress, and they bring an aesthetic to your backyard oasis. Hot tubs also allow you to enjoy time with friends or family members when they visit your home. You must maintain the patio pavers surrounding your pool and hot tub to ensure your pieces’ optimal look and longevity.
Outdoor speakers are a great way to add to your pool and may be my favorite item on this list. I can find my favorite playlist and rock out or hook it to an outdoor screen and enjoy a projected movie in the evenings. The proper placement is key, so you may consider hiring a professional to install them. Because you are working with water and electricity, professionals will make sure all wires are secured properly.
Waterproof Playing Cards
There are many reasons that playing cards are on our list of fun accessories to own if you have a pool. First, playing cards is a fun way to pass the time during those long hot days.
Another excellent reason to invest in waterproof playing cards is that they’re an excellent way to get to know your neighbors, family members, or friends when they are over. It’s an easy way to start a conversation and make a backyard barbecue fun.
Pool basketball is a fun way to shoot some hoops and beat the heat. These fun additions have make for fun pickup games. Poolside hoops are easy to install and use. Plus, they’re affordable.
If you have a pool, it’s important to remember that you can get many different accessories out of it. Whether you want to relax on your own or play with friends and family, these accessories will help keep your fun going if the weather allows.
