Our Favorite Pool Accessories

Our Favorite Pool Accessories

Summer is in full swing here in Austin, which means the temperatures are above 100º and the kids are bored. Thankfully, you have an in ground pool to keep everyone busy and cooled off. At Crystal Clear Pools and Spas, we specialize in pool renovations from the smallest job to a complete remodel. However, sometimes all you need are a few accessories to change the look and function of your pool, as well as a few toys to keep it fun and fresh.

Pool Lighting: Most pools are equipped with lights so you can swim in the dusk and early morning, or if you simply want to add ambiance to your backyard in the evening. If you are looking to add a splash of color or a fun conversation starter for your next pool party– try some floating lights. There are many choices of floating lights available for both above ground and in ground pools. Our favorite are these Jellyfish Floating Lights that illuminate vibrant colors on the pool’s surface as well as underwater.

Pool Toys: From basketball hoops to water guns to volleyball nets – there is no shortage of pool toys to choose from. Our favorite is the Floating Table Tennis set. Not only does the table float, but so does the paddle and ball. It’s a great way to keep your kids entertained or to add a some healthy competition to your next pool party.

Pool Alarm: Not all pool accessories are fun – sometimes they are just Functional. If you don’t have an alarm on your pool, we urge you to consider purchasing one. There are many types of pool alarms; ones that attach to the gate of your pool or exterior door, wristbands for kids and pets, or in ground pool alarms. In addition to a pool alarm, we certainly recommend taking other safety precautions such a lockable fence and a pool cover.

Pool Accessory Organizer: Now that you have a lot of pool accessories, it’s time to keep them organized. There are many pool organizers out there such as benches, boxes, and buckets. Our favorite, however, are hanging mesh organizers which saves floor space and allows the water to drain so the toys dry quickly.

Pool Fencing: We often hear that ‘Good Fences Make Good Neighbors’, but at Crystal Clear Pools and Spas, we believe that ‘Good Fences Make Safer Pools’. Our final favorite accessory is pool fencing. Fencing can be easily installed by a pool professional and can prevent children and pets from getting into the pool unsupervised. There are a variety of fences to choose from: Mesh, Wrought-Iron, Vinyl, and Glass. We love the modern look of glass which renders the fence almost invisible, however can be difficult to keep clean. Regardless what material you choose, fencing in your pool is the best investment you can make.
