24 Jul Pool Accessories To Keep Your Pool Fun and Fresh
Summer is in full swing here in Austin, which means the temperatures are above 100º and the kids are bored. Thankfully, you have backyard swimming pool to keep everyone busy and cooled off. At Crystal Clear Pools and Spas, we spruce up swimming pools through 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.
Here is our list of pool accessories to resist boredom, create cool atmospheric elements, and make your swimming pool the most fun in the neighborhood:
Most pools are equipped with lights so you can swim in the dusk and early morning, or if you simply want to add ambience 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 aboveground and inground pools. Our favorite are these Jellyfish Floating Lights that illuminate vibrant colors on the pool’s surface as well as underwater.
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 do 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.
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.
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 pool 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.
