Get Your Pool Ready For Summer Parties

by Kaylee Craig

If you have a pool, then you know how fun pool parties can be. If you're planning on having any big parties this summer, then you should make sure you have all of the supplies ready. You can throw a party with a bare bones pool, but it's always better to have extra supplies that will make the party more fun.

Here are some things you can get that will make a pool party more fun.

Retractable Solar Pool Cover

This one doesn't sound like much fun, but a retractable pool cover will eliminate a lot of work for you. You don't want to spend the morning of a party skimming the surface of your pool. A pool cover will prevent insects, bugs, and leaves from getting into the pool.

You should always choose a retractable cover because it is easy to remove. You should ideally have a contractor install a motor operated cover. These don't require you to hand crank the cover. All you have to do is flip a switch and the cover will retract and wind up.

A solar cover is great if you plan on having a nighttime pool party. The solar cover will help keep the pool warm until you are ready to open it up for your guests.

Pool Lights

Your party might end up lasting into the night. If that's the case, then you should have pool lights. Now, if you don't have pool lights already installed, you should get floating pool lights. These lights are waterproof and also decorative. They come in different shapes, a popular one being a globe. You can even get colored lights such as purple, red, and neon green.

Floating Drink Cooler

Another great idea for a pool party is a floating drink cooler. This way people don't have to get in and out of the pool to get their drinks. These come in many designs, from the simple open style that is filled with ice, to a big closed container that also has a radio with speakers attached to it.

Floating Games

A party is no fun without games. There are lots of floating games you can get. There is the popular volleyball net or basketball hoop. However, you might want to consider some unique floating games such as a floating ping pong table, or even a floating beer pong table. The beer pong tables designed for pools have secure holders for the cups so that they don't spill over and get beer in your pool.

With any of these fun additions to your pool, you will be well-equipped to throw an incredible pool party. Go to places like KrisCo Aquatech Pools & Spas for swimming pool supplies.


About Me

About Marcus Thompson

My name is Marcus Thompson and about 8 years ago I found myself raising 3 children on my own. Before becoming a single father, I was too busy in my corporate world to even realize my home was falling apart. However, as I began spending more time at home, I began to notice all of the issues that were quickly causing my home's value to decrease. I couldn't afford to hire a contractor to fix these issues, so little by little, I began learning how to fix these problems myself. Over the years, I became a dedicated DIY enthusiast who is capable of fixing any issue I may encounter in my home. Creating this website is my way of sharing everything I have learned over the years with other parents and homeowners so that they too can begin taking control of any issues they may experience with their home.
