Make pool day a bit more fun, practical, and unique

South Florida boasts great pool weather pretty much year-round, so it’s nearly always a good time to get the pool accessories you didn’t know you need. Want to make your pool a uniquely fun place for you, your friends, and your family to beat the heat? Here are some of our favorite accessories:

1. Crazy floats

One of the biggest pool accessory trends of this year are cool, odd floats, and we don’t see any sign of the fad slowing down. You can find comfort in floating around on a giant pizza slice or feel extra cool on an Instagram-worthy, glamorous, giant swan — whatever you decide, you’ll be in-style. Make sunbathing and pool parties more enjoyable (and picture-worthy) than ever before.

2. Sunscreen dispenser

Speaking of sunbathing, you’ll definitely want a piece of the action when it comes to this handy, practical accessory. How many times do you or the kids go out back before realizing someone forgot the all-important sunscreen? Sun protection is essential to prevent painful sunburns, dangerous sun poisoning, and to lower the chance of developing skin cancers, including melanoma.

But lots of folks forget the precaution until they’re by the pool — and once they’re under those rays, they’re too careless to go back inside and apply (or reapply) sunscreen. We know we’re guilty at times. That’s where a built-in dispenser at the pool comes in handy, ensuring you’re always stocked up on protective lotion from the get-go.

3. Floating cooler

Everyone gets thirsty when swimming on a warm day. But once you’re in the pool, it can be a hassle to get out for a drink, even when the sun is hot, strong, and thoroughly dehydrating. So keep icy cold drinks in a nearby cooler — right in the center of the pool — for a healthier, more refreshing day.

4. Inflatable drink holders

Another cool yet practical pool accessory is the inflatable drink holder. Like the floating cooler, these floats are a great way to make sure you and the crew are hydrated. Cute and stylish floats not only give you a place to keep your drink, they also make a great conversation piece. Whether you’ve got giant doughnuts, mini flamingos, or anything else serving as your tray, you’ll always have something to chat about.

5. Waterproof sound system

Nothing beats a good pool day except a good pool day with great tunes. Perfect for parties, romantic evenings, or just a hot summer’s day, a waterproof outdoor sound system will help set the tone for any gathering.

No matter how you choose to spend your day by the pool, make sure you’re protected.

And we’re not just talking sunscreen! When you’re outdoors, it’s critical to protect yourself and your family from the annoying and potentially-dangerous mosquitos that are prone to hatching in wet areas. Any standing water in and around your property can be a breeding ground for mosquitos, and these pests get especially active if the party stretches on into the late afternoon or early evening. Our automatic backyard misting systems are a great way to help keep your family safe. Contact us today to find out how Platinum can protect your backyard.
