Because having a really cool pool is the perfect way to keep cool

Pools are a big deal down here in South Florida. And with good reason! With an average year-round temperature of 82 degrees Fahrenheit (much higher than most other states), pools aren’t simply a luxury. Some would say they’re a necessity.

So, since you and all your closest friends are already probably sporting a backyard pool, you might not think twice about the look and feel of yours. Like we said, everyone’s got them! But that’s where you’re wrong. Your pool is the perfect opportunity to make your place really memorable for friends and family. Here’s how to make your cool pool the hot spot everyone, and we mean everyone, will want to enjoy:

1. Slide

Let’s face it: every kid dreams of having a pool with a slide. But if you’re going to splurge on this fun pool accessory, don’t just go with any item you find at the discount store. Why not go big with a spiral tube water slide? You’ll spend countless hours climbing up and sliding down, keeping cool all summer long.

2. Rock waterfalls

There’s just something about the natural-looking touch of a rock waterfall that can really elevate a pool. The natural beauty of the stone meets the soothing water flow beautifully – it’s a great, calming selection for any upper-end pool and really accentuates your back yard!

3. Swim-up bar

If you’ve ever been on an all-inclusive cruise, admit it: your favorite part was the swim-up bar. Serving up both adult beverages and kid-friendly classics, there’s nothing more refreshing than ordering a refreshment straight from the comfort of the pool. Keep prepared drinks and water bottles on-hand in a mini fridge for easy access. It’s even better if you’ve got a hot tub connected to the bar — you’ll be sure to keep hydrated with water that close!

4. Rock climbing wall

Sticking with the rock theme (although getting a lot less natural with this idea), a rock climbing wall is a fun and unique addition to the deep end of your pool. You’ll build upper body strength while staying cool and having fun with your friends. Instead of rappelling down the wall, simply take a plunge into the water.

5. Walking bridge

If you’d like your backyard to have a more subtle look, consider constructing a walking bridge through your garden and over your pool. Decorate the bridge with flowers, vines, and anything else that grows, camouflaging the bridge with the natural beauty of your back yard.

6. Lounge around cut into the center of your pool

If you have a larger pool, install a lounge in the center of the pool by creating a path, raising the walls, and filling in the bottom with cement. Then, add a fire pit and lounge chairs, surrounded by the rest of the pool. Your kids or friends can swim around you while you relax by the fire pit — it’s a win-win situation!

Keep your friends and family safe

We all spend plenty of time out by the pool all summer long. That’s why it’s important to keep those bugs away! And with mosquito-borne illnesses on the rise, now is better a time than ever to install a mosquito misting system in your back yard. You won’t fully enjoy your pool until you keep those mosquitos at bay! Contact us today for a quote or to get started.
