Summertime Fun In The Pool

Summertime fun is here! The temperature is heating up and students are finally free from school. It is the perfect time to relax and enjoy the company around the pool. There are plenty of traditional and unique ways to have fun this summer. So, let’s talk about some ways you can spend your summertime fun!

Summertime Fun Pool Party

One of the best ways to enjoy the summer is to have a pool party. Pool parties are the best ways to gather friends and family to enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool. People can lounge around the pool, enjoying assortments of food and drinks. Furthermore, it is the perfect time to pull out the pool toys! Pool floats and loungers provide a way to relax in the water. Meanwhile, pool toys like floating basketball hoops provide fun for adults and children. However, you don’t have to through a lavish party to enjoy the summer. You can also wind down by having private time on your patio.

Hanging Out on the Patio

While summer provides some hot temperatures, there are ways to escape the heat without getting in the water. Nothing is more calming is sitting under a patio umbrella with an ice-cold drink and a nice book. Many people invest in patio furniture to increase their living space. The summer allows people to have a change of scene. Instead of staying inside, you can have a fun and relaxing time under the blue, sunny sky.

Nighttime Hot Tub Soak

Who says summertime fun is restricted to just daytime? Once the sun sets, the temperature cools down. However, it doesn’t mean that you have to stop having fun. While people can take a nighttime swim in a well-lit pool, a soak in the hot tub can be just what the doctor ordered. In addition to hot tubs having amazing health benefits, it is a nice way to relax after a long day. You can soak in your hot tub and enjoy the nighttime sky. Keep on the lookout for the summer constellations! Many unique star alignments can only be seen during these summer months.

What are the best games to play in a pool?

Seahorse Races

All you need for this game is kids and noodles. Each player gets a noodle to place between their legs and ride like a seahorse. On the count of three, the players race to the other side and the first one to reach the other side wins!

Cannonball Contest

The cannonball contest is very fun! When it is your turn, tuck your legs up to your chest and try to make the biggest splash! Whomever makes the biggest splash wins!

Marco Polo

This pool game is a classic. “Marco” keeps their eyes closed and calls out to the other players for hints. “Polo” answers the calls and tries to avoid “Marco”. But don’t forget, if you think that “Polo” is out of the water, open your eyes and call them out by yelling “FISH OUT OF WATER”! If you catch them, they become “Marco” and the game continues!


Iceberg is essentially freeze tag for the pool. When the person who is it tags you, you have to freeze and spread your arms and legs. You can be “unfrozen” when another player swims through your legs.

Swimming Pool Safety Tips

Swimming Pool Safety Tips

When you purchase your new swimming pool from Sunny’s Pools & More, there are some swimming pool safety tips you should consider for your whole family. Enjoying your new pool with the family is a great way to spend your summer days. To keep everyone safe, here is a list of tips that help you enjoy your pool safely.

Swimming Pool Safety Tips Fencing

No matter if you have an above-ground or semi-inground pool, you should always consider a fence. You cannot monitor your pool 24/7, with a protective locked fence, you can keep kids out when not supervised. In addition, some cities require a fence at a certain height as well. For above ground make sure to have a lockable ladder or steps as well. Also, you may consider an alarm system for added protection.

First Aid and Chemical Safety

Having a first aid near the pool area is always a good idea. For deeper pools, a life ring or a life hook should be close by as well. A life hook can be used to pull someone to safety quickly and is always recommended. Make sure to inspect your first aid kit, life ring, and life hook each season to assure they are in proper condition. Pool chemicals are a necessity to keep your pool water clean and safe.

When it comes to chemicals make sure to store them properly. Younger kids may get into the chemicals harming themselves. Also, make sure to wear protective wear when handling chemicals. Finally, store your chemicals in a well ventilated and secure area out of reach of small children (pets too!).

Drain Covers, CPR and Rules

One thing people do not think of are drain covers. Small young children have been hurt from the suction of drains so make sure to properly cover the drain or filter. Owners of private swimming pools should have at least one person who knows CPR.  Hopefully, you will not have to use it, but having someone who knows it is always a good idea. Setting some base rules for everyone is another great safety step. Rules such as no running on a wet deck, or no swimming without an adult. Setting rules will help keep everyone safe.

These are just a few tips of having a safe pool this summer. Of course, if you are looking for a new pool, visit your local Sunny’s Pools & More for everything you need to build the pool of your dreams!
