Your pool is a big investment and you really want the family to make the most of it, right? These days we find that kids of all ages are more often playing on their phones or tablets and not taking advantage of the beautiful pool in the back yard, so we have a few tips on how to get them into the pool and really enjoying the experience.
Pools can be a ‘kid’ magnet when you have the ‘Wow’ factor involved. Have you ever thought about some additions which may entice the entire family to enjoy more hours in the pool and create memories that will last a lifetime?
Here are a few suggestions:
Pool Games: Pool toys come and go, and usually don’t last very so why not have some games that will keep the family coming back for more.
Basketball is probably one of the favourites when it comes to pool games because just about everyone can ‘shoot hoops’. From professionals to beginners there are Basketball games to suit them all.
Volleyball is also a great way go get a little more exercise in the pool and is something that can easily be set up or packed away in minutes. With no limit to the number of plays this fun game will keep everyone entertained for hours.
Diving Boards are always great fun for both Adults and children alike. Creating that huge ‘splash’ or doing the perfect dive into the pool never looses its appeal
Choosing the right diving board for your pool is easy, but always remember ‘safety first’ when it comes to diving and make sure you set the Pool Rules to ensure everyone is safe.
Water Slides are probably the most exciting addition to any pool and are now made just for ‘the littlies’ or for the ‘BIG Kids’. Again always consider safety when it comes to pool water slides and choose a slide that has a deep flume and enclosed steps to ensure no nasty accidents.
Slides come in all shapes and sizes from Portable to Built in and everything in between. There is a slide that fits just about every pool these days.
Make sure you can get safe and easy access into and out of your pool Rails and Ladders are ideal. Unfortunately Rails are not always something people think about when building but luckily they can be added at any time with a deck mounted assembly. Make sure you only choose a rail that will last – your best option would be Marine Grade Stainless Steel and there are many styles and options of finishes to choose from.
For the more discerning pool lover you may like to look at the ultimate option for your entertainment whilst in the pool or lounging in the alfresco area. I’m talking Outdoor TV – why not indulge in luxury and spoil yourself or your family.
In addition to creating crazy good outdoor space you can rejuvenate the power of relaxation, fresh air, and good friends. Now, there are sleek Outdoor TVs, you can relax under the stars with your favourite flick, watch the ashes from your spa or see the game while you BBQ. The choice is yours!
For more poolside indulgence, you may like to consider installing a Gazebo either as a dedicated BBQ area or just to grab a shady spot to relax by the pool.
Styles and choices are unlimited and you can even design your own!
