For pool owners across Australia, the warmer weather means that your pool is starting to get more of a workout but it will really hit its peak now that the festive season is nearly upon us. In the lead up to Christmas and New Year, and the entertaining that comes with it, there’s no better time to invest in some pool accessories to add something extra for visitors. Today, we’ll be sharing some of our favorite accessories that fit right in during the festive season.
Yes, we’re starting out with a practical accessory but a pool umbrella can make a big difference to the enjoyment of people in the water. In the notoriously hot Australian Christmas, the sun can get a bit much even when you’re in the water and you need to provide shelter for those around the pool. If you’re not in the market for a permanent shade sail, there are plenty of umbrellas on the market in varying sizes which do a fantastic job of keeping the sun at bay. Position it over one end of the pool in the heat of the day for protected swimming – perfect for the kids!
If you’ve been thinking of investing in a pool cover, the lead up to the festive season is a perfect time. With the combination of hot weather and heavy use, it sometimes feels like you’re constantly topping up your pool with water. A pool cover significantly reduces evaporation so you have a more manageable water bill. They also stop leaves and debris from getting into the pool for easier maintenance.
Entertaining during the festive season often means that you’ll spend a lot of time outside with friends and family in the evenings while you enjoy the beautiful weather. To make a real feature of your pool, there are plenty of lights available that will help transform your backyard. From underwater varieties that bathe the water in light to floating lights in a variety of colors, the choice is yours!
To inject some extra fun into poolside entertaining, a couple of pool games are a great idea and there are plenty of options on offer. Challenge the family to a game of pool volleyball on Christmas Day or set up an inflatable basketball hoop for the kids. These also make a great stocking filler for the kids to enjoy later in the day.
