Summer starts off seeming like it will last forever, and yet it slips by very quickly. Many people enjoy vacations and extra leisure activities during the summer — trying to cram in everything fun they can before heading back to school. Your backyard pool enjoyment does not have to end when school resumes. Goodall Pools & Spas has been in the pool business for close to 60 years. We can help you with how to plan the best back-to-school pool party that everyone will love.
Mark “Maintenance” Off Your To-Do List… Permanently
The first thing that a pool party requires is maintenance to ensure that the pool is balanced, beautiful, and beckoning. This is the perfect time to contact our Prestige Pool Maintenance team to get on our regular service list. We will get your pool ready to party… and we will help you keep it that way for swim seasons to come.
Stock Up on Pool Party Supplies
Next, just like there are certain supplies you need to get for back-to-school days, a back-to-school pool party also necessitates some must-have items. Here are some things you will want to have on hand for all of your guests.
- Sunscreen is one thing you definitely don’t want to forget. Children enjoying the pool will forget all about the harmful rays their skin is absorbing.
- Beverages are another item that a party at the pool will require. Hydration is always a must, especially in the heat.
- Snacks are constantly in demand too. Swimming brings out the appetite in everyone.
- Swimming pool accessories are one more thing that will make the pool party a success. Floating devices, pool noodles, water guns, and other pool toys will never lose their appeal.
LED Lights Lend Extra Entertainment
Another thing that swimming pool owners utilize often — especially for an unforgettable party like this one — is LED lights. There are all kinds of lights that can make the pool a little brighter and more entertaining. Underwater lights and multi-colored lights are very popular, particularly for nighttime swimming. When your party stretches past sunset, the lights will add their magical touch.
Add a Hot Tub for the Adults
Finally, where there are children partying, there will also be adults present, right? Maybe now is the perfect time to add a hot tub to your outdoor oasis of fun. A pool and a spa are a classic pair that complement each other. If you need backyard inspiration about where to add a rejuvenating spa, look at these beautiful ideas.
Parents will give your pool party raving reviews if they’re allowed to enjoy some hydrotherapy while the children enjoy the swimming pool. Adding a hot tub also means you will have the perfect place to sit and relax when the party is done — before and after you clean up.
