If You Have A Swimming Pool Consider These Pool Accessories

Aug 17, 2007
Many people think that swimming recreationally is just for kids. How wrong they are. Why should adults be stuck with the simple option of swimming as exercise instead of splashing around like the kids? A number of swim accessories aimed specifically at adults will help you and your friends have a great time at your next pool party. Consider these options.

Many adults swim simply to relax. Nothing says retreat like a cool swimming pool after a hard day at the office. If you are in search of that moment of relaxation once you've parked your loafers in the closet, consider the benefits of a floating raft, a floating chair, or a floating lounge chair while enjoying your pool. Not only will you be in the pool, enjoying the refreshing water, but you'll be floating above the water, soaking in the final day's rays.

Similar to traditional chairs, floating chairs keep your upper body above the water while immersing your lower body underwater. The weary worker can sit back and relax while enjoying the gently lapping water at the same time. Many chairs even come with drink holders, creating a literal oasis in the middle of the pool. You don't even have to move to get a drink.

Similar to traditional floating chairs, floating long chairs tend to keep the entire body above water. Thus they resemble patio chairs in a lounge position. Those looking to sunbathe or just relax on the water's surface will enjoy these toys. Unfortunately, few come with the coveted drink holder mentioned before.

Many adults enjoy floating rafts as well. These toys have the potential to provide both relaxation and excitement. Despite the fact that they come in a variety of styles, the majority of floating rafts liken themselves to rafts used in water parks. Most can hold more than one person or have handles on the sides for fun activities in the water.

In addition to rafts, kickboards, volleyball nets, and basketball hoops also offer the desired recreation in the water. Kickboards work best for swimmers by themselves, while volleyball nets and basketball hoops offer fun for a group of swimmers. Such accessories have the potential to bring a pool party to life.

Other accessories can liven a pool party. Consider a pool bar. These miniature bars come in two variations: either set up alongside the pool or set up directly in the pool. Swimmers enjoy this accessory whether they're swimming alone or enjoying a group swim party. Swimmers never have to leave the water to enjoy the refreshments at the bar.

So stop thinking that games in the water are just for the kids. Look beyond the water noodles and water wings the next time you shop for some fun pool accessories, and consider what fun adults can have in the pool too.
