Pool Essentials You Need This Summer

When preparing for a relaxing day by the pool, it’s important to have a few necessary items to ensure your comfort and enjoyment. Whether you’re hauling your family to the neighborhood public pool for the day or plan on hanging out in the backyard by your own private pool, here are some pool essentials you might want to consider.

Oversized Cabana Towel

After swimming, the first thing you reach for is a towel to dry off your body. These quick-drying pool towels are both soft and absorbent, made from 100% ring spun cotton. Generously sized at 30 x 70 inches, the large towel provides ample coverage to swaddle yourself in and still comfortably sit or lie down. You can also use this to cover chairs and chaises. Coming in a variety of colors, pick the style that best suits you and your pool crew!

Inflatable Floats

Experience ultimate relaxation in the water with this extra-large pool float lounger! The lounger is made with incredible comfort thanks to a cushioned, ergonomic backrest along with a headrest and footrest. A soft fabric mesh covers the water lounge chair and creates a supportive, cooling seat on the water. No need to hop out the water to grab a beer— there’s an over-sized, folding side caddy beverage holder in case you get thirsty out there. It also has exceptional portability with two carry handles built into the side.

Waterproof Speaker

A day at the pool isn’t complete without some tunes! Enjoy your summer playlist while swimming or lounging on the deck with your favorite podcast. The MusiBaby wireless Bluetooth speaker is resistant to splashes (and while you should not submerge the speaker directly into the water) it is safe enough to have nearby. Standing at just under 5 inches tall, this portable speaker is powerful enough to deliver immersive sound with rich bass, mids and highs, and dynamic sound at up to 1500 minutes of playing time.

Inflatable Beach Balls

Remember to bring something fun! Inflatable beach balls don’t only have to be used at the beach— their lightweight buoyancy makes them ideal for playing games in the pool or for simply tossing around. You get three large sized 20-inch balls, which are made of PVC and hold air for a long time. The kids will have a great time bouncing them around, and they are very easy to inflate. It’s best to use a hand pump, or you can blow it up by mouth.

Insulated Cooler Bag

A reliable cooler is a valuable item to have for your pool trip for three simple reasons: keeping beverages cold, food storage, and convenience. These insulated grocery bags will keep your stuff cold for up to an hour and a half, giving you plenty of time to go for a dip then come back and have a snack. The extra-large size holds up to 25 pounds worth of contents.
