The long, lazy days of summer are here, and what better way to spend them than in your Tampa Bay swimming pool? Get maximum enjoyment from your pool time this season with these awesome pool accessories.

Pool Noodles

First and foremost, let’s give a shout out to the basic pool noodle! Easy to find just about anywhere, these may be the least expensive but most useful item in your accessory arsenal, so be sure to pick up several. Noodles may be the most versatile of floats. Ladies, try sitting on one to keep the body submerged but hair above water!

Their slim design takes up little space, making them great options to keep in the pool as emergency assists for little swimmers. Host a family jousting tournament! Give each contestant a noodle to straddle and another to use as their “joust”. The first to cause their opponent to fall off their “horse” wins!

A Place for Everything

Banish slimy, sodden pool towels forever! Search Pinterest for do-it-yourself poolside towel rack ideas to keep everyone’s towels corralled and dry. From simple hooks mounted on a wall or fence to an antique ladder, the possibilities are endless. You can also purchase metal towel stands with a weighted base and multi-directional arms for hanging. Some even come equipped with trays or buckets on top for holding sunscreen and other essentials!

Water Sport Equipment

Beat the heat of summer days by taking your favorite sports into the water! Purchase specially designed water footballs, basketballs with weighted poolside hoops, or even water volleyball sets that stretch across the pool from special grommets installed in the decking. For even more fun with your volleyball net, purchase an inexpensive plastic badminton set to play with in the pool. Don’t forget the Sploosh balls! These soft, fabric covered balls make for wonderfully intense games of catch-at-any-cost!

Music Makes it a Party

No pool party can get really rocking without music! Today’s Bluetooth technology has spawned a host of water-resistant outdoor speakers of many shapes, sizes and colors. The best part is they can wirelessly play music from smartphone docks or stereo systems safely kept indoors! So put together a playlist of your favorite party tunes or a relaxation mix for peaceful evening lounging in the spa. Everything is better set to music!
