Whether you're relaxing at the Achtformpools pool or entertaining guests, there are must have pool accessories that will make your time at the water more fun and exciting.
Aside from being fun and convenient, they also help you keep your swimming pool safe for everyone. Before you invest in any pool accessories, be sure to choose ones that adhere to ASTM safety standards.
1. Floating Speakers
Whether you’re a pool-going adult looking to add some music to your workouts or a kid who wants to listen to their favorite songs while in the water, floating speakers are an essential accessory to have. They come in all shapes and sizes, but all of them are fun to use and look cool as well!
First and foremost, these speakers need to be waterproof. The best ones will have an IPX7 rating, which means they can be submerged for up to an hour before they start showing signs of damage. Other models will have less intense ratings and may be splash-proof only, so make sure to check the product’s specifications before making a purchase.
Another important consideration is battery life. A good speaker will last for a long time if it is well-charged. A bad battery can cause your music to stop suddenly and make your swimming pool experience unpleasant.
Finally, it is a good idea to choose a model that has a control panel. This will allow you to change the volume, play/pause the music and more without having to open your smartphone or Bluetooth device.
We also recommend choosing a model that has LED lights incorporated, which will sync to the music and create a nice atmosphere by your pool. Some of these speakers also include caller ID, which will enable you to answer calls hands-free while listening to your favorite songs!
2. Floating Toys
Floating toys are a must have for summer, whether you’re hosting a pool party or relaxing by the pool. These inflatable floats are ideal for lounging and soaking up the sun, and some even come with cup holders and canopies for added comfort.
These floats are also great for entertaining children, who will love playing games in the water with these toys. They can push the float back and forth underwater, bounce it off the walls or dribble it on the pool floor.
For adults, floats are also great for lounging and soaking up the sunshine. Some are designed with adjustable backrests and pillows, while others have unique designs or shapes.
When shopping for a floating toy, look for a model that’s made from a durable material that resists punctures and tears. It should also have a three-way valve that makes it easy to inflate or deflate quickly by mouth or pump.
You can also find inflatable floats that are shaped like animals or other objects, which is great for kids and adults who want to have fun together in the water. A watermelon float, for example, can be filled with water and pushed or dribbled around the pool to make it more exciting.
You can also find a variety of other floats, including a football float and an inflatable basketball hoop that makes shooting baskets in the pool more exciting. If you’re looking for something a little bit more challenging, try these swim-through rings that can turn your pool into an obstacle course underwater.
3. Floating Lights
If you’re looking to add some extra bling and glam to your pool, floating lights are a must have accessory. Not only can these lights help you to spruce up your pool’s look, but they also provide a safe and secure lighting option for swimming at night.
The best floating pool lights are lightweight, easy to set up, and offer a wide variety of features. These include color changing modes, brightness levels, and remote control options.
These lights can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you’re sure to find one that fits your needs. Some are even waterproof and can be used in a hot tub or other body of water.
Another great feature of these lights is that they’re powered by solar energy. This means they can charge up during the day and then light up at night.
Using them at home, in the backyard, or at a pool party will give you and your guests a spectacular lighting display. They also have a great battery life, which means you don’t have to worry about replacing them anytime soon.
The best floating pool lights are available in a wide range of colors and patterns. This allows you to create a unique atmosphere for any event. They can also be programmed to flash, fade, or glow in a variety of patterns.
4. Floating Drink Holders
Floating drink holders are one of the most must have pool accessories because they keep your beverages within reach without a lot of hassle. They’re also a great way to add some style and personality to your summer pool experience.
They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you’re sure to find a design that suits your needs. And, like any other pool accessory, they’re durable enough to withstand the harshness of the water.
While you may not want to spend a lot of money on a drink holder, it’s worth considering the quality and durability of a product. Some are made of a more durable material, while others may be puncture resistant.
Some floaters are designed to hold multiple cups or bottles, while others have dedicated holders for small snacks. They’re perfect for parties or other social gatherings where you need to keep a steady stream of drinks flowing.
These floats come in an assortment of fun designs that will make you smile as you sip on your favorite beverage. They also fit a wide range of drink cups, including those from brands like Tervis, Rtic, and YETI.
They’re also extra-buoyant, so they won’t tip over easily. However, they do require you to inflate them by pump or mouth (which is easier on the lungs). So, keep that in mind before making a final decision.
5. Floating Footbath
A floating footbath is a must have pool accessory for anyone who spends time in the water. It offers a unique and refreshing experience that's sure to leave your feet feeling brand new. The latest offerings are also a lot easier on the wallet and provide all of the convenience of an in-home spa without the added hassle of having to use the bathroom.
The most exciting feature of this type of foot bath is the ability to heat up the water to an impressive temperature and then maintain it for a long period of time. Many models come with buttons to adjust the heat, timers, and a bubbling mechanism, and some even offer massaging rollers.
Floating footbaths are also popular for other reasons, including the fact that they allow you to enjoy a relaxing soak without being tied down to the tub or having to deal with the mess of having to fill and drain a regular-sized tub. The best ones are also lightweight and portable, so you can take them with you on a beach vacation.
If you're looking for a footbath with some bling and are willing to put in a little extra effort, a floater is just the thing for you. It's a good idea to try to find one that's as fun as it is functional, and will help you get the most out of your time in the sun.
6. Floating Toys
Floating toys are one of the best ways to make swimming more fun. They're also a great way to introduce babies and toddlers to the water.
To help your little ones enjoy the pool even more, look for inflatable floats that are safe and easy to use. For example, this floatable sun canopy by LAYCOL is a fun way to teach your little one how to swim safely and comfortably.
Another popular float is the giant flamingo float. It has room for two adults and is made from UV-treated raft grade vinyl. It can be inflated by hand or with a pump and has a mini flamingo float to hold your drink as you relax in the pool.
The watermelon ring is another great choice for families with young children. When the ring is filled with water, it sinks to the bottom of the pool and bounces up again. Kids can push it back and forth underwater, dribble it on the pool's floor or bounce it off the walls.
If a game of basketball or volleyball is more your style, this oversized hoop makes it a fun way to challenge friends and family to a pool time game. Plus, it has a removable pole base for extra anchor weights.
A goofy float that's perfect for any backyard party, this floating cooler is sure to be a hit with the entire family. The alligator design can scare off frogs and other small animals that might otherwise invade your pool, while the built-in cup holders will let you keep drinks close by.
