Aqua Fun Offers Tips About Debris In Your Swimming Pool
We have your Checklist for Pool Bag Essentials
Here’s a checklist of what to bring whether you own a pool, you’re invited to a pool party, spend the afternoon at the neighborhood pool or go to the beach or lake on a hot Summer day! We want to be your one-stop shop for all things swimming related!
1) Find a large beach bag to fill up all Summer essentials
It doesn’t have to be a designer bag, it will get wet! You want to use a bag large enough to put everything you need. If you have kids your bag will need to be large enough to carry twice as much.
2) Don’t skip the sunscreen!
Don’t be that person who forgets their sunscreen. Protect yourself from sunburn! Pack enough in case somebody else forgets theirs. You should have a couple of options for sunscreen: spray or lotion with different amounts of SPF for a child or adult. Children should have a minimum of 30 SPF applied at least every hour and a half. There are SPF sunscreens for the face and lips and you can get waterproof sunscreen if you will be swimming a lot.
3) Towels, towels, towels.
Personally I like to have two, one to lay on and one to dry off with. It’s always good to have towels on hand, you never know when you may need them! This is a chance to show off your swimming pool style.
4) Healthy filling snacks
Swimming all day will make anyone hungry. You will definitely want to bring filling healthy snacks that are easy to hand out and grab on the go. Granola bars, string cheese, apple slices, baby carrots and ranch are some healthy choices that are easy to pack and the kids will approve! Check out our Pinterest page with many healthy snack ideas.
TIP: to keep things cool, freeze juice boxes or water bottles to create a DIY ice pack and a drink for later in the hot sun!
5) You can’t forget the pool toys!
Floaties, goggles, pool noodles, beach balls, frisbees are great examples of pool toys that will keep the kids entertained all day. Much of the toys out there now can be deflated for easy carrying. If you run out of pool toys you can always resort to good old fashioned swimming pool games. Check out the blog post for more swimming pool games.
6) Last but certainly not least, extra clothes!
Bring a fresh shirt for everyone in case you all decide to leave for a quick bite or you all want to play outside of the pool and don’t want a cold wet bathing suit to make you sick. I would throw in a couple of hats, baseball hats, floppy beach hats for the ladies or safari hats work as well. Sunglasses, swim suit cover, summer blanket.
I hope a few of these tips helped you, and will allow for a fun time at a pool this summer! Remember us for all your swimming pool needs! Have a great Summer!

Spring Is Around Corner, Time To Open Pool & Tips For Happy Pool Chemistry
The one thing people may forget to think about when getting a pool, is the chemistry of the pool. Our team at Aqua Fun is always here to help you maintain your pools chemistry, but we also want to help you Open Your Pool This Spring with the correct chemical balancing. In case you are into DYI Pool Opening, we’d like to offer a basic template for successfully Opening Your Swimming Pool. Not saying you have to be a Chemist but here are the basic chemicals that go in a pool and what the levels should be.
Free Chlorine – 2.0 to 4.0 ppm
pH – 7.2 to 7.6
Calcium Hardness – 200 to 400 ppm
Cyanuric Acid – 30 to 50 ppm
Total Alkalinity – 80 to 120 ppm
Above are the best ranges of chemicals for the perfect pool! There are some instances where you may need or want to go out of those levels. You want to make sure your pool is balanced for the perfect swimming environment. Maintaining the quality of your pool is very crucial for functionality and comfort. These extra steps to check your pool environment is worth it for a healthy stable balance to keep out bad bacteria and fight against algae. Remember, pH is always unstable and pH is thrown off anything that enters the water, but it is the most important to maintain, so there is a formula you’ll want to follow.
Alkalinity works with pH to fight to keep a stable balance in the pool. The Calcium Hardness is mostly just to keep the pool safe from the outside in, keeping all the plaster intact for longevity of the pool.
Whether you have a chlorine or salt water gunite pool, fiberglass pool or vinyl pool, you’ll want to make sure when you open your pool this season the chemicals are balanced and ready for the first swim of the season. It is our speciality to Open Your Pool so please don’t hesitate to reach out and schedule your pool opening today! Schedule your Aqua Fun Pool Pool Opening Consultation here.

Aqua Fun Shares Top 5 Pool Trends for 2018
The forecast is good for a bustling economy this year and our team at Aqua Fun is already feeling the benefits. Many home owners have been reaching out about building an inground swimming pool in their backyard oasis. Our designer keeps hearing the same type of question from our new customers, “How can I make our new pool stand out?”. We’ve decided to offer a few pool trends we see coming in 2018, some are new trends and some are past trends that have carried over from recent previous years.
#1 – Pops of Color
When an interior designer transforms a house, they use pops of color to change the feeling, and tone of the space. Like you would use pops of color in home decor to set the mood, you would do the same for the interior of your pool. Darker colors are trending in 2018, it gives an illusion to a deeper, darker pool which exudes a relaxing spa vibe.
#2 – Unique Tiles
Whether you choose a darker vibe or a light clean interior, you want to make your pool unique to you yet stand out from any other pool. Choose an accent tile that is funky, or something out of the ordinary that could be an expression of your style or a conversation piece.
#3 – Depth
Now this is something that everyone needs to think about when designing a pool. Are you looking for something more for exercise and diving? Or are you interested in something for lounging and playing games? It’s something to think about. It’s difficult to play volleyball in the pool that has a different depth making it a perfect even playing field for many water games. So keep that in mind when you are thinking about how you get the best use out of your pool! Peoples tastes and ideas change, and this year we anticipate the depth of a pool being more of a factor.
#4 – Saltwater
To use saltwater or not to use salt water. That is the question. This is not the newest of trends with pools, but people are asking for saltwater pools more frequently. One factor to consider is how you will maintain your new saltwater pool, Aqua Fun is happy to help you maintain your saltwater pool or empower you to maintain your own saltwater pool. This trend looks like it’s not going anywhere as we move into a more organic less chemical state of mind.
#5 – Decor
Last but not least, going back to the first trend which is pops of colors. As an interior designer would decorate the inside of your house, you should also be reminded of the difference it can make on the exterior. Pops of color and tile aren’t the only things that can make your space unique but lighting, furniture, shrubbery, outdoor kitchen, rug or pillows can completely change the ambiance and feel of your perfect customized space. Be sure to check out our Pinterest board with photos of trendy outdoor pool furniture, lighting, art and landscaping ideas.
