Throw the ULTIMATE end of Summer Pool Party | Aqua Fun Inc.

With the first day of school coming up, throw the pool party everyone will talk about. Throw the ultimate end of Summer Pool Party at your house!

Our team at Aqua Fun receives feedback from our clients and others with their reasoning for wanting a new in-ground swimming pool. One of the recurring stories we hear go back to their childhood or family Summer memories at the pool. Most people growing up in America can remember laying out by the pool, swimming in the pool from day to night, perfecting their front flip off the high dive or getting a gorgeous tan while listening to music.

Here are a few tips to throw that end of summer pool party everyone will talk about:

  1. Create a great theme. Here are a few ideas: Hawaiian Luau, Back to School Bash, Star Wars pool party or Football theme. It could be all sports themed simply by adding a volley ball and a volleyball net inside the pool and/or adding a floating basket ball goal with a waterproof basketball. Having a score keeper and referee will bring the intensity up a notch.
  2. Invite people about 2 weeks out. Mail invitations, send an Evite or start a Facebook Event. Let them know there will be food, fun and great memories made. Be sure to incorporate your theme on the invitations.
  3. Plan your meal or snack plan in advance. Here are some quick and easy ideas for a refreshing food spread: fruit salad, cream cheese rolls, fresh sliced vegetables with fresh buttermilk ranch dressing, eskimo pies, watermelon, pasta salad, kabobs, Rice Krispy Treats and Lavender fruit pops. Find perfect recipes on our Pinterest board and plan in advance.
  4. Add fun pool toys. Even if you don’t have a theme, these ideas are fun for every pool party: noodles, beach balls, volleyball net, small squirt guns and super soakers, floaters and of course glowing light balls. Lay out on a big pink flamingo or swan float and dive to the bottom of the pool to get the glow stick. Fun pool toys are a must for any pool party!
  5. Classic Pool Games and other Pool Games can be planned in advance. Make it easy, pick a game from one of these blog posts – classic pool games and/or other pool games, then modify the games and pool toys to match your pool party theme.
  6. Keep extra supplies such as sunblock for adults and children, tanning lotion, chapstick, bug spray, aloe lotion, a first aid kit and water bottles. Buy a few decorative baskets or buckets to hold these items for easy access and aesthetic visibility.
  7. Hire a professional photographer. You can find a good deal on Groupon or use Thumbtack to find a local photographer. Make it a tradition every year, create those memories!
  8. Fire and Water! (Another fun theme idea) – There are many creative ways to incorporate an outdoor fire to the backyard activities, especially at night. Roast marshmallows, make s’mores and tell summer stories around the fire. What a great way to end the pool party with a nice relaxing fire crackling in the night air. Dip your toes in the water after drying off next to the fire. Want to build that backyard fireplace or fire pit? We can help you with that! Just click here to request more information about building an outdoor fire pit or fireplace by your in-ground pool.
  9. Send everyone off with a special gift. If you want to make a lasting impression, send everyone off with a gift of some kind. If it’s for children may be a goody bag with fun little games and candy would be a great place to start. What about a t-shirt with the party theme and year saying something like “We survived the Thompson’s Back-To-School Bash 2017”. How about an adult goodie bag with items such as customized drink coozies, pens, calendars, hats, paper fans, hand-made soaps or lotions.
  10. Start a theme based Song Playlist. 

At Aqua Fun, we love to hear about your great Summer experiences around the pool. We appreciate hearing from you and witnessing all the fun you’re having by posting your Family & Friends Pool Party pictures on our Facebook page.

Tips For Picking Best Inground Pool Size And Shape | Aqua Fun Swimming Pools And Spa’s

Best Inground Pool Size & Shape

Tips from Aqua Fun Swimming Pools & Spa’s

FreeForm Shaped Pool

Free Form Shaped Pool with Flagstone Coping, Spillway, Tanning Ledges and Diving Board

How do you know if you are choosing the right pool for your budget, needs and yard?

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. What is the purpose of getting a pool?
  2. What is your budget?
  3. How much space do you have to build a pool?

Purpose for swimming pool?

Are you adding a pool to your backyard for the purpose of daily exercise? Or are you planning to entertain a large family and/or group of friends? Do you enjoy playing classic pool games with your family?  If the purpose is exercise then a lap pool may work, those tend to be rectangular in size. You can opt for a sports pool which is great size and shape for an afternoon Volleyball game and tend to be shallow on each end and deeper in middle and can extend past a rectangle shape looking more like an “L”.

On the other hand if you are building your new dream inground pool mainly for entertainment purposes you may want a free-form or kidney shaped pool with a spill-over spa and tanning ledges. The choice is yours and together with our experienced designers and builders, you will have the pool of your dreams!

How much pool can you afford?

Depending on your budget, you have choices. The first place to start is looking at the price difference between a vinyl pool, fiberglass pool or gunite pool. With any of the three choices, there are always pool maintenance costs associated with it so you want to equate that into your choices as well. For example, Vinyl Pools do require vinyl pool liner replacements over time, and the fun thing about replacing the vinyl liner is that you can give your pool a make-over.

If you want to make your neighbors jealous, think about going with a gunite pool upgrading  to a  Pebble-Tec finish. Just like with anything, details matter and the details can increase the cost. For example, adding glass pool tiles may cost more than just adding standard pool tiles, but the reward is magical! Imagine these glass tiles glistening in the sun and reflecting off the water.

Get financed for your new pool with our preferred partner.

How is your Backyard Space?

Do you have a small space with a sloping backyard? If you do then that will affect the layout of your pool. There are creative ways to maximize even the smallest yard. If your backyard is a wide open space you have more choices in size and shape and our team at Aqua Fun work with preferred quality construction builder partners who can work in conjunction with us to make any backyard more functional and as beautiful as you want. With larger backyards you can add backyard kitchens and fireplaces to compliment the pool decking and theme.

Here are some different pool shape and size choices to consider:

Geometric Shapes – circles, ovals, rectangles, square
Free form, Kidney, Figure 8, Lazy L, Greek & Roman shaped pools

Exercise – lap pool, sport pool
