Checklist | Swimming Pool Bag Essentials | Aqua Fun Pools

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!

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.

More Pool Games For Summer Swimming | Aqua Fun Inground Pools

Swimming Pool Games Are Summer’s Most Fun

We wrote a blog post called Classic Pool Games and had great feedback. Our team at Aqua Fun Pools decided to offer you a few more pool game ideas with a focus this time on Modern Pool Games.

Water Hoops

Love basketball or volleyball? If so, then you will love water hoops. There is an entire cottage industry built just for pool games. Water Hoops is at the top of the most popular Modern Pool Game list. Check out the different types of water hoops for sale on Amazon – inflatable basketball hoops, side mounted basketball goal, volleyball hoops and  floating basketball goals. This is a great way to bring family and friends together in a competitive manner.

Another Water Hoop Game smaller children love to play is swimming underwater, through a hula-hoop.

Watermelon Relay

Watermelon, as we all know, is a Summer fresh fruit staple and is also known for it’s All-American, Summertime image. Fun thing is, whole watermelons can easily become a thrilling pool game. You have to be in decent shape because technically you won’t be ale to touch the bottom. Players must push a watermelon from one end of the pool to the other with other touching the bottom of the pool with their feet. The challenge comes with a greased down melon.

Fish

Have you ever played games with the basketball such as P-I-G or H-O-R-S-E? Well think of Fish as the swimming pool version of P-I-G or H-O-R-S-E. It’s a repetitive game where player #1 performs a task that must be repeated. If any of the players are unable to do the task then they get the first letter in the word F-I-S-H. Be careful, whoever gets all four letters looses. Also, rules should be set to determine fairness.

Octopus

In the pool game called Octopus, someone is “IT”. It’s similar to Sharks & Minnows but in this game, the solo-Octopus or “IT” stands in the middle of the pool while players line up one one side of the pool and attempt to get to the other side without being tagged. Whoever gets tagged has to hold hands with “IT” and they tag the players together. With each round, the Octopus arms extend further and all players must be tagged. Then a new round can start and a new “IT” can be picked.

Do you have any modern pool games y0u’d like to add to this blogpost? We’ love to hear from you, and if you have photos of your family or friends playing any of these pool games post it on our Aqua Fun 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

End of Summer Pool Party Tips from Aqua Fun Pools

Summer Pool Party Tips

It’s that time of the year again, the school bell is ringing all over North Georgia. This can be an exciting time but also a stressful time. Just because school is back in session does not mean the summer is over. What better reason is there to celebrate the new school year, blow off some steam and invite your friends and family over for an end of the summer pool party than this?

The kids will love swimming in the pool playing classic pool games like Sharks & Minnows, but they will also enjoy playing a simple game of Simon Says on the pool deck.

Get those Super Soakers out after the planned activity, the kids will never get bored. Look out because you might just get wet.

You know the party has started when dad does a belly flop. Have your camera’s ready, these are epic moments the kids will never forget. If belly flops are not your cup of tea then a good old fashioned cannonball will work just fine. These days of summer are priceless and memories can last forever so be sure to snap pictures.

Beach balls and hula hoop’s can be a lot of fun. There are several games one could play with either toy, but the game you see below is a great way to combine the two. Do you like basketball? If you do then you will really enjoy this game.

An end of summer pool party would not be complete without a great array of food and drink. You will find some great poolside treats on our Pinterest board. More reason to see why there is no need to squeeze in the last minute trip to Florida to create family memories. With your new Aqua Fun Swimming Pool & Spa you can have a Staycation right in your own back yard. We give you several great ideas for your vacation at home in this blog post.

  • Sharks and Minnows

In its most basic of form, sharks & minnows is merely a game of water tag. The game begins with one shark and several minnows. The shark lurks in one end (or the middle) of the pool. The minnows stand at the other end. When the shark hollers “Minnows in!” or a similar phrase, the minnows jump or dive into the pool and try to swim to the other side without getting tagged by the shark. Every minnow the shark tags joins the shark’s team and helps to tag other minnows. The last minnow becomes the first shark in the next round.

There are different rules depending when a minnow can be tagged.  Version one, a minnow can’t be tagged if he/she is fully submerged under water. In that case, the shark can either wait for the minnow to surface for a breath, or the shark can try to pull him/her to the surface to earn the tag.

In another version of the game, slyness is critical. The game begins with the shark facing away from the pool. The shark can only turn around when he /she hears a minnow in the water. Minnows who enter the water without noise and swims without splashing are compensated with a head start toward the other side.

Safe zones are also favored. If a minnow touches the safe zone (for example, the diving board or pool drain), the shark can’t tag it.

  • Marco Polo

This is the king of classic pool games. Way before school children learned about the 13th century Italian explorer Marco Polo, they became authorities in this aquatic adaptation of Blind Man’s Bluff.

To play Marco Polo, you need minimum of two people, but it’s ultimate with a small crowd. One person becomes “Marco.” That person, Marco,  must close his / her eyes and attempt to tag the rest of the people in the swimming pool. To locate the other players, he / she uses a primitive form of sonar, yelling out “Marco!” to which everyone else must respond, “Polo!” Using the direction of the voices as a guide, the blind Marco lunges after his Polos. The first person to be tagged is the new Marco.

The rules for Marco Polo are fairly simple, yet enforcing them can be tricky. The Marco might try to sneak a peek, or the Polos might not yell “Polo.” To combat this trickery, some players allow the Marco to yell, “Fish out of water!” when he suspects someone of leaving the pool [source: Retroland]. If he’s right, the “fish” becomes the new Marco. ( **cited source below)

  • Diving For Treasure

Best for goggle wearers. Here are the rules, choose a small, non-floating object and toss it into the pool. Have the kids race to find the object and pick it up first.

When we were kids, we used pennies and rocks as the treasure, but now they sell special dive rings and dive sticks just for the game! ( **cited source below)

 

  • Cannon Ball Contest

This is a lot of fun especially when you want to make a big splash! You can do this off the side of the pool or from a diving board. Good form is when you can get a safe jog to the edge of the diving board or pool, jump high and outward, pull knees to chest and gather yourself in a round ball to hit the water with a thud leaving a giant wave in your wake. The bigger you are, the larger the splash generally speaking. If you manage to get everyone wet around you then it was a good one!

  • Belly Flop Contest

The classic belly flop can hurt so this one is more fun to watch. We think it’s self explanatory!

  • Water Ballet

The last two classic water games are generally more for the girls, not to say boys don’t enjoy them as well, but water ballet consists of whirling, twirling and pointing of the toes. It’s easy to be graceful in the water.

  • Underwater Tea Party

Tea Party’s can provide hours of fun for little girls. Best left to goggle wearing kids who are not afraid to hold their breath as long as possible. Just use your imagination and pour the tea!
