August is in full swing, and we are trying to get more and more summer until we can do it. Here are some pool accessories you may need to make your time at the poolside perfect and relaxing. These things aren’t only for parties, you may use them just to relax at the weekend in your pool. All of these items can be easily DIYed, so read the descriptions and tutorials and enjoy!
A pool heater is necessary especially now when it can be a bit chilly outside but you still want to swim. Here is a pool solar heater. The solar heater works by letting the water in the black pipe heat in the sun for one hour and then pumping that water into the pool. If you have a small pool, this is a great idea, just read the tutorial and go make it.
The second tutorial differs from the first one in its materials and way of crafting. The solar collector is made of plywood and vinyl irrigation hose and coiled it tightly on the plywood, using UV-resistant zip-ties to secure the hose every foot.
Need a cool floating tray to treat right in the pool? Here’s a tutorial! The tray can be plastic, galvanized or coated metal, or even wood but make sure water won’t cause any damage since it may get splashed at times. All you need to do is to attach pool noodles to it and voila!
This tutorial is also dedicated to making a pool tray of a plastic one using one pool noodle. Use E6000 high performance industrial grade glue because the tray will be in water and other glue may not last long. Place your drinks and snacks on it and enjoy!
Another comfy thing to use in the pool is a drink carrier. Of course, a pool noodle is a base for such a craft. The base should be two lengths the size of the can or bottle. Read how to realize this craft in details here.
Another cup or can holder for your pool has a similar tutorial to make. Make some for your guests and serve drinks right in the pool, no need to leave it! It’s a perfect thing for any pool party, both for kids and adults.
A noodle float can hold drinks, snacks and toys and any other stuff you want. To make such a float you’ll need a plastic container of your choice and of course a pool noodle. Such an accessory is an indispensable thing for pool parties.
Have a lot of pool floats? Make a holder to stack them and keep in order. You’ll need a wood round, some rope, glue and hooks. The floats will be held with the help of rope and hooks.
Here’s another cool pool tray! This time no pool noodles are needed, just make it of wood. Wood can easily float itself without any special materials attached. Such a tray can hold glasses, books, even drinks and snacks.
To let your kids have more fun in the pool, you can make some pool octopus pals. You’ll need just large plastic red cups, large googly eyes and waterproof glue.
And one more craft for kids is sponge ball pool game. You’ll need Frisbees and sponges. Place the Frisbees in the pool, have the kids dunk their sponges and take turns trying to toss them into the Frisbees.
