Fun & Practical Pool Side Accessories

happy swimmer - purchased thru istockLast night, I was talking to my son about having a swimming pool installed in our backyard this summer. He loved the idea, but went on to say “a pool would be cool, but even better would be a swimming pool with a lot of fun stuff so I don’t get bored.”

“Good point” I told him; “swimming pools are great all by themselves, but the fun multiplies when you add a few poolside accessories”.

Pool side accessories are different from pool accessories that can be used in the pool, and range from organizers to decorative accents – around your pool.

Pool side accessories not only enhance the time you spend in your pool, but they can also be useful and practical. In The Swim offers a lot of “fun stuff” that can be enjoyable as well as functional.

Pool Organizers:

These organizers are sturdy, durable, and will enhance your pool surroundings and keep things organized.

 Pool Caddies and Towel Racks:

Keep your beverage and towels at an arm’s length with the handy Above Ground Pool Organizer that features a drink holder, two towel hooks and solar light; and easily attaches to most above-ground top rails.

Pool Float and Noodle Racks:

Float and noodle racks are perfect pool side accessories that let you store your floats and noodles neatly and keeps them from sticking together to prevent the formation of mold and mildew.


Available in lively colors, float and noodle racks will also keep your pool area uncluttered and neatly organized and will make it easy for you to grab the right pool float and noodle. Take a look at The Original Hanging Float Rack, Noodle Rack, or the Pool Caddy to find the one that best suits you or – if you want my two cents, go for all three, and enjoy a well-organized pool.

Pool Clocks and Pool Thermometers :

Your kids will never be able to pull off “sorry I’m late – I lost track of time” if you have a pool clock in place near your pool. Decorative and practical, pool clocks ensure that your family is at the dinner table on time, or that you never miss a manicure appointment.

Kids will love to check the water temperature with our Penguin Thermometer or our Cool Shark Pool pool-thermometersThermometer which look like pool toys but display your pool temperature accurately and instantly so you will never have to swim in chilly water.

Pool Showers and Cabanas:

Pool side showers and cabanas are ideal for parties and gatherings, and allow your guests to change before or after swimming without having to run inside and outside. Not only are pool side showers and cabanas easy to set up, they also allow you to keep your house clean by offering a convenient spot for swimmers to rinse.

Outdoor TV Mounts:

You can save yourself from the difficult task of having to choose between your two favorite things with a TV Deck Planter/Pole, TV Ceiling Mount, or TV Swivel Wall Mount. Bring your television outdoors so you can watch your favorite show while you float in your pool or sip juice on your patio.

Pool Decals:
