You did it. You have your own backyard pool in Scottsdale, Arizona. And with the hot Phoenix summers, along with celebrations like birthdays, summer holidays, neighborhood BBQ’s, or just relaxing with a few friends, there are many reasons to put your pool to good use. 

Private Pool Time

After a long day at work, unwind and de-stress in your very own pool. Forget about all the responsibilities on your shoulders and swim them off. Float around sipping a glass of wine. Play with the kids in the water. Make memories while you de-stress during private pool time with just you or you and the family. Using your pool to relax rather than going to the spa and spending hundreds of dollars on massages, facials, and any other way to relax, you can simply come home, your most favorite place, and plunge into your pool. It’s the perfect way to escape and forget about life for a while. 

Pool Party!!!

Who doesn’t love a pool party? Especially the neighbors, both kids and adults. Share your pool with friends and family a few times during summer by throwing pool parties. Consider throwing them for graduation parties, Independence Day, Memorial Day, and Labor Day. Make your backyard into an entertainment oasis featuring lighting, music, food, pool games and toys, and anything else you can think of. You could even set a theme, such as a Hawaiian Luau, a pot luck, or wherever your imagination takes you. Have the kids help you out with some ideas. 

Speaking of Pool Games

To keep the kids active and entertained all summer, encourage them to use the pool by teaching them pool games and giving them pool toys. Kids love to swim, but when you add some imagination to it, it’s even more fun. Marco Polo, Cannonball contests, and Sharks and Minnows are all fun games to play in the pool. Also have pool toys on hand like noodles, floats, water guns, inflatable balls, and inflatable toys shaped like different animals. 

Enjoy the Sun

Everyone eventually needs a swimming break. Lay back and relax in the sun with a good book or magazine and a cold glass of iced tea or lemonade. Getting some sun will improve your mood and give you much-needed vitamin D, both of which are great for your health. Just don’t forget to apply sunscreen and wear sunglasses and a hat if needed. When you get too hot again, simply move to shade or go for another swim. 

Use Your Pool All Summer

The summer goes by fast. Before you know it, Fall is here and the pool is getting a bit too cold to even stick your toe in. If you don’t plan to heat it, then make sure you get as much use as possible out of your luxury pool all summer long. Use your pool for quiet time, family time, party time, and just inviting the kid’s friends over to swim. Maximize the potential of your pool by following the tips above.
