Kids are among the ones who enjoy pools more than anyone. They can find ways to enjoy pools for several hours on end, whether it’s by themselves or with siblings or friends. But what can enhance a child’s enjoyment of a swimming pool even more? The answer is the installation of new pool features.
Adding new pool features can be a great way to enrich pooltime fun for your kids. The only question is which ones you should install because there are so many options from which to choose, and different pool features serve different purposes. Here are some suggestions we have for pool features that could make it easier for your kids to enjoy your swimming pool.
This pool feature is especially handy for small children and babies who enjoy sitting in shallow water and making splashes. A beach entry is a small slope that leads into the pool, and it allows people to get exposed to the pool water without getting totally wet. It’s not even just handy for kids. It’s also great to have for anyone who has a physical disability or for seniors who want to get into a swimming pool without needing to use steps or ladders.
These entries do take a decent amount of space, so make sure you have enough room to make them work. Consult a pool contractor to see if a beach entry is realistic for you.
A fun pool feature you can install is a water slide. As an option for getting into the pool, it’s a welcome alternative, allowing swimmers to have fun before they even make contact with the pool.
Certain safety precautions must be taken into account. For starters, make sure your water slide can accommodate whatever weight it needs to handle. Also, be sure that the water is deep enough because the slide shouldn’t cause anyone to make heavy contact with the pool floor.
Sometimes, you just have to avoid the sun. This is where canopies come into play. After playing in your pool for long enough, you’ll want to minimize your exposure to sunlight before ultraviolet rays can do too much damage. With a well-placed canopy, you can still enjoy spending time near your pool while having sufficient shade to protect yourself against the sun.
