1. Storage Bin Swimming Pool Accessories

Having a lot of swimming pool accessories is cool, but it can also make your pool area appear cluttered. A storage bin provides a place to store your swimming pool toys and other inflatable devices.

Storage bins come in different sizes and are made from durable materials designed to withstand wet conditions and different seasons. 

You can choose from containers with lids or open mesh carts. You can purchase a storage bin to match your outdoor furniture with extra investment.

2. Inflatable Flamingo Drink Holders

Can you have a home swimming pool without floating flamingos, or is that only in Florida? Regardless of where you reside, inflatable flamingo drink holders are a cute pool accessory.

Depending on your family’s size or how many guests you entertain, the drink holders come in multi-packs of three, six, and a dozen. Now you can take drinks into the pool with you. They hold bottles, cans, and cups.

You can also pair your flamingo drink holders with flamingo float tubes.

3. Inflatable Hammock Pool Float

Hammocks are great for a lazy summer’s day. Now imagine relaxing on a hammock designed to be used in a swimming pool. Inflatable hammock pool floats come in different sizes and designs.

Basic hammock floats hold one adult comfortably. Or you can kick it up a notch and invest in an Aqua 4-in-1 floating hammock.

The 4-in-1 float allows you to reposition the inflatable device for use as a chair, saddle, hammock, or drifter. Best of all, it is designed to hold up to 250 pounds.

4. Inflatable Movie Screen with Storage Bag

Does movie night in the pool sound like an enjoyable evening for the family? Inflatable movies screens are growing in popularity. Some have both front and back viewing capabilities.

Whether you’re in the pool on the patio, you can still enjoy the show.

The movie screens can range in size, with 14 – 16 ft wide being the average size for most residential backyards. 

5. Inflatable Tubes

Inflatable tubes are fun when playing swimming pool games. You can enjoy water basketball, volleyball, and even tennis. The inflatable tubes help players stay afloat and engaged in the game. 

The tubes came in various designs, colors, and sizes.

6. Outdoor Cooler Table

Outdoor cooler tables allow you to keep beverages cool and close to the pool. Because they are portable, you can place the swimming pool accessory anywhere you want and move it when needed.

Cooler tables come in various sizes and designs.

7. Pool Accessory Hangers

Your swimming pool needs accessory hangers to keep the pool area free of clutter. That way, you can keep hoses and poles away from the pool area when not in use. The hangers are connected to your fencing or walls and used mainly to store pool maintenance equipment.

The hangers are also helpful for inflated pool rings and other swimming pool games.

8. Spa Waterfall Fountain

Having a waterfall feature in your pool doesn’t have to break the bank. You can create a waterfall feature that sprays water at different heights with adjustable directions. These portable spa swimming pool accessories are under $30.

Add LEDs to light your pool, so it becomes the focal point of your outdoor space at night time.

9. Canopy Island Inflatable Lounge

Inflatable float lounges with covers are for the mature pool owner. The floats allow you to spend a comfortable afternoon in the pool. You can relax and enjoy a cool beverage while taking in some soon.

The Canopy Island Float is excellent for hot summer days when the sun rays are directly above. The adjustable canopy allows you to decide how much sun you want to take in. It’s also large enough for two people.

10. Towel Warmer

No matter how warm the temperature is outside, most residential swimming pools are filled with cold water. If you’re lucky enough to have a heater so you can enjoy the pool year-round, that’s a bonus.

A towel warmer is a great asset regardless of the pool’s temperature. After exiting a swimming pool, a delightfully warm towel reduces the uncomfortable chill we experience when leaving the water. 

A towel warmer isn’t cheap. However, it is worth the investment.

11. Wireless Floating Pool Speaker

Take the party into the pool with wireless floating speakers. The speakers allow you to play your favorite music while in your home swimming pool. They are operated by using a Bluetooth connection.

Several brands on the market offer different features. Things you can look for when choosing a speaker include:

  • 50-hour battery life
  • Cupholder
  • FM radio tuner
  • LED lights
  • Pool lights
  • Suction cup

Of course, your floating radio should be waterproof and offer loud quality sound.
