With Summer upon us, have you thought of throwing a pool party with family and friends to celebrate the remaining hot, sun shiny days? Well the folks here at Sapphire Pools want to help. To start with, since the temperatures in the summer months can be so incredibly hot and even uncomfortable throwing a pool party is a fantastic event. Surely you want your pool party to be an event that everyone remembers and one that everyone talks about long after the partying is over. With that said, we here at Sapphire Pools got your back and have some pretty important and ‘cool’ pool party tips to offer, including proper pool maintenance as well.
First and foremost, when it comes to efficient pool maintenance, you want to be certain that the chemicals in your pool are balanced, the water is clean and safe, and that all your pool equipment is working properly. With that said, choosing one of our service plans here at Sapphire Pools and Spas that is fitting to your individual needs and fitting to the size and style of your pool will ensure that your pool is properly functioning, your pool maintenance equipment working effectively and efficiently and that your water is absolutely safe for swimming, all of which are necessary when hosting the perfect summer pool party.
Once our technicians have tested your pool’s water and chemical levels and have made certain that everything is in proper working order, then it’s time to give focus to some simple but useful pool party tips. For starters, decorating is an absolute must. Decorative napkins, plates, ribbons, streamers, balloons and anything else that may tickle your fancy should be included in your party atmosphere. If you are going to set up tables, a centerpiece on each table would be a nice added touch and serving fun foods that are even colorful will add to the special event.
Stocking up on all your guests’ favorite beverages such as punches, lemonades, ice teas, juices, cocktails, and of course, plenty of water, is essential to a happy, healthy and safe pool party. People can be quite picky about their refreshments and beverages so be sure to cover all the bases. Make certain you have water easily accessible by the pool so that none of your guests get dehydrated whether you have ice buckets filled with cold water bottles or even plastic pitchers of cold water readily available to pour.
We also suggest you keep some sunscreen by the pool and make an honest effort to remind your guests to apply the sunscreen often and to avoid the harmful rays of the sun. You may even want to have some extra towels on hand in case someone mindlessly forget theirs. Oh, and don’t forget the music. Music is one of the most important elements of any great party and that includes your pool party as well. Just be certain to choose music that is pleasing to all your guests.
Lastly, make certain you have adequate lighting for your pool party. Try to avoid overhead lighting or florescent lighting since both can be quite dangerous near a pool. The use of candles and lamps will provide an adequate glowing light as will flameless battery operated candles.
