When we moved into our house, there was a hot tub on the balcony outside of the master bedroom. Pretty cool... right?
Well, the combination of the age of the hot tub (old), our lack of knowledge about it, the crazy prices that we found around here for the items we would need for its upkeep and the fact that I was pregnant or dealing with a newborn for a few years... all led to the eventual removal. Sad, I know. Who gets rid of a hot tub?
There are definitely times that I wish we had reconsidered, as the idea of taking a relaxing dip in the heated water while enjoying the cool fall air sounds awfully nice right about now. Maybe had we heard about Swimtown Pools years ago, things would have turned out differently!
With everything from pools to spas and all of the chemicals, cleaners, covers and parts you could need for them, Swimtown Pools has all of the items you need to keep your family's water fun running smoothly. Even though the cost of things like pool chemicals or a quality pool cover adds up quickly, Swimtown Pools makes online shopping easy and affordable.
Plus, even if you don't own your own pool, that doesn't mean that there isn't anything for you! Swimtown Pools has a great selection of pool supplies and spa accessories that would be perfect to bring along to the beach, lake or indoor pool the next time your family is ready for a little fun. I know my kids would have a blast with any of these:
For prices like $1.75 for these Animal Head Rings, it would be great to pick up a few extra for playing around with... and I imagine that my daughters would play on the 96" Two Headed Curly Serpent in the yard without any water - that's 8' of inflatable fun to climb on!
So, no matter if you have an above ground or in-ground swimming pool or a relaxing spa or hot tub, Swimtown Pools has everything you might want or need for happy, safe swims. With the temperatures dropping and the leaves changing colors, does your pool have a winter pool cover prepared to keep it in tip-top shape for next year?
For another way to keep summer alive just a little bit longer, Swimtown Pools has launched a Pool Family Fun Photo Contest encouraging people to submit their best family photos depicting fun in the pool. All you have to do to enter is upload your picture to their Facebook page, give it a short description and let them know where you heard about the contest from (which is right here, of course)!
All entries must be submitted by October 7th at midnight EST and a final round of voting will take place beginning October 11th. The grand prize? A Kodak EasyShare C182 digital camera - which you can use to take even more great photographs! So head over there and upload your picture today!
For a large selection and low prices, make sure you visit Swimtown Pools for all of your pool, spa or summer fun necessities. Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to fill up a cart with pool supplies, because...
One lucky person will win a $25 gift certificate to Swimtown Pools*!
