You may not be thinking of your pool and patio right now as the holidays approach. However, it will not be long before we are back to spending long hours by the pool with family and friends. Why not focus some of your holiday gift-giving on raising your warm weather outside time to new heights? Aqua Pools has inventory on a number of items that could be amazing holiday gifts that will enhance your backyard experience when warmer weather blesses us again. The news has been full of warnings that popular holiday gifts may be in short supply this year. Why not think outside the box and take advantage of the inventory your local pool store has on hand?
Robotic Pool Vacs
Who wouldn’t want to spend more time enjoying their pool than spending hours of drudgery maintaining it? Robotic pool vacuums are the way of the future. First of all, they are so energy efficient that they have practically no effect on your home’s energy bill. Running one for three hours costs about 15 cents! Next, they are incredibly easy to use. Put them in the water, turn them on, and let them do their thing. You don’t even need to be present while they clean your pool. Lastly, they are super effective at cleaning. Some even climb the pool walls, get into corners and steps, and even clean the waterline. Best of all, many robotic pool vacs are programmable, so you can decide when you want the cleaning to happen. Aqua Pools carries the Hayward Shark Vac® line of robotic pool cleaners and has several models to choose from. Give the gift of more time enjoying the pool rather than maintaining it.
The Adirondack chair is an iconic piece of furniture that has served us well since the early 1900s. The chair has a backward sloping seat and a slatted back. This slightly reclined position is very supportive of one’s back and bottom, making it a perfect chair for lounging on the patio, deck, or around the fire pit. It has wide armrests that are ideal for setting your drink, and also make it easy to heave yourself in and out of the chair. Aqua Pools is proud to carry the Perfect Choice® line of Polywood® Adirondack chairs. You could get a pair of them and create a nook for you and your partner to sit in at the beginning of the day with a cup of coffee or in the evening to catch up on the day together. Another idea would be to use a grouping of them around a fire pit for nighttime conversations and stargazing. Perfect Choice Adirondack chairs are comfortable, ergonomic, and available in a wide variety of colors. Create a focal point around your pool to enjoy your outside space more than ever.
Big Green Egg
The Big Green Egg® is the most versatile outdoor grill known to mankind. You can use it for high-temperature grilling, or as a smoker, a roaster, or even as an outdoor pizza oven. The Egg doesn’t rust and lasts practically forever — plus it comes in a multitude of sizes. This is the last barbeque grill you will ever need. The Big Green Egg is inspired by the Japanese Kamado grills, made of ceramic and used for grilling, roasting, smoking, and baking. Their thick, insulated walls work almost as a convection oven, ensuring that food cooks quickly and evenly. They require charcoal for cooking, and are extremely adjustable, allowing you to regulate the degree of heat in several ways. The number of foods you can cook on the Big Green Egg is staggering, and cleaning it isn’t a hassle. In fact, there is a whole community of Egg Fans who post recipes and hold events throughout the year. If you or someone in your household loves to grill, hooking them up with a Big Green Egg from Aqua Pools could be a gift that will be hard to top.
