No pool party is complete without great music, but if the radio is on in the house you probably won’t hear it very well outside. Solve the problem of extension cables and the hazard of water and electricity mixing, by investing in one of these Ecoxgear Ecoxbt waterproof wireless Bluetooth speakers. They can play for up to 10 hours on a single charge, have a USB cable and even a speaker so you can answer phone calls using it. Now that’s cool.

Our pool chemicals are highly effective, but most will require you to combine with a little elbow grease to get the best results. That is unless you invest in a Dolphin Nautilus Robotic Pool Cleaner with swivel cable to do the hard work for you.
