Enjoy Your Pool in the Fall – Dive In Movie Night

Happy Fall, Y’all!

Cooler weather is finally here, but don’t close your pool just yet!

Over the next few months we are going to be bringing you fun ideas for how to enjoy your pool or spa in Fall and Winter.

Have a “Dive In” Movie Night

One of our favorite things to do by the pool when the weather starts to get cooler is have a “Dive In” Movie Night (or a Football Game Watch Party)!
To do this, here are the things you’ll need:

  • Heat up the pool or spa
  • Find a projector
  • Make an outdoor projection screen
  • Hook up your DVD or streaming player
  • Make SNACKS

Heat Up the Pool or Spa

If you want to heat the pool for the party, we recommend that you begin heating at least 24 hours before; and if you are going to be using the spa, start heating at least an hour before to ensure maximum warmth.
