You Can Rent a Private Pool Right Here in Connecticut
It's hot, the heat is oppressive and you just want to jump into your pool. Only problem is you don't have one. Now what do you do?
How about renting a pool for the day? Now I know what your thinking, how is this possible? Does someone bring a pool over to your house? The answer is not really, but now you can rent out someone else's pool by the hour, for the day, or night.
There's a website called Swimply that's basically Airbnb for pools. Hosts list their pools for an hourly rate, upload photos of their pool and lay out some ground rules for guests. Once you book your swim, your host will contact you with the final details regarding how to get onto the property and into the swim area.
Swimply's been around for three years, but this is actually the first time I've ever heard of this, and to be honest, it's not a bad idea. You get all the amenities of the pool without having to do all the work.
Right now, there are only a handful of places in Connecticut where you can rent a pool, and they are all listed here. So check them out, and know that relief from the heat is just a few mouse clicks away.
