It’s the time of year when many of us are hustling and bustling, trying to come up with the perfect presents for our loved ones. If you’ve got a “swimming pool person” on your gift list, it may seem like a no-brainer to get them something that will enhance their pool experiences.
But there are only so many pool floats and volleyball nets a pool owner can use. While your pool-owning friends and family members love spending time having fun in the water, they also spend time keeping their swimming pools pristine. You can give a gift that will help them keep maintenance time to a minimum, which allows them to spend more time in the pool and less time working on it. Here are a few awesome pool gifts that pool owners may have on their wish lists:
Floating Solar Pool Pump
Utilizing solar energy for swimming pools isn’t new. Solar power has heated pools for years. However, solar energy is now being used for other aspects of pool care. Enter the floating solar pool pump! These silent pool saviors reduce pollution and save on energy costs, all while keeping swimming pools sparkling.
Floating solar pool pumps require no installation and no batteries. Check out this youtube video, to see one in action.
Robotic Pool Cleaners
Robotic pool cleaners make short work out of what was once a much-dreaded task. With a robotic pool cleaner, pool owners spend less time vacuuming and more time enjoying the water.
Powered by an electric motor and pump, robotic cleaners connect to a low-voltage transformer that plugs into a standard outlet, A robotic pool cleaner lifts up debris into the filter bag through its pump. Many models are sophisticated enough to determine the most effective way to clean a pool in the least amount of time. They’re smart enough to recognize the waterline and will back up and turn around instead of exiting the pool. Read more about these amazing robots here
Pool Automation System
If you’re playing Santa to someone who appreciates working from the sofa, a pool automation system may be the ideal gift. Using a simple smartphone application, pool automation systems help manage everything from pool chemicals to lights and water features, all at the touch of a button.

Smart Pool Thermometers
For pool owners, monitoring the temperature of the pool is a year-round necessity. This is commonly done with a conventional thermometer that floats in the pool, which has to be physically picked up and read.
A smart pool thermometer utilizes Bluetooth technology to monitor pool temperature constantly. These floating wonders then report the information back via a wireless device.
There are several different smart pool thermometers available. Read about a few of the best models here.
Of course, the ultimate pool gift would be to remove the burden of pool maintenance entirely and let pool lovers enjoy their swimming pools without worry.
