The coolest! 4 must-have pool gadgets this summer

We reveal the hottest gadgets when cooling off. Location: BIG4 Deniliquin Holiday Park, NSW.

With summer just around the corner, many of us are gearing up to spend plenty of time in the pool.

Whether it’s at a BIG4 park, at home, or a local pool, there’s always a need to keep cool.

And this summer, you can also be the coolest kid on the (dive) block.

Our friends at Poolwerx have put together this list of must-have pool accessories to keep you entertained this summer.

You'll be all smiles with these new accessories. Location: BIG4 Sunshine Resort, South West Rocks, NSW.

1. Floating speaker

Enjoy music while in the pool with the Floating Bluetooth Light Show and Speaker. This floating speaker allows you to play music wirelessly from your phone, and you can even answer your phone with it.

It’s perfect to set the mood for pool parties or to just relax at home with your family.

Some of the great features include:

  • The light show is synched with your music
  • 5-Watt full-range speakers
  • Wireless broadcast reaches up to 12m
  • All controls are on the speaker, making it easy to use in the pool
  • You can play music and run the light show for up to six hours.

Even when you've had enough of the pool, the floating speaker is still hard at work.

2. Volleyball game

Cricket is synonymous with an Australian summer, but this time mix it up with volleyball. This volleyball set includes an inflatable volleyball and net, and the pole bases are designed to add anchor weights if needed.

This family-friendly game will make your pool the place to be this summer.

Family-friendly volleyball. Or also available for the more serious competitors.

3. Blow-up ride-on toys

If you’re looking for some gift ideas for Christmas, blow-up ride-on toys are great for kids young and old.

Spend the day floating away on a giant flamingo or popsicle, or if your kids love a water fight, choose a blow-up ride-on plane with a water gun.

These are perfect as a stocking filler or a secret Santa gift.

Blow-up ride-on toys are a regular favourite with new varieties on offer each summer.

4. Floating beverage cooler

When it comes to lazy days in the pool, this is the ultimate. If you don’t feel like getting out of the pool for a cool refreshment, the floating beverage cooler brings the drinks (and food) to you.

With an insulated cooler and lid as well as drink holders, you can come and go as you float around or between volleyball games. It helps to keep your food and drinks cooler for longer.
