Choose the right date
You might want to host a pool party for a special event ñ a birthday or anniversary or similar. While this is a great idea, it might not work out so well in winter, so always take account of the time of year before beginning.
You will want to try and choose a day where it won't be too hot or too cold, and there is minimal chance of rain or any other weather condition that may spoil the party.
Make sure your pool is clean
Pool cleaning is important for general usage, but it is especially important to make sure the pool is clean for visitors and guests. Clean the surface, check the pH balance, make sure the pump and filter are working as intended, and so on.
Get your pool people-friendly
Not everyone can swim, and so you need to make sure your party is as accessible as possible for everyone. Provide seating next to the pool, and ensure there are plenty of floating toys, rafts, and pool noodles.
Have spare towels on hand (because you know someone will forget theirs) and stock up on sunblock.
Choose the food
Do you want everyone to bring some snacks with them, or are you providing all the food yourself? Is it suitable to be eaten around the pool area?
Make sure there is something for everyone, and check if anybody has any allergies or special requirements before the day itself.
Turn it into a real party
Get some tunes playing with some outdoor speakers and get everyone in the party mood by playing a few games. Water fights can be great fun, but make sure to only include those people who want to play.
Keep some water handy
There will be plenty of water in the pool, but itís not suitable for drinking. With all the excitement and activity that a pool party brings, youíll need to keep some drinking water on standby to keep people hydrated (especially if it turns out to be a hot day) and help them cool down.
If you follow all these guidelines, you're sure to become known as a great pool party host!
