Summer in SoCal is hot
and SO much better if you have access to a pool - which thanks to this app - EVERYONE does
Arriving just in time for the heat of late summer, Swimply is a brand new service that allows folks with swimming pools to rent theirs out to complete strangers by the hour, describing itself as the "first online marketplace for pool sharing." In other words,it's an Airbnb for pools, and we've been waiting for something just like it for a long, long time.
The site, which was dreamed up when its founder was looking for creative ways to put his rarely-used backyard pool to good use, allows you to easily sign up and check availability of listed pools nationwide, then book them directly for the amount of time you'd like. Many of the ones we found listed have a one-hour minimum, though you can easily request whatever time-frame you're shooting for. The per-hour prices are all over the map, but we were able to find several pools in locations we checked with a going rate under $100.
Congrats - your life will basically be like this all the time now
