Getting your pool ready to open up in Spring can mean more than just preparing the water for swimming. It can also mean sprucing up your pool side with some new pool furniture. Pool furniture takes a real beating over the course of a season — wet bodies, wet towels, standing water, tanning products, and harsh weather can take a toll on your standard variety pool furniture. Upgrading to a better quality furniture has a number of advantages over pool furniture you find at local big box department stores or home improvement warehouses. High-quality pool furniture is good-looking, durable, able to withstand all kinds of pool side abuses, and (best of all) is easy to clean and maintain. It’s hard to deny the value of high-quality pool furniture when compared to its cheaper, flimsier, and significantly shorter-lived competition.
