Some would argue that the best gifts are practical gifts that serve a purpose and make the life of the recipient a little bit easier. But, there’s no rule that states that practical gifts can’t also be fun. Choosing a practical gift for your favorite pool owner that is not only fun but also inexpensive would be even better.
Remote control pool skimmers, for example, make practical and fun gifts that are also quite inexpensive. Pool skimmers aid in pool maintenance by skimming the surface of the water and picking up floating leaves and other debris. Remote control pool skimmers make this necessary job more fun. Kids and adults enjoy steering the skimmer around the pool, and surface cleaning becomes less of a chore.
When water freezes, it expands by approximately 9%. When this water is in your pool skimmer, that expansion is just enough to cause damage. Instead of repairing or replacing your pool skimmer each spring, protect it with a Skimmer Guard when you winterize your in ground or above ground pool in the fall. This handy (and affordable) little gadget is made to absorb the expansion that occurs during a freeze, so it protects your skimmer all winter from damage caused by expanding water. Instead of expanding outward and cracking the skimmer, freezing water will actually compress the Skimmer Guard.
Skimmer Guard proves to be an easy and inexpensive way of saving yourself the hassle and expense of dealing with a damaged skimmer each spring.
