Pool For Rent In Iowa, Louisiana

This is a fantastic concept. It's not just great for parties and get-togethers, but if you don't have a pool and want to go swimming on a hot summer's day, you now have the chance at your fingertips. My kids, Elijah (17) and Khloe (14), love to swim, so I might have to keep this app a secret because they would bankrupt me.

I looked up Lake Charles on the Swimply website and a pool came up for rent at a rate of $25 per hour in Iowa. That's not bad. However, I got a feeling once this article starts circulating on Facebook, we'll see a lot more pools for rent in SWLA.


This Pool For Rent Features:

  • great sunlight
  • basketball hoop
  • night lighting
  • shaded area
  • restrooms are available

It's a win-win situation. People without pools can now have access to swim whenever they want and pool owners can help recoup some of the money it takes to operate a pool. Because let's be honest, pools are crazy expensive to keep up.

The founders of Swimply were on an episode of Shark Tank and didn't get funded, but they've seen a 2,000% increase in users since then, partly because of the exposure, but also because of the pandemic. People are looking for safe alternatives for family outings.

So, if you have a pool, you might consider signing up for this service while it's hot.
