Owning a pool usually means a flawless tan, level “Expert” in the childhood game of Marco Polo, water volleyball and cannon-balling into the deep end.  With families spending more and more time at home, these poolside past times may lose their allure.  Why not step up your aquatic entertainment a notch? We suggest, a DIY Dive-In Movie Night!  You might not be able to go to the movies, but you can bring the movies to you!

First things first, decide which movie you will view.  You can access a variety of movies: everything from “in-theatre” movies, new releases and classics on streaming apps such as Amazon Prime and Netflix.  You can give your family the full theatre experience by using a dry erase or magnetic board and spelling out, marquis style, the evening’s feature film.  Create a snack bar with your popcorn, candy and your favorite beverages.  Finally, blow up some rafts and inner tubes for in-the-pool seating.

Now you will need a way to view your movie!  You’re in luck!  We have found instructions that allow you to turn your phone into a movie projector and a bed sheet into a movie screen!

Don’t forget to take your family’s safety into consideration.  As you will most likely be poolside in the evening to enjoy your DIY Dive-In Movie theatre, you will want to consider lighting.  The folks over at thriftdiving.com had some great ideas that involve a balloon and glow sticks!

If you happen to give this idea a go, we’d love to see your pictures.  Email us your photos at [email protected]  Stay safe and enjoy your pool!

  • “Just wanted to thank you for a great product. After four weeks of trying several different products and also adding way to much chlorine, we can finally see the bottom of our pool. Added Revive! at 6PM last night, by the time we went to bed, we could notice a difference and when I got up this morning everything had settled to the bottom. Used the vacuum for about an hour this morning and were swimming this afternoon. Will probably have to vacuum once more, but so glad this product was recommended to us.”

  • “Easy, simple, worry free…these all describe how my pool maintenance has been since I started using EZ POOL! I have a big pool and it is not a big job with E-Z POOL, just once a week. Once the pool is open and clear in the spring, I just have Caryl’s experts test my pool sample once a week to make sure the balancing chemicals and pH are good. Algaecides are not needed. Brush, brush, brush, as Caryl recommends and my pool is beautiful all summer! Also, it is gentle to the skin and does not effect your hair color. I highly recommend E-Z POOL!”

  • “I have used the EZ Spa now for four years. It is the best spa treatment I have ever used. It makes the water feel really soft and refreshing. I use it once a week and forget it. My spa stays crystal clear. I love this stuff. Not to mention when you use EZ Spa you don’t have to buy so many other chemicals. I also noticed that EZ Spa is extremely gentle on the skin. I can’t say enough about how good this stuff is. Try it, you’ll love it!”
