Company Launches App Service That Lets You Rent Out Your Pool
In "Dammit, why didn't I think of that" news, a new company just arrived on the scene and they've created a way for you to make some extra cash this summer if you have a swimming pool you aren't using in your backyard.
According to KHOU, it's an app called "Swimply" and its described as an "Airbnb for your pool". Basically, you can list your backyard pool for rental. You can set your prices, pick the days it's available and even offer up other amenities like your hot tub or barbecue pit.
The great thing about this service is you don't have to open up your home if you don't want. After taking a quick dive through the site, there are already pools available for rent but in select cities including Houston.
In Houston, pool rental prices range from $40 an hour to $125 an hour depending on the size and amenities around it. I'm sure more cities will become available as folks get wind of this so go make some extra money and have fun!
