A backyard with a pool, hot tub or water access via a lake or pond can become an outdoor oasis. A place where you can cool off with family and friends anytime during the warm Metro Detroit summer months. That means taking care of it with the proper equipment, supplies and some fun accessories.

Metro Detroit is home to a wide variety of pool, hot tub and backyard pond supply and accessory stores. These retailers have been busier than ever over the past 15 months as the pandemic had families scrambling to install backyard pools and purchase the necessary equipment and supplies to keep them in good shape. 

If you want to install a hot tub, an above-ground pool or take care of ones that you already have, there are expert professionals at these stores who can help you. They carry chlorine, testing equipment and important ingredients to a safe and healthy water amusement. Keeping your pool or hot tub ready at any time means some regular maintenance and occasional additional upkeep, so these experts can make recommendations about what you need and when.

Don’t forget the accessories and the fun pool and pond toys that will make the summer one to remember. There are easy, low-cost ways to upgrade your outdoor oasis. That can be as simple as inflatable toys, games or floatation devices. You also can go all out and get some larger amusements, such as floating islands for diving in-ponds or team-focused games for your pool. Whatever you like to do, there’s a supply store that will be happy to help you get what you need this summer.
