    What to do with the towels??

    Now that the pool is in I find I have no good solution for all the wet towels. I hate having them hanging all over my chairs. Does anyone have a good solution for this? I have looked at some outdoor towel racks online but they don't seem very sturdy. Any suggestions?

    When we had a chain link fence around our pool, I bought some nice shower curtain hooks (s-shaped) hung those on the fence and then hung the towels on them to dry. Was a great way to keep them off the chairs. But I don't have the chain link fence anymore, so I need to come up with something new also.

    I use something similar to this. Mine is close to the ladder so the kids grab a towel inside and hang it as they enter the pool. When they are done drying off they hang it back there. Later on after they are dry the pool fairy(me) folds them and puts them back in the house.
    1) The size of your pool in gallons 4440.
    2) The type filter you have is an Intex 2500 gph and it has a re-useable fabric filter
    3) If your pool is an AG (above ground)
    4) Intex 15 by 48 metal frame.
    5) If you know, tell us the size pump 2500gph and the size (flow rate) of your filter.

    I put some hooks on the house (brick) and we hang them there. Looks a little tacky, but I put them in an area where no one sees except on neighbor. Last year I did every towel every single time it got used. That was for the birds!

    We have ours draped on the ladder for now since we don't have a deck but for drying, I hang them on the rail of the front porch. It's not the worst thing I've had hanging on the front porch. Come September 1st, ALL my camo is hanging on the front porch for everyone to see, until mid December.

    Hey... It's my porch!

    Make a clothes line! Just string out a piece of rope or cord between two sturdy objects, you can hang a lot of towels if it's long enough. Done!

    Wet towels are always an issue, I finally broke down and bought a cheap used dryer to install in the equipment room next to the pool pump a few weeks ago, now I just need to get it wired up.

    I used a deck block, a 4x4x6' post, and attached 2 double hooks on each side. I have the deck block in a large planter and covered the block with river rock. It has never blown over and takes up very little space.
