    Cool Pool Gadgets

    So who has some cool pool gadgets? I have been looking for a submarine or boat but haven't found one worth anything yet.

    I do have some color changing LED floating spheres. They are cool at night.

    I was thinking about trying some of these mini things out next summer. Thought my daughter and I could have some fun with them.

    I plan to make one of these as soon as the snow melts. I also plan to do some lighting on the deck and some type of wifi/bluetooth with some outdoor speakers.

    Subs would be fun. An rc boat would be cool, but I would want a fast one, and I would be afraid I would tear my liner if I ran into the side. Maybe that's an unrealistic fear. I looked into the laminar flow nozzle. I may try something this summer. Led would put it over the limit $$ wise.

    I am guessing there might be a cheaper way of lighting it up.

    OY thing I have read about the subs is the cheap amazon versions don't work too deep.

    Got a little rechargeable battery operated boat that hauls serious butt. Not sure the brand, but it's been a lot of fun and my daughter has loved it!

    I'm thinking about a boat. Need to find something in the <$35 range and see how it works. At least then we can get some enjoyment out of the pool prior to swim season.
