Rent A Private Swimming Pool This Summer Using This App
No pool? No problem.
Swimply is a marketplace that allows owners of underutilized swimming pools to rent them out for an hourly fee. In turn, users get a private pool to enjoy.
Asher Weinberger came up with the concept after he bought his home back in 2018. As he juggled requests to use the pool, he realized there might be an opportunity in the aquatic space.
He and co-founder Bunim Laskin took their fledgling idea to 80 pool owners. Only four were receptive.
Fast-forward to 2021, Swimply has over 250,000 users & more than 10,000 listed pools. Business picked up considerably during the pandemic when the app experienced a 4000% growth.
According to Swimply’s public relations representative, Kristen Marion, 100 hosts request to come on the platform per day.
The average cost to rent a pool on Swimply is $45 an hour. All prices are determined by the hosts and depend on the location of the pool and its specifications.
Guests can message hosts with specific questions before booking. Safety is also a top priority for the company. Hosts can choose to be home during rentals or not.
“The Swimply Protection Guarantee is our commitment to our hosts and guests to make things right in the event that something goes wrong during a U.S.-based Swimply reservation,” said Marion.
“We want to provide users with the peace of mind that they will be taken care of in the rare event of injury or property damage. Swimply Protection Guarantee is offered at no additional charge.”
The company is also expanding to offer other recreational activities via a new marketplace.
Swimply is available in over 125 markets including the U.S, Canada and Australia.
