One way to beat the heat: rent a garden pool

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – Central Ohio is facing another dangerously hot day, with daytime highs in the mid-90s that look like 105-110°. The heat will continue Thursday with temperatures in the low 90s, and into the mid 80s on Friday.

Monday night’s storms and Tuesday’s heat also caused widespread power outages in central Ohio, with nearly 63,000 AEP customers without power Wednesday.

In addition to city cooling centers open Wednesday and Thursday, Ohioans have another way to beat the heat: Swimply, an online marketplace for private pool rentals. Think of Swimply like Airbnb, but for pools.

With Swimply, browse nearby pools, view amenities, and read reviews to find a pool that’s perfect for you. Pools can be booked instantly once approved by the host. Once confirmed, you have access to the exact address, entry and exit information, Wi-Fi, and anything else you might need.

Columbus pools on Swimbly average between $45 and $65 per hour. Each listing provides proximity to your location, a rating from previous visitors, photos of the property, a detailed description, whether the pool is kid and pet friendly, maximum number of guests, and other features. Pools often allow maximums of eight to 30 people.
