It’s mid June and the sun is shining, the days are getting longer, and you still haven’t picked up something for Father’s Day! Well, with the right gift you and your father can enjoy the outdoors this weekend and every weekend for months and years to come. We’ve put together some suggestions for fun and functional gifts that will give your father more quality time in the backyard with family and friends. Polaris Pool Cleaners Is your dad the “pool cleaner”? If so, it’s time to look at an automatic pool cleaner instead! Whether you’re purchasing a new cleaner, or looking for an upgrade, your pool cleaner is the ultimate gift this Father’s Day. Not only will automatic pool cleaners improve water quality, they do so in a matter of hours. They also reduce long term maintenance by preventing the build up of dirt and debris, which protects your pool’s filtration system. Polaris offers a range of cleaners like the Polaris 280 pressure side cleaner and robotic cleaners like the Polaris 7240 Sport and the Polaris 965iQ. These gadgets lighten the work load for hard-working dads and make ideal gifts for the technologically savvy. Pool ChemicalsPool chemicals are another time saving gift (especially if you offer to use them to treat the pool yourself). Their affordability makes them excellent add-ons, or options for gifts that kids can afford to purchase themselves. Here are some suggestions:

  • Natural Chemistry products are naturally based, phosphate free, cleaners that maintain water quality
  • Sanitizers are always good to have on hand to maintain pool chemistry
  • Water Testers make it easy to keep an eye on the chemical balance of your pool
  • Shock keeps your pool algae free and is a necessary part of regular maintenance.

Any of these pool chemicals will take some of the stress out of maintenance and give Dad more spare time. Lounge Chairs What if your dad is already on top of their pool maintenance routine? In that case help him relax by picking up a floating lounge chair. Floating on the water with a drink in the cup holder is a great way to unwind after a long week. Plus, this lounge chair is easy to assemble. Patio Furniture Sometimes it’s good to think outside the water and sometimes relaxing by the water is just as good as relaxing in it. A book lover might enjoy a comfortable chair to sink into as they read in the fresh air. Or consider a side table so they can put their feet up. Outdoor dining sets are great for dads who love to barbecue, but don’t want to have to keep heading inside. They also make a great option for those who like to host family gatherings or other events. Every father is different, but any father will appreciate a gift that lasts. Check out our Father’s Day sales for gifts designed to help your dad enjoy the outdoors now, and for years to come. Remember, the best gift is the gift that gives your hardworking dad a break while helping you make the most memories together!
