Just because you've been stuck in a 250-square-foot, sixth-floor walk-up—for which you pay a nauseating amount of money—for months doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the luxury of a swimming pool this summer.
Swimply is the first-ever online pool-sharing marketplace. What does that mean? Through the site, users can rent pools in their area for days of swimming, tanning (with sunscreen, of course) and general fun.
Though it's been around for a bit, Swimply has seen a huge spike in interest since the Covid-19 shutdown began back in March, as people started to realize public pools would probably not be open for the summer.
On Swimply’s website and app, potential swimmers can read about available pools, see reviews and book sessions. Owners can list their pool on the website and include customized information on availability, rules and prices, with a guarantee of an effortless transaction within 24 hours of the reservation. (And don't worry, each pool is inspected for safety prior to listing.)
