Not if it’s built by Parrot Bay Pools & Spas. We travel all across the country to meet with pool builders and vendors to find out the latest trends in the pool and spa industry. Check out these products to see if you would use them in your pool installation. Some of these products are so new they aren’t being produced yet, but some of them are ready to use and are already making our customers’ lives easier and a little bit more trendy.
Our owners traveled to Nevada this month to attend the annual Pool Spa Patio Expo. Here are some of the newest items they found:
SwimSafe™ is a state-of the art wearable swim monitor worn by swimmers and aquatics enthusiasts of all ages. From kids taking swim lessons and just learning to swim, to the elderly who may no longer swim, SwimSafe helps keep your family safe. Using our RFAO wireless technology, SwimSafe™ is always communicating with the portable hub. The Hub can monitor dozens of SwimSafe™ Bands, and the Band and Hub provide visible and audible alarm warnings when a swimmer is submerged for too long.
Why Do We Like It?
It is different from other pool safety monitoring systems because it allows the swimmer to be in the water, yet monitors how long they have been under the water and alerts when there could be a drowning risk. Did you know 85% of drownings occur when both parents are with the child? That’s because mom thinks dad is watching and dad thinks mom’s got it under control. These are currently in a pre-order stage and we do expect the price to come down. But, can you put a price on safety?
Lightstreams Exquisite Glass Tile
Whether you want a fiberglass or concrete pool these glass tiles are the ones for you.
Why We Like Them
The Lightstreams Tiles were the most beautiful tiles on the entire show floor. We looked at a lot of tile and they caught the most light and truly were exquisite.
Wooden Diving Boards
The first wooden diving boards ever made. It is handmade and yes still has the power to bend.
Why We Like It
It looks more like a piece of art than a diving board. The photo does not do it justice. It is truly beautiful in person.

Why We Like It
It’s clearly the best advance in pool lighting since the colored light. Did we mention, this one changes colors too.
