30th Anniversary of Shark Week


Shark Week 2018 begins on July 22nd!!! Are you ready? We are! All this month leading up until the debut on July 22nd, we will be posting Shark Week ideas for you to get your kids or your grandchildren having all kinds of shark fun in your backyard and pool!

Here are just a few ideas to get you thinking about Shark Week:


We'll be back tomorrow with some Shark Week Party Ideas!


Are You Aqua-Fit?


Have you heard that you can get in shape just by exercising in your pool? Well, you can! This summer, Clearwater will be posting lots of ideas about utilizing your pool and hot tub to build strength, trim down and get your heart rate going!

Today let's take a look at arm exercises...

Aqua Dumbbells can be purchased online or at your local sporting goods store. We found a nice pair and started using them to strengthen our arm and back muscles. Boy did they make a difference! Here are a few exercises that you can do with a pair of Aqua Dumbbells--try and do 10 repetitions of each set:


Start with these arm exercise, but remember to check with your doctor if you are at all uncertain if aqua exercises are a good idea for you! Also, remember that you are using the pool's water as resistance! It may not seem like you are doing a lot, but you are! Start slow!

Check out Henry's daily Facebook video--he loves to use the Aqua Dumbbells: https://www.facebook.com/groupclearwater/videos/10157339633227977/

Time to Swim Photo Contest!

It's that time of year again...

Get your cameras ready!

And get your video camera ready, too!

Clearwater is raising the bar on our summer photo contest! This year we want our customers to show off their pool and/or hot tub in new and creative ways! With all of the iPhone and Android apps for photography and video, it's time to see how creative our customers are with the theme "Time to Swim!"

Think you can you come up with something? We're giving you some ideas but we're pretty sure our customers are more creative than this:

Time to Splash

Time to Float

Time to Chill

We will have a photo AND video winner for the best "Time to Swim" pictures and videos taken in an above ground pool, an inground pool and a hot tub. That's three categories and 6 winners! Each winner will receive a $50 gift card to use at any of our Clearwater locations!

Start planning your "Time to Swim" entry! Work on this with your family! Pull out all the stops and show us your artistic talent!

But we do have a few rules...

1. You must keep it family friendly! 

We're a family business! That means if you are shooting a video keep the language clean and the swimsuits on! Keep the swimsuits on for photos, too!

2. Safe shots only, please!

We don't want any of you getting hurt while trying to win our contest! We're not looking for the craziest dive or belly flop--we're looking for the most creative image of you or your friends or your family diving or flopping!

3. You must share your entry on your Facebook page and tag Clearwater! You can't tag us if you haven't liked us, so go like us (click on image):

This is what it will look like when you tag us:

Every Friday we will share the best entries of the week on our Facebook page!

Remember to only include people who want to be on Facebook and whose parents permit them to be on Facebook!

4. You must say "If It's Time to Swim, It's Time for Clearwater!" in your video if you enter a video in the contest! 

We don't care when you say it, just say it and have fun saying it! 

5. Caption your image or video using the "Time to..." theme.

Do you exercise in your pool? Make a "Time to Work Out" video! Do you grill by the pool? Take some "Time to Eat" shots! Do you read while you float in your pool? "Time to Read" pic! The ideas are endless...

6. Use the hashtag #timeforclearwater when posting your photo or video on Facebook (and any other social media!). 

Who knows...you may be famous on Instagram for your #timeforclearwater images!

7. All photos and videos must be posted on Facebook and we must be tagged by August 17th.
