People Are Using Inflatable 'Suntan Tubs' to Stay Cool This Summer

·1 min read

Summer is in full swing and boy, is it hot.

We've officially reached the point in the season where it feels almost unbearable to venture outside between the hours of noon and dusk. (No wonder Ladd and the cowboys wake up so early!) Given the choice between sitting under the blazing sun or in front of a cool A/C unit, the man-made machine will win every time.

That is, of course, unless you have a pool.

People with pools tend to share a totally different outlook on summer. The temperature is in the triple digits? No problem! There's a UV index of 10? Sounds great! When you have a pool to stay cool, summertime is a total breeze. (Just ask Ree's dog, Duke!)

For everyone else who has been living without a summer sanctuary in their backyard, we have big news. The internet's savviest shoppers have finally found a genius cure for the warm-weather blues.

Two words: Suntan. Tub.

Also known as a tanning pool or a sunbathing lounger, this inflatable invention is the easiest way to create your own personal outdoor oasis. All you have to do is blow it up!
