Hey there, Father's Day shoppers! Are you ready to make this year's celebration one for the books? Well, listen up because we've got some advice for you. The best way to shop for dad in 2023? ONLINE, baby! That's right, no need to waste precious fuel or time driving around town. Just sit back, relax, and let us bring the goods straight to your door.
Now, we all know that getting dad the perfect gift can be a bit of a challenge. But fear not, we've got you covered. And let's be real, no dad needs ANOTHER set of golf clubs (sorry, golf dads). So why not switch things up and get him some pool accessories? Trust us, it's the way to go.
We've compiled a list of "Pool Dad" approved gifts and accessories that are guaranteed to make your dad's day (and your pool's day, if it had a face). So don't wait until the last minute - get a head start on your Father's Day shopping and make this year one to remember!
Robotic Pool Cleaners
For the ultimate gift for the ultimate pool dad (trust us on this one) get him a robotic pool cleaner. We guarantee you that this has been on his wish list for the longest time and he’s been looking for justifications to buy one. A robotic cleaner is super easy to install and use (See our guide on how to use a robotic pool cleaner to see how simple it is) and it gives him more time to spend with the family rather than standing around the pool (under the blazing summer sun as well!) vacuuming for hours every few days.
And if he already has an old-style robotic pool cleaner that's tethered to a power cable, an upgrade to a corless robotic pool cleaner like the Water TechniX SoniX is SURE to bring a smile to his face!
Pool Heaters and Heat Pumps
Extend the swim season (or start earlier this year!) with Mr Pool Man's collection of energy-efficient pool heat pumps from Water TechniX. Pool heat pumps are designed with the latest technology to keep your pool warm for longer periods of time when compared with your traditional electric or gas heaters. It's the gift that keeps on giving when it comes to energy savings.

Salt Water Chlorinators
Have you ever wanted a salt water pool but couldn't really take the plunge because of the costs involved? Well, now's your time to avail of some of the best salt water chlorinators from Water TechniX at discount prices during Mr Pool Man's Father's day sale. No more manually checking pool chlorine levels and dosing the pool with chlorine and exposure to chlorine fumes. With a Water TechniX Salt Water Chlorinator, you can say goodbye to worrying about your pool chlorine levels.
Pool Accessories and Trinkets
You know what they say, it’s the little things in life that brings a lot of joy. Let’s continue our Father’s Day Buying guide with some pool accessories that your dad will love. Nothing flashy, just some things that have been on his radar for a while but haven’t really purchased yet that will make his pool life much easier.
Automatic Water Levelling Device
Australian summers are killer! The blazing sun can evaporate your pool water in no time at all and with El Nino looming on the horizon, this doubles the danger as well. Father’s day also marks the start of spring so expect temperatures to start rising. Save dad the effort of constantly refilling and monitoring your pool water levels with an automatic water levelling device. This simple pool accessory is basically plug and play, attach it to the pool, set the desired pool water level and he’ll never have to worry about visually checking the pool ever again.
This handy little gadget is not only useful for the pool, but for around the house as well. A venturi pump will allow dad to empty and change the sand filter media on your sand filters without resorting to manually scooping out the sand inside. A venturi pump can also make short work of puddles, flooded basements and anything that needs draining. And the best part is that it doesn’t take a motor or specialized equipment to use, just a regular garden hose and it’s good to go.
Aussie Gold Pool Pole Saw Pruner
Annoying branch above the pool that's hard to reach? No problem with the Aussie Gold Pool Pole Saw Pruner. This attachment attaches to the end of your standard telepole so you can easily get to those hard-to-reach branches safely and efficiently. Not only for pool use, but for all around general pruning use as well.
A Spa Bar
Get dad a floating spa bar! (Drinks and snacks sold separately) and treat him to a nice quiet evening in the pool with his favorite drinks and snacks. For more pool accessories and gift ideas, browse our full selection of pool accessories here.
Pool Exercise Equipment for the Active Dad
If you've noticed our theme here, it's about keeping dad at home. So here are a couple of things that will keep him home (partly because to save up on gasoline costs).
The first fitness gift for the active dad is Water TechniX Swim Tether Pool Resistance Belt Trainer (whew! That was a mouthful, try saying that five times really fast!) which allows him to swim continuously and work on his cardio no matter what size your pool is. Swim laps without, well, swimming laps. The other gift is the Life Resistance Kit Pool Swim Trainer Belt, Ankle Weights & Dumbbells which can give him a good low-impact, high resistance exercise regimen right there in your own pool!
Complete it all with some music
When cleaning the pool, floating around and enjoying some drinks, or even when exercising, nothing completes the experience better than having music play in the background. Forget about using your phone's speakers as your music source, it's not enough. Instead, get a floating bluetooth speaker. It's waterproof and it packs quite a punch for its small size. And the best thing is, you won't have to worry about getting an expensive sound system (or your phone) wet since this speaker doesn't need any wires to connect to the sound source, just connect the bluetooth and you're good to go.
For even more fun, you can opt to go with the one with the included light show! Who said disco was dead?
Shopping for a father’s day gift shouldn’t be hard especially when it comes to dads who care about their pool. As we all know, pool accessories are divided into two categories. Those that are absolutely needed like pool chemicals, testing kits and the like (these he can get for himself! Hahaha) and those that are wanted, meaning accessories and things that make life easier. By giving him gifts that fall in the “want” column, it will feel like an actual gift and not more work.
