This Strange App Lets You Rent A Swimming Pool

This is apparently no joke.

The Asbury Park Press is reporting a new wrinkle in the so-called “sharing economy” that already includes Uber, Airbnb and many others. This one is a Lakewood, NJ, company that is trying to get people to share their swimming pools.

This is for real, says the paper.

“Pools For U” allows homeowners to rent backyard swimming pools on an hourly basis. Yep, sounds strange to me, too. No word on whether lifeguards are included and what homeowners’ insurance companies think.
