No pool area is complete without floating lounges, toys and other fun accessories. Unfortunately, a lot of department stores only carry standard floaties and inner tubes. However, a few businesses local to Boston carry pool accessories, tools and parts so pool owners can get everything they need in one place. Pool owners can find everything from toys that help little ones get comfortable in the water to lounges with cup holders so they can float peacefully for hours.
