Are you still hoping to capture the best summer has to offer but don’t have a pool in your backyard or time to get to the beach? No worries! You can get the catch some rays and relax in the water in your own backyard thanks to a cool invention called a suntan tub.
What is a suntan tub (aka a sunbathing tub)? Think of it as a combination of a beach chair and a kiddie pool. This inflatable tub is a perfectly comfortable chaise that you can fill with water and lie back in to catch some rays.
Suntan tubs look like a big pool float, and that’s because they are — they double as a float you can use in a pool or at the lake. But the higher walls also allow users to fill the tub with water in your backyard so you can soaking in the sun and stay cool despite the summer heat.
Plus, it could be handy to have a sunbathing tub around in the early fall when those unseasonably hot days inevitably roll around but all the pools are shut for the season.
