If you’re brave enough to venture beyond the AC during this scorching summer, it’s only a matter of time before you’ll be on the lookout for a few ways to beat the heat. Luckily, Minnidip, the brand known for its stylish blow-up pools, is making it a little easier to chill out with its latest launch: an inflatable fountain. Not only is this a great alternative for those who don’t want to commit to putting on a swimsuit and taking the plunge, it’s a cheeky way to add a bit of curb appeal to your property without the price tag of an actual stone structure. For just $55, you can have your own courtyard-style fountain, minus the McMansion vibes.
Available in two styles, Marrakesh (sold out for now) and Topiary, the water feature will add the essence of either a tiled mosaic or a manicured garden to your outdoor space. The inflatable is 7 feet wide and 2 feet tall, meaning it’s as much for adults as it is for pets and kids, and it’s supereasy to set up. It connects to a standard garden hose, and depending on the water pressure, the spray can reach a diameter of 10 feet on the highest flow or will trickle directly into the basin on the lowest setting.
It’s too hot this summer to stop there. Station a few personal misting systems around, add on an inflatable pool, or stay in the shade with a fashion-forward sun shield. And before turning in, towel down with a playfully patterned bath sheet. Even your neighbors with in-ground setups will be impressed.
