Stay Hydrated With A DIY Pool Cooler

Tired of having to get out of the pool to grab a drink? This summer, take a few minutes to collect these common household items and create your very own DIY pool cooler. Here is what you’ll need and the steps to take so you can spend as much time floating in the water as possible in our triple digit heat here in Phoenix, Arizona!

What You’ll Need:

Pool Noodle – Rope – Plastic Bin w/ Lip – Ice & Beverages


1. Cut the pool noodle into 4 pieces. Make sure each piece is the length of each side of your plastic bin. Try to use a plastic bin that will only require one pool noodle.

2. Take your rope and thread it through your pool noodle sections, making sure that when you tie the rope, the noodle sections are snug against the side of the bin under the lip.

3. Add a knot to create a handle at the end of your rope, with about a foot between your knot and the bin.

4. Add your ice and beverages and place your floating cooler in the pool.

5. Dive in & enjoy!
