The contest seeks to remind homeowners and families of the ultimate summertime relaxation as the season comes to a close – catching some poolside rays in the backyard. Everyone enjoys the summer heat in their own way, but pools are a quintessential image of good-natured fun.
According to Bruce Porter, Hayward’s Director of Marketing Communications, they’re looking for submissions to capture the essence of pure joy that swimming pools represent. Although everyone’s perspective is unique, the pool experience at its core is about spending time with family and friends, health and happiness.
