Homeowners In SoCal Are Renting Out Their Pools To Make Some Extra Cash

With a recent heatwave and coronavirus closing public pools, some homeowners in SoCal are renting out their pools to make some extra side money.

A start-up company called Swimply allows people to rent out their pools by the hour. It's almost like Airbnb but for pools.

One couple in Los Angeles has made nearly $7000 by allowing strangers to come to their home to use the swimming pool.  

As of Sunday, 165 pools were listed. Some were described as "kid-friendly" and others were "resort-like." The running rental rates were from $30 to $75 dollars an hour.
