SWIMPLY is a marketplace for pool owners to share their pool by the hour to those nearby who don't own one.

With Swimply.com, we are allowing the intimate and serene luxury of a private pool to be enjoyed and accessed by anyone while at the same time allowing pool owners to earn back their investment and even make a profit.

beyond obvious sanitary concerns touched on above, how do you handle legal exposure for potential drownings?

Hey @passingnotes, Solid one. At the moment, our team takes 24 hours to review the application of every pool and have a pretty intense review system that keeps our pools in tip top shape. We also have a double barrier waiver that all our users sign before any activity begins. Swimply is currently in the final stages of finalizing a partnership with an insurance company that will be providing an optional pool-sharing insurance coverage for hosts starting the march. The insurance will be complimentary for all hosts on the site at the time, but any new hosts after the announced date would simply be required to pay a bit higher of a commission to swimply.

Fantastic idea, love it. Any plans to expand outside of the US in the future?

Interesting idea, but it should be strictly regulated including sanitary norms.
