What’s wrong with chubbies?
There are plenty of good reasons why a swim trunk is a must-have item in a pool, but one of the most popular ones is cost.
Costs are high and so are the returns.
According to Swim Trunks Australia, a company that provides the poolside gear to over 1,400 swimming pools across the country, most of the time a new swim trundle will be sold for less than $300.
While the price is lower, many pool owners say the returns aren’t worth it as the swim trumps the swim.
“You’ve spent so much money, and now the only thing you can see is a little bump,” one customer, Sarah, told ABC Radio Melbourne.
This is an expensive product to buy and the only reason you want to buy it is if you want the swimmers to come out for a workout.
In a market saturated with swim trubbers, the idea of not getting a swim is understandable.
It’s like buying a new TV.
You can’t replace the TV and it might be expensive, but the cost is worth it to get the TV you want.
But it’s not only the price of the trunks that is a deterrent.
Many pool owners are not satisfied with the quality of the swimtrunks, or the fact that the trundle doesn’t come with a separate pump for the swimmer to put his or her hands in.
“I think it’s a bit cheap, you don’t need a pump and it’s really not going to do anything,” a customer, Rachel, said.
There are no guidelines on what constitutes a proper poolside pump, and it can be a bit tricky to determine exactly what the trumps is meant to do.
So what is it that makes a swimtrunk a must?
“They have a lot of features, a lot more features than swim trumbulls,” one of our swimmers said.
“They are very comfortable, they’re super-light and they are very, very cheap.”
The company says there are five features that make a good swim trundling trundle the right swim truncheons: the comfort, durability and versatility.
But the problem with these features is that many pool swimmers don’t know them, so it’s hard to know what they are for.
“We know a lot about swimming, and we have seen a lot,” another swimmer, Sarah told ABC News Breakfast.
“But we don’t understand why it is that we are not used to these features.”
The water is not perfect, the pump doesn’t work, the water is very cold, it is very windy, the pool is a lot darker than you would expect.
“It can be hard to tell what a swimtruk is for when you’re not swimming, but if you’re one of those pool swingers who knows how to use one, it can make swimming easier.
The swim trunnings also come with extra features such as a water purification device, a pump for water intake and a separate swim bag that you can keep in your hand for emergencies.
