Pools Plus recently announced the grand opening of their new retail swimming pool and outdoor store and showroom, where they provide the latest in swimming pool chemicals, testing, equipment repair, and outdoor living amenities. Yes, Pools Plus builds pools, but they do so much more.
When you visit Pools Plus – located by Bodean Restaurant & Market on 51st Street just east of Harvard – you’ll enjoy meandering through a showroom full of patio furniture, bird feeders, wind chimes, outdoor whimsical decorations, plates, glasses and goblets, placemats and napkins, pottery planters, outdoor fireplaces and kitchens, pergolas, smokers and grills, and lots of grilling and cooking accessories. They also have a variety of patio and poolside tables, chairs, and chaise lounges, most of which are available in a variety of colors and custom material coverings.
Brothers Jay and Josh Kingsley and their father Danny are co-owners of Pools Plus. If you fancy yourself a great backyard cook or game day tailgater, you’ll certainly want to check out the versatile, durable and easy-to-use Primo® grills and smokers on display in the Pools Plus showroom. “When you upgrade to Primo,” says Josh, “you’ll enjoy the ultimate satisfaction of preparing the most sensational foods imaginable. And Primo is the only ceramic cooker made in the USA.”
According to Josh, ceramic efficiently retains heat, locking in moisture and flavor. A Primo cooker enables you to smoke foods for 20 hours at temperatures as low as 180 degrees, or turn up the heat to more than 500 degrees for perfect searing. The Primo smoker is available in three styles, and each product is handmade and carefully inspected for quality prior to leaving the factory. “Primo is the most efficient grill and offers the largest cooking surface on the market today,” says Josh.
Pools Plus also carries numerous accessories that include rack extensions, firebox dividers, drip pan racks, baking stones, ash tolls, grill lifters, rib racks, fire starters, grill covers and much more. The Primo advantage is its oval shape that provides versatility, efficiency and capacity.
Pools Plus also carries a nice lineup of Bull barbecue grills and components to provide a cooking solution loaded with quality, value and reliability. And if you’re looking for something to spruce up eye appeal on your patio or deck, you’ll want to check out the selection of Breezesta is an outdoor product line of Recycled Poly Furniture – and it’s made in the USA. Products come in 20 vibrant colors, and each one is environmentally friendly. “The reason Breezesta feels stronger and sturdier,” says Josh, “is because it is.” The material is maintenance-free poly lumber and is tough, durable and guaranteed against twisting. “Each piece of furniture carries a residential lifetime warranty against cracking, splintering, chipping, peeling, rotting and pest infestation.”
Summer’s almost over and fall is one of the most enjoyable times to be outdoors in Oklahoma, whether you’re entertaining family and friends in the backyard or tailgating prior to your favorite football team taking the field. Come by and say hello to the Kingsley men at Pools Plus. You can also find Pools Plus on Facebook.
