The Sun Station was born on our honeymoon. My wife and I stayed at a hotel that had a huge pool and “swim up” bar. The amenity was nice, yet it was very difficult to find an unoccupied seat. In addition, the atmosphere at the bar was generally louder than the rest of the pool. While not opposed to the amenities the bar provided, on a few occasions submersible seating would have been a nice addition to the book I was reading at the time. Had portable, submersible seating been available, I could have taken it to a remote corner of the pool, to be enjoyed in a more peaceful setting. The pool butlers were already offering rafts; why not offer submersible seating?
Later in the summer of the same year, I hosted a party at our pool. It became obvious that anyone outside of the pool became a drink butler for anyone in the pool. The ideas merged. We had already successfully prototyped the submersible seating. What did not currently exist; however, was a portable submersible stanchion that could accommodate any number of accessories.
We went on from there to have some real fun! Our pool went from the neighborhood hot spot to literally an R&D lab. Prototyping involved a lot of buckets, pvc piping of all sorts, and every possible accessory we could dream possible. What we’ve created is nothing less than spectacular. It’s an absolute must have, and it’s used ALOT. It’s lightweight (at just over 8 pounds empty) and is unobtrusive to pool play. As a matter of fact, it greatly expands the play aspects of a pool by adding a platform for other games (such as volleyball, basketball, and tetherball). Beyond that, it’s a great addition to hot tubs, RV’s, the beach, and any outdoor event!
The history of the Sun Station is deep with great memories. From the “aha” moments to the trial and error R&D sessions collaborating with friends, we’ve created something very special. Something that will continue grow as we identify the many uses it’s capable of adapting to.
We hope you enjoy and appreciate the Sun Station as we do. We’re committed to continuous improvement, and there’s no end to the accessories we’ll continue to create!
