If you have a pool in your backyard, it could get you some BIG cash with a new app that has launched.

Swimply lets you rent your pool out when you are not using it. So, if you're on vacation, or even working all day and can't go swimming you could rent out your pool by the hour and make extra cash. Think of is like Airbnb, same concept except you're not renting out a house, you're renting out a pool. It's the Airbnb for pools, is how the app describes itself.

So, if you looking to make some extra cash, and you have a nice pool area that you are not using, you might want to think about renting your pool out for others to use. When I used the app to search the Quincy/Hannibal area, there is only one pool available to rent and not an expensive pool either. For $45 an hour, you can enjoy this private backyard pool and hot tub.

I'm thinking when more people know about this new app a lot more pools will be added to the list for this area. I know that summer is almost over, but there is still plenty of time to enjoy what's left. And for those of you who have a hard time finding a pool this summer, this may be an option for you and your family.

Now, I've never done an Airbnb (and I don't think I ever will) and I am not sure I will ever do Swimply. Not sure why, just a gut feeling I have mainly, but for those of you that are ok with renting out and renting in general this may be your next big way of making (or spending) money!
