Solve Pool Storage Problems with a Shed

If you are a pool owner, you know this perk also comes with a lot of maintenance requirements and related accessories. You have pool equipment that needs to be stashed nearby, toys and flotation devices that can easily get blown away in bad weather, and patio furniture that should be stored when not in use. In addition, family members and guests need a private space to change before and after using the pool - or you end up with a trail of water through your house! Backyard sheds provide a handy solution to all of these dilemmas.
With LP® Outdoor Building Solutions®, you can have a pool storage shed made from high-quality engineered wood products that resist moisture and fungal decay. LP ProStruct® Roof Sheathing with SilverTech® features a radiant barrier finish that reduces solar heat gain to help keep inside temperatures cooler in summer heat and brightens the interior. LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding includes treated wood strand technology that resists warping, splitting and cracking.

A Handy Solution for Storing Pool Toys

Keep your deck or patio neat, organized and free of clutter with a backyard storage shed. A pool shed is ideal for storing everything from pool chemicals to tubes, and protects these items from wind and rain during the winter months.

A Convenient Changing Area

If you don't have a mud room or pool house, swimmers likely drip water through the house before getting changed out of their swimsuits. With a shed that can be used as a changing area, your guests will have a private place for changing. When your shed is being used for purposes other than traditional storage, LP recommends installation of finish floor material.* This would be important for a changing area and would protect bare feet.

Find a Shed Dealer Near You

For help with selecting the best shed for your pool storage needs, we invite you start by searching for a shed dealer near you.
* LP does not recommend using LP ProStruct® Flooring with SmartFinish for pool shed applications.
