Having efficient, secure pool storage is a great way to help ensure you keep your hotel pool clean for your guests. Hotels and resorts deal with a multitude of challenges, from managing expensive equipment to coordinating construction and renovations around a busy schedule. There’s a lot of work that goes into maintaining a clean pool and ensuring that everything looks pristine for your guests to have an enjoyable time at your establishment. Renovations, regular cleaning and seasonal upkeep can be difficult to manage without a secure storage solution that you can keep on-site.

From enhanced security to providing ample space for equipment and materials, a storage container offers numerous benefits that can enhance your operations and ensure that your pool is always ready for guests’ arrival.

In this blog, we’ll explore how renting a storage container can be a game-changer for your hotel or resort’s pool.

A pool storage container can keep the clutter of cleaning supplies, equipment and pool covers out of the way, allowing your guests to feel more welcome when visiting your pool.

The Benefits of a Storage Container for your Resort or Hotel

1. Enhanced Security

Security is a top concern for any hotel or resort. Expensive pool equipment, such as pumps, filters and heaters are prime targets for theft, and with a constantly revolving clientele, a swift thief could be in and out and you’d be none the wiser.

A pool storage container offers a secure solution. These containers are made from robust materials and come equipped with security features that deter potential thieves. By storing your valuable equipment in a container, you reduce the risk of loss or tampering.

2. Weather Protection

Pools often require various tools and materials that are sensitive to weather conditions. From cleaning equipment to pool liners and diving boards, exposure to rain, sun or extreme temperatures can cause damage and reduce the lifespan of these assets.

A pool storage container provides a weather-resistant shelter for your equipment and materials. It keeps them dry and safe from the elements, ensuring they remain in optimal condition year-round.

3. Organization and Accessibility

A cluttered and disorganized storage space can lead to frustrating time waste as your team struggles to find what they need. With a storage container, you can create an organized storage solution tailored to your needs.

Shelving and racks can be installed inside your rental storage container, allowing you to neatly store and access your tools and materials.

For secure pool storage, storage containers are hard to beat. Their durable construction, security features, and portability make them a solid storage solution for any organization.

What’s the Benefit of Using a Pool Storage Container Over Other Storage Options?


Storage containers offer mobility and convenience. You can place them directly on your hotel or resort property, eliminating the need for time-consuming commutes to and from a remote storage facility.

This saves you time but also reduces the risk of damage to your valuable pool equipment. When you’re done using the container, it’s easy to unload the container and request pickup.


Pool storage containers are constructed from rugged steel, designed to withstand the harshest environmental conditions, including extreme temperatures and heavy rain.

Traditional sheds require frequent repairs and maintenance, but storage containers are built to last, providing you with a reliable storage solution for years.


Security is a top priority when it comes to safeguarding valuable pool equipment, and storage containers excel in this regard. These containers are built with security in mind, making them an ideal choice for protecting your equipment.

Most storage containers have robust locking systems that provide an extra layer of security. At Southwest Mobile Storage, we like to go above and beyond, so our rental units come with security features like a long lockbox, puck lock and slide bolt.

These options make unauthorized entry much more difficult, giving you the peace of mind that your equipment is safe.

Summer to Winter, Busy Season to Slow, We Have You Covered

A pool storage container can be an asset throughout the entire year. From the summer busy season to ongoing maintenance work, here’s how containers can help you:

1. Summer Season

During the summer, your pool attracts guests to rest and relax by the water. People are taking vacations, kids are eager to enjoy their time away from school, and business is thriving. What can you store during these busy times?

You can store poolside heaters or other pieces of equipment that won’t be used before the next winter season. Or you can use containers as storage for seasonal events, keeping Christmas, New Years and Thanksgiving decorations preserved for when you need them. Additionally, you can store gardening or landscaping equipment, keeping necessary equipment close while hiding it from the sight of your guests.

2. Off-Season Storage

During the slow season, your pool storage needs may change. While you might not need to store much during the summer because your pool is getting used more often, there will be more things to store when business is slower. Storing deck chairs, umbrellas, tables, pool floats and more can help maintain their condition. That means they’ll be ready to go when the summer rush floods back in.

We offer add-ons for pool storage, including shelving and racks. Ask your sales representative for more information on the different options we can add to your rental.

3. Long-Term Pool Maintenance

Pool maintenance is an ongoing process. Your storage container can continue to serve as a secure storage solution for that equipment. This makes routine tasks like installing pool liners, repairing leaks and other preventative maintenance more convenient.

In addition to storing pool equipment, pool storage containers can store excess furniture, keeping them well maintained until they’re needed again.

Using a Pool Storage Container When Expanding

If you need extra storage space, the modular nature of storage containers makes it easy to expand your storage without the hassle of building new structures.

When you need to return containers, it’s as easy as giving us a call asking for pickup. Following your first 28-day rental period, we prorate your costs the day after you request pickup. That allows you and your organization to adapt to the changing storage needs of your operations.

If you need more containers, give us a call. If needed, we can always add more containers to meet your equipment and material needs. Speak to a container sales representative today and let us know how we can help you.


When you need secure pool storage, it’s hard to beat a storage container. Because of their durable construction, security and mobility, they can be a solid storage solution for your organization.
