Not everyone is lucky enough to have pool access through the hot Houston summer. 

But fret not—everything is rentable these days, including people's own swimming pools. 

STAY COOL: These Houston hotels offer day passes to their pools

Swimply allows you to rent a pool by the hour when the sun just gets truly unbearable. It's basically Airbnb for swimming pools.

A quick search on Swimply's site pulls up 81 pools ready for splashing or lounging in Houston. 

Looking for a tropical garden swim in the Heights? A pool with floats for everyone and a wet bar in Missouri City? A waterfront pool with fishing in Seabrook? Dog-friendly pools across the city? It's all there for renting by the hour, with some offering bonus amenities like outdoor showers, grill access, games and more. 

NOPE: Report finds fecal bacteria in Texas beaches, which could make swimmers sick

Swimply has 13,000 pool owners renting out their spots across the U.S., according to the Wall Street Journal's Sami Sparber. And if you're looking to make some extra cash, one pool owner reportedly made more than $100,000 renting out his pool by the hour for less than a year

Bookmark this for those 100-degree days. You're going to need the sweet relief of a pool soon enough.
