Georgians looking to escape the oppressive summer sun have a new option thanks to a new app.

Swimply, an peer-to-peer rental marketplace for swimming pools, has officially launched in 26 states including Georgia.

I couldn’t see myself either renting time or using it - liability issues and sanitary issues are just 2 of them.

Interesting concept but I don't see how this will last. Way too many liability issues. Just imagine if someone was injured or drowned in your property. I also doubt neighbors would be thrilled with this. Different groups of people taking up parking, not to mention if some of them get rowdy. It just seems to me the liability issues alone would overshadow any extra money you could make from this app.
