Homeowners can rent out their pools using companies like Swimply.

In the sharing economy, we can rent — or rent out — our homes and our cars, and now, our pools.

A pair of companies say they operate like an Airbnb for pools, where prospective swimmers can pay to rent a private pool for a specific amount of time.

Michael Goldstein is a travel writer and a contributor to Forbes. He’s written about one of these companies, called Swimply. The Show spoke with him to learn about the venture.
