When you live in Northwest Ohio or Southeast Michigan like we do, you could be skeptical about adding an in-ground swimming pool. The summers aren’t very long, and you may think that the enjoyment is worth the investment but we have seventeen reasons to prove that owning a pool is well worth it!
The kids are only young once – Don’t believe us? Just ask the parent who has sent a son or daughter off to college wondering where the time went. If there ever was a perfect reason to purchase a pool today, it’s children.
Know where the kids are – Your swimming pool often becomes one of the favorite parts of the neighborhood once temperatures start to climb in the summer. You’ll find that you spend numerous evenings and weekends lounging pool side or floating in the water. However, the social benefits for families with children are huge. Instead of wondering where your children are, you are more likely to see them inviting their friends over to swim. Allowing the neighborhood friends over can be challenging but rewarding for you and the other parents. An in-ground pool inspires a sense of togetherness, improves friendship and can help develop a child’s swimming skills. Of course, the safety rules when it comes to children always need to be considered.
Something special for the family – There’s something to be said about looking forward to having a new inground pool. Our families eagerly await the day the construction begins. For most, it’s a dream come true.
Confident your pool is clean – Everyone wants to go swimming in the summer time, yet a public pool may not be where you want to go. Having your own pool gives you control over the cleanliness of the water. While your swimmers can still contribute germs to your pool, you are in control of often and how well it’s cleaned.
Good, Clean Fun – Children of all ages, from 2 to 92, can enjoy your pool. Pools represent all the good things of life. If grandma and grandpa no longer can get in the water, they still enjoy sitting pool side watching their family splash around.
Your own built-in theme park – With the multitude of games, floats, slides and toys now available, it’s no wonder your pool has become the ‘theme park’. The best part is there are no long lines waiting to go down the slide. Fun happens on a continuous basis.
Your very own tanning salon – No need to fake bake. It’s a fact, families who have pools have better tans. All via a natural source, the sun. Whether you are lounging on a float, in your chair, or you’ve added a tanning ledge to your pool, your perfect tan will the envy of your circle. Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t encourage you to exercise proper exposure to the sun.
Your personal fashion statement – If you have a flair for fashion, a new pool can be built to your custom design. You can coordinate colors, size, and shape to fit your style. Take it one step further and add accents like your chairs, suit, towels and sun glasses to match.
The health benefits of owning a pool are tremendous. It is possible to treat yourself and your family to great entertainment and a healthier lifestyle. A swimming pool in the backyard is all of that, and more.
Here are a few reasons why it’s good for you!
The best exercise – When you use your pool as part of your daily exercise routine, you’ll find that aquatic style exercises are the best for the body. Many trainers and physicians agree. Water is more beneficial because the stress on limbs and joints is less. Along with that, if you or a family member suffers from the pain of arthritis, a regular water program is one of the best ways to beat the debilitating effects of the disease.
Experience a better night’s sleep – Many families who own swimming pools have concluded that a late evening swim or a few minutes in your spa allows for a great nights’ sleep. We all know how a full day of activity can cause your children to fall asleep quickly too.
A strong heart – Most people recognize that any exercise program and a healthy diet is a great way to stay in shape. Swimming can help all family members maintain their weight, and build a strong, healthy heart. Your in-ground pool may be the ticket to a longer, healthier life.
Work off that big meal quickly – The pool in the backyard is more than just convenient. There’s no better way to get your metabolism revved up then a few laps up and down your pool.
Sports are more fun in the pool – While beach volleyball is fun, it’s also sweaty. Why not string a net across the pool? You can stay cool and get a good game in. At our retail store, we have a variety of pool games, including basketball hoops and volleyball nets.
Your inground swimming pool is convenient.
Beat the heat – When it’s hot outside, nothing satisfies the mind and body like a dip in the pool. You and your family can be refreshed with little concern about heat waves.
Conveniently Close to Home – Who loves packing up the kids and all the accessories to drive somewhere to cool off? Certainly, heading out of town or to a local quarry is nice occasionally, but with your inground pool, you can slip in for a dip anytime.
There will be less grass to cut – A swimming pool space helps eliminate some yard. But, here’s more pleasant news. After mowing or other chores, a swimming pool is there to reward you. A refreshing splash is all it takes to renew the body and refresh the spirit.
You only live once – In the spirit of ‘your kids will grow up before you know it’ you only live once. Now’s the time for mom and dad to enjoy having an in-ground swimming pool, too!
