Top Five Reasons to Install a Pool in Your Backyard

Name a better use for a summer day than lounging in the sun, connecting with friends, and enjoying a delicious meal fresh off the grill all while the kids swim with their friends. If you install a pool in your backyard, you can have all these things and more!  Backyard pools can have endless customizations to fit your home perfectly. There’s a reason the pool is the ideal spot for a summer retreat. Why not bring all that fun to your home. Still on the fence? Check out these 5 reasons to install a pool in your backyard.

Say "goodbye!" to public pools

Public pools – need I say more? They’re unsanitary, loud, and require a lot of packing and planning before you can even leave the house. If you install a pool in your backyard, it brings all the fun (and none of the dirt) to your backyard. You don’t have to schlep yourself and your kids in and out of a parking lot. No more waiting for people to finish using the pool either (because you’ll be the only ones using it). And you won’t be worried about making a mess or breaking equipment.

Having a pool at home also gives your kids a great way to spend quality time in the sun while you keep a close eye. Especially for younger kids, having your own pool takes the stress of constantly being on high alert at the public pool away. You’ll be able to focus on them while enjoying some sunshine yourself.

Your very own entertainment space

Be the talk of the block this summer by hosting exciting get togethers at your new pool! The perfect outdoor space takes at home parties and barbecues to the next level.  What better excuse to connect with your friends and loved ones than a backyard get together. While kids entertain themselves in the water you can impress your guests with all the new amenities your pool has to offer. From grilling to game night, the entertaining possibilities are endless with the right pool setup.

A fantastic workout right in your backyard

Swimming is a great way to incorporate high quality, low impact exercise into your routine. It helps burn calories, improve endurance, and strengthen muscles without putting unneeded stress on your body or joints. Finding a gym with a pool can prove impossible. Finding the time and energy to go is an even bigger feat. But taking the plunge to install a pool in your backyard means you always have a way to get some movement in without the stress and time wasted at the gym.

If the gym is your happy place, then swimming is great for post-workout recovery.  Swimming serves as an excellent cool down for strenuous workouts like running, cycling, and strength training. Regardless of swimming style, a cool down can help flush out any lactic acid in your muscles, improve recovery, and increase flexibility..

The perfect multipurpose space

All day fun is just a few steps away when you have your own backyard pool. You can choose from a wide variety of features to customize your pool exactly to your liking.  That means there’s always something to look forward to. Are you looking to master your grill technique? Outdoor grill stations are the perfect way to hone your skills. Want to enjoy a lovely drink outdoors? A hot tub is a fantastic edition to up the relaxation factor.

If you live in a snowier climate, the fun doesn’t have to end when the leaves start to fall. Hot tubs, fire pits and outdoor kitchens by your backyard pool can be enjoyed year round, providing the perfect spot for you to huddle up with some cocoa and keep warm while moderating snow ball fights and sledding races.
