An in-ground pool with attached patio and sunbathing area turns your backyard into a personal vacation resort. However, this type of outdoor feature offers a number of benefits beyond simple relaxation. Here’s what you should know to decide if a swimming pool is right for you.
4 Advantages of an Above-Ground or In-Ground Pool
1. Keeps the Kids Busy
During the summer when kids are out of school, they need activities to keep them entertained and out from underfoot. A swimming pool lures them outdoors and keeps them busy. It provides sun, fresh air, and exercise, and keeps them from planting themselves in front of the television all day.
2. Ideal for Entertaining
An in-ground pool and patio area make an ideal entertainment space. Get to know your neighbors and enrich your relationships with friends and family. Throw an outdoor party or host a barbecue with a bit of water polo to whet your guests' appetites.
3. Gives You a Place to Swim
Swimming is fantastic exercise. It is very low-impact, so it's perfect for seniors with bone or joint issues. It utilizes nearly every muscle in the body. It builds endurance, improves the cardiovascular system, and strengthens the muscles and heart. Best of all, it's fun, so it's an exercise you'll look forward to.
4. Unbeatable on a Hot Day
On those long, hot, summer days, nothing is as refreshing as a dip in the pool. After a hard day at work, you can trade your sticky clothes for a swimsuit and stay cool without having to hide inside the house.
