If you haven’t taken the plunge into pool ownership yet, we highly recommend it. There are many benefits to investing in a beautiful in ground pool, but we’ll just stick to our top 10 for now.

#10 – It is all about family.

 A pool becomes a fun and relaxing space to spend quality time with your children and family. It is the perfect place to make lasting memories as you teach your kids to swim, play with them, celebrate birthdays, and just get together for good family fun.

There is no better place to relax than by the pool. The soothing effect of floating on the water is just as good as visiting a fancy spa. Not to mention having the perfect sunshine oasis in your back yard.

#8 – It keeps the doctor away.

There are great health benefits to owning a pool. Water exercise in your pool puts less stress on limbs and joints. It is just as convenient as an at home gym, but far more fun. Water also has a calming effect on people. A little floating can go a long way towards relieving the stresses and tensions from your day.

#7 – Spend more time in the great outdoors.

You may recall our blog describing how spending time in your outdoor living space can make you a happier person. Well, a pool only adds to this atmosphere. Pools provide a motivating reason to turn off those screens and spend a little more time in the wide open space of your own backyard. A pool is a picturesque addition to any landscape.
