Having a swimming pool in your backyard is a luxury. It’s really great to be able to relax in your own oasis. There are other benefits to owning a pool as well.
1. Cool Off During Summer
Nothing beats the feeling of crisp water on your skin while the summer heat beats down on you. The summers in Solano County and Napa County can be brutal. Having your very own pool allows you to cool down at any time of the day. You can avoid the use of public pools that often come with very public displays and instead, you can wade around in water that respects your privacy. There’s simply no need to box yourself indoors with AC and Fans, Grab Your Trunks instead!
2. It’s Great for Your Psychological Health
Water has a natural way of instilling a sense of calm. From listening to the soothing wave-like splashing sounds to simply staring into its abyss as you take in a deep breath, having a great big pit of sparkling water nearby will work wonders on your psychological health. If you need a moment to do some deep thinking or if you have to take some time to compose yourself, then a deck chair next to the poolside is a great place to reflect and focus.
3. It Keeps Your Family Happy And Healthy
I think many readers will have at least one good memory that took place in or around a pool. There’s not much that can beat a setting where kids are happily frolicking in the water as adults pass by on their inflatable loungers. A pool is a great way to get the family together where everyone is active, happy, and healthy. Even disgruntled teenagers are more likely to show-face at family gatherings when a pool is in the picture!
4. You Can Use It To Teach Your Kids How To Swim
Swimming pools pose a risk to children who do not know how to swim. So, if you do have a pool on your property, you need to make it a priority to teach your kids both pool safety and swimming techniques. The advantage is that you can do this from the comfort of your own home without spending a good fortune on hiring private instructors to do the leg work for you. Instead, use your pool and swimming lessons as a time to bond with your kids as they learn how to swim while having fun.
5. A Pool Offers Great Entertainment
There’s no denying that friends and family usually flock to the homes of those who have swimming pools. If you love to entertain and have guests over – then get a pool! From cocktail parties to family BBQs and impromptu meet-ups, there’s never a dull moment to be had when surrounded by a gulf of welcoming water.
6. It’s A Stress Reliever
Whether you are pushing laps or floating around on an inflatable lounger that features a delightful headrest, having regular access to a pool can be the ultimate stress reliever. You can exercise your worries away or you can take a subtler approach and close your eyes as you hover over the calming water and unwind.
7. It Adds To The Value Of Your Home
It’s no secret that a property’s value will increase significantly with the addition of a swimming pool. If you intend on eventually selling your home for a hefty profit, then a built-in pool is the way to go. Be aware, however, that the value also depends on the type of pool you want to install, so it’s best to seek advice from an estate agent before you start digging your yard up!
