If you have ever thought about installing a pool in your backyard, you’ve probably wondered whether the benefits of having one will outweigh the costs of construction and maintenance. While there are many factors that may impact this decision, including your family’s lifestyle and financial situation, having your own pool offers multiple compelling benefits. Here are four of the top reasons to install a swimming pool in your backyard:
- Having your own pool provides endless opportunities for family fun and time with friends. Often, life gets busy and it can be difficult to find the time to bring together friends and family for fun and relaxation. Having a pool makes it easier to do so by creating a convenient gathering spot in your own backyard.
- Pools encourage exercise and can offer numerous health benefits. Swimming is a full body workout that can help people of all ages stay fit and healthy. Since water provides far more resistance than air, swimming is a powerful way to improve strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness—while minimizing the risk of injury by supporting your muscles and joints. In addition to the physical health benefits, swimming can help improve mental health by reducing stress and promoting better quality sleep.
- A pool can add beauty to any backyard. With virtually limitless design options for the pool and the patio areas surrounding it, building a pool can enhance the style of your property and transform your backyard into your own personal oasis.
- A pool can boost your home’s value. Due to their many benefits, pools can improve resale value when the time eventually comes to sell your home. According to real estate experts, a 14×28-foot inground concrete (gunite) pool will potentially add 5-8% to the value of your home.
These are just a few of the ways in which a backyard swimming pool can enhance your home and lifestyle. With over 50 years of experience designing, building, and maintaining custom gunite pools, the experts at Aqua Pool can help guide you through the process of adding a pool to your property.
