1) Family Time

There's no doubt about it, life can can busy. Between work, school, friends, and everything in between, it can be difficult to spend good quality time together as a family. That's where a wimming pool can come in hand. Most pools will have a large capacity that can accomodate most family members and friends. Adding features like loungers, gazebos, bars, fire pits, and more can provide a place for those who arn't in the pool to stay in the conversation and participate in the fun.

2) Swimming Lessons

Eposing children to water at a young age can offer many benefits.  They say that children who grow up in and around water are much more likely to be comfortable around it.  Going to pool parties, swimming for exercise, working around the water, or even experiencing bigger bodies of water won't pose an issue to your kids as they grow into self-sufficient adults.  

A backyard pool provides you with an opportunity to teach children how to swim on a regular basis.  They may develop these skills quicker than those who do not have access to a pool.  Knowing how to swim is important to their health and safety, as accidents in the water can be dangerous and sometimes fatal. 

3) Boost Home Value

A backyard pool can help add to the overall value of your home.  It can transform the backyard into a unique selling feature.  Especially if your backyard is cistomisez to be an outdoor retreat, complete with an inviting and luxurious atmosphere. 

Along with your wimming pool, you could look to include:

  • Water features
  • A fire pit
  • High-quality fencing
  • A modern deck or patio
  • Exterior lighting
  • A gazebo, pergola or cabana

Let's add to this a stunning landscape design can provide the finishing touches.   Thinking walkways, mulch, flower gardens, garden edging, rocks, and more.

4) Health Benefits

Swimming can offer many health benefits:

  • Reduce Stress
  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Improve upon sleep
  • Weight matinenance
  • Reduced risk of injury
  • Strengthens and tones muscles
  • Improved coordination, balance and flexibility

You shoudl always consult with a physician first before treating a pre-existing medican condition on your own.

5) Get Outside

Get off the couch and head to the pool!  Michigan's summer heat can reduce our motivation to be outside, due to the humid conditions.  A home with a pool might just be what you need to get outside and enjoy the summer sun, without feeling fatigued or uncomfortable due to extreme temperatures.

6) Social Life

Did someone say pool party?  We, it does not always have to be a party, but a pool sure can boost your social life.  Regardless if your inviting a friend or two over for a night of catching up and relaxation, or you're hosing the next family reunion, your backyard retreat can offer the perfect place to host.

7) Weight Maintenance

Weight maintenance was mentioned within health benefits above, but it's so important that we thought it deserved its own section.  Regardless if you're looking to start living a healthy lifestyle and lose weight or are just looking to maintain your current physical activity - a pool can help.

The buoyancy of the wanter can help life up to 90% if your body weight from your muscles and joints, while reducing the impact that added pressure can have on sore muscles and joints.  Combined with the resistance the water provides, you can enjoy a low-impact and comfortable water workout without leaving your own property.

Here are some favorite swimming pool exercises:

  • Jumping jacks
  • Swimming laps
  • Flutter kicks
  • Squats
  • Lunges
  • Reverse crucnhes
  • Torso twists
  • Calf raises

And these are just the beginning!  You could also encorporate water aerobics and yoga into your routine!

8) Ditch the Electronics

Technology seems to follow us everywhere we go. Kids can't put down their tablets and mobile devices...while adults seem to be glued to the computer screen and TV after a long day at the office.  When in the pool, the electronics get left behind.  Use the time spent in the pool to get away from your electronics, if only for 30 minutes!

Many folks are so busy that having something that they do not use does not make sense.  This can be said for a motor home, boat, lake house, etc.  If you are rarely at home, then a swimming pool is probably not for you.

The upkeep of a swimming pool requires time, chemicals, and pool care knowledge.

If you don't take care of your pool, health and safety issues can arise.  Proper chemical use is required to keep water PH levels accurate.  Improper use can lead to swimmers getting ill, or algae and other bacteria forming in the pool.  Swimming pools can be a beauitul addition to your home.  With proper knowledge amd research, your home can benefit from a pool.  Do your homework on the front end to find out if owning a swimming pool home is right for you and your family.


There are several costs of owning a swimming pool.  Monthly chemical and utility costs (electric and water) are approximately $100-150 for the average-sized residential pool.

The opening and closing of a pool can be costly, if contracted, but it does save you time and work.
