Thinking About Getting a Pool? Here are 4 Reasons Why You Should

People love swimming, especially during Summer Olympics season.

There are approximately 10.6 million swimming pools in the United States. Growing up, maybe you were the lucky kid in the neighborhood that actually had a pool so you had all your friends over. Or maybe you and the rest of your pals frequented one of your other friend’s pool. Either way, you and your friends got together by the pool for some of the best times ever.

Those times don’t just go away when you’re an adult, or they don’t have to. They are still there, you just have to go out and get them. Having custom pool installers work their magic on your property can give you that pool-related nostalgia you’ve been searching for ever since you grew up.

Here are a few reasons you should have custom pool installers build a custom pool on your property.

Become an Olympic Swimmer

Wholly 100% of Olympic swimmers swam in a pool at one point in their lives. You could be the next one, and the 2020 Summer Olympics are only four short years away (so you better get to work). If it’s too late for you, your kids could discover a knack for water-based racing sports.

Okay, maybe you won’t be the next Olympic swimmer. But, swimming is the fourth most popular sport in the United States for a reason.

Excellent Workout

Going to the gym can often seem like you have to first transform into another (more productive) person, drive a million miles to another planet, and then devote all your remaining energy just to open the front door of the gym. It’s too hard. Going into your nice pool, however, is much more doable.

Conveniently located in your backyard, you will be able to get a great workout and stay on your property at the same time. Swimming vigorously for one hour can actually burn up to 650 calories, so you’ll be having fun and getting in great shape simultaneously.


Once you stop your Olympic training and your vigorous swim sessions, you might want to stop and relax in your pool before you pass out. Having custom pools on your property will allow you to relax in the comfort of your own yard and just float across the water, without a care in the world, whenever you want.

Pool Party!

The best part about having a pool in your adult life is an excuse to host more outdoor parties where you and your guests admire the new pool. After a few hours of watching the water do nothing, someone will eventually jump in and the fun will really start. The outdoor entertainment industry is no joke, and as of 2015, after a 4% increase in revenue, it’s now a $7 billion industry.
