Five Reasons We Love Swimming Pools

In preparation for this year’s National Swimming Pool Day, we have compiled a list of our top five reasons why we love swimming pools.

There are so many reasons to love your swimming pool, these are just a few of our favorites!

1. Presents a Fun Fitness Opportunity for the Family 

Swimming in the pool is a great way to stay fit, and a fun way to exercise as a family! It can be especially motivating to exercise when you can do it from the comfort of your home, and we think this is a huge plus to having a swimming pool in your backyard.

The pool is also an excellent way to help your kids stay healthy and fit over the summer. Often your kids may end up spending two to five hours in the pool on a summer day, or sometimes even longer, which translates into a two to five hour workout they didn’t even know they were doing!

2. Helps Encourage Your Kids to Swim Earlier in Life father holding his toddler daughter up in the air in the pool

Another reason we love swimming pools is because they encourage your children to swim at an earlier age. The earlier your children become comfortable with swimming, the earlier they will understand the importance of water safety around both pools and natural bodies of water.

Having a swimming pool at home allows you to teach your children how to swim, on your own time, and at your own pace. This creates a personalized learning environment for your children, encouraging them to learn at their own pace, starting at an earlier age.

3. Serves as a Great Environment for Hosting Summer Gatherings

Swimming pools provide a great environment for summer gatherings of any kind. Nothing beats inviting a couple friends over for a poolside afternoon!

Hosting summer gatherings by the pool can be a great way to add a twist to an otherwise traditional summer house party. Encourage your friends and family to bring their bathing suits and hang out by the pool!

4. Creates an Outdoor Resort Right at Home 

We also love swimming pools because they encourage us to rest and relax! There is something about a quiet day by the pool that almost feels like a day at a tropical resort.

Give yourself the gift of relaxation and spend some of your free time lounging by the pool alone. This might be the vacation you’ve been waiting for, the only difference is you’re right in your own backyard!

5. Encourages Togetherness and Family Time Without Distractions

Finally, we love swimming pools because they encourage uninterrupted togetherness. The pool is fun for the whole family, and it helps take us away from other things that may be distracting us from each other!

Let’s be honest, who can deny a cool-off in the pool on a hot summer day? Add a backyard swimming pool to the equation and you have the perfect recipe for some uninterrupted, at-home family fun.
