I know I’m biased, but considering all the feedback I get from my Temecula Valley Custom Pool Clients saying, “Best decision I ever made!” or “I’m so happy we did it!”, my bias on this topic is fairly well justified. There really are a ton of advantages to having a pool in your backyard. Here’s why I think it makes sense:
- EVERY DAY IS A VACATION DAY!
Having your very own backyard paradise is something that never gets old. After a long day at work or a crazy week there’s nothing more refreshing or relaxing than going home, putting your suit on and heading into your OWN BACKYARD OASIS! It’s like a permanent vacation. Who doesn’t like vacations?
- CREATE MEMORIES
One of the best places to create memories is a backyard pool. In fact, what better way to spend time with your family, friends, and neighbors than playing games, laughing, or just relaxing in your pool.
- 3. YOUR HOUSE BECOMES THE FUN HOUSE
Growing up my mom always wanted other kids to come to our house rather than us going to their house. The best way to get your younger kids, teenagers, an/or young adults to flock to your house is to have a pool. Your house automatically becomes, “The Fun House” (It’s kinda like being the “Cool” Mom or the “Cool” Dad!)
- 4. TEACH OTHERS TO SWIM
Best place to teach people who are afraid of the water (young or old) how to swim is in a private swimming pool where they can feel more comfortable and secure.
- CHILDREN LEARN TO SWIM EARLIER
Children naturally love water and what you’ll find by having your own swimming pool is your children will become not only good swimmers, but excellent swimmers. You’ll essentially create little fish. Statistically, children who grow up with swimming pools tend to be better swimmers because of the frequency in which they use their pools.
- LEARN BASIC SNORKELING AND EVEN SCUBA SKILLS
One of my favorite places to snorkel is in Hawaii and the Caribbean. When my kids were little however there is nothing worse than trying to give them a crash course on snorkeling while we are at this dream destination. It’s very easy to teach them the basic skills of snorkeling right in your own pool. One of my kids even used our family pool to get his scuba certification. It’s been multipurpose!
One of the best things about having a pool is the low impact exercise swimming laps in the pool can provide you. No need to get in the car and travel to the gym, the track or the local community pool when you have something in your own backyard. One of the best exercises for people as they age is swimming and water aerobics because of the low to no impact on the body.
- INCREASE HOME’S VALUE
In most areas like Temecula, Murrieta, Menifee, and Wildomar where temperatures are typically in and around 80 degrees pools tend to add a lot of value to your home. Many studies show that a pool can increase your home by as much as 20% in a competitive market. In fact, a pool can often be the deciding factor for the family looking to buy a home and will ONLY consider a home with a pool.
- BEAT THE HEAT
Owning a pool in Temecula, Murrieta, Menifee, or Wildomar during the summer months is not only a luxury it’s almost a necessity. There’s no better way to beat the summer heat than relaxing and cooling off in the family pool on a day that reaches 95-100 degrees!
- A SMART INVESTMENT
A swimming pool in Temecula, Murrieta, Menifee, or Wildomar is probably a smarter investment than you might realize. In fact, in the long run, it’s almost cheaper to own a swimming pool in the Temecula Valley than taking a week long family vacation every year. At Temecula Valley Custom Pools, we want your pool to be a lifelong investment in fun!
