11 Reasons to be Thankful for Your Swimming Pool

‘Tis the season to reflect on the many things you have to be thankful for. While you’re reflecting and giving thanks this year, don’t forget to also be thankful for your swimming pool!

Here are 11 reasons to be thankful for your swimming pool during the holiday season and all year long:


Reason #1: Your Swimming Pool is the Perfect Place to Cool Off

Texas heat has a way of taking over for more months than you ever imagined. On those steamy summer days, the perfect place to beat the Texas heat is conveniently right in your backyard. You can be thankful for your swimming pool’s ability to cool you off and look forward to 100 degree days.

Reason #2: Your Swimming Pool Provides Fitness for the Whole Family

You don’t need a gym membership because you have a gym in your backyard! Swimming is one of the best exercises you can do for your body because it gets your heart pumping and your muscles working but is also one of the gentlest exercises for your joints.You can be thank

Reason #3: You Have Less Lawn to Mow

Simply put, having a pool means less grass to maintain. Less grass to maintain means more time to spend in your swimming pool. This is definitely something to be thankful for!

Reason #4: Fabulous and Easy Date Night

You never have to wonder “what should we do for date night?” because you get to have the perfect date night any night of the week right in your backyard. What’s more romantic than having your own private lagoon whenever you want it?

Reason #5: Your Swimming Pool is the Perfect Place to Relax

With a swimming pool in your backyard, you always know where to find your zen after a stressful week at work. Calm your nerves in your own private spa by enjoying a quiet swim, reading or tanning poolside or simply having a nice meditative float. And, many people say that nothing helps them sleep better than an evening swim.

Reason #6: Your Kids Will Choose to Stay Home

From the moment you have children in your life, you worry about them. You worry about where they are, what they’re doing, and whether they are safe. But why would your kids want to roam the neighborhood or spend all of their time at your neighbors’ houses when they and their friends always have the most fun in your backyard? It’s so reassuring to know that they will have the time of their lives in the comfort and safety of your own home.

Reason #7: Swimming is a Great Alternative to Watching TV and Playing Video Games

Another concern parents have is that their kids spend a lot of time indoors – more than they did when they were a kid. Your backyard swimming pool is the solution! You don’t have to worry about your kids becoming couch potatoes and video game junkies. Having a pool keeps your kids active and outside enjoying the beautiful weather.

Reason #8: You Can Have Endless Fun Without Leaving Home

You don’t always feel like you need a vacation when you can have a constant vacation in your very own pool! And better yet – no one has to spend hours in a car or a plane asking “are we there yet?” Having a pool is truly like being on a permanent vacation.

Reason #9: Kids Learn to Swim at an Early Age

Having a pool means that your kids learn pool safety and that they become good swimmers at an early age. Whether they end up competing on the swim team or not, this definitely has the added benefit of giving them loads of self confidence.

Reason #10: Pool Parties

Kids and adults alike love a good pool party, and your family gets to host one every weekend! Plus, planning your kids’ birthday parties is always a snap (and inexpensive too!) when you have a swimming pool right in your backyard.

Reason # 11: Your Pool Just Looks Awesome

Let’s face it – pools are beautiful! How much do you enjoy seeing your gorgeous sparkling pool from your breakfast table? There’s nothing like a pool to spruce up your backyard! How can you not be thankful for your swimming pool every time you look at it?
