Anybody who lives in a climate that is pretty temperate year round will not understand the extreme nature of any other environment. Any country close to the equator usually suffers from the hottest and most humid of weather, but many other places suffer from weather that is just as stuffy and unbearable, even in places that are not all that close to the middle of the world.
When you’ve lived in an environment that gets stifling hot in the summer, or is pretty much hot all year round, you really understand the value of having a watering hole to cool off in. Unfortunately for so many around the world, the places that provide relief from the sweltering heat don’t look like clean pristine lakes and rivers you find in the Northwest United States. They’re rivers that are dirt brown, polluted past the point of drinkability, but still get used, nonetheless because there is no other option.
Thankfully, many in the world don’t have to have this problem. There might not be any lakes around to cool off in, but who needs one when you’ve got a swimming pool? Here are 4 benefits of having a swimming pool at home:
Swimming pools are a lot of fun, but if you’ve ever gone to the YMCA or another center where there are hundreds of bodies crammed into the chlorinated waters, you get a little concerned for your safety, the sanity of the environment, and you get a bit peeved at all the legs kicking you and the elbows flying every which way.
When you have your own pool, it’s all yours. You can choose how many people are in the pool at one time. There’s no fighting for laps, there’s no cross-contamination of foreign bodies, and you could be naked and nobody could say a thing.
It’s Instantly Refreshing
If you live in a city where the traffic makes it impossible to get anywhere in under 20 minutes, then the value of having your own pool just went up another notch. It’s summer, the weather’s hot, the kids want to go swimming…but the last thing you want to do is pack everyone in the car and pay to swim in a crowded pool somewhere. When you have your own pool in your backyard or wherever, it’s instant, refreshing payoff. There are no waits. If you want in, you’re in. Just like that.
You Get to Throw Cool Parties
If privacy and convenience weren’t enough of a reason to have a pool, then the fact that you’ll have the perfect place to throw amazing house parties is. There is nothing better than a pool party. Don’t be scared away by the construction process. Let the professionals take care of the details, let them build you your dream pool, and let the good times roll.
