There are many reasons that a homeowner should consider getting a swimming pool. The main reason many want a pool is for the shear enjoyment that a pool can bring a family. A family will be able to spend countless hours in and around the pool, entertaining not only each other, but family and friends as well. As an added benefit, older children will be more apt to want to bring their friends home and spend time laying out and having fun instead of running around the town. Parents will know that their children are safe at home, having a good time with their friends.
Pools are a great way to add value to the home. A home that is for sale may sell quicker on the market because pools often are an amenity that prospective home buyers are looking for. Homes with pools will often bring in 5 to 10 percent more than a home without a pool.
Not only does a swimming pool add value to the home, but they add a beauty as well . One can work around the pool with landscaping, creating a beautiful oasis. There are many extras that a homeowner can add into the pool landscaping to create this beauty. A deck makes a pool very attractive, and offers additional space for the family to hang out and entertain. One may wish to add a Barbeque Island to this in order to entertain while spending time by the pool.
Many types of water features may be added to a pool to give it extra beauty. A water fountain adds a peaceful element. Kids will enjoy making up games to play under the fountain, while the adults will love the soothing sounds a fountain can offer. A waterfall will add just as much beauty to a pool area as well and makes for a lovely background to a pool setting. Waterfalls add an ambiance to the pool, giving the pool a very elegant feel.
Having your own pool can greatly increase your physical fitness. Pools are a great way to get exercise. It is soothing to the body, and anyone from a young child to a senior citizen can use a pool. Children may enjoy just swimming, getting in the physical activity they need daily.

Adults can do water aerobics, or even have races with other members of the family. Water is also great for those that need low impact exercises or who are suffering from joint pain. And going for a swim after a long day at the office can mean less stress in the life.
