After the summer of 2020, whereby every single one of us was confined to our homes and – if we were lucky – our gardens, there has been a considerable upsurge in the sale of outdoor swimming pools, both in above-ground structures and bespoke, luxury built-in pools.
If you are one of the many people who are considering investing in a heated, outdoor pool, here are three ways in which you could benefit, and which may persuade you to ‘splash the cash’.
As a much more affordable alternative to taking your children to pricey and relatively speedy swimming lessons – and exposing them to tens of other children (and their parents), which is especially concerning during the current times – a swimming pool, however modest or extravagant, is a perfect, entertaining and truly exciting practical alternative. Naturally, the initial outlay is one lump sum, depending on your budget and personal preferences, but then your children (or even yourself or your partner) can learn how to swim in the comfort, security, safety and privacy of your own home.
A shallow end can be relatively easily built into your custom-made pool and safety is the number-one priority, both in terms of the pool itself and the safety features within it.
Increased Property Value
The amount that the installation of a heated pool adds to the value of your home is dependent on several essential factors and, providing each one of these is considered, your overall property value is likely to significantly increase.
There are several key factors that can influence the value that an in-ground or above-ground swimming pool will add to your property, including the size of the pool, the quality of both the instillation and the equipment, whether or not there is a swimming pool heater and the expense output of the swimming pool on a monthly basis.
Self-Care and Relaxation
Not only are there copious and exceedingly obvious benefits to the installation of a heated pool on your property in terms of entertainment and value, but swimming pools have also in general been proven to have a positive effect on both a person’s mental and physical health.
Warm water greatly helps a person’s circulatory system due to the significant improvement of blood flow throughout the body. By relaxing the body and the mind, swimming in warm water is particularly effective in easing away the troubles and stresses of the day; or, conversely, in helping you to start the day refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed. Swimming has been long-since regarded as an excellent self-care and relaxation activity and the installation of your very own, private and personal pool at home, however modest, can only improve not only your physical health, but your mental wellbeing in general.
So why not ‘take the plunge’ and treat yourself and your family to a heated, above-ground swimming pool. You certainly won’t regret it, and you will also earn significant brownie points from your family and friends at the same time.
