Installing a pool in your backyard is a big commitment and you might be wondering if day trips to the beach would be a better way to enjoy the water.
But if you want to have a place to swim and spend time by the water, there are plenty of reasons why a pool in your backyard is better than going to the beach.
Here are a five reasons why having a pool in your backyard is better than going to the beach…
Pools are cleaner
Natural debris and pollution are just some of the contaminants in the ocean and they might even make you sick. You can’t control the cleanliness of the ocean and the nearby beach, but you can control the cleanliness of your pool.
With a pool, you can control the input of chemicals and cleaning schedule to ensure that your pool is safe and sanitary.
Your pool should be regularly cleaned and maintained to ensure that the water is clean and safe for swimming.
Pools are safer
Swimming in the ocean can be fun, but you might also come face-to-face with potential dangers like sharks, jellyfish, and riptides. By swimming in your pool, you can avoid these dangers and have a much safer experience.
Pools are free of ocean hazards, and offer a relatively safe, enjoyable, and contained place to swim.
In addition, pools are typically surrounded by a fence which can help to prevent young children from gaining access to the water without supervision.
Pools are more convenient
No one likes to fight with traffic, crowds, parking, and long lines for services. When you have your own pool, you can avoid all of these hassles and simply enjoy your time in the water.
With a backyard pool, you just walk outside anytime you feel like it, and enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that you’re never too far away from all of your creature comforts.
Since your pool is also available whenever you want to use it – there’s no need to check the tide schedule or worry about the waves.
Pools are private
Noisy crowds of people on the beach don’t really make for a relaxing afternoon. Thankfully, you don’t have to deal with that when you have your own pool.
Pools offer a level of privacy and seclusion that you can’t find at the beach. Plus, since you’re the only one with the key to your pool, you can be sure that only the people you want in your pool will be able to enjoy it.
When you have your own pool, you can invite over as many or as few people as you want and enjoy a quiet, intimate setting. Your backyard can be your private oasis where you’re free to swim, relax and enjoy some quality time with family and friends.
Pools are controllable
Ocean water in the Northeast can be quite cold for most of the year, which means it’s only possible to swim during the warm summer. With a heated backyard pool however, you can enjoy swimming all year round if you choose.
You can also control the depth of your pool, which is perfect if you have young children who are still learning to swim.
Pools offer many benefits that you can’t find at the beach. From greater cleanliness and safety to more convenience and privacy, pools provide a great way to enjoy the water without having to leave home.
