People who love swimming or just splashing around in the water may take themselves and their loved ones to a public pool. If you’ve been thinking about getting your own pool, however, don’t hesitate. Hiring a high-quality swimming pools builder is an excellent long-term investment that will also spare you the problems of relying on a communal swimming pool.
Many public pools either have too little chlorine and low pH levels, resulting in a higher risk of infection for swimmers, or too much chlorine, which can cause skin rashes and other health problems. 2008 data from the CDC reported the closure of 1 out of every 8 pools following inspections that revealed unsanitary water and other safety violations; many public whirlpools and hottubs also violate health and safety codes. Although local inspectors try to stay on top of public pools, they can’t always get to all of them on time, and the advice they give for staying clean in public pools, such as not allowing water into your mouth, is more difficult for children to follow.
With your own high-quality pool, you can enjoy money-saving, eco-friendly sanitation solutions that don’t even need to rely on chlorine and can operate in automated fashion, leaving you more time to relax and actually enjoy your pool.
2) Risk of injury
At a public pool, you’re at a greater risk of being injured by other people, especially when the pool gets overcrowded. Furthermore, some pools that aren’t up to code may have dangerous features such as pool vents with excessive suction.
You can use a communal pool only during specified days and hours; off-season, the pools may be closed for longer periods of time or shut down entirely. Also, depending on how close you live to the pool, getting there may require a long drive.
With your own pool, however, all you have to do is step out into your backyard and enjoy yourself whenever you want. If swimming is part of your exercise program, you’ll also have an easier time sticking to it if you have your own pool.
Sharing a pool with many other people means you have less privacy for yourself, your family and your friends. Often, when you use on-site changing rooms or showers, you also have minimal privacy.
One of the biggest perks to having your own pool is being able to design it any way you like. With creative, expert pool builders helping you realize your vision, you can have your very own dream poolscape, with any number of beautiful features. And if you choose builders who are environmentally friendly, they’ll come up with pool designs that are both safer for the planet and also save you money.
