For many homeowners, a backyard swimming pool might seem like an extravagant expense, but that’s a myth. Perhaps the closest thing many people have to a real swimming pool is an inflatable pool for kids and a sprinkler. It’s almost not reason enough to change into a swimsuit. But a new swimming pool in your own backyard is more realistic than you might think.
Surprisingly, the benefits of having a new pool at home — not counting the fun of pool parties — mean that having a swimming pool at home, in time, pays for itself. Think of the purchase of a new swimming pool like an investment in your health, happiness, and the beauty of your home.
Consider for a moment the health benefits of regular swimming. It’s a low-impact form of exercise that many people are able to do easily, even when jogging or indoor calisthenics require too much exertion. Access to a swimming pool is the determining factor for many people to join a gym.
Stress is a killer. Many people use a repetitious form of physical activity, like swimming, that requires full attention and forces one into a state of solitude as a form of relaxation that is so effective it borders on meditation. Regular habits that force one to relax and reduce stress in daily life are correlated with longevity and a more positive outlook on life.

Especially if you live in an area that gets hot during the mid-summer months, a new swimming pool in your backyard can save money on air conditioning. If you’re too hot and sweaty, rather than bake in the heat or crank up the air conditioning to full, consider going for a swim. Especially with a pool awning to keep the water shady and cool, you’ll find your electricity bill will be lower than when you relied solely on air conditioning to keep you cooled off.
