Having a swimming pool put into your garden is one of the best investments you can make in your family’s health and happiness. Not only will it bring you many hours of fun and relaxation, but it will also provide a great way to exercise, entertain your friends and generally enjoy a higher quality of life. As an added bonus, having a pool that has been properly built and maintained will even add to the value of your property.
1. Swimming is a GREAT form of exercise
Every member of your family, from the children to their grandparents, can reap the health benefits of your swimming pool. For the kids, it’s a fun way to step away from the Xbox or the TV and cool down in the hot summer months. Children must always be supervised in the water, but it’s a great way for a child who isn’t sporty to spend some time outside and get active. For the older members of your family, swimming is arguably the best form of exercise they can do. Thanks to the water holding the weight of one’s body, swimming places no strain on the knees and ankles. This means none of the aches and pains associated with going for a walk or run to get that much-needed exercise.
2. Transform part of your garden into an entertainment area
Let’s face it – going out to a restaurant every time you want to have a meal with your friends gets expensive. If you have small children, you face the added challenge of finding any restaurant other than Spur that has the facilities to keep them entertained. Now picture this – the kids are splashing in the pool on a balmy summer’s night while you and your friends sit on the deck adjacent to the pool, sipping a glass of wine while meat sizzles on the braai. What could be better?
3. Maintaining your pool is a LOT less tedious than you think
A lot of people are put off the idea of having a pool in their garden because of the work that they think will be involved in maintaining it. “I’ll spend my weekends cleaning out the leaf trap, backwashing filters and checking chemical balances,” you may think. If you live in Umhlanga, Durban North or the Berea, there’s good news for you. Blupool’s affordable pool maintenance service can take care of all that, leaving you with a sparkling oasis to jump into at the end of a long day.
