PROS: Swimming pools are a great way to get exercise for adults and children. The added benefit of no impact exercising on the body is a plus over impact filled activities. Kids and adults alike, enjoy playing and relaxing around a pool. Summer time pool parties or a late night swim is always enjoyable when you own your own pool.

CONS: Swimming pools can be dangerous around children and those who don’t know how to swim.  If you choose to own a swimming pool you should have the proper safety fencing, and door locks installed. The homeowner can be held responsible for injuries caused in their pool by neighbors, or friends.

“My wife and I have a pool in our backyard with a spa attached. I love it. Swimming in the evenings is a great way to relax, and the spa is great for my back. Because it is heated, we can open it in early spring and keep it open well into the fall.” – Whit Harvey
