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.
