Dallas Pool Builders Explain the Benefits of Owning a Pool in Texas

Your property in the big DFW metroplex deserves to have a big swimming pool in the backyard. After all, there’s nothing quite like having your own personal oasis to relax in when the Texas summer heat hits.

Have you been noticing lately that your home is missing something? That you need to add another element to it in order to take it from “proper residence” to “party central”?

Adding a pool might be the best investment that you’ll ever make to your house. Both for your property value as well as elevating your lifestyle. It creates an entirely different atmosphere.

Here are several benefits to building a pool on your property based on what Dallas pool builders say are the biggest perks of a backyard renovation.

A Place to Cool Off

This first point might be a bit obvious, but it bears worth repeating because it’s such a tremendous perk to have at your house especially in Texas.

Living in Texas is beautiful, but it’s hot most of the year. Because of that, you need a place that you can cool down and unwind. Enjoy the hot spring and summer months for what they really are: a beautiful time of year.

Think about it this way — you work your tail off all day. Whether it’s walking from meeting to meeting in that heavy suit, taking care of the ranch all day, or shepherding your family from place to place you’ll work harder knowing that your pool is waiting for you at the end of the day.

Helps You Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, not only is having a pool vital to having fun and cooling off, but it’s also a tremendous asset to your health.

You work hard to keep your body in tip-top physical condition by maintaining a healthy diet and working out. However, your body needs a different type of workout from time to time to keep it on its toes.

What better way to do that than swimming laps in your pool? In fact, swimming has been proven to have several health benefits.

Plus, there are numerous ways you can incorporate your pool into your health and fitness routine. Items such as water dumbbells, resistance bands, aqua jogging belts, are all tremendous for water aerobics.

If you’re wanting more options for your summer and winter fitness, you’ll have them, thanks to your pool.

Brings the Family Together

If you’re a parent, you know how difficult it is to find an activity that you, your spouse, and your kids are equally as excited about. 

Having a pool in your backyard means fun for the entire family. Everyone will always look forward to Saturdays and Sundays that they can swim and play. Your kids will be begging you to take a swim every night of the week.

More importantly, in a time where people are becoming more and more glued to indoor devices such as video games, TV, etc. you and your family need a time to leave those at the door and spend one on one time together.

Some of your most favorite memories will be made in your pool… and that’s a benefit that you can’t afford to overlook!

Year-Round Usage

One of the biggest benefits of living in the south is that it’s the place you can justify purchasing a pool the most. That’s because Texas weather is always in condition to hang out around the pool.

While the water might be too cold to jump in, you and your family/friends can have awesome pool parties and get-togethers year-round.

You’ll receive a tremendous return on your investment because it will be used nearly year round. Even better, you don’t have to worry about ever closing down your pool and reopening it for the summer (which is a huge pain).

Once you get into a rhythm of balancing the chlorine levels and maintaining the cleanliness of the pool, it will become like second nature to you.

Adds to Your Home’s Value

Adding a pool to your backyard is no different than the renovations you made to your kitchen. It’s an investment that raises the value of your home.

While that does depend on the type of pool that you’re looking to install, an experienced swimming pool builder can help guide you and make recommendations that can add value to your property. 

Helps You Shave Expenses

Don’t get it twisted; installing, owning, and maintaining a pool certainly isn’t cheap. But like anything else, once you figure out the budget for such expenses, it becomes natural.

However, what most people don’t consider is how much money a pool can save you on certain expenses. 

First of all, you can drop the membership to your local pool or YMCA. Then you’ll be saving on hefty entertainment purchases each month to keep the kids occupied. They’d much rather stay at home to swim than go out to watch a movie.

You’ll also save on driving to and from for family get-togethers. Now that everyone wants access to your pool, you can use it as an excuse to never have to load the family into a vehicle and haul them across the metroplex or state.
