Swimming pools used to be a luxury feature in homes. These days, however we believe it’s a great addition if you have the room for it. Swimming is also considered as one of the most popular sports in Australia. Now is the perfect time to build one.
Pretty apprehensive? That’s perfectly understandable.
Below are the reasons why you should seriously consider having a backyard swimming pool.
Health and FitnessThere is no need for you to go to the gym and spend money on memberships. You have your own workout “station” within your property and considering we still have the threat of new variants of the Covid19 virus in our midst, having access to public spaces is still not advisable. Having your own pool is safer as you are the only one who has access to it.
Swimming is also a very effective body workout. It keeps our heart rate up, builds endurance, muscle strength, and overall cardiovascular fitness, and provides a full body workout as all your muscles are being used when you swim.
It also helps improve your coordination, posture, balance, and flexibility, and also helps in low-impact therapy for some conditions and injuries. Swimming also aids in rehabilitation and recovery through aqua therapy and is very helpful in core workout.
Quality time with loved onesQuality time with your family and friends usually means going out for a meal or planning a trip. But because of the new normal, we have to adjust and make sure to still enjoy quality time together in creative ways.
Having your own swimming pool will make way for different kinds of bonding sessions with your loved ones. Not only does it offer privacy and convenience, it also takes the pressure off of you to connect with your guests one-on-one, as they can enjoy their time in the pool and mingle with each other while you do your host duties. The pool is also kid-friendly so the children can play while the adults have a good time without taking their eyes out on their babies.
Saves moneyWhile definitely worth every money spent, family holidays and party nights with friends cost an arm and a leg which limits these experiences to only one or two a year.
Having your own pool can help you get more time spent with the people you care about without the experience of breaking the bank. The only thing you have to worry about is the food and drinks, and usually, guests offer to bring something since you’re already hosting the event at your place. Your own pool can also be a part of your goal of building assets.
Increase property value
More and more people prefer to have a pool for the reasons mentioned above so should you decide to sell your property, it can add higher prices because of the swimming pool. If you have more spaces, you can also add patio extensions.

Whether it’s for fitness and health or just chill and relaxation, your swimming pool is your best friend. You can lounge by the pool while enjoying natural sunlight, swim leisurely, or stargaze at night while sitting submerged in the pool as you let your thoughts wander. It helps your mental health to spend a quiet time alone with just yourself and your thoughts.
Of course, there are a lot of things to consider before you build a backyard swimming pool and it will take time and money that you need to save up for. But we believe it will be a sound investment not only on a financial level but also in terms of developing your connections with your family and friends. Having an added space where you can spend time together is always a good thing.
