Why You Need An In Ground Pool
You’ve been thinking about it for years now; to get a pool or not to get a pool? That has been the question. As much as your kids have begged for one, and as much as your spouse has even thrown hints at you, you’ve still wavered. There are many benefits of having your own in ground pool and now is the time to begin construction if you want to take advantage of them.
Your pool is your private getaway without having to book a hotel and travel hundreds of miles on a crowded interstate. Forget the expensive vacation this year and focus on the fun things that your town has to offer! There’s so much to do in Houston that people travel from across the country to visit; explore some of the places you’ve never seen. Take in an Astros game or visit the Downtown Aquarium. With your own in ground pool waiting for you at home, you can swim when you want and feel like you’re far away from it all for a lot less money and time. Best of all, you don’t have to share the pool with strangers!
Limiting Bodily Fluids
Speaking of sharing the pool with strangers, when you book a hotel or condo, you often have to swim with a lot of people. Lots of people in a pool means lots of people shedding their dead skin cells, sweating, releasing body oils, and (you guessed it) using the pool as a toilet. Some surveys say that 1 in every 5 adults admit to peeing in the pool; you have to wonder how many do it without telling? Most people think that chlorine kills everything but the truth is: there are some things that can live for hours, even days, if brought into the pool. Plus, when urine and chlorine mix together, they produce a toxic chemical that can be damaging to the lungs. At least with your own pool, you know who’s in there with you.
There are very few cardio workouts that give you the benefits that swimming does. It’s fun, it burns tons of calories, and it builds lean muscle. You can work out in your own in ground pool every day without travelling to the gym, fighting traffic and fellow gym-goers. You can do it first thing in the morning or later in the evening. You can get the whole family involved and work together towards being healthier. Swimming is a blast and the benefits to your health are worth it.
