10 Reasons why owning a pool is better than going to the beach

As fun as a day out at the lake can be, more often than not it can come with it’s own set of problems and hazards that can sometimes take the fun out of a nice, family outing. But don’t worry, we’ve got the answer and we’ve put together a list to show you why it’s so much better to own a pool, so here’s why…

1) You never get sand in your bikini.

Chafing, rashes and assorted irritations that come along with getting sand wedged inside a wet bikini are things of the past when you own your own pool.

2) You never have to drive to get there.

No need to worry about traffic, gas or getting the kids strapped in for a car trip to the lake when you have a pool right in your own backyard.

3) You don’t get sand in your sandwiches.

Cucumber, lettuce, tomato and SAND are just not a very tasty combination and no matter how you package them, the sand always seems to find its way inside – but with the comfort of your kitchen right there with you, this is no longer an issue!

4) You can get cool in less time than it takes to pack the car.

Wake up and it’s another scorching hot day? No worries, just run outside (pajamas included) and dive straight into your pool, instantly cool down and relax and laugh at the rest of the people sweating it out in their cars on the way to the lake.

5) You can swim day or night.

At home on a Friday night and feeling like taking a swim? No worries, open the door and walk out into your backyard… there you are. No need to worry about dangerous night swimming at the lake when you can dive straight into your personal oasis.

6) You don’t have to worry about sharks, stingrays or seaweed.

Slimy seaweed and slick rocks are just something you don’t need to think about when you own a pool – except maybe a few stray leaves!

7) You always know where the kids are.

It’s hard to keep track of a bunch of excited kids at the lake, playing around in the waves, trying not to lose them in the crowd of people; but with your own pool, you can sit back, relax with a book and know that your kids are playing safe.

8) You don’t have to go on vacation to get there.

No need to fill out that vacation form, apply for leave and count the hours you have saved to get your own swimming holiday. Each day you come home from work, just jump straight in and let the worries of the day wash away.

9) You won’t get swept out to sea.

Pools are much more forgiving than the lake, and you can even get swim jet systems to simulate resistance like you’d find in the lake and never have to worry about getting swept away.

10) You can swim for miles and still be in the comfort of your own home.

Enjoy uninterrupted miles and miles of swimming back and forth without having to look out for other swimmers, beachgoers and skiers when you own your own pool, just zone out and swim to your hearts content!
