There are many benefits of having a swimming pool as a part of your backyard oasis, but here are five of our favorites:

1. Swimming can help improve health

Promoting a healthy lifestyle is important, especially if you have children. There are proven health advantages of swimming, which include cardiovascular benefits, muscle strengthening and encouraging a good night’s sleep.

2. A pool can add value to your home

Adding a pool can increase your home’s market price, especially if it comes with all the bells and whistles. Even if you are not planning on selling, having more valuable property helps add to the feeling of stability.

3. A pool improves your backyard

Pools make incredible additions to homes and tend to add a touch of class to a lush outdoor area. Wooden decks and paved pathways also make great additions and complement the visual appeal of your pool.

4. A pool adds a relaxing dimension to your home

Pools are quiet and relaxing. The freshness of the water is often contrasted by the heat of the sun, allowing you to take sunbaths and freshen up when you get too hot.

5. Your pool can become the center of all your social events
