As Maryland inground pool contractors, we know we’re biased, but 2020 is really a great year to have an inground pool. Some of the benefits of an inground pool in 2020 are unique to our current circumstances, but the benefits will continue for years to come.
So here are our Top 5 choices:
1. The Pandemic Did Not Affect Your Pool Opening
Staying at home during a pandemic is a lot more fun if you have an inground pool. You can spend outdoor time with your family while still following COVID-19 precautions. Investing in your inground pool is really paying off this year.
2. Your Inground Pool Is Good for Your Mental Health
The soothing sounds and feel of water are good for your mental health. So is the ability to be able to relax without worrying about whether the person next to you is healthy or not. And your pool is a great place to chill when things start to return to normal.
3. It Keeps Your Kids (And Grandkids) Happy
Being stuck at home with parents for teachers is not anyone’s idea of fun. Summer vacation never looked so good, even if it’s spent in your own back yard instead of flying off to exotic places. Now that the weather is warm and your inground pool is opened up, your kids will be out of your hair and in the pool. Little ones will still need adult supervision, of course.
4. You Can Exercise Even When the Gym Is Closed
If you’ve been missing your regular aerobics class at the gym, or lifting weights, never fear. You can still get a workout, with the help of your inground pool. Consider swimming laps, or doing your own water aerobics. Both are great forms of exercise, with water aerobics being good for when you need something low impact. Or, you can create a workout station poolside, and then use your outdoor shower before you jump in the pool to cool off.
5. Your Pool Encourages You to Get Some Vitamin D
On hot summer days, people without pools are more inclined to stay indoors with the AC cranked. But if you have an inground pool, you’re ready to go outside and enjoy the sun, and get your daily dose of Vitamin D. Lounging poolside or soaking in the pool are great ways to enjoy the sun, but stay cool at the same time.
