When the swimming pool contractors from Imperial Pools in Champaign, Illinois hear from many potential pool owners, “is it worth it to get a swimming pool?” It’s hard to give a definitive answer to this question because, as with anything in life, it’s a personal decision.

Has your family been asking for a pool for many years now? Do you look for vacation spots that have swimming pools? Have you been saving for a swimming pool and now that the time is upon you, you’re second guessing the money you will be spending?

Is it worth it to get a swimming pool?

Here are a few things to think about when trying to answer the question of whether a pool is “worth it” for your family:

  1.  It is a great place to enjoy quality family time with your children. If your children continually rush off their friend’s houses to swim in their pools and you want to spend time with your children, a pool just might e a very worthwhile investment.
  2. Are you looking to increase the potential resale value of your home? If other homes in your area have swimming pools and you don’t, this could impact its resale value if and when you sell the home. A swimming pool does have a positive impact on the value of the home, but if you’re just buying it for its potential resale value, then it might not be worth it.
  3. Expand your circle of friends. When you have a swimming pool your home becomes party central. If you and your family have an active social life, you can include swimming pool parties into the activities and enhance the fun you have with family and friends exponentially!

As mentioned, if you look for holiday getaways that have swimming pools when you have your own swimming pool you have a “staycation” spot. Let’s face it, vacations are fleeting even though the memories are not. When you have your own swimming pool, you and your family will have a place in the back yard that feels like a vacation every weekend!
