We know that getting your own swimming pool is a major investment. It might be one of the biggest investments you’ve made — next to your house. Because of that, we have come up with 3 reasons having your own pool is better than a public pool.

The swimming pool contractors from Tipton Pools in Knoxville, Tennessee understand there are many more than three reasons, but when they talk with potential pool owners these are the three reasons they hear more frequently. We’d love to hear your unique reasons for wanting your own family swimming pool and we can help you make that dream a reality.

3 reasons having your own pool is better than a public pool

  1. It’s more convenient. This is a no-brainer, right? If you want to swim in a public pool or in a lake or ocean, you have to pack up the car, pack up the kids, fight the crowds and share the water with everyone else who is swimming. It’s not convenient. If you are looking at swimming as a way to get regular exercise, convenience is key. If you’re new to exercising, you will already be fighting the battle of looking for excuses and if you have to make plans to swim, chances are you will put it off.
  2. You will be able to spend more time together as a family. If your children are scattering and going to their friends houses — those who have pools — what better way to build memories than with your own pool and with your kids staying home? Your pool will be the go-to place for spending warm summer days and nights together. And your kids just might think you’re the coolest parents, ever!
  3. You don’t have to swim in the germs of others. Let’s face it, when you swim in a public pool you are swimming in the germs of everyone else who is using it. Yes, the pool is probably cleaned and maintained, but is it clean enough? If you’re not sure or if you have any questions, you may want to avoid the potential of an illness. If you have young children or if you have a compromised immune system, avoiding a public pool is better for your overall health.
