Positive memories are an important part of our lives. Not only do positive memories tend to be longer-lasting, but positive memories also improve our moods, leading to a happier, healthier life. Swimming pool owners know and experience the wonderful life-long memories that come from having a pool right in your own backyard. As we take a look back on 2016, let’s take a look at some of the ways pools provide these positive, memorable experiences that stay with us for a lifetime.

1. Pools Bring Families Together

Whether it’s just you and your spouse or partner, or you have kids at home, it can be difficult to find time and activities that everyone wants to spend together. A pool provides a place for everyone to come together and relax, dine, play or be entertained. Unlike having to drive to a community pool, restaurant, or movie theater for entertainment, a pool is convenient and just feet or yards from your door. A pool is also something every family member, no matter their age, can enjoy. Also, when you own a pool, it provides an added bonus for out-of-town family to enjoy when they come visit. Think of all the great family memories you can have at your pool!

2. Experience Your Kids Growing Up

For those with small children, your backyard pool provides the opportunity to watch your kids grow up. You’re able to experience your kids as babies learning to swim and in awe of the water. Then there’s the experience of your child swimming on their own the first time, followed by watching them learn fun pool games and enjoy their friends. Looking back, you’ll remember all the fond memories of your children at different ages having a blast and learning valuable skills in the pool.

3. Pools Provide Fun Entertainment

Instead of having get-together indoors, pools provide the perfect setting for a party or reunion. The party possibilities are endless and never boring. Whether you choose a fun evening of cocktails by your beautiful pool under the setting sun, or a luau theme with tiki torches, Caribbean inspired drinks, and tropical flare, your parties will be so much more memorable and exciting by the pool.

4. Pools Bring Couples Together

Pools can be very romantic. Instead of going out for date night, think of all the romantic possibilities: slow dancing by the pool, enjoying a night-time swim, candle light pool-side dinner for two, and many more. Pool lighting, decorations, and music can provide the perfect ambiance for a memorable date night by the pool with your significant other or spouse.

5. The Pool Buying Experience

The pool buying experience itself is memorable. Making the decision to purchase a pool is exciting as you explore all the possibilities like the style, color, features, landscaping and decorating your pool space. As you make your pool space uniquely your own, to fit your needs, you’ll remember the fun experience for many years to come.
