There are many different myths that surround inground swimming pools. Here are a few of the ones that we’ve heard at Lake Norman Signature Pools & Patios and why they aren’t true.
Only Swimmers Can Physically Benefit from Swimming
You don’t have to be an Olympic swimmer to exercise in inground swimming pools. In many situations, you don’t even need to know how to swim the right way. Many different exercises, such as walking, jogging, or treading water in your pool, can benefit your physical health.
There’s Nothing You Can Do to Maintain the Cleanliness of Your Pool
The clarity and cleanliness of the water in your pool is largely dependent on how much time and effort you devote to it. By adding chlorine regularly, cleaning out your pool’s skimmer baskets, and sweeping down your pool’s walls, you can keep your pool water clean throughout the year.
Swimming Will Get in the Way of Your Sleep Schedule
If you have a hard time sleeping at night, spending some time in inground swimming pools can help. Since swimming, exercising, or playing with your family in your pool can wear you out, often much quicker than other forms of exercise, taking some time to swim every day may help you sleep better.
Spending Time Swimming Can Elevate Your Stress
Water is an effective natural stress reliever. Whether you actually get in your pool to swim or simply sit on a patio chair near it, you will likely find that having a pool in your backyard positively impacts your state of mind.
