Summer means sweltering days are back in season, and so are swimming pools. Yes, the dreaded swimsuit season will be upon us again, which means rigorous workouts and crash diets. However, instead of having to go public with your not-so-ready swimsuit bod, wouldn't you rather have your very own pool? No one can judge then.

But while you can imagine all these things, you are a sensible human being. It all comes down to that dollar sign, which it really should. Swimming pools may add value to your home, but the real reason to get one is for you and your family's benefit.

You'll automatically be gaining a piece of workout equipment. You'll see results fast with a pool of your own. It's great for your heart, strengthens your core, and even helps with weight loss. The best part about it is you control every aspect of it. Who comes in and who doesn't, the hours its open, everything. You're also guaranteed the kids will get outside and do something other than playing video games in the dark.

Friends, family, and neighbors will be visiting a little bit more than usual. Depending on how many and how often people want to use your new sparkling treasure, you could make the maintenance cost more affordable by asking them to contribute to the cleaning and/or cost of supplies. Summer parties become easier as well. Creating a simple menu and minimal decorations, your backyard bash will be a hit. And with all the kids splashing their hearts out, adults can have their adult time.

Let's also focus on the fact that gardening and backyard maintenance will get easier. Granted, the pool will need to be kept clean, and this will be a little time consuming and costly. Again, asking friends and neighbors to contribute could help. The cost of keeping up with the grass, buying new plants, and all the landscaping needs will significantly go down, considering your pool will be a large portion of any yard. Designers for swimming pools, however, strive to create an oasis for their client. So, you don't have to miss out on any landscaping.

Pools have a luxurious feel to them. You could be living in style by adding one to your home. However, only do so when you can afford it. All these benefits are relevant, but it's not something to go into debt over. And if you can afford it? Do it for you and your family.
