A pool for the kids: Nine reasons to say yes

A pool for the kids: Nine reasons to say yes

A pool for the kids? A swimming pool is not only a great addition to your home, but it brings the family together and allows you to create precious memories.

Here are 9 advantages of owning a swimming pool for your children.

1. A good way to exercise

Many benefits come with taking a dip in the pool — like increased cardiovascular health. In addition, water activities are great ways to encourage your children to become more active. And the best thing is that they won't even know notice — they'll be too busy having fun.

2. A Home Pool is Cleaner Than a Public Pool

Public pools are not always the cleanest. As a result, public pools increase the risk of illnesses caused by parasits like Cryptosporidium, Giardia, and Shigella. 

Chlorine and bromine are meant to keep these harmful pathogens at bay, but the pool's shallow end intended for child's play isn't treated with these essential chemicals.

With an at-home pool, you have control over the maintenance and cleanliness of the water. You will also have the peace of mind that your child is playing in safe and pathogen-free water.

Our integrated system allows you to monitor the health of your pool water from your mobile phone. 

3. Can Help With Certain Health Conditions

Swimming can even help with many health issues. For example, children with asthma may be less likely to have an attack while swimming compared to other types of exercise.

In addition, water activities are ideal for children who are rehabilitating from injuries or who have disabilities that limit mobility.

4. Encourages Your Children to Be More Social

It seems like nowadays, children are glued to electronic devices. If you're struggling to get your kids to step away from tablets and phones, installing a pool may be the answer.

Gathering your kids for a fun afternoon of water activities is bound to get them to break out of their shells. You can even invite the neighbors to join in.

5. Makes Bedtime Easier

Can swimming make bedtime smoother? Yes! As enjoyable as it is, swimming is a strenuous and tiring activity. So, after spending a few hours in the pool, your kids will be ready for bed. In fact, they may want to go to bed earlier.

6. Gets Everyone Outdoors

Vitamin D deficiency can lead to a loss of bone density, which can eventually lead to osteoporosis and fractures. This vitamin is synthesized by skin cells when they come into contact with UVB and UVA rays.

There is thus nothing better than getting the whole family outside!

Warning: avoid exposure to the sun between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.! Sunburn should be avoided at any age, especially in children.

7. More Family Time

It can be difficult for everyone to make time for family with busy schedules and lifestyles. But a backyard pool offers your family the opportunity to spend more time together. 

Just picture it. The kids are splashing around, Dad is firing up the grill on the pool deck, Mom is lounging on a chair with a good book. Everyone gets to do what they enjoy all in the same place — the epitome of quality time.

8. Helps manage stress

Parents aren't the only ones who get stressed from time to time. Kids get a little frazzled, too. And swimming is the perfect way to alleviate stress. Water activities release endorphins — the "feel good" hormone known for its stress relief effect.

9. Improves Mental Development

Researchers have found that water activities allow children to benefit mentally, emotionally, and cognitively. For instance, aquatic exercise boosts blood flow to the brain, improving memory, focus, and clarity.

And the earlier you introduce your children to swimming, the better their brain development.

Warning

  • Skin: Overexposure to the sun is harmful. Sunburn is the ultimate warning signal. To safely enjoy the sun, avoid sun exposure between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.. Hats and sunglasses are your friends. There are also UV protection suits for children. If the UV index is greater than 3, protect exposed areas with sunscreen.
  • Safety: keep your children under surveillance in all circumstances around a swimming pool. Cover bars and/or barriers add extra protection when the pool is not in use.
  • Hydrocution: wait at least 1h30 to 2h after a meal. Enter the water gradually.
