Nowadays, more and more people are concerned with enhancing their own – and their families’ – physical and emotional health, but not everyone is on those heavily populated bandwagons. Perhaps you are aware of these trends and are thus still searching for persuasive arguments against installing a backyard pool. We’ve already given you two blog posts worth of reasons so far (Part 1 & 2). Finally, here are four financial considerations for you to seriously think about. If you’re not one of those persons who enjoys the thought of saving money, a pool is definitely not for you.
You’d Rather Spend Too Much on Entertainment
You could rationalize a leisurely staycation with your favorite friends if you had your own pool. But what would you do if you didn’t have to spend all that extra cash on an exotic, luxury vacation? (We’re certain you’d miss the stress brought on by the additional debt, preparation, and travel as well.) Pools enable you to throw a party that everyone on the block or in your social network will want to attend, outside of just your immediate family. You won’t have to do much work or spend an excessive amount of money. A pool party is not the best option, though, if you really want to save the extra cost. Better not take a chance.
You Do Not Want To Upgrade Your Residence
The majority of homeowners could view this as favorable, but you might not. Your home’s worth usually increases as a result of home renovations, and installing an in-ground pool commonly results in the biggest rise in value. Investing in a low-cost above-ground swimming pool can help you avoid the possibility of increasing your property’s overall value. You might not want to do that either, because you would still have to manage the other financial perks.
You Favor Complicated Home & Yard Additions
The majority of pool care may now be automated thanks to modern technology, which was once practically impossible without employing an outside provider. No more pool boy; no more recurring expenses. Although some people might view that as a benefit, modern swimming pools are not for you if you’d rather stay away from inexpensive home improvements. Of course, if you preferred, you could stick with the old school and hire someone to check the water, keep the water level at the right level, and sanitize your pool every couple of days. However, it would probably be best to completely avoid the risk by just doing without a pool.
You HATE a Beautiful Yard
A pool is undoubtedly a problem for some people, whether they simply don’t care about how their yard looks or would prefer to put a lot more effort into creating a visually pleasing yard. A pool is the quickest path to a gorgeous yard, because it is so simple to surround with the right landscaping. For some, it even resembles an oasis or a small piece of heaven. We understand why you would not want that. Okay, possibly.
