It can be so invigorating that every time you emerge out of the water, you feel like you’re reborn again. A pool could provide endless entertainment for you and your family.
I was just reading about the world biggest pool in Chile the other day and I was completely amazed, it’s over 1000 yards in length. I’m a lap swimmer and on a good day, I can do about a mile. That’s 37 laps. Imagine if I have access to that pool, I wouldn’t have to go back and forth 37 times. It would just be ONE lap.
Of course, not every one of us can shell out $1 billion to have a pool like that in our backyard, and imagine the maintenance cost of something that big. They estimated that it would cost around $2 million/yr. Since you’re reading this, I can make a wager that you don’t have that kind of money.

You don’t get a pool just by planning! You need to find swimming pool builders. First do some research on the quality of their work; a major indicator of this is how long they have been in business.
