As winter gives us the last of its weariness and woes, we can all look forward to the fact that spring is on the way. After that, summer! Back to hot days and warm nights. Back to getting outside in the fresh air and getting some exercise. The pool builders in Houston are gearing up to do some installs for the summer, you can be sure. But if you don’t have you own pool, you can always beat the heat at a local public pool or a nearby lake. Of course, swimming with a bunch of strangers is not exactly ideal.
Sure, it’s fun to get out and be with people, but there are some things to consider. First of all, the locker rooms and dressing areas can be breeding grounds for mold and Athlete’s foot fungus. And the pool itself isn’t always much better. Though most pools are chlorinated, which kills many bacteria and viruses, some germs can take a while to die off. This increases the chance that you or a family member will become exposed to a bug that can make you sick. On the flip side, when pools are over chlorinated, it can make you just as ill with skin rashes, respiratory distress, and even headache and nausea.
When it comes to swimming in a lake, you never know what is swimming around with you. There are been illness from bird and animal feces as well as human feces. Without any chlorine to keep the lake at least somewhat sanitized, you take a high risk on this one.
Have your kids been bugging you for a new pool? Have you repeated the word “no” so many times that even you are getting sick of it? Maybe it’s time you reconsider. You control your own sanitization, assuring that you are never under or over chlorinated. And with less people using the pool, you’ll have less chance of illness being passed around in the water.
Plus, swimming is one of the best ways that you can stay fit. You get a high-quality workout with minimal stress to your joints. Even if you don’t swim, you can get in the water and jog or do other water exercises to get the maximum calorie burn. If you invite friends and family to join you in the pool, you’ll also reap the benefits of socialization while having a blast.
Imagine not having to pack up the car and the kids; not having to drive to the local swim spot; not having to pay a membership or fees; not having to be sure that you remember to pack sunscreen; not paying for high-priced concession snacks or bottled water. It’s all at your home, no fuss, no worries. Your pool builders in Houston are ready to give you the pool that you need, without the public problems.
