Benefits of Owning a Swimming Pool for Children

Some of our best memories as kids were around a swimming pool! There’s just something special about swimming with friends and family during a hot summer day as a child! Of course, pools are not only fun for kids, but they also provide many important benefits toward their health and development as well. By using Waters Choice Pure Enzymes for Pools you're simplifying the maintenance routine for your pool water while cutting down on toxic chemicals. So, go ahead and increase the activity of your kids by owning a pool for them, but also keep them safe with a natural water environment.

 

Gets Your Children Out of the House

 

Unfortunately, many of today’s kids spend far too much time indoors especially during the time of Covid precautionary lockdowns and the pandemic.  Video games, social media, online gaming, and television seem to have replaced outdoor activities for many. Luckily swimming is still an activity that must be done in the fresh air and not on electronic devices. Owning a pool is a great excuse to get your kids to leave the house and play outside while interacting with others.  This important outdoor playtime is essential for developing social skills and building real friendships with others.

 

Exercise

 

According to various scientific studies, many children don’t come close to exercising enough.  This leads to high obesity rates and several other mental and physical health problems down the road. Swimming is a fantastic way to exercise and is a great deal of fun at the same time! It may be difficult to get your kids to head outside to run and play at first but you’ll probably have more success getting them to swim.

 

Safety

Our world is mostly filled with water, so being unable to swim can be very dangerous. Having a pool is a wonderful way to allow your children to become comfortable with swimming and could save their lives if they ever fall into water later on. 

Coordination and Athleticism

In addition, swimming helps build strength, stamina and over-all physical fitness. It’s fantastic for developing coordination and body control.  When you swim you must control all four limbs and your breath at once.  This is a tremendous skill-builder for being able to use your body efficiently.  Furthermore, this practice will help your child become a better and more functional athlete over time. 

Stress Relief and Confidence

It’s safe to say that many people think that kids have nothing to be stressed about.  “Afterall, you’re just a kid”. We couldn’t disagree more. With this in mind, balancing school, sports, socializing with peers and other tasks can be very overwhelming for developing minds.

In our opinion, children and teens are in a spot where they’re expected to do a lot but their bodies are constantly changing both physically and mentally.  Swimming is a fantastic way to spend time with friends and family while blowing off some steam. Consequently, this outlet will be an excellent resource for them to relax while reducing stress levels, in order to be more confident in their own abilities.

 

Given these points, owning a swimming pool is a good source of recreation for your children but also offers many benefits for their health and development.  If you’d like to learn more about the benefits of pools, benefits of owning a pool for children or how to properly maintain pool water contact us at Waters Choice today.

 

Waters Choice Enzyme System

 

Enzymes treat pool water filled with organics like sunscreen, sweat, urine, and debris from plants and trees. These organics puts a high demand on chlorine, which means you must increasingly use more. Waters Choice Pool Enzymes will break down the organics in your water, freeing up the chlorine to do what it does best. This allows you to use less chlorine which is so much better for you and your pool.
