Now if all the enticing sales and freebies didn’t make you want to run to Valley Pool & Spa to buy an aboveground swimming pool for your family this summer let me just remind you of a couple more reasons why you really should jump feet first (see what I did there?) to buy your own pool and avoid the public pools this summer.


  1. Public pools are crawling with germs and bacteria- Have you ever been to the amusement park public pool and seen the sights? Saggy diapers, sneezing people, nobody leaving the pool for hours to go to the bathroom… yeah, it’s all in the water and no amount of chlorine can kill every single germ that is in that pool as it gets in the water. 
  2. 1 in 5 adults pees in the pool- Whether it’s because they are too lazy or fear leaving their children to use the bathroom there was a study done in 2012 by the Water Quality & Health Council that found that one in every five of U.S. adults admits to urinating in the pool. If they aren’t leaving to go to the bathroom themselves then you know their kids are going either…which means other bodily fluids could be lurking. 
  3. Some bacteria are resistant to just chlorine- While chlorine is the most common sanitizer of swimming pools and the most effective when public pools are packed the amount of chlorine dissipates with every germ the chlorine needs to kill. In your own swimming pool you have the control over who goes in your pool and what goes in your pool. Shocking the pool weekly along with maintenance chemicals help to keep all bacteria out of your pool and off your family. 
  4.  People don’t bathe before they swim- Another report from the Water Quality and Health Council also found that 70% of people do not even rinse off before getting in a pool because they feel it is a “communal bathtub”, um, ick. I don’t know about you but I’m not a fan of taking a bath with multiple people let alone hundreds of people. It’s important to at least rinse off before getting into a pool or hot tub to keep the swimming water healthy for everyone. Having your own backyard oasis can let you keep tabs on any “dirty swimmers” that try to take a “bath” with you.           crowded bathtub
  5. Irritated eyes, nose, and throats are not from too much chlorine- Chlorine is meant to sanitize the pool and it is a heavy misconception that too much of the chemical will irritate your body. That is not the case, it turns out that red eyes, itchy throats, and burning nostrils come from the direct result of nasty bodily fluids in the water. That’s right, urine, feces, and sweat!  If you have ever been to a pool that has a “strong chemical smell”, it’s not what you think. A strong chemical smell at public pools (you can almost always smell it in hotels that aren’t the greatest in quality) it is not a sign that there is too much chlorine in the water. It actually is an irritant called ‘chloramines’ which are produced when the chemical combines with all the nasty dirt, urine, feces, and sweat from swimmers. These chloramines use up the chlorine, meaning there is not enough to kill all the germs in the water. Again with a pool of your own, you control what goes in the water and you know how sanitized and clean the water is (with the help from Valley Pool & Spa).

Moral of the story, get your own above ground swimming pool from Valley Pool & Spa for your backyard! The care is simple and Valley Pool & Spa is there to help you every step of the way!
