The demand for backyard pools is growing as homeowners look for ways to enhance their at-home lifestyle. In fact, pools are at the center of rapidly growing consumer interest in a healthy outdoor living lifestyle. As a result, families are investing in their homes and creating backyard oases complete with beautiful backyard pools.
It’s no wonder the demand for backyard pools has skyrocketed. In the past year alone, pool sales have increased dramatically as many consumers move to larger houses with backyards. Consumers increasingly want to live a balanced, healthy lifestyle with plenty of time spent outdoors.
In addition, acceptance of the work-from-home trend has accelerated as workers have come to experience the advantages of remote work during the pandemic. Hours gained from reduced commutes have turned into free-time for recreation and relaxation. As we come out of the pandemic, we all have a much greater appreciation for the added benefits of healthy relaxation and recreation that come with our own private backyard pool.
Homeowners appreciate the many advantages of having their own backyard oasis. Many see a complete backyard, with patio, pool, kitchen and landscaping, as an investment in their family. A backyard pool offers a convenient, easy-access option for family fun and recreation. When you incorporate special features and unique materials, a backyard pool can be an attractive home investment. A beautiful backyard oasis can even offer an experience rivaling that of an exotic vacation destination.
The demand for backyard pools has also been fueled by consumer interest in safe entertainment options. Are you interested in increased health and wellness options for yourself and your family? Backyard swimming pools offer fun and healthy activities for kids and adults of all ages. Investing in a backyard pool just makes good sense. And with the availability of space-saving spools, even owners of small urban yards can get in the game.

Add Sparkle and Shine: Swimming Pool Lighting
Have you noticed how lighting adds a brilliant, sparkling effect on a pool’s water surface in the evening? It’s truly lovely and mood-lifting! And we all need that, now more than ever. Pool lighting also adds depth, mystery, and drama to enhance your swimming and backyard experience. Not only that, but lighting improves night-time visibility and safety. Swimmers are easier to see and parents appreciate that they can better monitor their children. Lights enhance contrast, discretely highlight transitional areas, and define pool steps, Baja shelves, deck areas, and pool edges.
In addition, lighting allows you to extend your pool use and fun, well past the day-time hours. After night falls, dive in for a relaxing swim enhanced with ambient lighting. Follow up with a favorite beverage poolside for a perfect end to your day.
With added lighting, you can also celebrate evening get-togethers and pool parties with friends and family. On special occasions, you’re not limited to scheduling daytime events. Surprise and delight guests with automated and timed color effects to add a playful, festive note to your special events and themed parties.
