Lounging around the pool and swimming are popular summertime activities that adults and especially kids love once school is finished. Pools are a great way to keep cool in the dog days of summer, but they can also be dangerous if the inhabitants of the pool are not watched closely by adults.  Inground swimming pools and above ground swimming pools are the two most popular types of pools on the market today. Above ground swimming pools are starting to become less and less popular these days because they require stairs and sometimes even a deck to access the pool, which can lead to injuries if children are left unattended. In ground swimming pools are easy to access because they are level with the ground and no one has to climb a ladder to reach the water.  A gate can be placed in front of the stairs to an above ground pool that can prevent children from accessing the pool when no one is watching.

Whether a piece of property has an inground swimming pool or an above ground swimming pool, the owner of the property is legally responsible to have a fence erected around their property to keep wandering children away from the pool.  Landscaping can easily be performed around in-ground swimming pools, which can raise the property value of the land where the pool is located. If you like hosting summer pool parties at night, in-ground swimming pools can provide people with a lot of excitement since they have interior lighting that makes it easier to swim once the sun sets.  People that want to swim at night should purchase in-ground swimming pools because they have lights that help to illuminate the inside of the pool.  People enjoy swimming in the early morning and late at night in their in-ground swimming pools so they purchase ones that have water heaters so that the water is warm enough to enjoy. In-ground swimming pools can be purchased from swimming pool contractors all over the country as well as above ground pools at specialty stores in most towns.
