Reasons to Remove Your Swimming Pool in Rockville, MD

Has your pool impeded on your green? Space and money? A pool is not just a pool. Remember a pool not only consists of the constructed hole filled with water, but also the landscaping, hardscaping, pool accessories, equipment (filters, pumps, heaters) that also need to provide perfected aesthetics and updated function.

Conserve Your Resources: The cost and energy that it takes to keep up a swimming pool not to mention an aging pool in need of repair can be disheartening. Of the 10.6 million swimming pools in the U.S., Americans spend a total of about $1 million per hour on their swimming pool. Between opening/closing costs, cleanings of pool and surrounding concrete, chemicals, electric bills, insurance, property tax increases, replacements and repairs of various equipment and components, water refills, accessories such as vacuums and fountains, and resurfacings it can sometimes seem endless.

The Trade-Off: Removing a mature swimming pool can increase the number of potential buyers in the housing market. If you are interested in selling your house, renting it out or maintaining value keep in mind that there may be discouragement by those that find the responsibilities of the existing pool staggering. Additionally, other information to keep in mind that may help your decision. According to the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals 65% of Americans do not know how to swim, and of those that do only 17.4% are adults (the housing market).

Weed Out Danger: Sometimes changes in our lives and lifestyles cause us to gain more awareness and concern for the dangers that lie with having a swimming pool. Did you know that according to the World Health Organization and the CDC, drowning is the leading cause of unintentional deaths in the world? In the U.S. 75% of drowning deaths of children younger than 15 occurred at a swimming pool located at a private residence—either a home or neighbor’s pool. Whether you are concerned about unattended children or about needed repairs that expose other potential dangers, it may be time to remove these hazards that worry you.

A Fresh Start: Regaining usable yard space may be just what the doctor ordered. Green space, your yard, contributes to health and well-being. Use your imagination and remove the pool for a useful and strong foundation to grow your ideas.  Not only is maintaining an outdoor space good for the environment, but it is good for your sustained mental health. According to research nature reinforces social interactions, makes you nicer, establishes a more expressed value for community and close relationships, improves attention span and helps you work more efficiently and effectively.  In the words of Louis Glickman, famed psychologist, “The best investment on earth is earth.”.
