Summer is just beginning here in Texas and it already feels like the inside of an oven. It’s not too late to consider installing a pool in your backyard as the heat will just keep increasing until we reach the temperature of the sun. With public pools likely to continue to be closed, or have many restrictions this summer due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, at-home pools are becoming ever more appealing and convenient.

There are many benefits of having an in-ground pool at home including increased family time, at-home swimming lessons, a boost in your home value, and more opportunity to reap the health benefits of swimming (like reduced stress, improved sleep, toned muscles, and more!).

There are many different styles of in-ground pools to choose from so where do you get started? We’ll help you by sharing some exceptional, in-ground pool designs.
