An Inground Pool Buyer’s Guide
By Dennis DiPaolo

YOUR BACKYARD VACATION

Make waves this summer—with healthy outdoor fun right in your own backyard! Millions of American families have already discovered the home swimming pool, and consider it as much a part of summer as ice cream and fireworks.

A swimming pool is one of the best ways for children to play—and its good clean fun. Let a few of the neighborhood kids come over; at least you know who your children’s friends are!!

There are few things these days that can help keep a family together like a swimming pool. Barbecues and pool parties give everyone a chance to enjoy the pool, and there’s no packing or driving or crowds. For the cost of a one week vacation, you can have a mini-resort in your own backyard—at your call, any day, any time.

Take a half hour to relax in the pool after work—it can put a whole new light on the rest of the night. Speaking of which, the water will be feeling pretty warm at night, perfect for the occasional midnight dip when the kids are all asleep.

Swimming pools have come of age. These days, taking care of one is as easy as pie. With the right filter, chemicals and an automatic pool cleaner; you can have sparkling clean, cool water for pennies a day, and perhaps an hour a month in maintenance.

Sit back and relax. Put a cool drink in the arm of your pool lounger, and soak up the rays, at your home, in your pool, anytime you wish!

People who have never owned a pool often have lots of general questions before they even start to focus on a particular pool or store. Here are a few of them:

"You have done your job. Your staff is the best. Very friendly and knowledgeable. I look forward to the 05 pool season with Seasonal."
Joan, April 2005

"I had to call with questions and was helped right away over the phone without having to come in with a water sample. The problem was understood just by description and solved."
