When I was young the one thing I thought showed how established a person had become in his life was if they had a garden pool in their house. And why not right?
It was something that showed luxury and exuberance, and so it automatically related back to that wonderful thing called money. Thank goodness things are different today!
Nowadays it is quite a common thing to see garden pools, especially when the garden has been landscaped, making the area user friendly for the whole family.
The strict laws with pool fencing, make it safe for the family. All gates must be self closing and child proof.
