Christmas Poolscape Ideas, from Houston Pool Builder, The Pool Man, Inc.

Christmas lights in backyard

It’s that time of year where the stores are decorated to the nines, holiday parties are abundant and Christmas cards arrive almost daily in the mailbox. So what are you doing this year to celebrate? If you’re hosting a party at your home, then take note of a few ways you can incorporate your backyard into a winter wonderland, even if the weather requires you stay indoors.

One of the easiest ways you can turn the poolscape into a fabulous party ambiance is by adorning it with white lights. Sure red and green and even multicolored lights are fun, but nothing makes a holiday statement more than white lights. Hang a few strands in your landscaping, string some up on your patio, find white-lit snowflakes and dangle those for all to see the “snow” fall.

Incorporate candles all around to keep the atmosphere cozy and inviting. Winter white candles illuminate a fabulous hue while gold and silver candles add that extra pizazz. Put some on the tables, line the pool’s edge, wherever…just place them all about and light up the backyard with natural light.

And the last touch that will make the backyard the place to be this holiday season? Add dashes of pine in little areas. A fresh wreath on an outside wall, pine cones scented with cinnamon as your centerpiece, boughs of holly hanging from a light or fan. No matter what you do, little touches here and there can make all the difference between the usual and the festive.

Electrical Safety Tip from your Custom Pool Builder in Houston – The Pool Man, Inc.

This tip is brought to you through The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals

 If a tingling sensation is felt in or near the pool, shut off all electrical power to pool equipment.

Call a pool professional or electrician to check the pool for electrical safety before allowing anyone to use the pool.

Electrical leakage in a pool area could come from any electrical source. If a tingling sensation is felt, electrical leakage is probably present.

Even with the power off, electrical current could be present. Any electrical leakage in the pool can be very dangerous.

The Benefits of Swimming for your Lungs, from Houston Pool Builder, The Pool Man, Inc.

Swimming is an excellent cardiovascular exercise, but did you know some of the benefits of swimming? According to the American Lung Association, a person takes 20,000 breaths a day. Imagine having trouble taking in any one of those 20,000 breaths. Swimming is a great way to improve your body’s oxygen use and increase your lung function so you won’t have trouble breathing. Since the human body has a fixed lung size, there is no way to increase it, however, through exercise like swimming, you can help your body become more proficient at pushing the oxygen through the lungs. Swimming is also good for people who suffer from breathing problems, as there are exercises you can do in the water to help increase your breath capacity — like swimming as far as you can underwater without taking a breath or training your body to take a breath every fourth or fifth stroke instead of every one or every other one. And just a little tidbit — when a swimmer is in his peak condition, his lungs will use oxygen three times more efficiently than the average person!

Water as a Form of Relaxation, from your Houston Pool Builder, The Pool Man, Inc.

photo of spa with laminarsThe makers behind those compact water fountains you can plug in somewhere in your home are on to something. The sound of flowing water is one of the most effective stress relievers out there. Because you own a pool, you’ve got relaxation at your fingertips. Stress can impact our mental and physical health in a number of ways causing headaches, depression, high blood pressure, and stomach aches just to name a few. Yet no matter the toll stress can take on our bodies, we still put ourselves in stressful situations, because let’s face it, sometimes it’s unavoidable. But take advantage of the stress-free zone that is in your backyard. Forget taking a dip in the pool — yes, even a swim would relax you — because just sitting by the pool for a few minutes at the end of your day and listening to one of your water features or the water slapping the sides of the tile are sure to calm your heart. Even if it’s raining outside, take a seat under your patio or open a window so you can listen to the rain fall into the pool. The soothing sounds of water are sure to change your mood and reduce your stress. Find ways to incorporate a few minutes at the pool’s edge during the week, even if it is only five and notice the difference in your mood directly after.
