My kid is in the pool almost every day. Here in Phoenix, a person could have a decent, modern self cleaning pool installed for less than the price of a Honda Accord. MUCH cheaper for above ground pools. A swimming pool in the back yard is not the luxury status symbol it once was.
Of course the kids love it - and if parents are worried about the safety of kids playing in the neighborhood - well the neighborhood kids would all love to splash in your pool: so get permission slips and host pool parties every weekend and become a social hub of your neighborhood.
Sure beats the heck out of wasting your summers in the basement playing video games
