Whether it’s a small exercise pool with a resistance jet built in at one end or a water park-like paradise complete with lagoon-style waterfall, there are few outdoor amenities as refreshing as a swimming pool—especially when temperatures pass the 90˚ mark. Of the roughly five million homes in the U.S. that have in-ground pools, these three offer exceptional fun, provide a great place to entertain and add value to your home.
