When I get a message from a mother telling me she had her tiles tested for asbestos after watching an episode of my show-that makes me feel good. Or when Frank’s rant on an electrical DIY job gets people thinking twice about attempting their own electrical work, I know our message is getting across. This is why we do our TV shows. It's about education and awareness.

I've gotten a lot of questions over the years asking me whether I think a pool adds value to a home. I have a pool in my home and I have to say for me it's a great investment, in the summer my kids just call me up let me know they're coming to spend the day by the pool and I love having my family over.

While after the pandemic, the split of homeowners who think this is a good investment became 50/50, some people still worry about the cost of installation and maintenance, not to mention the idea of future buyers possibly getting scared off because they don't want to take over that responsibility.

I spoke to Leisure Pools, Heather Liang, and I have to say I wish I had a fibreglass pool installed in my home and here is why:

👉You can use it all year round. Yes, you read that correctly! With fibreglass pools you can leave the water filled in and when it's winter and the water turns into ice you can use it as your very own backyard rink —the material is that strong and durable..

👉 For starters, they are quick and easy to install. If Leisure Pools has your pool style, size, and colour in stock they could have it installed in as little as 2 days.

👉Fibreglass pools are also easy to maintain. With fibreglass pools you don't need to add chemicals and measure their levels to make sure the water has the right balance, instead, you simply maintain it by adding salt which usually doesn't fluctuate much unless the conditions are different such as after a rainy day.

👉You can use it all year round. Yes you read that correctith fibreglass pools you can leave the water filled in and when it's winter and the water turns into ice you can use it as your very own backyard rink —the material is that strong and durable.

Watch the full episode to learn more about fibreglass pools, their benefits, and why you might want to consider getting one in your backyard.
