Especially on summer days like these, when it's about a million degrees out, a pool is a nice thing to have. But, you may be thinking, my backyard is not big enough for a pool. Or maybe you have the space but you're not totally keen on a pool taking up your entire backyard, because you want to be able to do other things there, too. But I am here to tell you that even if your backyard tends towards the teeny side, you can still have a pool. When it comes to pools, bigger isn't always better. Sure, you may not be able to train for the Olympics, but you'll be able to submerge yourself and drink a cold one on a hot summer day — and isn't that what pools are for?
