Staycations have become popular in Ontario over the last few years, and this is even more true now due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With Ontario summers typically hovering around 30 degrees, a backyard pool is a great addition to your home, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors without the need to leave your property.
