Pool ownership (slightly) increases in Australia

Market research firm Roy Morgan says swimming pool ownership is on the rise in Australia. According to its latest report, nearly 13% of the total population (2.7 million) lives in a home with a swimming pool. That's up 1% since the last study was conducted in 2015.

Regional Queensland has the highest count, with 20% of Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Bundaberg, Mackay, Townsville and Cairns residents living in a home with a swimming pool.

Trailing slightly behind, those figures decrease to 19% for Perth, 18% for Brisbane and 15% for Sydney.

Only 9% of Melbourne and Adelaide residents can boast a pool, with Hobart trailing behind at just 4%.
