Will homeowners insurance cover damage to a pool?

My pool was damaged by vandals over the weekend. I want to get it fixed, but I'm not sure if my insurance will cover it. Will homeowner's insurance cover damage to a pool?

“Since vandalism is a covered peril in most insurance policies, your homeowners insurance should cover the cost of damage to your swimming pool.
You may also want to up the liability coverage on your home to protect yourself, much like you would protect yourself from damage to your vehicle on a liability coverage policy.
