If you are regularly photographing people in pools or water...
...YES you do want a polarizer.

Warning: it will cost you 2 f-stops, usually. So, if they are in the shade, it is going to be more difficult to "freeze" any action, because your exposure time must be increased.

Yup, use a UV all the time to protect the lens, but a Skylight or Circular Polarizer can yield nice results on bright sunny days.

Buy good filters though. Your lens manfacturer spent money to coat the lens - make sure you buy some good coated filters. You don't want to reflect more light than you're letting in
