6 Benefits of a Plunge Pool
Here in Australia, a swimming pool is definitely one of the best ways to cool down when summer rolls around. If you don’t have the yard space for a larger swimming pool, a plunge pool is an excellent alternative.
In this guide, we’ve put together several reasons why a plunge pool may be the best option for you.
1. Less Space is Needed for Installation
As a plunge pool is smaller in size than a regular swimming pool, you don’t need a large yard in order to have one installed. Whether you choose to position it besides a deck or near a wall, a plunge pool is also a great way of utilising previously unused space.
What’s more, because plunge pools are often designed to fit into odd spaces, they’re much more accessible to everyday homeowners who may not be able to afford a home with lots of land.
2. Reduced Cleaning or Maintenance Issues
Plunge pools are very easy to look after. As they’re smaller in size, there won’t be as much debris that sits in the pool.
You can choose to remove the debris using a vacuum or even a scoop net to remove any small branches or leaves that fall into your pool. And, as an added bonus, it’s a lot easier to throw on a cover if you’re not going to be using your pool for some time.
3. Ongoing Costs are Lower
Not only do you need less water to fill a plunge pool, but you’ll also be saving a lot of money on maintenance in the long term compared to a regular swimming pool. This is because you won’t need as many chemicals to keep the water clean, nor will you require the same number of pumps, heaters and filters.
4. Lower Installation Fees
Since a smaller area needs to be cleared and dugout, installing a plunge pool is cheaper than a traditional swimming pool. The installation costs are also lower because you don’t need as many materials like tiling and decking.
5. Single and Family Use
A plunge pool is ideal for both single and family use. Whether you want to use your plunge pool for aerobic exercise, wish to stimulate circulation after a session in the sauna, or want to let the kids cool down after a long day at school, the opportunities are endless.
6. Add Value to Your Home
Should you decide to sell your home in the future, a plunge pool often adds significant value and can be an attractive selling point for potential buyers.
