Want An Affordable Swimming Pool? Try A Plunge Pool
When it comes to backyard swimming pools, most homeowners think of inground or aboveground pools. However, there is a third option for a home swimming pool that is rapidly gaining in popularity. Plunge pools are small, shallow pools designed for lounging and wading. They are a great option for anyone looking to cool off, enjoy a gentle soak, or have a few drinks beside their pool. If your pool is starting to age and you are considering pool liner repair and replacement, perhaps it’s time to consider an inexpensive alternative like a plunge pool. At Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs, we can help you build a new plunge pool and get all the swimming pool supplies you need to make the most of your backyard this summer.
Benefits of Plunge Pools
Slightly larger than a hot tub, but smaller than a large inground or aboveground swimming pool, plunge pools are perfect for anyone with limited outdoor space. With a smaller pool, you will require fewer swimming pool supplies and it will minimize the amount of time you need to spend cleaning and maintaining your pool. A smaller pool also means a smaller surface area if you ever require pool liner repair and replacement. If you do not intend to use your pool for swimming or endurance exercising, a plunge pool is a great option to stay cool in the summer, entertain friends with poolside drinks, and enjoy your outdoor living space.
Who Should Purchase a Plunge Pool?
A plunge pool is a popular choice for any homeowner with limited backyard space or anyone who does not plan on using their pool for traditional swimming. Plunge pools are popular for entertaining friends and lounging with loved ones, helping your stay cool and relaxed all summer long. If you are looking to purchase a backyard pool on a budget, are working with limited space, or want to minimize your maintenance routine, a plunge pool may be your best option. You can always compare backyard pool models with experts at your local pool and spa store. The Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs team is always happy to discuss inground, aboveground, and plunge pool options for backyards in the Greater Toronto Area.
Cons of Plunge Pools
The main con of a backyard plunge pool is that they are smaller than inground and aboveground pools and therefore can only fit a few people. If you have a large family or plan on entertaining many people, this may not be the option for you. Of course, you can always entertain the poolside and have a few guests use the plunge pool. As well, even though shallow water is perfect for teaching children to swim, it can still be dangerous. It is important to supervise pets, children, and guests while the pool is in use.
