Is a Plunge Pool Right for You?
If you've always wanted to be able to take a dip with friends and family from the comfort of your own home but haven't been able to install a pool because you can't fit a full-sized pool in your backyard then, a plunge pool could be the solution you didn't know you needed. A plunge pool is a small swimming pool that is good for cooling off, water aerobics, lounging, and entertaining. These trendy small pools are common in Europe and gaining traction in North America. If you need help deciding if it's right for you, then read on to see how you can benefit from a small swimming pool.
If you want a swimming pool because you want to swim laps or entertain large groups of people, a plunge pool may be too small to accommodate your needs. Despite being smaller in size, plunge pools can typically range from 4-8 feet deep, making them great for water aerobics, cooling off, or lounging poolside with friends. While plunge pools generally are kept at cool temperatures, in some cases, the water can be heated, and jets can be added for a relaxing experience.
If you're looking to have a pool quickly installed and ready for use in time for summer in Toronto, then a plunge pool is an excellent option for you. Because these swimming pools are significantly smaller, their installation requires less time, less labour, and less equipment than the full-sized pool, which helps accelerate pool installation.
The maintenance demands of swimming pools can cause hesitancy when buying a swimming pool, but when you opt for a plunge pool, its care requires significantly less time, money, and energy into your maintenance. Plunge pools have less surface area and volume than your typical in-ground or above-ground pool, reducing care duration and frequency.
The upfront costs of a plunge pool are more affordable than a full-sized swimming pool and more cost-effective over time. Installation requires less equipment, time, and labour which reduces costs from your pool contractors. Whether you intend to handle pool care yourself or hire a service company, chemicals, tools, and time required for pool maintenance will be significantly less for a smaller swimming pool, reducing the total cost and frequency of recurring expenses.
Plunge pools offer more opportunities for custom design and landscaping options for your backyard. A pool does not have to be a dominating feature in your yard when you choose a plunge pool. Instead, a smaller swimming pool allows you to accent your backyard without overtaking your landscaping. Just like a full-sized pool, you can still customize the shapes, stones, and colours. In addition to your perfect pool, Seaway Pools offers custom landscaping and design services to elevate your backyard space.
