Building an Indoor Pool? What You Need to Know

You’ve considered building a pool before. But now, you’ve made the decision to take the plunge and build a pool for you and your family to enjoy. Thanks to Canada’s cold weather seasons, you’ve probably made the smart decision to build an indoor pool, so that you can enjoy your swim sessions year-round. Before you begin the building process, let’s run through the need-to-knows for building an indoor pool.

Aside from the costs of the indoor pool itself, you should think about the funds you’ll need to set aside for other costs that you’ll encounter throughout the building process. You’ll likely want to install a solar heating system to maintain the water temperature with energy-efficient technology. You’ll also need to prepare the room with proper pool enclosures. Since indoor pools are situated inside the home, they add a lot of moisture in the air. So, to maintain the longevity of your home, you would need to set up dehumidifying systems to get rid of the heat and humidity indoor pools create and maintain it at levels of 50-60%. Also consider putting up vapour barriers where there is a common wall shared between the room with the indoor pool and another room in your home to prevent mold from growing.

In contrast to the additional costs you may incur, think about how much value your new indoor pool will add to your home, so that you can factor it into your future financial plans. Having an indoor pool installed will typically add more value to your home. If you ever want to sell your home, buyers will most likely be more attracted to your house if it has an indoor pool. Indoor pools are also a great investment that you and your family can enjoy altogether. Kids love playing in the waters, so you can also spend quality time and create lasting memories. If you often host parties at your house, having an indoor pool will also add to the fun and enjoyment of your guests at your party.

Contrary to outdoor pools, indoor pools create the perfect conditions for swimming all day, everyday. You no longer have to worry about weather conditions, and can enjoy the waters any time you want. Start planning how you want to use the pool on a daily basis: commit to exercising daily or weekly in the pool. If you don’t have enough time to hit the gym, simply take a swim inside your indoor pool to keep yourself active. Some people are also afraid to go to public swimming pools or the beach because they feel embarrassed by the way they look in a bathing suit. Indoor pools are at the comfort of your own home, so you won’t have to worry about other people judging the way you look. Most importantly, having an indoor pool is like going on vacation every single day. Plan family days where you can all enjoy the pool together. All you need to do is put on some shades and pretend you’re in Hawaii!
