Plunge pools serve a simple purpose: to provide a more relaxing vibe than a conventional-sized pool. If you’re looking to have one installed, make sure you take the time to know a few more essential things, such as the following:
Dimension and pricing – Always keep in mind to go for practical dimensions – at least 5 metres in length and 3 metres in width. Anything smaller than that will be uncomfortably small. Consider the price tag, and choose your contractor well.
Main usage – Consider how you’ll be using your pool for the entire year. One of the advantages of having a smaller, more intimately sized plunge pool is that it’s easier to heat the water to the desired comfortable temperature, turning your pool into an instant home-based spa. You can also add jets for massaging purposes, or for those who like to exercise.
Additional options – Aside from the entry and exit steps, you might want to include some large underwater seats or ledges to lay on and relax, which are great when combined with the steps.
Location – Make sure that the pool is neither too far or too near your home. If it’s too far, you risk getting yourself or your friends and family bringing a lot of dirt into the pool; if it’s too near, you’ll need to keep a watchful eye on your children or pets as the pool could pose a danger to them.
