Swimming pools are a “must-have” backyard element in backyards, especially when summer arrives and you and your children need to escape the heat. However, if you have a smaller house or a yard that is not particularly large, constructing a standard swimming pool may not be possible and a plunge pool becomes the ideal solution in these circumstances. J&L Hardscapes, LLC offers plunge pool design and installation services to Austin, Texas clients.
What Is a Plunge Pool?
The plunge pool, also called a dipping pool, becomes an ideal compromise when yard space is limited. You can enjoy all the advantages of a standard pool in a far smaller area.
At its most fundamental level, this pool is a small swimming pool. Most plunge pools are slightly bigger than a hot tub, measuring between 4 and 7 meters in length, 2 to 3 meters in width, and around 1.2 meters in depth.
You can install it where a standard pool cannot fit, such as down the side of a smaller property, nestled behind a wall or fence, or in an enclosed portion of your home. It offers all the advantages of a regular pool without needing additional room.
How Do Plunge Pools Work?
This pool is essentially a compact version of a standard swimming pool and functions similarly. They are typically built in-ground. However, concrete and fiberglass resin variants for above-ground installation are available. They feature the same filtration systems and pumps as standard pools. People predominantly use plunge pools for two activities:
- The first is unwinding. It provides you and your family with a space to enjoy playing in the water and a pleasant location to cool down when necessary. You can even put Jacuzzi-style jets in the sitting sections of a plunge pool to transform it into a spa.
- The second component is aquatic rehabilitation. You can add resistance jet devices to your plunge pool to transform it into a location for exercise and swim training.
Plunge pools are compact and fit in small backyards. They are more cost-effective than a standard pool, and the ongoing maintenance is also lower. The upkeep and cleaning are more straightforward, and you still benefit from a usable water feature on your property.
