Plunge Pools in Canada – Benefits Of A Small Swimming Pool
May 22, 2023

If you live in a townhouse or have a tiny backyard, creating a backyard oasis with a small swimming pool is easier than you think! Your local Narellan Pools pool builder can help transform your backyard into an outdoor area for you to enjoy all year round. How? With a plunge pool.

What Is A Plunge Pool?

Plunge pools typically have the same features as family-sized fiberglass swimming pools – they’re just smaller! Plunge pool designs by Narellan Pools feature generous steps, long bench seats where you can sit back and relax and even a splash deck, perfect for young children to play. Plunge pools are the ideal choice for small backyards, in large backyards where you don’t want a pool to dominate the space, and for cost.

They are predominantly used for relaxation, having been originally modelled on the natural pools found at the base of waterfalls, plunge pools are perfect for relaxation and low-impact exercise, such as running, underwater Jazzercise and cardio exercises like squats and lunges. Adding spa jets will turn your plunge pool into a relaxing hydrotherapy bath or install swim jets for resistance training. And because they aren’t generally deep, typically around 1.5 metres, plunge pools are ideal for rehabilitation from injury or illness.

Benefits Of Downsizing To A Small Swimming Pool

Putting aside space limitations, there are two significant benefits to downsizing to a small swimming pool – they’re cheaper to install and maintain, and as a byproduct, leave a much smaller carbon footprint.

Small swimming pools are more affordable than larger styles – they require less fiberglass and shorter manufacturing times –  but the cost-saving isn’t just with the pool shell. Smaller pools only need a small hole, meaning less excavation, less labour hire and less landscaping in your backyard. They’re also a lot faster to install! 

As they hold less pool water, smaller pools use fewer chemicals, so they’re easier to maintain.You’ll have more time to enjoy your pool, and spend less time cleaning it. And it also means they are less harmful to the environment. Smaller pools also require less water, reducing your footprint, and if you’re using heating, they’ll save you money on electricity as well.

Why Choose A Plunge Pool Design For Your Backyard?

Plunge pools are ideal if you simply don’t have enough space in your yard for a large swimming pool.

You can get plunge pools that connect seamlessly with your outdoor entertaining area, and designs that easily fit into a corner – there are plenty of options available. Plunge pools are a great way to enhance your backyard, and they’ll help increase the value of your home as well. Prospective buyers want a home that is visually appealing, functional, and well-designed – a plunge pool can help you get a better sale price.

One of the biggest benefits of plunge pools is the depth. Typically shallower than other pool styles, with an average depth of 1.2 meters, plunge pools are ideal for children learning to swim.

Plunge pools also give you a tranquil and calming space where you can relax, and they’re ideal if you need to do water rehabilitation after an injury. Currently, in Canada, we offer our Nirvana design, with the popular Eden coming soon.
