It’s a simple fact of life and living. House block sizes are becoming a whole lot smaller with the house occupying a lot of the space. So you may be wondering, is there an option to put in a pool to keep the whole family cool and happy during those hot summer days? Some think there’s just not enough room. Well think again.
With flexibility in design of a pre-engineered steel pool, Albatross Pools can custom design a plunge pool to fit in perfectly to a limited space. We offer a complete range of flexible plunge pool designs, or the Courtyard Pool collection as we prefer to call them.
Of course the design of your pool will be determined by what space you have available. In lots of cases it won’t be a uniform shape, so a square or rectangular pool would fit in perfectly. Even if there is a triangular shape, that can be accommodated too. Or, for instance if the area you have in mind incorporates a boundary fence, you could give great consideration to having one side of the pool straight while the others are curved resembling a b-shape plunge pool, a semi-circular pool or perhaps something completely freeform. You just have so many options when you’re think plunge pools.
When you are planning your plunge pool, it’s a good idea to plan the entry steps and bench seats. In regards to pool size, any plunge pool can be up to 5m meters long and 3 meters wide. Obviously the dimensions will determine what you can work with you come to designing your plunge pool..
Although limited in size, a plunge pool has so many great things going for it. Let’s look at heating. With the small amount of water needed it would be a great idea to incorporate a solar pool heating system along with some form of demand heating system such as a gas pool heater or pool heat pump. This combination is an absolute winner because it enables you to swim all year round.
Swim jets is another great idea. If you’re into fitness, high powered independent swim jets can be included in the design of the pool giving you plenty of resistance to do laps on a regular basis. Now with your plunge pool, it’s a good idea to have a pool cover especially if it’s going to be used all year round. A pool cover not only protects, but ensures that the heat is retained.
Take the plunge. If you have a small space or limited access, come and talk to the team at Albatross pools for some inspiration. They’ll come up with a design that’s not only clever and contemporary, but right on the money.
