Outdoor living is synonymous with the Australian lifestyle but as block sizes become smaller and the family home is occupies a greater amount of space, there is very little room remaining for a conventional swimming pool. Many people believe they are unable to build a swimming pool, as they simply don’t have the room. Due to the flexibility in design of a pre-engineered steel pool, Albatross Pools can custom design a plunge pool to make the most of the limited area you have available.
Custom Design Small Pools
A plunge pool is a custom-designed swimming pool engineered to fit seamlessly into the confines of a limited outdoor space. With considered holistic approach, a plunge pool can be a pleasing aesthetic addition to your garden creating a tranquil and serene feature, or a plunge pool can also be a point of entertainment providing a fun place for escape and relaxation for your family and friends. Best of all, due to the compact nature of the a plunge pool, they are extremely easy and low cost to maintain and heat year round.
Top Five Benefits of a Plunge Pool Design:
- Small plunge pools are ideally suited to maximise the limited area available in small spaces, i.e. courtyards, small backyards or front yards, side of the home
- Containing up to 20,000L worth of water (compared to a standard average pool containing 45,000L), a small plunge pool is cost effective to operate (power and chemical consumption) compared to standard pool running costs
- Alternate heating options (including gas pool heating and electric pool heating) are cost effective to run year round on a small plunge pool, delivering year-round use and the best value from your investment
- Featuring a smaller surface area than a traditional sized pool, a small plunge pool is low maintenance
- Small pools offer increased multifunctional options beyond simply being a place to plunge into on a hot summer’s day. Depending on the enhancement options, a plunge pool can be a spa in winter, a place for year round fitness, provide hydrotherapy (with the assistance of Swim Jets or even a harness for the more budget conscious) or even a stunning illuminated water feature when not in use
Plunge Pool Sizes
A plunge pool is typically any small pool up to 5 metres long and 3 metres wide. Similarly to the design, the dimensions will be determined by the small space available. Depending on the client brief, a pool smaller than 3 metres long and 1.5 metres wide can become impractical from a usability point of view.
Plunge Pool Design
The design of a plunge pool will be determined by the space available. In most cases the proposed plunge pool area won’t be a uniform shape whereby a square, rectangular or circular pool would suit. If the proposed plunge pools area is triangular in nature, a triangle plunge pool may be worth considering and is definitely achievable with the Albatross pool system. Or, if the proposed plunge pools area incorporates a boundary fence, perhaps one side of the pool could be straight whilst the others are curved to some degree resembling a b-shape plunge pool, a semi circular plunge pool or perhaps something completely freeform. The plunge pool design is virtually limitless with an Albatross swimming pool.
Whether it is a small unusual space or extremely limited access, Albatross Pools specialise in custom designed plunge pools to suit the site conditions and desired lifestyle.
