What to Know About Plunge Pools

Swimming pools provide a great way for the family to spend time together in an enjoyable way on summer days. However, not all yards provide the proper amount of space for a full-size pool as well as space for everything else you want to do with the space. You may think you can’t get a pool, but you have options. Plunge pools provide the perfect solution for a refreshing and attractive pool when your property has limited space. 

In this article, we will cover:

What Is a Plunge Pool?

A plunge pool refers to a compact pool that doesn’t reach full-size pool dimensions in length and width. Most of these pools come in a rectangle or square shape and their dimensions measure roughly 8 feet wide and anywhere from 10 – 18 feet long. These in-ground pools usually have a depth of 4 feet of room temperature water or deeper. 

While most meet these standards, you can ask about unique shapes, increased depth, and above-ground options. 

Benefits of a Plunge Pool

Why would you want to get a plunge pool? The benefits may convince you to learn more by speaking to a professional at Precision Pools & Spas to see if you can accommodate one at your home. 

1. Less Pool, Less Problems

Due to the smaller size, they do come with some benefits. These pools cost less to build than standard pools, and builders finish much more quickly. They also require less maintenance once functional. 

2. Increase Value of Home

Give your home that extra wow factor homebuyers look for when buying a new home, especially if you fit your pool in a thoughtful location on your property and use it to enhance the aesthetic appeal to your yard. You won’t necessarily get a full return on your investment, but you also get the pleasure of enjoying the pool while you still live in your home. 

3. Relax and Cool Off With Family and Friends

The main benefit of a plunge pool is the ability to enjoy yourself with friends and family on hot days, especially if you didn’t think your yard could accommodate it. You can’t swim laps, but you can cool off and relax, enjoying the weather and good company. Texas gets hot, but it becomes more bearable when you get to beat the heat in the crisp water.
