It’s summer and nothing can be better than staying outside. We all care about our patios, balconies, pools and gardens. Don’t have a swimming pool yet? Build one! Even if you have a small terrace or garden, you can always place a plunge pool there. Whatever your outdoor style, a plunge pool will definitely fit.
What is a plunge pool?
A plunge pool is a small diameter swimming pool that is used for wading in warmer climates or near saunas. Their smaller surface area and simple cover reduce evaporative water losses and the need to refill drinking water. Their popularity has increased with concerns and needs for domestic water conservation, more sustainable landscaping, and reducing resource consumption through energy efficient landscaping.
What plunge pools can you do
Take a look at your garden and decide where you want it to be and see what size pool you can afford. There are also different shapes of plunge pools. If your outside area is extremely small, put a small square plunge pool inside. The most popular option for any garden is a long and narrow plunge pool that often only fits one person – it’s that tight! Another option is a round pool that is great for wading. It’s like a hot tub, but cool to weather the heat. You can make such a round plunge pool out of a large tank yourself if you are a DIY enthusiast. If you want something a little more eye-catching, take a kidney-shaped plunge pool and add a waterfall for fun. If you have kids, put some steps in the pool to make it more comfortable – you can sit on them when it’s hot. Your kids will love to stay or swim in such a pool, so let them have fun.
Add a deck around your table. It can be made of wood, stone, concrete, or any other material that comes to mind. Get inspiration to design your own plunge pool and enjoy feeling cool on hot summer days.
