Small Plunge Pools: Big Impact in Compact Spaces

Plunge pools provide a stylish and practical option to cool off and invigorate. Here’s why these miniature marvels are making a big splash despite their petite dimensions.

A plunge pool is a scaled-down version of a traditional swimming pool. While a swimming pool is designed to accommodate laps and strokes, a plunge pool’s primary purpose is for soaking and relaxation. They are often deeper than their width would suggest, allowing you to submerge yourself fully while enjoying the therapeutic benefits of cool water.

Why You Should Consider a Small Plunge Pool

Space Savers: If your garden lacks room for a sprawling inground pool, a plunge pool offers a fantastic alternative. Their compact nature means they can integrate effortlessly into patios, small urban gardens, and even unused corners of your outdoor space.

Versatility: The beauty of a plunge pool lies in its multi-purpose nature. Use it as a cold plunge after a sauna or steam session for health benefits, as a refreshing haven during a heatwave, or even as a water feature adding a touch of tranquillity to your garden.

Ease of Installation: In comparison to large inground pools, plunge pools generally have a quicker, less intrusive installation process. Some even come prefabricated, offering a true plug-and-play pool experience.

Reduced Maintenance: The reduced water volume of a plunge pool naturally leads to decreased maintenance. This translates to less time spent cleaning and balancing the water, and more time to actually enjoy it.

Lower Cost: With smaller sizes come smaller price tags. Plunge pools offer a cost-effective way to make your aquatic dreams come true and generally require less ongoing energy costs.

Design Considerations When Choosing Your Plunge Pool

Shape: Plunge pools come in a surprising array of shapes. You’ll find traditional rectangles, sleek ovals, and even creative bespoke designs to fit your aesthetic preferences.

Material: Choose from robust concrete, which offers supreme durability, or prefabricated models made of fibreglass or other composite materials for faster installation. If you’re eyeing a modern look, metallic plunge pools are a stunning and unexpected choice.

Features: Enhance your plunge pool with additions like built-in seating for lounging, hydrotherapy jets for massage, or even lighting systems to create a truly atmospheric experience.

Heating: Although traditionally enjoyed for cold plunges, consider extending your enjoyment with a heating system. This lets you use the pool comfortably in cooler temperatures.

Transforming Your Outdoor Space

A plunge pool, though small, has the potential to completely transform your outdoor area. With clever design and landscaping, it becomes a stunning centrepiece for relaxation and entertainment. Here are some landscaping ideas:

  • Tropical Escape: Surround your plunge pool with lush greenery, ferns, and palms to create your own personal oasis.
  • Minimalist Zen: Opt for smooth stones, clean lines, and a serene water feature to turn your garden into a minimalist, Zen-like retreat.
  • Integrated with Decking: Build a deck around your plunge pool, seamlessly blending it into your outdoor living area for a cohesive look.
  • Sunken Haven: Creating a slightly sunken area for your plunge pool adds a layer of visual interest and a sense of privacy.

Maintenance Tips for Your Plunge Pool

While plunge pools are generally low-maintenance, some essential care is required to keep your water sparkling and fresh:

  • Circulation and Filtration: A good filtration and circulation system is crucial. Invest in a setup that is adequate for the size of your pool.
  • Water Chemicals: Regularly check and balance your pool’s chemistry, including pH levels, alkalinity, and sanitiser levels.
  • Debris Removal: Use a skimmer net or leaf rake to keep leaves and other debris out of your plunge pool.
  • Cover: When not in use, cover your plunge pool to keep debris out and minimise evaporation.

With their compact size, versatility, and style, plunge pools are poised to become the hottest new trend. If you’re looking for a way to embrace the joy of water within a limited space, a small plunge pool may just be the perfect solution.
