There are plenty of options to consider when selecting your first pool – and it might be a shock to discover how many different types there are to choose from. For example, the plunge pool is a small but deep pool that would be ideal for lounging and luxury.

Here are just a few reasons why a plunge pool might be the right one for you.

1. They are great if you’re on a budget

If you want a pool but your budget doesn’t stretch too far, then a plunge pool might be exactly what you need – the installation tends to be much cheaper than that of a normal pool, and you don’t have to sacrifice your comfort in the process. Obviously, the exact price depends on the specific size you go for, and the construction material used, with fibreglass being much more cost-effective and quick to install.

Regardless, it will still be cheaper than a ‘typical’ pool with the same statistics, especially since they require far less water due to their size. On top of this, if you end up selling your property further down the road, the value can only go up if a pool’s included.

2. They don’t take up much space

On that note, if you don’t have the real estate or the planning permission for a large, swim-ready pool, then that does not mean that you need to give up your dream of luxury. Plunge pools, as mentioned above, come in several sizes but – as you can imagine given the name – the point of this type of pool is usually the depth, so they can still be compact.

A plunge pool fit for the whole family might only take up around 4 square metres of space, while having a depth of 1.7 metres, letting you enjoy a relaxing time either by yourself or with your loved ones without tearing out too much of your backyard. As a bonus, less space means they’re much easier to clean and maintain.

3. They are perfect for cooling you down

Most people who buy plunge pools do this because they need to chill out, figuratively and literally, after their busy days. The cold water could be a wonderful addition to your home – and even to your relaxation routine – especially if you’ve been feeling the country’s heat recently.

This doesn’t just help you relax, it also has numerous health benefits; if you’re a burgeoning athlete, the low temperatures are great at reducing inflammation after an intense session to make sure your recovery ends up being a lot more comfortable.
