It’s summer and nothing can be better than staying outside. We all take care of our terraces, balconies, pools and gardens. Don’t have a swimming pool yet? build one! Even if you have a small patio or garden, you can always place a plunge pool there. Regardless of your outdoor style, a plunge pool will definitely fit.
What is a plunge pool?
A plunge pool is a small-diameter pool used for wading in warmer climates or near saunas. Their smaller surface area and ease of coverage reduce evaporative water losses and the need to refill potable water. Their popularity has increased with concerns and needs for domestic water conservation, more sustainable landscaping, and reducing resource use through energy efficient landscaping.
What plunge pools can you do?
Take a look at your backyard and decide where you want it to be and what size pool you can afford. There are also different forms of plunge pools. If your outdoor space is extremely small, put a small square plunge pool in it. The most popular option for any backyard is a long and narrow plunge pool that often only fits one person—it’s so narrow! Another option is a round pool, which is great for wading. It’s like a jacuzzi but cool to beat the heat. If you are a DIY enthusiast, you can make such a round plunge pool even from a large tank. If you want something more eye-catching, take a kidney-shaped plunge pool and add a waterfall for fun. If you have children, put some steps in the pool to make it more comfortable – they 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. Find inspiration to design your own plunge pool and enjoy feeling cool on hot summer days.
