5 Reasons Why Plunge Pools Are Perfect For Outdoor Spaces

Plunge pools are growing in popularity for various reasons, but mainly due to the fact that they are faster and easier to install than traditional larger pools. On top of this, they are excellent for properties with limited outdoor space, which is becoming more common in Auckland. They are perfect for relaxing, wading, and water play, and share many similarities to a traditional pool. 

Our blog features images from Tiny Pools, a New Zealand owned and operated company who create beautiful concrete plunge pools. They have a selection of kit sets, which include three different sizes, making them suit any backyard. These are the Manu, Classic and Mini

1. Space Optimisation

Plunge pools, with their compact design, provide a solution for homeowners seeking to maximise their outdoor areas without sacrificing functionality. In an outdoor space that is not practical for fitting a traditional, large sized pool, plunge pools are the best option. Small spaces can be transformed into beautiful, functional spaces, combining with fire pits, decking and water features. Another great benefit of plunge pools in terms of space is that they can be tucked into a corner, or integrated into a deck, seamlessly blending into the landscape. 

2. Environmentally Friendly

A great aspect of plunge pools is that they are more environmentally friendly and cheaper to run than a traditional large pool. Being smaller, they require less water, chemicals and energy. For those who want to heat their pool, plunge pools are the best option as less heat is required. 

3. Low Maintenance Requirements

Larger pools can require a lot of time and money spent keeping them clean and looking good. Plunge pools are much easier to maintain, making them a better option for busy homeowners. Their smaller size means there is less water to treat and fewer chemicals needed to balance. Plunge pools allow for homeowners to spend more time enjoying their outdoor oasis and less time on maintenance tasks. 

4. Enhanced Aesthetics

Beyond their functional utility, plunge pools serve as captivating focal points that elevate the visual appeal of outdoor environments. Available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and finishes, these pools can be customised to complement any design aesthetic, from sleek and modern to rustic and natural. Whether integrated seamlessly into a landscape or positioned as a standalone feature, a well-designed plunge pool adds a touch of sophistication and luxury to any outdoor setting. 

The Manu pool, pictured below, is wonderful in the sense that the pool can be included as part of the pool fencing due to its height. This is extremely beneficial for the aesthetic of your landscape, as fencing can make spaces feel smaller, and create harsh unwanted lines. It also means that you spend less on fencing.

5. Reduced Costs

The cost of a plunge pool is determined by a range of factors, such as access to the site, the type of shell chosen, whether it is an above-ground or in-ground pool, as well as any additional features. Less money will also be spent on chemicals, replacing water and heating the pool. 

After reading this, we hope you feel inspired to maximise the potential of your landscape. Small spaces can be beautiful, functional places to create wonderful memories.
