Read on to learn more about plunge pools and see if they are the best option for your lifestyle.
Plunge Pool Benefits
If you dream of having a swimming pool to cool off on hot summer days, but don’t have the backyard space to install one, a plunge pool may be a great option. Plunge pools are becoming quite popular among homeowners because they offer:
- Lower costs
- Less maintenance
- Design Features
- Reduced water requirements
- Smaller size
They are also an excellent choice for people who enjoy jogging or working out, as a dip into the plunge pool is refreshing and invigorating – especially after an intense workout. See examples of plunge pools in our Small Inground Pool Gallery.
What’s the Difference between a Hot Tub and Plunge Pool?
Although plunge pools can be confused with hot tubs because of their smaller size, the key differences between a hot tub and plunge pool are the water temperature and the depth. While hot tubs boast hot water, plunge pools are cold, offering relief in the summer. New “chiller” heat pumps can help keep the water temperatures down even in the heat of summer and the deeper depth profile allows users to immerse their whole body in a size-constrained space.
Some homeowners choose to have a hot tub and plunge pool next to each other for cold plunge therapy. Cold plunge therapy has existed for thousands of years and is believed to reduce, pain, muscle inflammation, and expedite recovery. Aside from offering cold plunge therapy benefits, the plunge pool is an excellent way to unwind after a long day.
