What to Consider Before Buying a Fibreglass Plunge Pool
Mar 1, 2023

For many Australian homeowners, however, space is at a premium, and fitting a swimming pool into their backyard can seem like it would present a challenge—a swimming pool is a large structure that requires a large backyard, does it not? Fortunately, with the Narellan Pools plunge pool range, the pleasure of swimming pool ownership can be a reality in even the smallest backyards.

Consider Your Budget

The first thing to consider when you start your journey to owning a plunge pool is how much you have available to spend. There are pool options available to suit most budgets, however, having a good idea of your spending limits will allow you and your local Narellan Pools Builder to formulate the best solution that fulfils your needs without going over budget.

Seek Out Information

There are a lot of different factors that go into designing the right plunge pool for you. While we don’t expect our clients to have an in-depth knowledge of the inner workings and design of swimming pools—that’s our job—having a basic understanding of the process and options will enable you to better discuss your needs with your consultant. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about things you are unsure about; your consultant will be more than happy to answer any queries you have.

Pool Shell Size

Plunge pools are smaller and more compact than traditional swimming pools, making them the ideal solution for those with limited space. They are, however, still available in several different sizes, generally designed for the number of people that will be using them. A large pool not only takes up more space but will also be more costly to install and operate. There is no point in buying a pool designed for a dozen people if you only intended to have two to four people in the pool at a given time.

The intended usage of your swimming pool will also have a big impact on the size and style of the pool. Plunge pools are well suited for relaxing, hosting, playing, and gentle aqua-aerobic type exercises, but if you want to perform more intensive lap type swimming, a lap pool or traditional swimming pool design may be a better option. That said, you can still swim laps in a plunge pool if you invest in swim jets.

Local regulations may also be a limiting factor as they often dictate how close a swimming pool can be to both the property and property boundaries. The smaller footprint of a plunge pool makes them an ideal option when other, larger, pool designs would be impossible due to building restrictions.

Materials and Colour

At Narellan Pools, we specialise in high-quality fibreglass pool shells, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other material considerations to make when designing your pool space. The pool surrounds are available in a number of different materials, each with its own unique aesthetic, so carefully consider the look you are aiming to achieve. In addition to the surrounding materials, our pool shells are available in a number of different colour options. Think carefully about the colour and material options you would like for your swimming pool and whether you want them to match the interior of your home, creating a seamless blend in style, or stand as something different and unique.
