Important Features of Plunge Pools

During summer, cooling down through plunge pool is ideal. This is where you can relax and enjoy the water. Plunge pools are smaller in width, larger than a spa, but smaller than regular swimming pools. You can use these pools to relax, spend time with your family, enjoy the sunlight or can have them built for aesthetic purposes. If you are still thinking about the pros and cons, here are some of the common features of a plunge pool.


Plunge pools are a good source to create artificial waterfalls. You can either spend time under the waterfall, or simply enjoy the aesthetic beauty of it. You can re-circulate the same water to create an artificial waterfall and save water too. Re-circulation creates a natural waterfall-like environment in your house or your commercial building.


Plunge pools also have an additional feature of exercising. For e.g. if you are thinking of taking swim laps, but don’t really have the place to install a swimming pool, you can consider plunge pool designs. You can get some resistance jets in the water to be able to swim in one place, or do the laps without them as well. You can also do other exercises in the pool.


Artificial plunge pools, created by the application of best architectural principles are high on sustainability quotient. They don’t damage anything, don’t spoil the environment, don’t overuse electricity to heat/cool, and look natural. The plunge pool design can be loaded with great features and is eco-friendly too.

Lighting and heating

When it comes to plunge pool design, lighting and heating form an important part. If your pool is directly under the sun, without any trees, you would really not need a complicated heating system for your pool. If not, you will have to buy a heating system. If you want to save some money, you can try out solar heating panels.

For lighting, stay away from using weak or cheap wires for lighting the area. There will always be a chance of electric shock and other hazards. For this reason, you can focus on safe systems like fibre optics, which light the pool sufficiently during nights, and are also comparatively safer. Whatever be the system of lighting and heating, always keep the location and actual requirement in mind before investing.
