As property sizes and square footage increase, the natural result is the shrinking of backyard space. This isn’t a problem most of the time, and most properties still have ample space in the yard where you can enjoy the sun and relax, but if you’ve got your heart set on a swimming pool things start to get more complex.
Traditionally swimming pools occupy a lot of space, in many cases becoming the dominant garden feature in even the biggest backyards. A compact pool, on the other hand, offers all the same benefits of your own backyard oasis, with the same high-quality construction and features, but at a fraction of the real estate cost.
Although they are the obvious, and possibly the only choice, for smaller backyards, compact swimming pools come with a number of benefits that make them a great solution regardless of the space you have available. They are especially well-suited to those customers who are both environmentally conscious and want to keep long-term costs down.
More and more people are trying to do their bit for the environment by living in an environmentally conscious way. Compact pools are great for helping to keep your carbon footprint as low as possible while still being able to enjoy the water in your own backyard. Requiring less water to fill, fewer chemicals to keep clean, and less electricity to heat (they can even be heated via solar panel), compact pools have a significant environmental saving over larger versions.
If you want to enjoy your swimming pool for years to come you will have to maintain it regularly. Keeping your swimming pool clean is important to your enjoyment — nobody wants to swim in a dirty pool — but it’s also a key factor in extending the lifespan of your pool. With a compact pool’s lower water volume, cleaning and maintenance becomes not only easier (less water to empty and replace) but cheaper too.
Easier to heat, easier to fill, easier to clean. Compact pools require less of everything from water, to power, to cleaning chemicals; all of which translates directly into reduced costs both in the short-term and more importantly in the long-term.
With the reduced costs in heating, a compact pool is perfect for using all year round. In the summer you have a relaxing swimming pool to cool off in and in the winter, turn on the heating and you have your very own hot spring to take the bite off the cold evenings.
A compact pool, by definition, takes up less space. That means it can still leave plenty of space for other landscaping or backyard areas. Whether you want to design a relaxing seating area around the pool or have an area to do some gardening on the weekends, a compact pool will leave you plenty of space.
