A swimming pool is something that can be enjoyed by all the family. Whatever the age, interests, or fitness level of your family members, everybody can enjoy taking a dip in the pool. A swimming pool can also be a great social area, crossing the age gap and adding another valuable, fun, activity the entire family can participate in and enjoy.
Finding a great family swimming pool isn’t as straightforward as it may seem at first, though. There are a lot of factors that go into selecting the best swimming pool that the whole family can enjoy. You want a quality swimming pool product that can stand up to the rigours of family life – something that is safe and secure for the kids and can go with them and your family and something that fits the design and style of your backyard.
Family pools aren’t just a fun way to keep the kids entertained, either. They also make a great way to keep them, and you, active and exercising without it feeling like hard work. A good quality fibreglass swimming pool will also add aesthetic value to your home, making a swimming pool a good investment for both the present and the future. Read on to find out some of the criteria you should be looking for in a great family pool.
For most families throughout New Zealand, the ideal swimming pool will be a multi-purpose pool that allows ample space for everybody to enjoy their favourite activities. Large models of pools such as the Atlantis, Grandeur, or Panama lap pool are perfect for the whole family to enjoy and offer plenty of space for everybody to be using the pool at once. Of course, not all backyards have the space available to fit the larger models of the Narellan Pools range, which is why we have designed a variety of shells perfectly suited to fit smaller backyards. Models like the Eden are specially designed to fit smaller backyards or for those who want to leave space for other backyard activities. Our smaller models still offer the same versatility and fun as our larger shells, just in a more compact size. Keep in mind that this can limit the number of people that can be in the pool at once. The only type of pool in our range that is not made for the family to swim lengths in, is our spa pool range, e.g. Neptune Spa, as these pools are designed more for relaxing in the warm bubbling water.
You should also give some thought to the depth and styling of the pool shell. Traditional rectangular shells do make for a good multi-purpose space for the whole family, and we offer shells like our Serene model that take things a step further and have dedicated areas for different activities.
A good family pool will have all the right accessories to make the pool experience as fun and safe as possible. Lighting and heating additions are fantastic for family pools, keeping them brightly lit to create a different look and feel, and staving off the evening chills when the kids want to take a dip after school. LED lighting can also be equipped with colour changing options which the kids are sure to love. You should also think carefully about your choice of pool surroundings as some materials are more slip-resistant than others, and some require less ongoing maintenance in comparison to others.
Water features and jets are always a favourite with kids as well and can make a relaxing feature in the backyard for the adults. Some additions such as pool floats and toys, while not as big a decision as the pool design itself, are just as important for a good family pool. Finally, think about what seating and out-of-pool areas you want to have for when you are by the pool keeping an eye on the kids.
