Indoor Pools Collection
Indoor pools offer the benefit of year-round swimming for those who live in a cold climate or a region where it rains frequently. They also provide more privacy and create an optimum space for play, exercise, and entertainment.
Once you've made the decision to invest in an indoor swimming pool, the first thing you'll need to do is hire a professional who specializes in indoor pool construction. An experienced builder will be familiar with the unique factors involved in building a pool indoors and will have the knowledge and skills to manage these issues before they become problems. They'll often work alongside an architect and HVAC engineer to ensure your pool is built to code and all permits are in order.
Whether you are converting an existing room, renovating a garage, or adding to your home, there is an indoor pool solution to suit any design preference and budget. Your construction team will interview you early in the planning stages to assess your needs for the space and determine the best solutions for your lifestyle. For many reasons, including an indoor pool as part of the overall design and construction of a new home or renovation project is the best option because the area is easily accessible and the design of the pool enclosure can be coordinated with the rest of the home-both inside and out. But, if you want to install a pool in an existing room, don't hesitate to move forward. Your architect and builder will help you determine if the room can accommodate the size and shape of pool you desire as well as the equipment and electrical controls. They will also know if the home's foundation is capable of supporting the weight of a filled structure and where vapor barriers need to be installed on the interior walls.
An indoor pool room must be heated and cooled just like any other room in the home, but with a twist: You have to effectively regulate the pool's water temperature while also stabilizing the room's climate. By simply keeping the room temperature two degrees above the water temperature and monitoring the amount of time water features run, you will help control excessive evaporation and humidity.
The use of an automatic pool cover is another key way to control an indoor pool environment and can reduce evaporation by 50 percent. You should also consider indoor plants: they thrive on moisture and can thus improve the indoor pool room's air quality.
An indoor pool can blend with the existing home or be a completely separate structure that is customized to meet your objectives. Your designer and builder will review your goals and establish the best course of action. A popular indoor pool style is a conservatory with glass roofing, sliding glass doors, and walls of windows. This creates the feeling of being outdoors on a warm sunny day-even when it is below freezing outside! With the addition of palm trees, waterfalls, and a waterslide, the space can be transformed into a tropical oasis, providing a year-round family vacation.
Another option is to create a relaxing spa retreat inside the home, complete with a sauna, and exercise equipment. Or it can be an extension of your living room and feature comfortable seating and dining areas for entertaining or lounging poolside with a book.
So, whether you're looking for exercise, family fun, or a unique entertainment space, having your own indoor pool will provide you with a personal place to enjoy the pleasures of water, no matter the season or weather.
