Feel like summers are very short to enjoy your pool? Make every season, the summer season by opting for an indoor swimming pool installation. We, at Land-con, have worked on several indoor pool projects and we always encounter a few common questions from clients. With this blog, we wish to answer these questions for every potential indoor swimming pool fan.
What Are The Advantages Of Having an Indoor Pool?
1. Open no matter what season
An indoor pool, unlike the outdoor pools, does not limit your swimming to a particular season. You can enjoy swimming any day at any time without any worries or hassle.
2. Comparatively Less Maintenance
Outdoor pools need more maintenance as they are in contact with the debris. With an indoor pool, there are no such problems.
3. Less Use Of Chemicals
As there is no sunlight touching the indoor pool, the level of chlorine or other sanitizer remains the same. This will cut down your usage of chemicals.
What Are The Disadvantages Of Having An Indoor Pool?
1. Higher Cost Of Construction
An indoor swimming pool installation is similar to the outdoor pool but the cost that comes to building an appropriate space for an indoor swimming pool is high. You can estimate the total cost to be around $200,000 or above, as you need to build a new structure for it and also have to install a dehumidifier to protect the structure from moisture.
2. No Sunbathing
As it’s an indoor pool, there is no direct sunlight coming in. Due to this reason, you cannot sunbathe near the pool.
3. More on energy cost
The energy cost for running the dehumidifier and a heater for water and the room will be high.
A Frequent Question: Build now and enclose later?
Many people get scared of spending a huge amount of money in just one go. Thus, they wish to plan their resources by investing in a swimming pool installation now, and then build a structure later to enclose it. Yes, it is possible. A proper project planning makes it happen. If we anticipate and estimate the size of a structure while installing a swimming pool, then we can lay the foundation for a future structure. This also helps us to decide on the electrical or water requirements for the future enclosure.
What Sort Of Accessories To Choose For An Indoor Pool?
While discussing the disadvantages, we have mentioned what is required in the structure to keep the structure stable. Here, we are mentioning the must-have accessories that your Indoor Pool will need:
1. Pool Heater
This is very essential to maintain the perfect water temperature in any season. As the sunlight does not fall into the structure, you need to have a pool heater to keep your water warm.
2. Automatic Pool Covers
You still have a choice to install an automatic pool cover for an outdoor pool but this is an imperative need for an indoor pool. There can never be a question as an indoor pool always needs a cover. Indoor pools emit moisture in the structure. Automatic pool covers help the indoor pool to retain the moisture and eliminate evaporation. This helps the water to remain in the pool than in the air. This will also help you to cut down a little on energy cost that goes in running the dehumidifier.
Which Type Of Pool Will Be Better For An Indoor Swimming Pool Installation?
Just like an Outdoor swimming pool installation, indoor swimming pool installation also has three options:
B. Vinyl Liner
You can choose any one among these, depending on your budget and requirements.
Feels Too Expensive?
The indoor pool is like a luxury that seems unrealistic for the mass. Thus, an outdoor pool is not at all a bad option to enjoy the pool days. Just add a pool heater to keep the water warm in winters and you are good to go.
