Plunge pools are pools that are smaller than conventional swimming pools but larger than spas. They are designed to offer the same advantages of a swimming pool but in a smaller area. Unlike swimming pools, they are not meant to conform to a specific shape or size.
If you have a small backyard, even if it has an awkward design, you can get a plunge pool built. All you need is to contact a custom plunge pool builder to evaluate your outdoor space, learn about your aesthetic wishes and develop an appropriate plunge pool design to complement your home.
Because of their fluidity, they can be built into any shape, size, form or pattern to fit your space.
The average plunge pool is around 2 by 4 meters and 1.25 - 1.5 meters deep.
Depending on your families' needs you can choose to have a plunge pool with more exaggerated dimensions. Unlike spas, plunge pools are normally filled with cold water. This is in accordance with their main purpose which is to support cooling off and lounging.
Sometimes, depending on your needs, both cold and hot water features can be incorporated into the pool.

- Their small size means they tend to cost less.
