Do you have a small backyard, or limited space to put in a pool? Are you concerned that you just don’t have the time for pool maintenance? Or do you have concerns about the costs associated with maintaining a pool? If any of these sound like you, you’re in luck. A small inground pool may be just the answer you’re looking for. Here are three advantages of choosing a small inground pool for your home.
Takes up Less Space
Whether you have a small yard, or only want to use a portion of your yard for a pool, a small inground pool can be the answer. Working together with your pool builder, you can find ways to make the best use of whatever space you have available to accommodate a pool. This will also include the type and shape of the pool, as well as the surrounding spaces.
Easier to Maintain
With a smaller inground pool, you have less to physically maintain, which means your time is not going to be occupied longer than you desire. Small pools have
- Less amount of water to filter
- Lower chemical demands
- Less surface water to skim
- Smaller areas to scrub
If minimal maintenance requirements are a top priority, discuss this with your pool builder so they can advise you on the right type of pool for minimal maintenance.
With smaller pools, your expenses will be lower. This is because smaller pools require:
- less electricity, as there is less water to run through the pump
- less water to fill the pool, and to top off the water level
- fewer chemicals to maintain water quality
- less cleaning supplies as you have a smaller area to clean
With less strain on your utilities budget, as well as lower amounts required for chemicals and cleaning supplies, smaller pools can cost considerably less to run efficiently.
By adding a small inground pool, you get the enjoyment of a pool with the added benefits of lower maintenance time and lower costs.
