Few of us can boast of a huge pool on the site. These are usually modest designs. And just swimming, taking cool baths is boring. Our tips site at the beginning of summer decided to offer you options for additions, improvements to your regular pool that will provide new entertainment.
The first thing you want to add to your pool is a hydromassage. Yes, a very pleasant procedure. If you do not yet have any pool on the site or there is an ordinary frame, you may think about buying a hot tub. They are usually designed for a maximum of six people, you can install it anywhere on a flat area. Alternatively, you can add nozzles to the walls of an existing pool, in one part, not everywhere.
The second option is to make the water heated so that you can use the pool in winter. Extreme? Yes, especially if your pool is roofless and open to all wind and snow. But how interesting! The cost of heating water, of course, will be, as well as the purchase, installation of the entire system. By the way, modern water heating systems for outdoor pools work even in the harsh conditions of Yakutia..
The third way is to make a slide. Even adults, not to mention children, will slide down it into the water with pleasure. You can buy a ready-made slide, there are very different options, including for frame pools, to which the portal has dedicated a separate article. Or you can do it yourself. The easiest way is if your pool is on a slope. You can dig a trench to the pool, cover it with PVC film and water it with a sliding hose. If there is no slope, the slide can be built from boards, with a ladder.
The fourth way is to add counterflow. This device will create a strong countercurrent 30 centimeters deep and 2 meters wide. So you can swim “long distances” while staying in one place. A great option if the pool is small, but you want to ask yourself a serious physical activity. The counterflow can be stationary or hinged. The second option is a little more noisy, but it is easily installed on an already finished pool and removed for the winter.
The fifth way to diversify and improve your pool is to add a fountain. One or more. There are models that are simply attached to the side of the finished pool. And even backlit, as in the photo. Get some extra fun. Only for the children’s area, a fountain with a low power will be needed.
We have devoted a separate article to infinity pools. They look really amazing. Therefore, if you have a slope on the site or a high terrace, do not miss the opportunity to make such a pool, seemingly endless..
A seventh way to make the pool a more interesting part of the site is to take care of the area around it. It’s simple – make the pool part of a shared recreation area. With sun loungers, parasols or awnings, garden furniture. So that after swimming you can not go to the house to rest, but stay in the fresh air. It looks very interesting, for example, a swimming pool integrated with a summer kitchen, so that by reaching out from the water you can immediately take a drink or fruit.
Finally, one of the most expensive but original ways to make the pool better is to equip a recreation area surrounded by water on three sides. Expensive, yes, but the rest will turn into something elite, not for everyone.
Don’t you want to drastically change anything in your pool or just don’t have extra money? Then take care of the pleasant little things. Ball and circles for children, floating bar for adults. And the pool will already provide you with new opportunities for entertainment.
