Designing the Perfect Plunge Pool for the UK

Compass Pools, a specialist in the Design and Installation of Plunge Pools across the UK.

If you don’t have the space in your garden for a full size swimming pool, Compass offers high quality plunge pools that could be perfect for you. Our range of small plunge pools are highly suited to the more compact garden and we have years of experience installing pools at properties across the UK. If you would like to learn more about the range of pools we have available, please contact us today.

Why choose a Compass Plunge Pool?

Unlike traditional plunge pools made from concrete, Compass pools are delivered to your property in one piece. The shell of the pool is then craned into a previously excavated hole – this makes the whole process very quick and simple, especially if you don’t have a lot of space to work with. Our pools are unique in the UK; made using a ceramic composite, they are highly durable and non-porous, meaning they exceed traditional pools in terms of lifespan and cleanliness.

Advantages of Installing a Plunge Pool in a UK City Garden

Choosing to have a plunge pool installed in your garden comes with a range of benefits:

  • The chance to have a pool in a smaller garden
  • Increase the value of your property
  • A great place to exercise
  • Somewhere to cool down after a hot day
  • A relaxation area for you and your family

A variety of options

Our plunge pools can be customised to your needs with a full range of options to provide you with the pool of your dreams. One of the most popular additions is a swim jet – this pump a steady stream of water at you while you swim, which means you can swim for exercise even if you have very limited space.

You may also wish to add a sliding pool cover which can help you make the most of your available space, as you can use the covered pool for tables and chairs when it is not in use. When you have limited garden space, this can be enormously beneficial.

It is also important to look into heating your pool. In the UK, having a pool without heating will inevitably mean it is less pleasant to use in the colder months, so this is a priority for many of our customers. Typically plunge pools are installed in gardens that are an extension of the living space, and it’s not unheard of to have a plunge pool that can be used as hot tub on Christmas day. A modern heat pump will also be able to cool your plunge pool to have a chilled dip on a hot day. 

Install a Plunge Pool in a small garden.

When installing a Compass plunge pool in a smaller garden, probably the largest challenge comes in digging the hole for the shell to sit in. We exclusively install in-ground pools and if there is no access for a digger, we made need to get creative, using a conveyer belt though the house or craning an excavator over the top of the property. Alternatively, it might be possible to build a raised area within the garden for the pool to sit in.

Standard stages of an installation

  1. Excavate the hole
  2. Install the pool shell
  3. Plumb in the shell
  4. Backfill
  5. Coping stones
  6. Filtration and heating

How much Does a Plunge Pool Cost?

The typical cost for a plunge pool starts at around £25,000 but can vary enormously depending on your choice of pool as well as the additional features and the challenges involved in the build. One of the major contributing factors is whether there is space in the garden to get machinery in to dig the hole, and if a crane can be used to move the pool into the garden.
