Now that you’re ending the pool season, and you’re lamenting the fact that you have to close up your pool for the winter, you may be wishing that your pool could stay open for longer. And while it might be a little too late for this season, you should take this time to reflect on why a heated pool is the best solution to this problem. Obviously, building an indoor pool, while useful for year-round swimming, is a much bigger project. But heating your pool is relatively simple in comparison and comes with many benefits. Read on to find out all about them.
Even keeping your pool slightly warmer over the course of the winter can prevent the water from freezing. This is a dreaded fear of many pool owners; freezing water can damage pipes, filters and tile. And it’s not always a smart idea to drain the water for the season, so sometimes, freezing is the only option. When you keep your water liquid when your pool is closed, you aren’t running the risk of frost damage.
A heated pool can add to your home’s value. Potential buyers will see the ability to swim year-round as a huge plus. For those who are looking for a home with a pool, a heated one is going to attract them immediately. Most will be willing to pay a little over budget just because they won’t have to make the upgrade themselves. In such a competitive housing market, this can really give you a good edge.
Safer for All
Children and the elderly are actually at risk when they swim in non-heated pools. The water can get cold enough to put them at a higher chance of contracting hypothermia. If you are a new pool owner and you aren’t sure when you should close the pool, a late swim could be potentially dangerous for this reason. To keep your entire family safe while swimming, a heated pool is a great investment and safety net.
