You might be asking yourself after reading the subject of this article, what is a SPOOL? A spool is a combination of two words; pool and spa. Spools are much smaller than standard pools, the measurements vary but roughly about 10 to 16 feet in length and 6 to 8 feet in width, this is the reason why they are also commonly referred to as small pools. You can think of a spool as the best of both worlds, combining features of a spa and a pool. It is important that you consider installing a small pool in your Burbank backyard (although small backyards are all over LA!)
This may sound interesting to you due to various circumstances. For instance; the backyard is smaller and cannot fit a regular pool, the budget for installing a standard pool is too high, you want the versatility it offers just to mention a few. Your new spool project can bring doubts and thoughts from, can I still have a water feature? Can powerful jets be added to it? What if LED lights are not an option? Perhaps, you can have all you imagined such as but not limited to:
- Water feature
- Swim jets (current generation system)
- LED lighting
- Built-in seating around the perimeter
- Small but efficient heating system
- Powerful spa jets
Exercising in Small Pools
Going for a swim in a spool is not the same as swimming in a regular size pool. This is because small pools can come with powerful jets that make a swirling current against which to swim in. This makes it a full workout in a small swimming space. But when using a small pool to work out your muscles and cardiovascular organs, the temperature should be low to avoid quick muscle fatigue. The best way to use the spool is to have morning swims for complete workouts, then later in the evening heat it up to create the perfect temperature for relaxing, and therapeutic purposes.
All Including the Luxury
Most homeowners take a pool construction seriously since it is an important investment. Installing a small pool in your Los Angeles backyard is simply more fun. Going small doesn’t necessary compromise the luxury.
Great for Any Special Event and Weather
A small pool offers enough depth to relax in during the summer season but you can use it as a spa during the cold months. Spools are less expensive because of less maintenance as well as their size.
However attractive the small pools are, they are not for everyone. It is advisable to locate one and test it out before settling for it. If one of your family members or friends has one then it would beneficial for you when making the decision. You can easily come to the realization that you need a regular sized pool to complement the small pool. Then again, you might find out that a hot spa is all you want to relieve your body of tension and all the other health benefits that accompany a small pool. Also, for those lap lovers, committing for a small pool would give you the opposite effect of satisfaction, do your research and compare the pros and cons.
