Three Things You Can Do With Your Pool During Winter
May 18, 2021
With winter being just around the block, preparing for this season is something every Australian must do. Most Australians have been dreading this, but this does not have to be the case for you!
In Sydney, winter lasts from June to August, with average temperatures dropping between 8.8 – 17°C. During these months, most Australians would often take this time to visit the mountains, participate in the winter festival, or opt to winterise their backyard pools.
If you’re a homebody, you can also choose to hang out by your pool and use it all year round. You may be wondering how, so we have compiled a list of suggestions to help you still enjoy your pool during winter:
1. Take a cold plunge.
While some people enjoy the benefits of a cold plunge or swim in a cold lake or ocean, you can get the same benefits from your pool! If you decide to keep your pool open all year, you can use it as a cold water plunge or even a cold water swim if you prefer.
Plunging in a cold pool is a perfect idea, especially after soaking in a spa, to help in avoiding feeling lethargic. Aside from being exhilarating, cold plunging also gives several health benefits.
Cold water swimming has been found to increase circulation, making you feel more energetic. It can also help with rheumatism, fibromyalgia, and respiratory problems such as asthma.
2. Place heaters, a fire pit, or a fireplace.
As they say, to each their own. If you prefer swimming in cooler water, keep your pool unheated. But make sure to have outdoor heaters, a fireplace or fire pit, and comfortable blankets on hand so you can enjoy your pool space while staying warm.
Even in the winter, placing heaters, a fireplace, or a fire pit is always a good idea. This is the perfect way to hold pool parties, whether it be with family or friends!
3. Buy a spa.
Spas can be an ultimate escape to a sacred place of bliss. Create an outdoor oasis that provides hot tub privacy as well as a place for socialising. Free from the restrictions of the walls, doors, and windows inside the house, you can make an outdoor oasis as sophisticated or as rustic as you like.
Another way to make your winter experience memorable is to place a beautifully designed, high-performance hot tub beside your pool. This can be a valuable addition to your Australian home, which can be used best to relieve stress, soothe muscle soreness, or simply share a rejuvenating soak.
If you are interested in making this an addition to your outdoor oasis, Blue Haven can help you design a hot tub plan with a luxurious, built-in look. You might be surprised at how easy and affordable it is to install a hot tub half-in, half-out of the ground, using stone, brick, or wood decking, and attractive foliage.
