There is nothing more refreshing, fun, and healthy than swimming. Water lovers often invest in a home pool and sometimes an outdoor hot tub. These are luxuries that give us a greater quality of life. Thanks to glass pool enclosures, pool, and hot tub owners can enjoy these luxuries year round.
What are Glass Pool Enclosures?
A glass pool enclosure is much like a conservatory for your pool area. It is a building made of glass that covers the entire pool area. This allows the sunshine in and harsh weather out. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, built to suit your needs.
If you like to use a diving board or want height above the pool, you can have it. There are enclosures that are specifically built to handle the height requirements of diving. If you are not a lover of heights, you can get a medium or low height enclosure, which has its own specific benefits. The lower ceilings trap heat in the water better, which reduces power consumption and they combat evaporation caused by the rate of the wind, which means you do not have to change the water in the pool or spa as often.
Are there other benefits?
Besides the fantastic and obvious benefit of year-round swimming, having a glass pool enclosure has many (and often) surprising benefits.
- It adds value to the home
The glass pool enclosure is beautiful and functional and adds to the resale value of your property. It has tremendous curb appeal and takes your home pool to a whole new level.
- Reduces the need for excess chemicals
An enclosed pool has a reduced exposure to phosphates, pollutants, and pathogens that can be hazardous. Because of this, you need fewer chemicals to keep the water clean. This means a healthier swimming experience and financial savings in operational costs.
- Less cleaning and maintenance
Your pool is protected from objects that fall or land in the pool. No more will you have to spend an hour cleaning and vacuuming the pool before you can even get in. The pool is no longer subject to:
- Dead leaves
- Falling branches
- Tree pollen
- Bees and ants
- Toys that are accidentally thrown in
- Bugs and spiders
- Safety and liability
The number one fear a pool owner has is someone being hurt or killed on their property. Pools are magnets for children. No matter how close we are watching, children will manage to get into an exposed pool, hot tub, or spa. Every year in the United States more than 3,500 children drown in pools and most of them are children under the age of 14. No alarm, gate, fence, or wall can ensure the safety of neighborhood children as well as a pool that is protected with a glass enclosure.
- The integrity of the pool
You do not have to worry about storms, wind, rain, and other elements causing damage to the pool since the weather cannot blow things into the pool there is no chance of debris clogging the water or filter system.
If you are a pool, hot tub, or spa owner, a glass enclosure is the best investment you can make for your health, quality of life, and continual financial savings.
