3 Reasons to Consider a Zero Entry Pool

Posted on: 12 July 2017

The majority of residential swimming pools are the same depth across the length and width of the pool area and have ladders which allow people to enter and leave the water. However, this isn't the only option. You may also wish to choose a zero entry pool. A zero entry pool is sloped so that one side gradually rises to surface level, allow you to walk in and out of the pool with the same ease as walking in or out of the ocean. Below is a guide to three times you consider installing a zero entry pool on your property.

You have a physical disability

If you have a physical disability which makes moving around troublesome, then it is much easier to enter a zero entry pool than it is a traditional pool with ladders. The gradual slow of a zero entry pool will allow you to use a walking aid as you enter to pool which can then be passed to a family member once you are in the water.

You have young kids

Having kids is a great reason to invest in a swimming pool as there isn't a better way for a child to spend a summer's day than splashing around and learning to swim. However, if you have young kids, they may be put off entering the pool if they have to climb down a ladder to get into the water. If your child isn't confident in the water, a zero entry pool will allow them to dip their toes into the water before they take the plunge and go deeper.

You would rather relax than exercise

Traditional pools which are the same depth along their entire length are great if you want to exercise and swim 20 lengths every morning. Zero entry pools are not ideal for exercise, as it's hard to swim the length when one side becomes increasingly shallow. However, if you do not plan to use your pool for exercise such as this, you may want to consider a zero entry pool. A zero entry pool will still allow you to float on an inflatable or swim in the deep end, but will also offer you the chance to kick back and lie partially submerged on the sloped shallow end, which is perfect if you want to enjoy a beer and soak up the sun while remaining cool.
