Arizona is one of the few places in the country where using a pool at any point in the year is possible! But before you go jump in the water in January, you are going to want to make sure the water is comfortable for swimming. Here are five features that make swimming across seasons a reality.
1. ELECTRIC HEAT PUMP
The electric heat pump effectively heats your pool to make swimming in colder weather possible. The pump is essential for anyone who wants to extend swimming a couple of months despite the dropping temperatures. But make sure, for the heat pump to work properly, you pair it with this next product.
2. SOLAR BLANKET
Solar covers are designed to go over your pool and keep in warmth, while transferring solar heat to the water. Most solar blankets are easy to cut and adjust to any pool shape. The blanket simply sits over your water when you are out of the pool.
3. GAS HEATER
The gas heater can warm up your pool much quicker than an electric pool pump. While this option is ideal for throwing pool parties in the winter, the natural gas they use can be more expensive. Gas heaters work independently from the environment, so you can warm your pool whenever you want!
An easy solution to swim during all months of the year is adding a spa to your backyard design. Because of their smaller size, spas can heat up regardless of the weather. For more information on Spas, check out our Spas & Hot Tubs section.
5. INDOOR POOL
An indoor pool is always an option for those who want to swim in absolutely any type of weather. While they are not as common as traditional backyard pools, we can build a pool inside your home!
