From Leisure Pools

Not many people in cold weather climates choose to keep their swimming pools open for the winter.  Those that do, according to this post from Leisure Pools, are enjoying a thoroughly invigorating experience.  The post explains three major ways that swimming pool owners can enjoy their swimming pools for the winter months.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

It’s fall and as a pool owner, you may be dreading the winter months ahead. This doesn’t have to be the case! While some may choose to winterize their pools, you can use your pool all year round. You may be wondering how, so we’ve put together a list of the top three ways you can use your pool even in the cooler months.

1. Cold Plunge

People have been taking ice cold dips in freezing cold water for generations. Some do it because it’s exhilarating, some for the health benefits, while others do it to cool after after soaking in a spa. Yes, it does cool you down after using the spa and helps you not feel lethargic, but cold water plunges have been found to increase circulation, making you feel more energetic. It can even alleviate pains from rheumatism, fibromyalgia, and respiratory issues like asthma.

While some people have reap the benefits of a cold water plunge by turning their shower water cold or taking a dip in a cold lake or ocean, you can have the same benefits from your pool! If you do choose to keep your pool open all year round, you can use your pool like a cold water plunge–or even a cold water swim if you so choose. For those who own spas, you may find keeping your pool open for this reason especially desirable–you can cool off from you spa in the cold plunge.
