Homes in Perth can benefit greatly from having swimming pools. Given the city’s warm to hot weather, a swimming pool provides an ideal form of relaxation, exercise, and socialisation. To fully enjoy these benefits, the pool water must be kept clean and safe. Dirt, microorganisms, chemicals, and other pollutants continuously go into the pool water, and are likely to cause health and safety hazards. Pool water sanitation is accomplished through a combination of different methods, such as the use of a salt chlorinator.

Plunge pools are welcome additions to many households in Perth, where the city’s climate is characterised by hot and dry summers. The rest of the year is also relatively warm, which makes it possible to enjoy a plunge pool for most of the year. Winters are also pretty mild, and the city is considered particularly sunny. Why stop with simply having a pool, though? With this addition to your home, you can have lots of opportunities for hosting fun parties. Inviting friends over and sharing a good time is a great use for a home swimming pool. Here are some suggestions for staging a poolside party.

Perth leads the poll, claiming 18 per cent of total swimming pool ownership (followed by Queensland, Sydney, Brisbane, and Adelaide). Aside from the obvious reasons such as added aesthetic appeal and the ability to cool off on hot days, there’s a lot more to the popularity of swimming pools.

Moving to a new home here in Perth? If you have an existing fibreglass pool, opt to refurbish and transfer it rather than have an entirely new one installed.

Trust a pool refurbishing specialist such as Palm City Pools to restore the shape and surface of your old fibreglass pool to as good as new.

We all want to save money on the things we buy. If you’re talking about luxury items like swimming pools—especially ones built in ground for long term use—selecting the cheapest choice can hardly be considered a smart decision if it means that quality is compromised. Fortunately, there are many ways to keep pool construction costs manageable. Here are three helpful tips to keep in mind. 1. Get a pool you will really use. First, be clear on why you want a swimming pool in the first place. Do you intend to swim laps every day, or do you just want a cool place to relax every now and then with family and friends? Do you want a pool of sufficient depth for young and adult swimmers alike? Remember that construction costs increase with size and depth, so buy a pool that is just right for your needs.
