Benefits of Heated Swimming Pool


Pools are not just an extra luxury feature to your home or property but an exercise, enjoyment, refreshment, relaxation, and social activity. Dipping into a sparkling and cold swimming pool feels like an oasis. Heating a swimming pool would be a cherry on top because it enhances the fun of a swimming pool. Warm water makes your pool more therapeutic, relaxing, versatile, and inviting. Heating a pool will make it more enjoyable and comfortable for swimmers. Warm water will maintain your health, especially in the summer. Heating your pool will make it a precious asset and can be easily enjoyed throughout the seasons.

Types of Heaters

Following are the types of heaters through which you can efficiently heat your swimming pool:

Solar Heaters:

They collect sun heat via solar panels and heat pool water through this heat. These panels pump the pool water, warm it, and then return it to the pool. They mostly lose their heating ability on cloudy or sunny days. Therefore, they are mostly used in conjunction with other forms of heaters.

Gas Heaters:

Heating through gas is one of the most efficient types of heater because it quickly heats the pool water and is cheap. But nowadays. it is losing its popularity, and electric pumps or solar panels are taking the place of it, which are more efficient in providing energy. They run by burning propane or natural gas in a specific chamber, and water heats up by passing through it.

Electrical resistance:

They produce heat with the help of electricity, and pool water gets warmed by passing through a heating element.

Heater pumps:

They pump heat from a specific source and transfer it to the pool water. In air source pumps, they pull heat from the air, and in water sources, these pumps pull heat from some underground source and bring it to the pool water.

Benefits of heating pools

Swimming pools give recreational enjoyment on hot summer days. Heating of swimming pools is also important because it has various benefits, which are as follows:

Good and improved health:

Swimming is not a source of enjoyment only. Still, it is also a source of low-impact aerobic workout that benefits people of all ages(especially for joint problems). Hot water relaxes muscles and helps swimmers exercise in water for a lengthy period. The satisfying massage of warm water to a person’s body helps minimize stress levels and improves mental and physical health equally. Warm water also helps in enhancing blood circulation throughout the body.

Prolonged Swimming Season:

Swimming season can be prolonged with the help of heating pools. Like, most people cover their pools in the winter season due to the cold. But if your pool has warm water, there is no need to close it, but it will benefit your body with hot water. The pool owners can continue their pool businesses throughout the year with the help of a heating pool system. Heating the pools will allow you to extend your outdoor space and increase your investment and profit on pools for a year.

Social activities:

A pool with warm water is the best asset for a social or family gathering. Barbecues, pool parties, and gatherings of family and friends invite togetherness to collect good memories irrespective of the outdoor temperature. It will become a source of enjoyment, spreading love, and a hub of loving moments.

Aesthetic Environment:

Your warm water swimming pool will give an aesthetic appeal to your backyard. On cool winter days, it creates an aesthetic view of steam coming out of it like clouds, and that misty environment will make your outdoor place more inviting, peaceful, and attractive.

Enhanced lifestyle:

Heating your pool will convert your backyard into a place that offers socialization, relaxation, year-round retreat, and recreation wherever you desire in the middle of the winter. It will convert your boring pool lifestyle into a luxurious calm and give your place a luxury touch quality.

Minimize Algae Growth:

Due to many reasons, algae may grow in pools that are not good for swimmers and are equally harmful to health. Algae flourish more in cooler water, but if you heat your pools, it will minimize the risk of algal blooms that increase the risk of oxygen deficiency. So, heating your pool water with little effort will save you from many hazardous problems.

High property value:

Hot water pools act as an attractive asset for property buyers, especially in cooler regions of the world; they increase your property value for resale. Also, your pool area can be used for many functions like exercise and outdoor games playing by setting furniture around your pool area and making it more luxurious and versatile. Hot water pools are competitive and appealing in real estate markets.

Safe to use:

Cold water causes many health problems like muscle stiffness, joint problems, cardiovascular disorders, etc. Cold water may also lead to other children or elderly problems like hypothermia. So, it is safe to use hot water pools because they do not cause any disease; they are therapeutic and act as a water purifier because heat kills many microorganisms that the human eye cannot see; so we can enjoy hot water pools safely without any hesitation.

Enhanced circulation of water:

Most of the heating systems of pools have pumps for water circulation that distribute the heat to all parts of the pool without leaving water patches unheated, and the entire pool maintains a perfect same hot temperature even in snowfall season. Also, the pools with larger surface areas will provide equal warmth and swimming experience with these water circulation pumps.


After discussing all the benefits, we conclude that swimming pool heating brings several benefits. It improves health, strengthens family bonding, brings friends closer to each other, and also maximizes property worth. So, if you are on the Sunshine Coast, a heated pool has plenty of benefits. So, whether you are a die-hard fan of swimming, a property investor, or a relaxation seeker, it equally acts as an adored and valuable asset for all.
