Indoor swimming for year round fun?

Given the extended chill that we have experienced this year, you might be considering installing your new swimming pool inside. An indoor pool offers year round enjoyment and the option for a climate controlled space where you can don that swimming costume without goosebumps or risk of sunburn. An indoor pool is also unaffected by external elements such as wind, rain and leaves that all act to extend the time spent on cleaning your pool. However, with the addition of lighting and heating, your annual power bill could increase significantly more than if you had opted for an outdoor pool. Indoor pools are also generally restricted with space, which could be detrimental to a family with school aged children wishing to frolic poolside.
Our Australian climate commonly calls for an outdoor pool, as it offers space and fresh air. It also provides us with that all-important exposure to vitamin D that helps strengthen our bones and immune system. An outdoor pool creates a spectacular feature to your outside space, complimented with paving, fencing, soft landscaping and other optional features such as water features and retaining walls. Heating and lighting an outdoor pool is optional, so your power bill would take less of a hit but there are a few months in the year where it is too cold to dive in, reducing the annual time spent enjoying aquatic immersion.
As a nation, we gravitate to the outdoors, which suggests that an outdoor pool is the best option. However, it is worth considering building your pool in an internal space to optimise its use throughout the year.
Indoor or outdoor? You make the call.
