Whether you live in a warm climate or cold climate, indoor swimming pools have many benefits. Those who enjoy exercising in the water can use an indoor swimming pool year-round, instead of just during the summer months. In some parts of the country, having a pool in your home can increase property value. Read on to learn more about indoor swimming pools, including material choices and costs.

Indoor Swimming Pool Choices
When installing an indoor pool, there are many options for materials, including vinyl, concrete, and fiberglass. Installing a vinyl structure is the least expensive, while fiberglass is the most expensive; however, fiberglass structures often require less maintenance and pool chemical usage because they're sealed tightly and don’t react with chemicals.

There are also many different design options for pools. You can create an indoor beach pool, spa and pool combo, or waterfall pool. Although a custom option will be more expensive, it can also add significantly to your home’s value.

Indoor Swimming Pool Costs
The cost of an indoor swimming pool will vary depending on the type of materials you choose. You can expect to pay $20,000 to over $100,000 for the pool materials and installation. Keep your costs down by getting several bids from experienced installers and take note of the pricing and exact materials used, as this will help you choose the best value.

Vapor Barriers
When installing an indoor pool, consider installing a vapor barrier between the pool “room” and the rest of your home. This barrier is designed to be installed in the interior walls surrounding your pool to protect vapor from escaping into other parts of your home. You’ll also want to use moisture-proof insulation in the surrounding walls and ceiling, as this will protect the structure from potential damages.

Dehumidification Ventilation Systems
Indoor swimming pools create higher humidity in your home and having a dehumidification ventilation system installed will help prevent mold and mildew growth. Also, it will make the climate feel more comfortable to those swimming in the pool.

Indoor Swimming Pool Safety
Even if you have a lock on pool doors, having other safety mechanisms will keep children and pets safe. Consider installing an alarm on all doors that access the pool. This way, if a child opens a door, you’ll know immediately. When the pool isn’t in use, cover it with a safety cover. These covers are built to support hundreds of pounds, preventing the submersion of a child or animal.
