One pool can definitely be a smart and much-appreciated investment for any San Diego homeowner, especially when it’s strategically located and carefully designed. That said, there are times when a second pool is worth considering as well. Today, we’re going to take a look at some of the reasons you may want to hire an experienced professional San Diego pool builder to add a second pool to your home.
If you have a household where some people prefer to casually float in the pool and others want to channel their inner Michael Phelps or swim laps for exercise, a second pool could be a welcome addition. With a situation like this, one pool can be used for more focused swimming and water-based exercises, and the other one can be designated for casual use and relaxation.
A second pool can fit right in if you have sufficient space to work with. What you end up doing with another pool will depend on how your roomier exteriors are set up. Possible options with a second pool when you have more space available include:
• A second smaller pool for the kids
• An identical pool on the side or in the front if there’s enough space
• A second pool with a contrasting design for added aesthetic appeal
• A second pool that’s more intimate with a built-in hot tub and other features
Over the years, things can change in your household in a way that warrants considering a second pool. For instance, you might have more children now than when your pool was first built, or you may now have older family members who could benefit from relaxing in a pool with a lower water level. Both of these situations can be remedied with a second pool. And thanks to the many options with size, shape, and design, you don’t need a huge yard to have a second pool.
The view can be another reason to consider a second pool. For example, if your first pool is located on a part of your property that doesn’t have the best view, you may want to keep it for times when you just want more privacy. A second pool could then be built where there’s a view you want to take advantage of. You could even go with an infinity pool to give the illusion of an edge that vanishes into the horizon to further accentuate your view.
There are also some practical reasons for considering a second pool for your home. For instance, it may be impractical to completely remove a pool that’s not in line with your current preferences. What you could do instead is update your existing pool as much as possible and invest in a second one that’s designed to better reflect your current style and design preferences.
