Courtyard Pools

Plunge Pools

Small pools, plunge pools, courtyard pools, what's the difference? Small pools generally will have a "shallow" end and deep end just like a larger pool. Plunge pools or "courtyard pools" will normally have a consistent depth, sometimes with a seated area. Typically measuring approx 4m long x 3m wide either option are great for smaller blocks or courtyards.

Ocean Breeze Pools are one of the Mornington Peninsulas leading pool companies. We offer a range of small and "plunge" pools, installing from the Mornington Peninsula to South Melbourne.

Why are Plunge Pools so popular on the Mornington Peninsula?

In-ground fibreglass plunge pools are one of the fastest-growing trends in swimming pool design on the Mornington Peninsula. Thanks to their compact size and ability to adapt to small spaces this makes them an excellent option for almost any home. Here’s a few more key reasons why a plunge pool may be perfect for your home:


Various sizes

You can likely fit a plunge pool into most courtyards or small back-yards. Because these pools are so adaptable, they can be designed to fit in almost any space.



You should leave the installation to the pros. Although a plunge pool is smaller than a traditional pool, it’s not as easy to install as an above-ground pool. Mistakes during installation can cost you big.


Additional Options

You can add jets for “lap” swimming. You can use a small plunge pool for exercise if you install jets. Your jets can create a current for you to swim against, and you can adjust them to your strength and level of swimming ability.

Why install a pool in your courtyard?

There's so many reasons more and more people are installing small pools or plunge pools, especially on the Mornington Peninsula. Below are just a few key advantages of plunge pools:


They fit into smaller spaces. If you love the idea of having a swimming pool on your property but simply don’t have space, then a plunge pool may be an option. Plunge pools work well alongside decks or patios or even tucked away by a wall or fence for the ultimate in space efficiency.


Less water means less maintenance. The smaller size of a plunge pool means that less debris will find its way inside. In fact, many plunge pool owners find that all they need is a manual vacuum and a scoop net to keep their pool free of leaves and the other debris that can accumulate in the water.


Plunge pools require far less water than regular pools, which can save you money in several different ways. First of all, you’ll need fewer chemicals or pool salt to keep the water clean and clear. Also, your costs associated with running the filters, pumps, and heaters will be lower. Finally, topping up the water level when it begins to drop is less of an expense.


You can easily install swim jets into a fibreglass plunge pool to turn it into a swim spa. A more cost effective way of turning your plunge pool into a swimmable pool is through the use of a "pool harness". This piece of equipment effectively keeps you swimming on the spot without the turbulence of a swim jet (it's also much more cost effective).


Add spa jets to the seated areas of your new plunge pool and enjoy a relaxing spa massage while relaxing in your plunge pool.
