Scorching days, muggy afternoons, boring days or frenzied days, a plunge in the swimming pool will let your stressed nerves unwind. The water in the swimming pool refreshes your nerves and all the accumulated stress disappears in a jiffy. Swimming pools hold the secret to weight reduction and trim physique, sans the side effects that come free with some other forms of meticulous exercises.


Swimming pools can be traced back to the 'great baths' of Mohenjodaro. Greeks and Romans built artificial pools that were put to use to train athletes for nautical games and military exercises. Roman emperors had private pools with fish in them and hence the Latin word for pool, piscina.

If you are seeking to install a private swimming pool, read on for pertinent information that can help you make a better choice. Look for more details about inground swimming pools and above ground swimming pools. What are the features of a fiberglass inground swimming pool?


Swimming pool

A swimming pool can be defined as a body that is not natural and contains water, created for leisure swimming or swimming contests. Swimming pools can be either private or public. In tepid places of the world, private pools are constructed outdoor, whilst public pools are constructed either outdoor or indoor. In other parts of the world, swimming pools are constructed indoor for private use.

Swimming pools can be portable or permanently fixed. Swimming pools are constructed either inground or above ground as per the requirements. Inground pools are made of shatterproof concrete and layered with unique plaster, fiberglass case or with assembled sectional walls and a vinyl liner. Above ground swimming pools are generally built from plastic and metal. A swimming pool should not have any construction that has hard substance both over and under the surface of the floor containing water.

Pool covers play a vital role in safeguarding kids from any pool accidents. You can keep the swimming pool closed when not in use and also keep leaves and bugs at bay. You can choose from a manual or automatic pool cover. Consider buying a good quality swimming pool liner as it determines the quality of its water. A pool liner can keep mildew and algae from forming on the swimming pool and maintaining the right pH.


Choosing indoor fountain

By Materials: You can choose from synthetic or natural materials. The choice includes ceramic, stainless steel, acrylic, slate, marble, stone, wood, fiberglass, plastic, copper, bronze, glass and aluminum. Location of indoor fountain, your design preference and mobility factor should be accounted, as indoor fountains made of stone, rock or slate can be heavy. Indoor fountains made of synthetic materials have less wear and tear besides being affordable.


By designs: Each type offers extensive choice in terms of being simple, rustic or slick contemporary designs, hand-carved or custom-designed. The visual appearance of each is unique.

By features: Adjustable flow control impact sound of water and the overall appearance of fountain, lighting to enhance visual appeal, the built-in clock or thermostat improves the functional aspect. Wall brackets specifically for wall fountains safely fasten the fountain in its place.

By water sound: Bubbles and gurgles or with a soothing flow of water or with gushing sound are some options with indoor fountains.

By size: The size is determined by the number of panels - one, two or three panel indoor fountain.


Indoor fountains - care and maintenance

Indoor fountains as compared outdoor fountains are practically maintenance free. They demand less time and effort for care and maintenance. Few hours every few months would suffice to keep it running sans interruption.


  • Make use of manufacturer's instruction manual to understand the mechanism of indoor fountain working and related maintenance aspect.

  • Prevent algae and mineral deposits by cleaning the pump every three months. An unused toothbrush, dish detergent and warm water are required.

  • Remove build up of calcium deposits on ceramic or stone with a common kitchen or bathroom lime remover.

  • Always ensure the optimum water level is maintained. Check daily; add a small quantity of water everyday. If the right water level is not maintained, it can result in the burning of the pump.

  • Change water every month in order to prevent algae buildup.

  • During winter, do not allow the water to freeze. You can dismantle and not exhibit during extreme winter or drain the fountain completely, fill the bowl with burlap and cover the fountain with a waterproof cover
