The average temperature in Texas during the height of the summer is around 95 degrees. In that heat, having a pool in your yard goes beyond a luxury and borders on necessity. But not everybody has the money or the ability to have an above ground pool dug and filled. Luckily there is an alternative. Shipping container pools are rising commodity and offer a great way to keep yourself cool in the Texas sun.
What Are Shipping Container Pools?
As the name would suggest, a shipping container pool is a swimming pool created from an old shipping container. Now, at the first time of hearing this, a certain image may come to mind, of some large steel block being dumped into your garden. However, container pools can be decorated and incorporated into all manner of designs. Paint, turf or deck coverings and surroundings can easily turn shipping container swimming pool into a focal feature of your home.
What Do Container Pools Cost?
You can have a shipping container converted and installed for as little as $16,000. While that may sound like a lot of money, there are several benefits of choosing for shipping container pools above the more traditional kind.
They Are Long Lasting
A shipping container pool is not a fragile thing. It can take the elements, it can cope with high-frequency use and pretty much anything you could throw at it.
They Can Be Moved if Needed
Moving house? Not a problem. Remodeling? Not a problem. With container pools relocation is not that big of an issue. You can simply pick them up and place them somewhere else.
They Can Be Installed Above or Below Ground
Depending on your finances and your location, you can install a shipping container pool either above or below ground. This adds a level of flexibility that can be combined with decoration and landscaping prowess to deliver more than just a simple pool.
Shipping Container Pools Have Depth
Shipping containers are not small, so when purchasing one and converting it into a shipping container swimming pool, you should be aware that the end result will be a deep pool. What does this mean? Well, if you have small children, or you’re nervous about having your children around a large body of water then a container may not be the right decision for you. On the positive side, pools made from shipping containers are deep. That means fun! Diving, bombing, and all manner of shenanigans can take place.
