Shipping Container Pool

The life of luxury isn’t as far out of reach as you might think with a shipping container pool.

Characteristics of a Shipping Container Pool

For many people across the UK, lounging by the pool on a hot day is a level of luxury reserved only for summer holidays. 

High costs have historically led Brits to leave this luxury for trips abroad. Live Off Grid’s shipping container pools show that you don’t need millions in the bank to be able to swim a few laps in your garden.

Get your dream pool for less

Why a Shipping Container Pool is Perfect

Owning your own pool is, for many, a dream scenario. Fantasies of sitting by the side of your own pool, sipping a cool drink on a warm summer’s day aren’t uncommon. 

But life is full of obstacles, and the average starting price for an outdoor swimming pool in the UK is around £25,000. 

For many, that could be just too high an expense to make when compared to other potentially more pressing needs. 

Live Off Grid’s shipping container pools represent a significant saving on the average price. This means that if you’ve always wanted your own aquatic paradise, it could be more affordable than you might think.

Exercise isn't reserved for your local gym

Work out in the Water

Many people weighing up fitting a pool will think of using it in the summer on a hot day, having a drink and relaxing. But something often overlooked is the immediate health benefits a pool can have. 

Many experts consider swimming to be one of the best exercises you can do. The resistance the water gives forces your body to use nearly all of its muscles, making for an efficient and fun workout.

Swimming can also boost endurance, strength and cardio, as well as helping to maintain a healthy heart and lungs. 

You don't have to leave your pool when you move

Take Your Pool With You

Around 100,000 people move house every month in the UK. Moving house can be an exciting new chapter in a person’s life, a chance to start again. But what if you’ve just installed a new pool? You can’t take it with you. But at least it will boost your house price, right? Surprisingly, in the UK a swimming pool is very unlikely to increase a house price anywhere close to the expense it costs to build. 

So you want a pool but don’t want to lose out if you have to move, what are your options? Well, the beauty of a Live Off Grid shipping container pool is that, thanks to their sturdy design, you can take your pool with you. You never know what could come in life, but at least you’ll be prepared for it.

Why wait for your dream pool?

Don't Delay Your Dip

The beauty of a shipping container pool is in the convenience. In most cases an above ground pool would not need planning permission, it doesn’t require months of construction and building work in your garden. 

Pool installation can take anywhere from three months to a year. A shipping container pool on the other hand only takes 8-10 weeks from starting the build to ready to swim.
