Outdoor pool

  Indoor pool


In an average year, and depending on your location, you may have between 60 and 90 "pool days".  The rest of the days are either too cold or rainy.

An indoor pool is usable 365 days a year, any time of the day (or night), snow, rain or shine, cold or hot.
You will not need to listen to the weather forecast to plan your next pool party.


Adding a regular pool to your property may not add to the property value, so your costs are not necessarily recoverable.

Adding a pool indoor, especially in a nice setting, can add up to $50,000 to the resale value of your home, making it an investment, instead of a cost!


It is a question of size! (and surface area)

A regular pool (e.g.: 24' x 48', 8' deep) contains approximately 80,000 gallons of water. 

A contains 3,000 gallons. That's 25 times less water and almost ten times less surface area. That means ten times less heating cost and chemical costs.


Outdoor pools lose heat, especially during cold days or during the night, even when covered by a pool blanket.
When heating a pool, each degree rise in the temperature can cost you an additional 5% or more.

Constant room temperature of about 20c (or 70F) will not significantly affect the water temperature. A pool blanket will further reduce energy loss by about 70%.  A fan for air ventilation (to reduce humidity) is suggested when a blanket is not place.


Direct and prolonged exposure to the sun can be a health concern.
The use of sun screen lotions may make the water oily.

Usually you can avoid direct sun light.


Mosquito bites can be a nuisance or even dangerous.

Mosquitoes can be easily controlled.


You (and your insurance) are responsible for any injuries in your pool, even injuries suffered by intruders.

No intruders to worry about.


Traditional outdoor pools are usually much larger and deeper. They require quite a bit of maintenance: cleaning, filtering, chlorination, PH level maintenance, heating, etc...

The amount of water in a Riverpool may be five to twenty times less, thus your maintenance costs are considerably reduced.


Usually an outdoor pool will dirty with dust, leaves, debris, insects, air and rain pollutants.

The inside environment is much cleaner.


The cost of professionally installing a traditional outdoor pool may vary between $20,000 and $60,000.

The cost of a Riverpool plus the cost of a sunroom may be comparable to the cost of a full-size outdoor pool.


The pool may suffer damage during the summer (direct sun light) and during the winter (ice).  It may also be affected by day/night temperature variations.


The inside environment is usually kept at room temperature or at least several degrees above freezing.
