Plunge Pool Sizes & Dimensions In Australia

Plunge Pool Sizes & Dimensions In Australia - What Are They?

Plunge pools are a term that is used to refer to compact swimming pools. These pools are often much smaller than traditional pools and can be configured in either inground or above-ground setups.

If you’re considering a plunge pool for your space, you may be wondering: what are some of the most common plunge pool sizes?

In this article, we will discuss the most common plunge pool sizes in Australia and list the sets of plunge pool dimensions for some of the most popular styles.

Plunge Pool Sizes

Small Plunge Pools

Some of the smallest rectangular plunge pools start at about 1.5 x 2 metres in area with a depth of a little bit over 1 m. These are available for the most compact spaces and also come in round shapes.

The smallest circular plunge pools that are available are typically around 1.5 m in diameter with a depth of approximately one metre.

Standard Plunge Pools

The most common set of rectangular plunge pool dimensions are 2 x 3 m, and these pools have a fairly standard depth of about 1.2 m. Plunge pools can also include steps or benches that impact their overall volume, and some models offer sloped floor plans for those seeking variable depth.

Another popular style of plunge pool is the circular plunge pool. Round plunge pools typically have a standard diameter of 2.5 m. These often have a set depth of 1.2 m, but larger sizes are also available.

Large Plunge Pools

Some of the largest rectangular plunge pools are approximately 4 x 2.5 m in area with a depth of 1.5 m. Some of the largest circular plunge pools have a diameter of 3.5 m with the same depth as the rectangular option.

Some plunge pools are not larger in area but will have added depth that is outside of the standard range of 1-1.5 m. The deepest plunge pools that are available in Australia include a total depth of 2.1 metres.


Many varieties of plunge pools are available to fit the space that you have in mind. Whether you are looking for a small pool to squeeze into a compact space or you want to fit the largest pool possible into a limited area, plunge pools make the best choice.

If you can’t find an ideal pool within the variety of standard available sizes, consider contacting a pool construction company. Concrete pools are highly customisable and can often be constructed to fit your exact specifications and ideas.
