The team at Jonite is fascinated by the history of each and every product we carefully design and craft. We believe mere functionalities and great designs still do not suffice, immersing ourselves in the history behind our products is what gives our products their "souls".

The technical definition of the swimming pool is a structure designed to hold water to enable swimming or other leisure water activities. How many people actually know that the earliest "swimming pool" (or a gigantic water tank) existed over 5000 years ago in the Pakistani city of Mohenjodaro? It measures around 12 meters by 7 meters with a dept of 2.4 meters! Back in those days, it was used more as a "bath tank"
Perhaps the most prominently portion of swimming pool history hails from the ancient Greeks and Romans. As quality of life improves with more wealth, luxuries like swimming pool came into the picture. The rich back then had luxury pools which enhanced the aesthetic of their properties and were a symbol of status and wealth. Back in those days, pools were used mainly for health, bathing and socializing purposes.
Pools during the Greek and Roman times were also used for military training. Back in the 400 BC, the great Greek philosopher Plato strongly felt all children should acquire the ability to swim as part of their education.
Today in our modern world, you can find swimming pools in private clubs, health clubs, fitness centers, community centers and of course private pools in residential or commercial settings. It is a place where we can all gather for recreation or train for competitions.
