Pre-Design Considerations

What kind of swimming pool do you want?

What’s the function of the swimming pool?

Will the kids be playing in the pool all summer long?

Do you want to swim laps?

Is space at a premium?

Your new pool can be built to almost any size or shape or style that you can imagine!

The limitations are your imagination, space and budget.

Many pool styles can be combined with terrific results.

Typical Pool Styles

Diving Pool
Diving pools can be a real safety hazard, and should only be built to national standards.
Diving pools are generally about 8-1/2 feet deep with a diving board or platform.

Freeform Pool
Lagoon style is considered freeform. They normally have rock features and built to mimic an oasis. Freeform pools have become popular in recent years.

Geometric Pool

Geometric pools typically have straight lines or a consistent radius and are more traditional looking.

Lap Pool
Lap pools normally narrow and long, often over 50’, to facilitate exercise and swimming.

Negative Edge Pool
Negative edge pools are getting more common and require an expert to build. Some people referred to them as infinity swimming pools or infinity edge pools. These pools are designed to look like the pool extends all the way to the horizon.

Perimeter Overflow Pool
The water level in the pool is the same as the top of the decking.
The pool perimeter has a channel or notch that the water drains into, creating a visual masterpiece.

Play Pool
A typical play pool is no deeper than five feet.
Play pools are generally built for cooling off and relaxing, playing volleyball and water sports, and swimming laps.

The word spool is a combination of a spa and a pool.
Spools are typically over sized spas somewhere around 12’ X 14’.
