Lap Pools: A guide to their Best Features

Mar 22, 2021

There’s lots to consider when selecting the right swimming pool for your property and your plans. Firstly, you need to find one that aligns with your personal taste, and secondly, it has to be the right shape and size for your yard. So, what’s your best bet?

One type of swimming pool that can meet both those considerations with ease is a lap pool. Often, when people think of a lap pool, they think of the activity they are known for – swimming laps! While swimming laps is definitely an advantage of lap pools, there are other advantages to this type of pool you might not have considered. Lap pools can truly be an excellent swimming pool solution for many to-be pool owners. In this blog, we’ll delve into some of their key benefits.

They Suit Narrow Backyards

Lap pools are characteristically narrow in shape, so they’re great for smaller, more narrow backyards that may appear to be unable to fit a pool. Lap pools offer flexibility in where they can be placed; if the rear of your property doesn’t provide much yard space, you could see about getting a lap pool installed on the side of your house. Many homeowners opt for this approach to take advantage of the room available there. On the other hand, if you have more available space at the rear of your yard in comparison to the side of your property, a lap pool could potentially be built close to your back fence. Lap pools are available in a variety of lengths, to suit yards of all sorts of sizes.

On-trend Design

As they are a rectangular shape, lap pools are a stylish and trendy swimming pool option that will look great in various backyards. Their contemporary shape means they can modernise older properties, and with a glamorous water feature like a water blade added to them, they can transform into a piece of art that can be enjoyed whether you’re in the water or not! When positioned at the side of a house, a lap pool can also be a wonderful view from the windows of the home, especially if you can see it from multiple rooms!
