The first thing you need to consider when designing your pool is its intended use. Do you want to swim laps, do physical therapy, exercise, entertain guests, let the kids have some fun, or impress your neighbors? After all, you want to get a pool for a reason or a multitude of reasons to enhance your life. A pool′s intended use has arguably the greatest impact on the way it should be designed, and therefore, the needs and wants your swimming pool is intended to fulfill should be identified very early in the design process. It is also useful to recognize the pool′s primary functions to help you narrow down your design choices. In the following sections we′ll go over some of the most popular benefits people get from owning a pool, and how these impact the swimming pool′s design.
It′s important that your pool and spa builder design your pool so that it blends with the ambiance of the architecture of your home. Are you the proud owner of a traditional ranch house or a Spanish style hacienda? A four story mansion or a shantytown shack? Inground pools are not a "one size fits all" proposition. Your pool designer will be the one to help you build the inground pool that′s right for your home.
If you want to use your pool for some serious exercise, then the dimensions of your pool require more critical consideration. For lap swimming, a pool at least 25 feet long and 3.5 feet deep is recommended, with typical lengths ranging form 25 to 40 feet. There are also dedicated lap pools that are relatively very narrow, and therefore fit in constrained spaces. Water aerobics require some more depth to avoid touching bottom. Typically a section of the pool that′s 5 to 6 feet deep is enough for this purpose.
If you′re going to spend time pool-side sunbathing, be sure to leave the space for it. And if you opt for the above-ground pool variety, the addition of a sizable pool level deck makes great sense.
