Inground Pools – Building and Customizing a Size and Shape for You

Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs can build and customize any size or shape of inground pool. And because inground pools are a major investment and major undertaking, it’s critical for a homeowner to be making smart choices with respect to size, shape, and location. In short, pool size and shape will be contingent primarily on the homeowner’s personal needs. As well, the overall project will be dependent on an allocated budget.

For all inground pools, homeowner needs will vary by type of family, physical conditions, and lifestyle. For example, a so-called “lap pool” requires a sizeable backyard and would be suitable for exercise and training. The recreational pool is designed with a shallow end and a deep end to accommodate various swimming levels. And the “free- form” design is ideal when customizing the entire swimming pool landscape of the backyard.

One of the biggest decisions for inground pools is the size and shape of the pool. Here, it’s helpful to have some idea of the most popular shapes available, and which one would be best suited for the home. At Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs, every customer receives valuable input and advice from professionals with pool experience that spans thousands of custom built inground pools. And with that experience comes innovative design ideas.

The professionals at Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs can build and customize the pool of your dreams. At the same time, it’s important for the homeowner to be an informed, educated consumer. It will make for a more meaningful relationship between builder and client.

The Rectangular Pool

Inground pools that are rectangular in shape are usually quite long and narrow – they are ideal for those who want to swim laps. When designed with rounded corners, this design can be very attractive and less rigid.

Free-Form Pool Design

The free-form pool design is totally customized. These inground pools can be built in any shape (within reason), and do not follow any typical pattern. This is a pool design chosen to blend in with existing landscaping.

The Kidney-Shaped Pool

These inground pools are popular with homeowners because they are customizable to practically any backyard environment. The pool design is smooth and flowing, allowing for both a shallow end and a deep end.

Figure Eight Pool Design

Figure eight pools are the ideal option for the family who requires various activity areas. These inground pools allow younger children to enjoy a separate shallow area, while allowing the deep end to be available.

Traditional L-Shaped Pool

The traditional L-shaped swimming pool is similar in design to the rectangular pool, but offers the flexibility of being able to swim laps, while providing a more confined area for a shallow-end (for younger swimmers).

Apart from the shape and design of the various inground pools, size is also an important consideration. Here, Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs can be instrumental in assessing physical requirements and lifestyle needs, and coming up with a solution to suit. The team at Seaway brings design expertise and building experience together to make it all happen.
