Lazy L Pool

This pool shape is as interesting as the name. This pool is shaped as the capital L. The vertical stem of the L is usually kept smaller and lesser in width. The other part of the pool has more width, and is usually where a group would hang out. This pool shape comes in handy for backyards with unique needs. Sometimes your yard is a bit small, and it doesn’t seem like you have enough room to support a pool. That is why we offer so many different shapes. It helps you see every possible way you could have your own customized pool.


Kiddie Pool

Providing a portable play feature for children.

At the very lowest end of the "Can I Afford a Pool?" scale is the easy-to-find portable kiddie pool, which can be either an inflatable device or a rigid plastic shell. Either way, these pools can be pulled out of storage whenever hot weather arrives and the kids need a place to cool off, then put back into storage at the end of the season. Just make sure you drain the pool after each use (water the lawn), and keep an alert eye on the kiddies at all times—even very shallow pools can be hazardous to unsupervised kids.


Above-Ground Swimming Pool

Above-ground pools serve as a symbol of attainable pool ownership. They can also be a good option for cold-winter climates where maintaining an in-ground pool for the winter can be difficult. There are both hard-sided and soft-sided options in this style, and some pools are almost indistinguishable from much more expensive in-ground pools, especially if you add an elevated deck or frame around the outside of the pool. In many climates, though, in-ground pools are drained, disassembled, and put away in seasons where they aren't needed. In this case, soft-sided above-ground pools are an excellent choice.


Explore ethereal undergrounds in Jodhpur, India

Astrology lovers might be used to looking up for inspiration, but at Umaid Bhawan Palace, it takes going below ground for the stars to align. Once the largest hotel in the world, below this sprawling palace is a cavernous and lavish pool, complete with teal walls and glinting gold tiles. Dip into the water and you’ll notice the pool floor engraved with the 12 signs of the Zodiac. Gliding through the water when it’s just you and the astrological figures below, is a restful and ethereal experience.


Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

The infinity pool at Marina Bay Sands is the largest of its kind in the entire world—giving tourists a chance to take in the city from every point of view. It's part of the over-the-top Sky Park, perched atop the 57th floor of the Marina Bay Sands resort in Singapore. Unfortunately, pool access is only reserved for hotel guests, but a stay here is worth lounging by this revolutionary pool. (Bonus fun fact! It was just featured in the hit movie Crazy Rich Asians.)


Sail great lengths at San Alfonso Del Mar, Chile

Unusual and unrivalled in its size, the pool at San Alfonso Del Mar is the largest outdoor swimming pool in the world. It’s around 1,000 metres long (20 times the size of an Olympic pool) and around 35 metres deep, which also makes it the world’s deepest swimming pool to boot. Built along the Chilean coastline, the pool pulls in water from the sea, which is controlled and filtered via its own system. Navigate from one side to the other in one of the pool’s small sailboats and canoes, before anchoring up at the other end and heading down to the beach for an early evening stroll.


A swimming pool made of fiberglass will be sold as a large one-piece shell that arrives at your home by truck and then is positioned in the excavated hole with the help of a crane. Unlike concrete pools, fiberglass pools are ready-made, making it rare to request a customized design. Most fiberglass manufacturers offer many models and sizes to choose from. Steps, spas, and benches are usually pre-formed.


Pools that are lined with vinyl are built with metal or plastic frames above ground or set into the excavated hole. Prefab supporting walls or panels made of plastic, steel, or aluminum are joined to the frame, making a form that is then lined with heavy vinyl to form the pool shell. The bottom of a vinyl liner sits on a bed of sand or other material, while the top is held down by the coping, which creates a finished edge and also acts as a border for the pool deck.


Commercial swimming pools often come with more stringent safety requirements, such as lifeguards on duty, locking gates or limited access. Pool Patrol pool alarms can easily add even more security to your commercial swimming pool, regardless of shape or construction. Hotel swimming pools are a great option for Pool Patrol pool alarms, adding necessary security for your guests. Even Olympic pools or other large competition swimming pools above the 20’ x 40’ size limitations can benefit from Pool Patrol pool alarms by utilizing multiple floating units in a single pool.


An above-ground pool is one of the most affordable pool styles, touted for its practicality and easy maintenance. So, if you’re low on finances and want to create a fun water zone for your family, this is the ideal option.

For starters, it’s easy to install and does not entail an elaborate procedure, unlike other designs and styles. You can choose from a wide variety of layouts and even pick the construction material as per your requirements. Furthermore, you can also find above-ground pool options that are portable and include built-in features like jet sprays and lights.


An architectural pool necessarily must have structure and symmetry. It’s all about precise lines and layout, that more often than not correspond to the shape of the house. Also, it’s made using the same materials as the house for a neat and cohesive look.


These in-ground pools are built with panel walls that are fastened together and sit on a concrete foundation. A custom-made vinyl liner then covers the entire pool.


The conventional building material of choice for in ground pool construction is concrete. This type of pool begins with excavation and a framework of steel. Concrete is poured and then sealed with a coat of plaster (which can be re-applied over the years as needed). In recent years alternatives to plaster have become popular, including pebble or glass aggregates and tiles. Using a reinforced steel and concrete base is a tried and true method for pool building and it can be extremely durable and easily customized to the owner’s specifications. But it is also costly, labor-intensive and can take many months of disruptive activity before anyone is able to use it. Another disadvantage is that concrete pools are susceptible to cracking as the ground settles or shifts.


A lap pool can be an attractive option. It can take the stress out of going for a swim, allowing homeowners to skip the gym commute, locker room, and crowded swim lanes. But installing a lap pool can also require permits, lengthy construction timeline, and additional landscaping.


Infinity pool is a pool with an edge over which water flows to give the appearance of the water extending to the horizon
