Pool Shapes

One of the first steps is to determine the type of pool shape that you want for your pool. What do you want to use your pool for? Exercise? Leisure? Recreation? Lap pools are great for exercise as are rectangle pools. Leisure pools can be a variety of free form pools and you can add a spa next to a Kidney Shape, Riviera, and Monaco. Recreation pools need a uniform depth of 4 ft to play most games, usually these shapes are rectangle, lazy L, Double Roman, or Grecian. For diving pools or adding slides pools need a depth of 9 ft minimum.

Rectangle shapes are the most practical because you can easily add a pool cover without much problems, and they are the most common.

In-ground pools generally start with a size of 8' width x 16' length up to the standard 20' width x 40' length. Some commercial pools can be much bigger, but most fall within the range 8' x 16' to 20' x 40', with many sizes in between. Gunite pools can be anything you want to free form but most fall into the categories in image.

Average shallow end depth 3.5 ft. to 4 ft.
Average deep end 5 ft. to 6 ft.

Determine what you want to use the swimming pool for, Recreation, Exercise, or Leisure/Relaxation. Pick the shape and approximate size and give Chance Goodman
