Determining the Size of Your Swimming Pool

Determining the Size of Your Swimming Pool

The right size for your swimming pool will vary based on many different factors.

There is a plethora of considerations to be made when deciding to install a swimming pool. Such considerations include what shape it will be and what materials are used to create it. Size is another factor to keep in mind during the planning process. Pools come in many sizes, and determining the right size isn’t always simple. The right size for your swimming pool will vary based on many different factors.

What Purpose Does Your Pool Have?

This question may seem simple at surface level, but you’ll have to think heavily about how you will use your pool over the many years you’ll hope to get out of it.

If your swimming pool will be used recreationally, the size of the pool will be determined by the size of your family. We suggest 18-36 feet if you have between 6 and 8 family members. Families with fewer than six members might be better off with a pool of 16-32 feet. Make sure to include both shallow and deep ends so that everyone going for a swim has a place to enjoy themselves.

Pools used mainly for exercise should be at least 30 feet in length, while pools that are meant for athletes might be better at 40 feet.

How Much Living Space Do You Have?

Since not all yards are the same size, all pools will have different sizes too. Generally speaking, the more outdoor space you have, the larger your swimming pool can be. Don’t make a pool that’s too large simply because you have space, though. Every part of your pool should be getting regular use, so make sure you don’t pay for more than you plan to use.

How Often Will Your Swimming Pool Be Used?

Speaking of use, how often you use your swimming pool is a big deal. The size of your swimming pool impacts its maintenance requirements, so the work you put into maintaining it should be worth the enjoyment you get.
