Choosing Between a Free-Form and Rectangular Swimming Pool

Is a rectangular swimming pool right for you? Or should you choose a free-form pool?

Are you thinking about adding a swimming pool to your home? There are some things you’ll want to consider before investing in a residential swimming pool. One of the most important considerations for your swimming pool would be the shape. There are two main types: the free-form pool and the rectangular swimming pool. Which would work best for your backyard? Here is a helpful guide to make it easier for you to determine which type of pool makes the most sense in your space.

The Proximity Of The Pool To The Home

It is important to consider how close or far away the pool is from your home. This will help you decide which type of pool would make the most sense in your backyard. If your pool is very close to the home, it might be beneficial to have a rectangular swimming pool. Taking the home’s architecture into account is a key aspect of determining what type of pool would work best for the space. 

How Your Pool Will Mostly Function

Your pool’s primary functions must be taken into account when debating between a free form or rectangular swimming pool. Knowing how you and your family will ultimately utilize the swimming pool can help inform your decision-making process. As a result, knowing how your pool will function once installed is the best way to approach swimming pool shopping effectively and efficiently. 

Automatic Pool Covers

If automatic pool covers are a must for your swimming pool, then you can end up easily deciding between a free form or rectangular pool. Only rectangular swimming pools come designed with an automatic pool cover. As a result, if you can live without an automatic pool cover, then a free-form swimming pool might suit your needs better than a rectangular one. Ultimately, we recommend contacting an experienced professional to discuss which type of pool will work best for your needs.
