Pool Size

There is a lot to consider, but when it comes right down to it, it's a personal preference. The most common sizes are 15' x 30' and 20' x 40' but your pool can be sized to suit your needs. Remember to allow for walks, deck, patio and other points of interest and activities.


Most pools slope from 3' to 8' deep. Surveys indicate that 70% of all pool activity takes place in the shallow end, but diving can only take place in the deep end. Depth can affect cost in two ways: the amount of dirt to be removed (especially if rock is encountered) and more water demands larger filtration, chlorination and heating systems.


This is a matter of personal preference, but the amount of perimeter footage influences cost.


Serious swimming and training usually require straight walls (rectangle or dog-leg). Water play and refreshing dips allow more ornate shapes.


In an informal setting, free-form shapes work well. In more formal settings, discipline and balance work better.


Pools work best in open sunlight, shielded from prevailing winds and away from overhead and underground utilities (these can usually be moved).

Other Considerations

Do you need an area for sunbathing?

A shaded area for entertaining?

A bathhouse or bathroom facilities?

How will the pool look from the house? or patio?

Are there other landscaping considerations?
