You’ve had a new custom pool designed to fit your landscape. Or maybe you’ve renovated your pool and added new safety features. You’ve had the water tested to make sure it’s chemically balanced. Now it’s time for the most important step: enjoying your pool.
To ensure your entire family spends time together, you want to find a fun swimming game that all ages can enjoy. You’re probably tired of the old staples, like Sharks and Minnows and Marco Polo. Your whole family can have a great time in your new pool with the following lesser-known (but just as fun) pool games.
At KrisCo Aquatech Pools and Spas we design and build Free-form Natural style Swimming Pools and Spas as well as linear/geometric swimming pools in traditional styles as well as stunning “vanishing edge” styles.
Linear or geometric pools provide a sharp, clean look that may be accomplished with some combination of the following design styles and features:
If you have a small or oddly-shaped yard, you might feel that a pool just isn’t possible. However, many tiny yards can house a beautiful pool that is not only functional but also the visual focal point of the space.
Don’t feel like choosing a small pool means you are settling for less than the best. Large sprawling pools are not always the best solution for your lifestyle. Pools don’t need to be large to provide a good time. Keep in mind that, unless you are frequently hosting large parties with avid swimmers, a small pool can easily meet your daily needs for a cool, calming swim.
Smaller pools are easier to maintain, simply because there is less water to filter and less surface area to clean. A small pool can also be great for a tight budget—it costs less to build, chemically treat, and heat a small pool. For the average family, a well-designed pool will provide hours of enjoyment, even if the size is reduced.
Here are some design ideas to consider when you only have a small space to work with.
Like many Americans, you may love the idea of having your own backyard pool to enjoy. However, not all pools have to look the same, and pools fulfill many types of roles, from beautifying your yard to giving you a place to exercise. You have many options, especially if you work with a custom pool designer like KrisCo Aquatech Pools & Spas.
Pick the perfect pool by thinking about what you want your pool to provide you with. If you keep reading, we’ll help you get started on designing the pool of your dreams.
