The true definiton of a lap pool is "a swimming pool designed specifically for the purpose of swimming laps." We love a good lap pool design & we love taking the traditional definition & alterning it a bit, so it fits the wants/needs of our clients! Our designers work closely with architects to seamlessly integrate lap pools into home design plans. This provides the homeowner with an elegant, stylish water accent, as well as an excellent place to exercise. So yes, that is our secret...that a lap pool can be a stylish design accent, even a focal piece for your home in addition to the exercise benefits it provides.
Most often lap pools are long and narrow. This shape works especially well in modern spaces but lap pools can often be found in innovative places/spaces (see our photos below). Lap pools are usually one constant depth. Depending on location and climate, heating is often an option selected for a lap pool as well as including an automated pool cover.
In cases where clients have extremely limited space there is the option of installing an "endless" pool. Endless pools have a steady resistance current so the swimmer stays in the same place in the water, but gets a great workout swimming against the current.
Whether your motivation is exercise or a beautiful, custom design feature for your home, a lap pool may be the perfect choice. Oh, and know that your secret will be safe with us!
