Custom Swimming Pools: Options Abound  

by Pool Builders on 01-26-2011 in Articles

Putting a pool in the back yard is a dream of just about every homeowner, and there are some customizable options available that will make your pool the envy of the neighborhood. Before hiring someone to put in a traditional pool, look at some custom swimming pools suitable to your lifestyle

The regular rectangular tiled look is a thing of the past. Most homeowners want their houses to be a smidge different in appearance from the rest of the houses on the block, and custom swimming pools can help you to accomplish that goal. Your backyard is an extension of your home; it should be like another room where you can both relax and function, and style should not be overlooked just because it is outside. Aesthetic features such as tropical themes, functioning show lights, and different tile configurations that accent the rest of the home are all available options, but there is so much more than beauty to consider.

What are your personal reasons for having this amenity installed? Do you have children who you know would love the built in recreation, but you worry about their safety? Consider looking into safety options such as alerts and alarms. You can have the body of water monitored for safety by installing an alarm that will sound when it is disturbed, or you can even have landscape and structure provided that will separate the water from the children's regular play area, so that you can have the freedom of back yard play on a nice day as well as the resort luxury of a swimming area.

If you are excited about using the water as a natural resistance option for exercise, you can go a step beyond by having features such as jets and currents installed. Walking against or swimming against such currents add a degree of resistance to water training that is unsurpassed by any land equipment. The inclusion of ledges, steps, pull bars, or other pieces of equipment can also add convenience to your routine.

Competitive swimmers may want to consider lap lanes, high dives, sensory timers, etc. for the added pleasure of getting to train at home, and many features such as beach entries, waterfalls, river runs, and spa additions are available for custom design. Chlorine and salt water options are abound, and your options are no longer limited to wall texture and tile color.

Resort luxury at your door step is readily available by asking some simple questions and taking a few surveys about your needs and desires for your finished product. If you can dream it, it can be custom built in your own back yard making your house the envy of the neighborhood.
