Personal Lap Pool Construction
A concrete lap pool is just what you need to get into shape. Even if you have limited space a courtyard pool with jets will do the trick.
For those who are serious about fitness a concrete lap pool is the ideal pool application. Traditionally, the length of a concrete lap pool is long enough so you, the swimmer, can achieve a reasonable amount of strokes and tumble turn at each end without feeling restricted. This length is governed by the fitness of the swimmer. For example if you compete or are an athlete you will become quite frustrated in, let’s say, a 10mt pool. Whereas, someone who just likes to jump in and include some laps in their fitness routine will be very satisfied with a 10mt pool. So careful planning is needed. Cozy Pools can help you make that plan.
Another factor to consider when choosing a concrete lap pool is the width. No one wants to swim and hit their hands or arms on the side. Swimming laps need to be unrestricted. Depending on your arm span, and then space either side, will give you an idea of the width that is needed that will be perfect for you. The entry and exit steps or ladder also needs careful positioning. Since when doing laps you tumble turn at each end it makes sense that the steps or ladder be on the sides. Positioning these is important, bearing in mind the orientation of the pool in relation to your backyard must also be considered.
For those with a limited outside area, a courtyard pool can easily accommodate your needs. With the innovative installation of a powerful swim jet system this can turn any size pool into a concrete lap pool. The courtyard pool will be multifunctional and make the perfect plunge pool.
In general, lap pools are shallower than the full size pools. The reason for this is that not only can you swim laps but it can also be used to walk laps to maintain fitness using the resistance form of training.
Not only can a lap pool be a way to keep fit it can also be a sparkling backdrop to your entertainment area. With the careful use of lighting, water features and colour a lap pool can become a work of art.
