Why geometric pools are so popular
Choosing a pool design is something of a matter of style and taste, but there are also functional considerations as well which is one of the reasons geometric pools remain so popular. Geometric pools range in size and design and the main thing that most have in common is their sharp corners. The most common geometric pool is the rectangle.
Everyone knows the rectangular shape and it has proven very functional for designing and building enjoyable swimming pools .This is the easiest shape to make and the most conducive to popular exercise such as swimming laps. When pool builders first came about and began building in-ground swimming pools, they were almost all rectangular. But the big boom of swimming pools happened after World War II when stars and celebrities began building new, large, modern homes with big swimming pools in the yards.
Geometric pools may actually be easier to maintain than those that are irregularly shaped. The simple shape lends itself to easy cleaning because you can get the vacuum and other cleaning tools into the corners and edges easily. This type of pool design also lends itself to creating a shallow end and a deep end and makes it possible to set up a diving board if you like.
Most people like to build deck areas around their pools and geometric pools easily lend themselves to these structures that can create a balanced pool area.
Modern geometric pool designs include many versions of squares, rectangles and other shapes. Additionally, if you’re considering attaching a hot tub to your pool, the geometric design works well for this combination. This style pool has a very crisp and clean look because of the sharp corners.
The new zero-entry pools are most typically rectangular in shape. These offer gradual deepening as a way to wade into the pool for a very nice beach-like experience and are great for small children and adults alike.
