    8 Key Considerations When Designing a Family Pool

    By Laci
    Not all private pools are built alike and we're not just talking about rectangles versus kidney shapes here. Each homeowner builds a pool for their own  specific reasons and the design of their pool will reflect ultimately that. Some people want that perfect vacation home getaway, and build themselves a cool lagoon. Some build long, deep rectangles for lap swimming, possibly without a shallow end since their goals are solely centered around exercise. While leisure is great, and exercise is encouraged, the largest category of people looking to add a new pool to their backyard, is parents seeking the ultimate fun spot for their children to learn to swim, enjoy many happy pool parties, and make endless summer memories from their own backyard.

That being said, we may be able to help you “ballpark” it (it’s just going to be a big ball-park).
