Custom Swimming Pool Design Concept

Traditional Swimming Pool Design

When we say “Traditional Swimming Pools,” we’re referring to any regular style pool that fits within the standard shape range. Traditional style pools aren’t defined by a unique design theme, per-say, and is usually built to match the existing residential or commercial environment. The classic or traditional pool is a “vanilla” style pool design, so they’re great for clients on a budget. It’s quite common for Clarity Pool Service to add-on features such as waterfalls, sheer water walls, fire pits, deck jets, bubblers, and other features that customize a traditional style of swimming pool design. The conventional swimming pool designs are tried and true, and there’s usually less risk when blending it into the existing properties environment.

Tropical Swimming Pool Design

Tropical swimming pools are designed to mimic tropical lagoons. These pool shapes are unique and often add landscaping and rock/waterfall features to keep the tropical aesthetics of the design. Tropical swimming pools usually have beach style entry with a gradual slope to closely resemble a beach rather than the steep angle drop-offs from a typical swimming pool design. It is not unusual to have multi-colored pebble flooring to give the water light to dark appearances from the shallow end to the deep end.

Lap Style Swimming Pool Designs

Lap Swimming Pool Design

Lap swimming pools are typically built to accommodate single or multiple user swimming lanes. Lap pools are for exercise as well as competition style racing. The lap pool is usually rectangular, and they typically have distinct markings at the bottom of the pool that signify the individual lap lanes. These linear markings are known as lane guides, which help the swimmer to navigate while swimming. If they didn’t exist, encroaching on another swimmers lane would be commonplace, leading to potential collisions amongst swimmers. A “T” shaped mark, or some other unique markings let the swimmer know they reached the end of the swimming lane.


Plunge Swimming Pool Design

Plunge swimming pools are small, shallow pool structures that are designed for wading, soaking, and quick dips to cool off. These smaller pools are often used by atheletes to cool down after work outs. For properties that do not have big yards for installing a full size swimming pool, plunge pools can offer a perfect solution. Plunge pools will typically have choices of build materials and often decorated with rock formations, waterfalls, and other landscaping features./p>
