In Phoenix, a backyard pool is more than just a luxury — it’s an essential amenity that will allow you to truly enjoy the Arizona lifestyle that you crave. The sun is almost always shining in Phoenix, and the temperatures skyrocket throughout the summer months. Sometimes, the only way to stay cool is by lounging in the pool.

If you are interested in building a custom backyard pool in Phoenix, you will want to know more about the different types of pools that are available:

Lap Pools

Lap pools are in-ground pools that are shaped specifically for swimmers who want to exercise by doing laps. They are long, lean and usually deeper than the average in-ground pool. Lap pools are ideal for active adults who like to include swimming as part of their workout routine.

Diving Pools

Diving pools were once incredibly popular, but they have become less common in recent years. Nonetheless, homeowners who want to have a diving board will want to invest in a diving pool. A diving pool must be deep enough to keep the diver safe. There are many different diving board styles to choose from.

Play Pools

Play pools are pools that are shallow at both ends and deeper in the middle. Typically play pool depths are three feet deep at each end and five feet in the middle.

At Shasta Pools, we believe that every homeowner deserves the pool that will best suit their personality and their lifestyle. We do not have a one-size-fits-all approach to pool building.
