Lap Pools

The slim and streamlined design of lap pools (or contemporary pools) makes this style of pool optimal for those who are lacking space but still want a spot to exercise or chill out and relax.  Lap pools can be built in any dimension, and though they ideally are anywhere from 20'x40', they can easily be built as 10'x20' or even smaller depending on your space.

Cocktail Pools

Also referred to as “spools”, these “mini” pools are the ideal choice for anyone who wants a space for themselves and their friends and family to lounge comfortably to beat the heat.  Cocktail pools can include the exact same features as standard pools, including tanning ledges, negative edges, rock features, and water features such as waterfalls.Phoenix Swimming Pool Designs for Small Backyards | Shasta Pools and Spas Arizona

“J” and “L” Shaped Pools

Graze Google and you'll certainly come across swimming pool images that include “J” and “L” shaped pools.  These pool pictures exemplify how pool lovers can add some extra space to the traditional contemporary style or lap style pool by wrapping edges around their garden or home so that the pool creates a “J” or “L” shape.  The additional benefit to this style of pool is that the longer end allows for swimmers or other larger parties to swim and lounge, while the shorter edge provides an area for other bathers to congregate.Shasta Pool Builder Phoenix Arizona | View Our Gallery  Shasta Pools is a Phoenix pool builder who provides a variety of services including swimming pool remodeling, commercial pool building, and pool service and repair.
