Advantages and drawbacks of a round steel pool

In an above-ground configuration, the round pool has many advantages: due to its perfect roundness, it's free-standing, which makes it the most sturdy option for an above-ground pool. It also allows optimum water flow and thus very efficient filtration.

This shape is less suitable for a fully in-ground pool, however. A fully in-ground round pool will be difficult to locate in a garden where space is lacking. Indeed, a pool that's as long as it is wide can be difficult to position in any garden. You therefore need to ensure that your garden is big enough to accommodate both this shape of pool and any poolside area you want to add.

Covering a large round pool is also more complex. It will be difficult to add an enclosure or a bar cover on a 6m-diameter round pool, for example.

Because of these restrictions, we've made the choice, at Waterair Swimming Pools, to no longer offer this type of pool. We have, however, reviewed and designed pool shapes that have all the advantages of round ones, including better water flow and ease of assembly and maintenance. And we've done so in a way that will allow you to have a tailor-made pool that suits your terrain.

Fully in-ground round pool: The Waterair Swimming Pools alternative

The structure of a Waterair pool is composed of modular panels made of thick corrugated steel. This technology allows great freedom of form while remaining easy to install and particularly economical. That's why we're able to offer you a wide choice of pool shapes.
