The purchase of an in-ground swimming pool is a serious matter that you only do once in a lifetime. Obviously, the choice of shape is primarily based on aesthetics. Then come the criteria of usage, integration into the garden, ease of maintenance and, above all, budget.

As the name indicates, square pools have right angles and sides of equal length. Their stylish design gives a great deal of originality to your garden. As they are generally flat-bottomed, this type of pool is designed for family bathing.

Square pools are not very functional, but why?

Square pools are not adapted to swimming. They are mono-zone pools that are essentially used for cooling off and relaxation. For the same volume, there are other types of pool that combine swimming and relaxation. In addition, they are more difficult to cover. Being wider than oval or rectangular pools, they require a cover or shelter with a greater span.

At Waterair Swimming Pools, we have many alternatives.

In fact, our pools adapt perfectly to every type of natural terrain, even steep slopes. They are designed to best respond to the functions required by each user. Swimmers, fans of aqua-siestas and water games – everybody will be happy!

Good to know when calculating the area

A 20 m² area with a different layout does not necessarily provide the same usage. Proof in figures:

For example :

Oval pool: 7.30 x 2.96 = 20 m²

Rectangular pool: 6.43 x 3.18= 20 m²

Square pool: 4,47 x 4,47 = 20 m²

Round pool: 6.5 m of diameter for 20 m²  ((2.54)² x 3.14)
