The best way to know if your backyard is big enough for a swimming pool is to contact a pool builder near you for an onsite evaluation. Many of Thursday Pools’ independent dealers will provide a complimentary evaluation and estimate.
When the pool builder arrives, it will be helpful if you have a copy of your surveyor report or plot plan available. This plan will show your lot specifications and property lines, along with your house and any other structures, and it will ensure you get the most accurate estimate. That said, here are some common factors that may affect the size of the swimming pool your yard can accommodate:
Depending on where you live, you should be able to apply for variances to keep your pool project on track, and your pool project may only encounter a few (or none) of these factors. We simply want to alert you of potential issues upfront so you can be better prepared and avoid any surprise costs down the line. Again, your pool builder is the expert here. He or she will most likely have experience dealing with just about every potential obstacle over the years, and will be able to help you find work-arounds.
Here are a few great Thursday Pools fiberglass pool designs for small backyards:
Our Sea Turtle design has all the great features of our larger fiberglass pools, including wide-open steps for easy entrance and exit from the pool, and elongated benches for sitting and visiting. The uniform, sport-bottom depth is great for water games and aerobics, and it’s designed to be swim jet system-ready so you can easily add in a swim jet system like BADU® to get the exercise benefits of lap swimming!
Pearl is a sweet little gem of a freeform pool that’s perfect for soaking up some sun and cooling off. The 12” deep tanning ledge accommodates two ledge loungers, and the wrap-around benches give you loads of places to relax and socialize. The swim area provides enough room to splash around and play.
If space is truly limited, you might be able to tuck a small wading pool into your backyard, and still enjoy all the benefits of the fiberglass pool lifestyle. Wading pools are great for little ones learning to safely enjoy the water, and they’ll still provide a great backdrop for parties and entertaining.
It’s time to take the plunge! Which pool will YOU choose? Do your research and get the information you need to make an informed decision before you buy, and you’ll enjoy a lifetime of low-maintenance, fiberglass pool enjoyment.
