Lap Pool Construction
A concrete lap pool is just what you need to get into shape. Even if you have limited space in your backyard a small plunge pool with jets will do the trick.
For those who are serious about fitness a concrete lap pool is the ideal pool application. Traditionally, the length of a concrete lap pool is long enough. This enables you, the swimmer, to achieve a reasonable amount of strokes and tumble turn at each end without feeling restricted. The length is governed by the fitness of the swimmer. For example if you compete or are an athlete you will become quite frustrated in, let’s say, a 10 metre pool. Whereas, someone who just likes to jump in and include some laps in their fitness routine will be very satisfied with a 10mt pool. So careful planning is needed.

How much do lap pools cost?
Lap pools can vary in cost depending on size. A large lap pool over 10 meters long can cost between $50,000 to $80,000 on a small domestic property. Whereas a small style lap pool of 6 meters long with swim jets can cost around $30,000 to $50,000.

Our team always suggest including everything you want as part of your pool design and pairing it back if you need to reduce the cost.

Lap Pools Dimensions
Lap pools can come in different sizes and dimentions. A factor to consider when choosing a concrete lap pool is the width. No one wants to swim and hit their hands or arms on the side. Swimming laps need to be unrestricted. Depending on your arm span, and then space either side, will give you an idea of the width that is needed that will be perfect for you. The entry and exit steps or ladder also needs careful positioning. Since when doing laps you tumble turn at each end it makes sense that the steps or ladder be on the sides. Positioning these is important, bearing in mind the orientation of the pool in relation to your backyard must also be considered.
For those with a limited outside area, a courtyard pool can easily accommodate your needs. With the innovative installation of a powerful swim jet system this can turn any size pool into a concrete lap pool. The courtyard pool will be multi functional and make the perfect plunge pool.
In general, lap pools are shallower than the full size pools. The reason for this is that not only can you swim laps but it can also be used to walk laps to maintain fitness using the resistance form of training. Not only can a lap pool be a way to keep fit it can also be a sparkling backdrop to your entertainment area. With the careful use of lighting, water features and colour a lap pool can become a work of art.
