Pool Trends for 2018

8 May 2018

Are you thinking about treating yourself to an in-ground pool this year? Here are a few current trends that might be of interest to you.

In-ground pools for 2018: turning heads

One of the trends in in-ground pools for 2018 is luxury. Not only do these pools allow you to cool off during the summer, but they’re also a backyard feature that’s spectacular to look at. People add eclectic elements to lend a touch of style and personality to their in-ground pool: a built-in waterfall, an island in the middle of the pool, a beach entrance, full-width steps, and more.

In-ground pools for 2018: small and sensible

Properties are getting smaller and smaller these days, but the dream of having an in-ground pool hasn’t faded one bit. Between the barbecue, the deck and the shed, an in-ground pool has to take up as little space as possible, not to mention the fact that is has to be enclosed and all of the mechanical components need to be hidden from sight, not only for esthetic reasons, but also to prevent them from disturbing the neighbors, who live ever closer. That’s why small in-ground pools are very popular this year. We’re talking about pools that are an average of 3 meters wide and 5 meters long.

For those who are dreaming of swimming laps at home, but don’t have the space for a full-size in-ground pool, a swim spa is the ideal solution, combining swimming and relaxation. Equipped with powerful river jets, swim spas are long enough so you can swim in place and practice swimming techniques in the comfort of your own home.

A colorful in-ground pool for 2018

Who said that the water in your pool always has to be crystal clear? Go off the beaten path for special occasions like parties, barbecues or even showers with AquaCouleur dyes, which allow you to add a fun tint to your pool water without posing any danger to your pool, your skin or your clothing.
