Pools make a lovely year-round respite under Perth’s warm and sunny weather, especially during summer when the heat can be too much to handle. It’s no surprise, therefore, that pools have become a staple feature in many Perth homes. Fibreglass pools, in particular, are great options due to their durability, low maintenance requirements, and overall aesthetic appeal. When it comes to pool shape and size, however, should you go for a lap pool or a plunge pool?
Lap Pool. Lap pools are generally designed for swimmers or individuals who would like to maintain a certain level of fitness. Such a pool is long enough for anyone to perform a considerable number of strokes with every lap, and deep enough for a tumble turn at each end. The lap section is typically free of obstructions like ladders and steps, and the sides are made straight so the swimmer can move through the water smoothly and safely.
