A lap pool is a much-underrated type of gunite pool. It offers a good spot to spend time with friends and family, it’s good for working out, and it can add a beautiful element to your Gulf Coast home’s design. Lap pools don’t need to boring; they can be a spot not only to exercise but a spot to sit back and enjoy the surroundings.

They are the perfect solution for smaller-sized areas and are easy to maintain. Take your workout program to a whole new level with a lap pool designed and built by Premier Pools & Spas of Gulf Coast.

Design of the lap pool

Lap pools often save space by running parallel to a home. Since a lap pool is usually situated near a patio, deck, or house, it’s possible to incorporate it into your existing design plan.

Their size makes these types of pools simple to clean and maintain. You can also combine them with a small hot tub, providing you with another small water feature that’s ideal for relaxing.

It’s important to landscape around your gunite pool for the overall look and feel of your swimming pool area. Add a little privacy by placing flowers, small shrubs, or bushes along your pool’s edges. You can also add character to your pool space with a grassy area or larger trees.

Characteristics of lap pools

Lap pools can fit in small spaces, making them perfect for those who want the benefits of a gunite pool without worrying about maintenance, or pool water taking over the landscaping.

Besides being perfect for hydrotherapy and exercises, lap pools are great for entertaining. Small kids can swim safely in them without parents having to stress. They can also offer a tranquil spot to sit, meet with friends and family, and enjoy hot days.


These pools are versatile, meaning they can be advantageous for you outside or inside your house. It’s easy to integrate a lap pool into your existing home to offer an in-home spa experience like no other, keep away the weather, and enjoy natural light.

Another growing trend is combining an outdoor and indoor lap pool. You can enjoy the coverage of a roof while still being outside and enjoying the weather. It can also be an easier area to clean since you can set up a drying or shower station before people return in the house.

Combination pool/patio areas make it simple to entertain family and friends, as well as enjoy a workout if you need to swim laps.
