What is a Tanning Ledge?It is an addition to your pool, which comprises of a shallow raised area or platform within the water. This expansive ledge can measure just a couple inches deep to over one foot. The idea is that you can relax in the water without the need to float or swim. These can be used by families with small kids, though most people position a few lounge chairs on the shelf, in the water, instead of using floating lounges in the pool’s deeper sections. You will need to consult your pool builder regarding the features, size, and depth that will work for you when you include a tanning ledge to your pool.
Enclosed shelfThis kind of shelf is mainly just a shallow, small, pool where a low wall separates it from the rest of the pool, similar to a connected hot tub. The Spillways allow the water to be shared with the pool. This installation is good for families with small kids since the wall between the tanning ledge and the rest of the swimming pool will stop children from wandering into places they should not be in. Additionally, some people opt to include water features such as jets or fountains to enclosed tanning ledges to transform them into an appealing point of interest when sunbathers are not using them.
Tiers or slopeLedges can also be tiered or sloped leading into the pool’s deeper sections; however, this is usually known as a beach entry style instead of a tanning ledge, although you might use it in mainly the same way.
Open shelfSome of these ledges are included in the swimming pool itself, like an extremely big step sticking out into a part of the pool. This is often an excellent installation for adults that need to sit in the water while they tan and simply go into a deeper area of the pool to swim. Tanning ledges are usually big enough for setting up a few lounge chairs or to accommodate numerous people.
