Lap pools are becoming hugely popular features in Australian backyards. They look beautiful, and they are also highly practical, both for serious swimmers and for families. In addition, their shape lends itself perfectly to narrower backyards, making them an extremely versatile choice of backyard pool.

Why you should consider a lap pool

A lap pool is the height of chic. It is long and narrow in shape, making it ideal for creating a stunning focal point in your backyard. The shape offers naturally clean lines, so it is a streamlined and contemporary design which will instantly bring a touch of style and luxury to your property. As it has less width, it lends itself perfectly to creative landscaping, enabling you to get maximum usage from the rest of your backyard as well as your pool.

Lap pools are also ideal for those who take their fitness seriously. They offer a long, unimpeded stretch of water, designed for swimming laps, so you can improve your times and the overall state of your health and fitness easily in the privacy of your own backyard.

However, even for those who are less serious about swimming, a lap pool offers an ideal relaxation space, and it is also large enough to cater for your family needs if you have kids.

Compass Pools offers the ideal lap pool for you

Our three lap pool designs – the Fastlane, the X-Trainer and the Vogue – are all designed with different needs in mind. Each design is available in a choice of lengths, so you can easily find the perfect lap pool to suit your needs and the size and shape of your backyard.

In addition, we make maintenance easy, with all lap pools including the option of the Vantage self-cleaning system, and Bi-Luminite colours, which are specially protected not to fade or lose their appearance.
