Choosing a swimming pool is a balancing act, as you have to consider which pool will suit your usage needs as well as fitting nicely into your backyard. This is why medium pools are so popular with Australian homeowners.

What is a medium pool?

A medium pool is smaller than a large family pool, but larger than a plunge pool or spa. It is the ideal size for most backyards, creating a stunning focal point while still leaving plenty of room for landscaping, as well as the space to pursue other outdoor activities. This enables you to make the best possible use of the space, and enjoy every element of the outdoor lifestyle.

There are four pools in the Compass Pools range that are available in this medium size category: the X-Trainer, Vogue, Contemporary and Riviera. Each of these products is designed in a different style, so whether you prefer a streamlined rectangular pool, a more traditional curvaceous shape, or a long unimpeded corridor ideal for swimming laps, there is an option to suit your needs and the layout of your backyard.

This makes it easier for you to create a stunning and integrated design by choosing the pool which best matches the architectural style of your property. There are also customisation options for each pool, enabling you to personalise it to suit your tastes, including a wide range of colour choices and optional extras.

The benefits of medium pools

Medium pools are large enough to meet the needs of serious swimmers who want to swim laps, and families who want to play games and enjoy themselves in the water. They are also an ideal size for relaxation. Because of this, you can enjoy all the health and wellbeing benefits of swimming, while still having a pool which is a manageable size, safe for children, and easy to maintain. Compass Pools Australia’s exclusive technology also provides a serious benefit, including the Vantage self-cleaning system.

A medium pool also enables you to leave plenty of space for socialising and enjoying other outdoor activities in your backyard. Read on to discover more about the Compass Pools range of medium pools, and how to select the best model for you.
