You may have heard of the term “Sun Shelf” before, but maybe aren’t quite familiar with what it is. Perhaps you know it by some of its other names: baja shelf, pool with tanning ledge, or sun shelf pool. Some people even refer to it as a splash pad pool.
Put simply, a sun shelf (or any of its aliases), is the flat and shallow part of your pool that acts much like an extended step. It creates an area in which swimmers can play, lounge, cool off, or work on their tans.
This exciting design of a pool with a tanning ledge is making its presence known in backyard pools across the country. It’s perfect for people of all ages, and there are many reasons why you should get one for your inground backyard fiberglass swimming pool.
