What are some popular fiberglass pool designs?2024-02-28T10:35:53-05:00

Fiberglass pools come in a wide array of designs, catering to diverse tastes, needs, and backyard sizes. Leisure Pools, as a leading fiberglass pool manufacturer, offers an extensive selection of popular designs that combine aesthetic appeal with practical functionality. Some of the most sought-after fiberglass pool designs include:

  1. Rectangular Pools: These classic, geometric pools are perfect for a sleek, modern look and are versatile for swimming laps, relaxing, or playing pool games. They often feature built-in steps and benches for added comfort and convenience.
  2. Kidney-Shaped Pools: With a natural, curved shape, kidney pools blend seamlessly into any landscape design. This shape is ideal for families looking for a pool that offers areas for both play and relaxation.
  3. Freeform Pools: These pools come in unique, irregular shapes that mimic natural bodies of water. Freeform pools are perfect for creating a tropical oasis or a backyard retreat, allowing for imaginative landscaping and features like rock formations or waterfalls.
  4. Plunge Pools: Compact and deep, plunge pools are designed for cooling off and relaxation rather than for swimming laps. They are ideal for smaller spaces or as an addition to an existing outdoor living area.
  5. Spa Pools: Often combined with larger pools or installed as standalone units, spa pools are designed for relaxation and hydrotherapy. They typically feature built-in seating and jet systems for an at-home spa experience.
  6. Lap Pools: Specifically designed for fitness and training, lap pools are long and narrow, facilitating uninterrupted swimming. They are an excellent choice for serious swimmers or those with limited space who want to maximize their exercise routine.

Leisure Pools distinguishes itself with its commitment to quality, durability, and design innovation in each pool it manufactures. The company’s offerings are crafted from the highest quality fiberglass and finished with vibrant, long-lasting gel coats, ensuring that every pool is not only aesthetically pleasing but also built to last.

How do I find out if there are any easements on my property?2024-02-28T10:36:38-05:00

To determine if there are any easements on your property, it’s essential to conduct a thorough investigation as easements can significantly impact your ability to install structures like swimming pools. An easement is a legal right for someone else to use a portion of your property for a specific purpose, such as utilities, access roads, or drainage systems. Here’s how you can find out about any easements:

  1. Property Deed: The simplest way to start is by examining your property deed, which should outline any known easements on your property. Easements are usually recorded here, giving you initial insight into any that exist.
  2. Local Government Records: Visit your local government office, such as the county recorder, county assessor, or city planning department, to access public records related to your property. These offices maintain detailed maps and records of all registered easements. They can provide you with information on any recorded easements that affect your property.
  3. Title Search: Conducting a title search is a more thorough way to uncover easements. This process involves reviewing public records to trace the history of ownership and identify any easements that may not be listed on your current deed. While you can do this yourself, it’s often more efficient to hire a title company or a real estate attorney, as they have the expertise to navigate complex property records.
  4. Survey: Hiring a professional land surveyor can provide a comprehensive overview of your property, including the boundaries and any easements. A survey can reveal not just recorded but also unrecorded easements based on the property’s usage and history.
  5. Homeowners Association (HOA) or Neighborhood Association: If your property is part of a homeowners association or a similar organization, check with them. They might have knowledge of easements that affect your property or neighborhood.

Understanding easements is crucial before undertaking any major project on your property, such as installing a fiberglass pool.

What are setback requirements, and why are they important for pool installation?2024-02-28T10:15:22-05:00

Setback requirements are specific regulations that dictate the minimum distance a swimming pool must be placed from property lines, buildings, and other structures on a property. These requirements are crucial for ensuring safety, privacy, and compliance with local zoning laws and building codes. Setback distances can vary widely depending on the jurisdiction, the size of the property, and the type of pool being installed, making it essential for homeowners to consult local regulations before beginning the pool installation process.

For pool installation, understanding and adhering to setback requirements is important for several reasons. Firstly, they help to maintain a safe distance from other structures, reducing the risk of damage to property and ensuring that the pool is safely accessible for emergency services if needed. Secondly, setback requirements are designed to protect the privacy of both the pool owner and neighboring properties, creating a buffer zone that helps to reduce noise and maintain a comfortable distance between homes. Finally, compliance with setback requirements is legally necessary to obtain the necessary permits for pool installation. Failure to comply can result in fines, mandatory removal or relocation of the pool, or other legal complications.

Leisure Pools recognizes the importance of these regulations and advises all customers to work closely with local authorities and qualified installers to ensure that their pool installation meets all necessary setback requirements. By doing so, homeowners can enjoy their new pool with the confidence that it is not only a beautiful addition to their property but also a compliant and safely installed one.

Are dark pools (aka black bottom pools) warmer?2024-02-28T03:50:18-05:00

Dark pools – also known as black bottom pools – easily stand out from others thanks to their bold, dramatic color.

One of the main advantages of a dark bottom pool compared to light colored pools is that the darker color will help absorb more of the the sun’s heat to increase the water temperature accordingly.
