Where Water Works: Your Guide to Swimming Pool Shapes

Homeowners looking to install the perfect pool have numerous considerations to make; something Palm City Pools is working to simplify. Today, we would like to discuss swimming pool aesthetics, specifically the various shapes of pools you can install.


Nothing beats the classic. From the water park to the Olympics, rectangles serve as the go-to shape for casual swimmers and professional lap swimming fans alike. If you are looking for a simple and versatile design, look no further than the classic rectangle with four sides and corners.


You can probably guess what theCenturion, Pompeii and Emperor models look like just by their names. Designed like a rectangular pool, but with stylised corners and rounded ends, they look and feel like an aquatic theatre—two words that perfectly describe ancient Rome itself. Exuding sophistication and imploring forwaterfall features, the Roman shape is one of Palm City Pools’ most demanded designs.


It should come as no surprise that another of history’s most influential civilisations would have a pool shape of its own. After all, it was the Romans and Greeks that claimed the Mediterranean and Black Sea basins as their ‘swimming pool and spa’. Though it is impossible for us to install fixtures of such immensity, our Commodore, Sandpiper, Seagull pool models can capture the geometric finesse of the Grecian shape.


Polygons not your thing? Then our Teardrop, Fiji andCalifornian pool shapes can provide your home with a body of water that emulates how nature makes them. The kidney shape makes for the perfect casual swimming experience, built for plays and non-Olympic dips. If you are looking for a subtle installation with minimal angular flourishes, a soft shape like Kidney is the way to go.
