2. Tanning Ledge

Also called a Baja shelf or a Shamu shelf, a tanning ledge is a separate shallow area in your pool that is generally positioned at its end. It is 5 to 8 inches deep and serves as a perfect spot to catch some sunshine, sit with a book or simply chill.

If you have kids, a tanning ledge can be the ultimate feature addition to your swimming pool. It offers a safe setting for your kids to play and have fun. For young kids who are scared about stepping inside the swimming pool, a tanning ledge can be a good starting point to get them acquainted with the pool.

We offer tanning ledges that have both a straight side and a curved side, so they can elevate the aesthetics of your swimming pool to another level. With our customized tanning ledges, you not only get an additional lounging area but also the perfect spot to sunbathe.

3. Automatic Pool Cover

Automatic pool covers are a blessing. They are made using heavy vinyl which is much better compared to a solar cover. This means an auto cover can help heat your pool. If you own a heat pump, the cover can prevent excess heat from dissipating into the air helping you keep the heating costs low.

Another benefit of automatic pool cover is it helps to keep the dirt and debris at bay. In the case of a sandstorm warning, you can keep the pool covered so it does not become messy. You save a lot of time and maintenance money with automatic pool covers at your aid. Not to forget, if you have kids using the pool, there is no chance for them to sneak into the pool without your supervision.

You can jog on the spot similar to working on a treadmill.

6. Ample Seating

The fact that you have your very own swimming pool installed at home is proof enough that you are a water baby. But what about the times you would rather chill around a pool than be in it? Or, if you have a pool party and there are way too many guests? That calls for a proper seating plan. This is where abundant pool seating helps.

Often, pool owners are so focused on making the pool a hit with their friends and family that they neglect the additional features. Large benches or wrap around seating can cater to guests when there are more than just a few. From built-in benches and bar stools to lounge chairs and pool stairs, there are endless options to choose from.
