Medium Sized Free Form Pool with Tanning Ledge
The Costa Azul is a moderately sized fiberglass swimming pool with a free form layout and a comfortable tanning ledge in the shallow end! Like many of our other tanning ledge designs, this pool is quickly becoming a crowd favorite due to the wide platform available for relaxing and tanning (while sitting in just a few inches of water).
Tanning ledges are sought after quite frequently nowadays, and it’s likely due to the development of signature pool furniture, such as the *Ledge Loungers. These water chairs are a classic design that come in a wide variety of color options and seating arrangements *(available through Fiberglass Pool Guyz). You can add a comfortable side table, classic or deep chaise and even attach a sun visor that holds an iPad!
Now if you have to imagine yourself staying home this summer for a Staycation, what would be a better way to enjoy long afternoons outdoors than with water furniture, a movie on the iPad and your favorite adult beverage? We can’t think of many other things that we enjoy more and it’s for this reason that the Costa Azul and our other tanning ledge designs are booming in popularity!
Let’s Talk about Size
If you’re wondering how much backyard you’re going to need to fit the Costa Azul, let us share some insight. This pool is a classic design that fits most backyards very easily!
For starters, the Costa Azul has an overall length of 31′ 6.75″ x 13′ 11″ (wide). For homes with a traditional 50′ lot line, this is the perfect size and it provides plenty of swim space without it feeling too small or that it takes up the whole backyard.
Additionally, the Costa Azul includes a 5′ 6″ deep end. For most swimmers this is a comfortable depth that allows you to cool off in the heat of the summer but doesn’t require you to tread water the whole time.
Lastly, the Costa Azul holds just 8,000 gallons – which for the rest of the pool industry is considered a smaller body of water. The benefit to our clients and any other fiberglass pool customer is the amount of chemicals required to maintain the Costa Azul. 8,000 gallons only requires a total turnover rate of 16.7 gallons per minute (if you’re allowing for an 8 hours turnover). This allows you to save money on the cost of pool equipment and you’ll consume less pool chemicals when compared to the traditional gunite swimming pool.
In other words, the Costa Azul is the perfect compliment to any backyard! It provides a large enough swim basin that you’ve got room to stretch out but it fits comfortable in backyards with traditional lot sizes (especially for newer homes around DFW). Additionally, the Costa Azul includes a comfortable & wide tanning ledge – perfect for lounging on hot summer days.
This pool is sure to be a crowd favorite and will provide years of fun and excitement for your home and family! Contact us today for a free estimate!
