TYPES OF POOLS

Expatriate Lifestyle - - Homes & Living -

Above-ground Pool Cheaper be­cause you don’t have to dig a hole in your prop­erty.

In­fin­ity Pool

Spe­cially set up to look like it’s merg­ing into the ocean or the land­scape be­yond (usu­ally has a glass wall).

Lap Pool

Long and nar­row, th­ese pools are meant for do­ing ex­er­cise laps in.

Lazy River

It’s more a river than a pool, but if you have a lot of money to spare, you could build a pool canal that winds through your en­tire prop­erty like a water ride.

Plunge Pool

Small, shal­low and usu­ally filled with cold water, this pool is for cool­ing off (es­pe­cially af­ter a hot tub ses­sion) and loung­ing around.

Spa Pool

This can mean one of two things: a Jacuzzi-style hot tub with jets cir­cu­lat­ing heated water, or a swim­ming pool where jets pro­duce a ‘cur­rent’ that you can swim against for ex­er­cise or ther­apy.

Zero En­try Pool

This is where one side of the pool grad­u­ally slopes into the water, much like a beach gives way to the sea.
