Pools for Small Spaces

When it comes to pools, bigger isn’t always better.

You want a pool, but you don’t have a lot of space in your backyard. You may think your dream of being able to swim at home is no longer a possibility, right? Think again!

There are a lot of reasons why smaller pools are just as good — if not better —than big pools. Between the space, the cost, and the upkeep, you might find years down the line that you’re glad you chose to purchase a small pool instead of a larger model.

It's just 9 feet by 15 feet, but an entire family of competitive swimmers dip into this Original Series pool to stay active on their own schedules. Wedged into this gated enclosure, the Endless Pools current lets them swim in place and enjoy visits from furry family members.

Even if you don’t have a backyard at all, think outside of the box! You could install a small pool in your garage, sunroom, or basement! Indoor pools can be just as fun, and they can be kept open year-round! Plus, you don’t have to worry about debris in the water.

So, keep your pool dreams alive, and start thinking about how a small pool could be the right fit for you.

Benefits of a Smaller Pool

There are lots of reasons to buy a small pool, and there’s a lot more that you can do with a small pool than you might think.

For one thing, a smaller pool takes up less space. Even if you have room, you might want a smaller pool so that you can optimize the space in the rest of your yard or house.

When Steve and Angela added an addition to their home, they explored pools for small spaces and chose this Performance pool. With a garage door and a lovely woodland view, they don't need much space for their daughters to swim, play, and create a lifetime of memories.

Smaller pools often cost less than larger ones, since they require fewer materials.

They’re also less expensive to maintain. Smaller pools require less water, and fewer chemicals to make sure that water is clean. It’ll cost less money to heat the pool, too, and using less water in your pool is better for the environment.

And really, what can you do in a big pool that you can’t also do in a smaller one? Especially in Endless Pools our models, the smooth, adjustable current ensures you can swim without interruption while always staying in the same spot!

Uses of a Small Pool

If you don’t have the space or the money for an enormous pool, you can still get the experience that you want with a smaller pool, and for a fraction of the price.

Talk about pools for small spaces! This sunroom had just enough room for an Original pool for the grandkids -- plus seating to watch them have fun and grow strong. Our Original Series pools assemble onsite, so you can even set one up in an existing room to maximize space.

Small counter-current pools offer a better, more enjoyable swim than you can get in a full-size backyard pool. Exercising in a small pool is still possible without swimming! You can jog in place, do jumping jacks, or even yoga.

Small pools are good for recreational use, too. Whether it’s playing games, splashing around, or just hanging out on a hot summer day, a pool will bring a lot of fun for your family.

And if you want a pool for your kids, the size of the pool will matter even less to them. That’s because kids will be excited at the concept of having a pool at all. In their eyes, the pool will look a whole lot bigger!

A small pool is certainly better than no pool at all, especially when that pool offers a smooth, enjoyable swim in deep water. After all, the depth of a pool matters at least as much as the length or width.
