Do You Need A Small, Medium or Large Pool?

Home » News » Do You Need A Small, Medium or Large Pool?

How do you decide which pool is the correct size for you and your family?

It is not an easy decision to make considering your circumstances may change later on.

The age of your children and how many you have, whether you are a social family that likes to invite friends over or does Mum like to swim laps?

These are all important factors when choosing the size and shape of your new pool.

Here at Darwin Fibreglass Pools & Spas we are quality swimming pool builders that can assist you every step of the way.

What Is the Main Purpose Of The Pool?

If the pool is to be used mainly for swimming and exercise then the shape and length of the pool are an important detail.

If, however, the pool is to be used for recreation purposes for young children to splash around in or for you to take a dip to cool off in the stifling Northern Territory heat then the size of the pool is less important.

A shallow area for toddlers and steps for easy accessibility should be included in the planning.

Shape and Design

Swimming Pools have come a long way in recent years so ask your local swimming pool builders about the vast choice of shapes and designs available.

You might fall in love with the lagoon shape or prefer the roman style pools for their length.

Other considerations apart from colour and style would be to think about your outdoor area and the space around the pool.

Planning your entertaining area or maybe an outdoor kitchen for those pool parties is important when you consider what size, shape and design of pool will best fit your outdoor space.


When you look at the size of the pool, consider the safety aspect allowing enough room around the pool for a pool fence.  

Also consider the depth of the pool if teenagers want to jump in and they are also sharing the pool with toddlers, where a shallow area is more suitable.

Perhaps you want to consider having a medium to larger pool to allow for this.

Our swimming pool builders will take all of these aspects into consideration.


The larger the pool the more water and cleaning it will need, this could be a consideration if you want to keep an eye on your budget and if you are not going to be swimming lengths then it could be a small or medium sized pool will suffice.
