Top 4 Swimming Pool Installation Trends in Toronto!
1. Lap Pools
Lap pools are made to be used for fitness as they offer many health benefits. These pools are long and narrow, in a rectangular shape. They are great for houses with less backyard space.

Cities like Toronto are famous for their compact pools. These are also known as Plunge pools and are ideal for homeowners with small backyard space.
3. Mineral Water Pools

Any pool can be converted into a mineral water pool by changing the pool’s water system. Mineral water pool’s system has silver and copper inside in its ionization unit.

4. Infinity Pools at Home
This year, the infinity pools shifted from hotels and resort to backyards of many Canadian homes and the trend is expected to continue in 2019 as well. Help yourself have a resort-like swimming pool installation by installing an infinity pool in your backyard.
Choosing any of these trends for a new pool installation depends completely on the space available in your backyard. Thus, you should consider a few points while picking a location for your swimming pool installation.
How To Select The Pool Installation Location
Consider the following aspects for selecting a swimming pool area or location in your backyard.
- Sun Exposure
If you live in a country like Canada, this becomes the most crucial aspect. Sun exposure helps to keep your pool water warm, naturally, thus cutting a bit down on your electricity cost of running a pool heater.
- Wind Exposure
Swimming pool installation with a proper wind exposure lowers the humidity, thus decreasing evaporation. This is important for home-owners who have indoor pools as they generally need to work on this.
Look for a pool installation that allows you to have ample space for storage for your floaties and swimming pool filters and other pieces of equipment for the off-season.
- Sight Lines
This has to be considered by home-owners with children. Choosing a location that is in a close visibility from an indoor living space will let you keep an eye on the pool area without you stepping out from your home.
Look for an area with better accessibility and in close proximity to your backdoor. Plan the entrance and exit towards the pool installation to have a clutter-free backyard landscape.
