What are freeform pools?
A freeform pool is any pool that isn’t a specific, pre-made shape. While many pools are square, rectangular, or even a perfect circle, freeform pools mimic nature.
With plenty of curves, more natural elevations and an appealing shape, a freeform pool can be made to fit spaces of all different shapes and size, whether you’re looking for something wraparound, something that blends into your garden or something that suits a wilder outdoor space.
What are the benefits of a freeform pool?
At Ideal Pools, we believe there are many benefits to opting for a freeform pool over a more traditional right-angle pool space. These include:
Freeform pools are pleasing to the eye, and as such make the perfect addition to any garden where minimalism and sharp lines aren’t the order of the day.
If you want more of a ‘wild’ feel to your back yard, then a freeform pool might suit you best. Additional features like bridges, islands and even tables and chairs further add to the aesthetic appeal.
Making the most of your space
An oddly-shaped yard may not be suitable for a standard pool. Freeform pools can be adapted to fit a range of spaces and shapes, making them far more ideal if you’re short on precisely proportioned outdoor space.
This means you can get the most length out of your pool for exercise and fun year-round.
Added home value
Any pool will increase the value of your home, but freeform pools top the list. If done correctly and tastefully, a freeform pool is a unique pool that any potential buyer will want to look twice at. A standard pool is nice, but buying a home with a completely original pool is a different thing entirely.
How are freeform pools installed?
Usually, installing a freeform pool starts with working with us to pick the size, design, shape and features of your pool. Once you’ve decided what you want, the next step is digging a hole that matches those specifics. Concrete, fibreglass or vinyl liners can then be used to create the pool itself, depending on your specific requirements and how you want the pool to look.
How do you maintain freeform pools?
As with any pool, maintaining your freeform pool is simply a matter of keeping it clean, using the right filters and chemicals and performing regular maintenance. Using a pool maintenance service for your freeform pool is the ideal way to keep your pool looking great year-round, or you can do it yourself if you’d prefer to save on maintenance costs.
