Burlington Swimming Pools: Your Guide to the Different Pool Shapes (and How to Choose the Right One!)

In Canada, many homeowners are starting to have swimming pools installed at home where they can soak up the sun while enjoying relaxation and luxury living. One such area where backyard pools are becoming more popular in Burlington.

Why not take a dip in your backyard with an expert pool installation? In this guide, we’ll provide you with different shapes available for Burlington swimming pools in your luxurious outdoor spaces. 

Read on to learn more and find out which swimming pool shapes are most suitable for you.

Long Pools for Swimming or Sports

If you enjoy swimming, you’ll want a long, rectangular swimming pool where you can swim laps. These are also suitable for diving due to having a deep end in the middle, away from shallow parts which sit closer to the edges. These are perfect therefore not just for you, but for your kids also.

If you don’t have children, you have the option of a long pool without shallow ends. That way, you can enjoy putting in your lengths without affecting your kick-back. You can engage in whatever swimming technique you like, whether it’s the:

  • Frontstroke
  • Backstroke
  • Breaststroke


With these pools, you’ve also got the option of having either waterfalls, waves, or fountains installed. A swim spa is also available where you can add currents to make your swim more difficult or for when you’re enjoying some freestyling and wish to make it a little harder, or more of a workout.

You can pick your fill with our elongated pools at Prestige Outdoor Living.
