|Fiberglass Lap Pools
Swimming pools are unique in that they are a means for both relaxation and exercise. A person can spend a lazy day simply floating around a pool on an oversized inflatable raft, or he can burn calories and work his arms, legs, and abs by doing laps. A lap pool is often the best bet for a person who wants to take advantage of a pool's dual nature.
Lap pools are laid out differently than typical swimming pools. A lap pool provides a clear path from one end of the pool to the other so a swimmer doesn't have worry about running into a wall, or coming face-to-face with a diving board. Lap pools usually maintain a constant depth, as well. This allows a swimmer to maintain a steady stroke while he is taking laps.
The Benefits of Fiberglass Lap Pools
Fiberglass lap pools, like the designs we offer at Midwest Pools, have several advantages over concrete lap pools. The surface of a fiberglass lap pool is smoother, and makes the initial push off easier. It also prevents a swimmer from cutting his foot on the bottom or side of the pool when he goes into a flip or turn at the end of a lap.
The process of installing a fiberglass lap pool is fast and relatively simple. Also, fiberglass pools are easy to heat, so a person who wants to continue swimming laps into December will have no problems. Our fiberglass pools are more durable than any other pool on the market so they will not be affected by time, the weather, or the pounding they take from serious exercise.
