The narrow pool (lap pool) designed usually specifically for swimming, and is known as the “personal pool” or “pool for exercise.” Most often it is used by only one person for recreation, so that some architects integrated it as part of the room for exercise.
These pools are usually long and narrow, regular rectangular shape, although sometimes they can have mild irregular form. The pool is generally the entire length of the same depth with no shallow parts, so that it can be dangerous for children and pets. Pools may be heated or unheated, depending on the climate zone, and are easy to maintain. The long and narrow courtyard is the best for this type of pool. It is an excellent choice for swimmers. This pool can be surrounded by fine gravel and long wooden terrace.
