    swimming pool designsWith home-owners across Canada opening their swimming pools for the season, the team at Sun Covers Canada is delighted to take phone calls regarding proper sizing and cutting. One of the common questions we ask callers is to describe their swimming pool design or shape. The following are brief descriptions of backyard swimming pool designs or shapes.

    Kidney: Popular shape for small to large yards, looks like a kidney bean.

    Circular: Popular design, especially in above-ground models.

    Octagon: Another popular above-ground option.

    Rectangular: Classic design, often preferred by lap swimmers or those where space is at a premium.

    Figure Eight: A stunning pool design, suggested by pool professionals for residential settings. The figure eight visibly separates the shallow end from the deep end.

    Oval: Considered by many the most popular above-ground and in-ground swimming pool shape. Flexible in size, it is well suited to anyone with space considerations.

    Roman: Refers to swimming pools with rounded end zones and stylized corners.

    Geometric: Symmetrical and/or with linear or straight sides.

    Free Form: Defined as "any shape with the exception of geometric".
