Las Vegas, NV USA
We get photos almost every day, from customers who are
proud of their new swimming pools or hot tubs.
Obviously, we do not have the time or space to feature
them all - but this one caught our eye as particularly
nice and special.
The photos below were submitted by Marty & Nancy Bates
of Camarillo, California, USA - just this past January
(2011). They had noticed that there were not a lot
of lap pool photos on either the Poolandspa.com "Cool
Pool Photo Gallery", or anywhere else on the internet.
So they wanted to share their beautifully designed lap
pool with others - who might be thinking of building
Although not too common, lap pools offer the convenience
of long swim lengths for active swimmers, and are also
appreciated by folks who may not have enough room in
their backyard for the typical sized, wider, inground
With this pool, they went "all-out", including both a
built-in hot tub spa with an overflow waterfall as well.
The design was finished off by exceptionally beautiful
stone deck work all around the pool and spa areas - as
well as a pair of dual, matching walk-in steps towards
the house-end of the pool for easy entry. Kudos to
the designer, the builder, and to the Bates family, for
the exceptional design and execution of this state of
the art, beautiful and functional backyard play land !
Enjoy and dream!
