The Perfect Sized Pool – For You.

How big should your pool be? Well, there are certain restriction you should consider first, such as whether you are doing above or in-ground. Above ground pools will have limits based on physics, less than aesthetics. More than about 42 feet in length and the support needed for the walls becomes an unsightly contraption. In ground dimensions may be restricted by an HOA or other neighborhood rules, but usually are limited only by your imagination.

For instance, there is a pool in Algarrobo, Chile that is the largest in the world.

The World’s Largest Pool

This pool covers 1,013 meters (3,324 ft) in length with a total area of 8 hectares (19.77 acres), the pool is at the San Alfonso del Mar resort and was listed officially as the largest swimming pool by area in the Guinness Book of World Records in December of 2006.

The pool holds a staggering 66 million gallons of water and is the equivalent to more 6,000 25 yard long pools. It is a salt water pool and features paddle and sail boats. It is heated to about 10 degrees warmer than the ocean water beside it. It was built because the ocean at this point along the coast is actually too dangerous to swim in.

So, how big is too big for your property? The real answer lies in how often you plan to use your pool, how often you host “pool parties”, how many kids and how large is your property footprint.
