What Type of Pool Should I Build?

September 29th, 2023

When it comes to your backyard, you want to be able to have as much fun as possible, but also be able to relax whenever needed. At Mirage Custom Pools in DFW, you can count on the swimming pool experts to provide you with a pool that can act as entertainment or relaxation when you need it most! Because a pool isn’t a small investment, we wanted to make sure you can choose a pool style to fit your needs most! Consider the following style needs before you choose what kind of pool you’d like for your home in Dallas Fort Worth.


Pools can be used for many activities, and relaxing is one of them. If you desire a pool for relaxation, you have many options to choose from! A great way to create a relaxing pool scene is by adding in water features around the pool, such as a waterfall. Serene sounds of moving water can create relaxation for you. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the beautiful rock water features we’ve provided for you.

Pool Adventure

If pool adventure is your go-to whenever you’re in a swimming pool, you may want to consider including water features, like water falls. A slide is always a great touch to an adventure filled pool, as well as the space to play water sports, such as water polo or volleyball. Volleyball is a great family-sized game that can allow for a lot of laughs and memories. Keep in mind that a great depth for a pool used for adventure is anywhere from 3 to 5 feet. So, go ahead and call all your friends over for that cannonball contest you’ve been wanting to have, because if you can dream it, we can make it happen!

Exercise or Sports Pool

If a pool is being used for exercise, it is considered a play pool. Play pools are generally designed to be only 3 to 5 feet deep. The depth of these pools make it a perfect environment for sports, such as swimming laps, basketball or volleyball. A perfect option after playing sports all day with your friends and family is relaxing in an attached spa.

Diving Pool

Diving pools are very different than a normal relaxation or adventure pool filled with play. With a diving pool, depth and minimum diving safety requirements must be met. We can design a diving pool any way you’d like, but we will always ensure that your pool will meet all the safety requirements for diving use. If you’re looking to avoid a diving board, consider having a diving rock platform or secluded grotto installed for your diving pleasure.

Pure Entertainment

Are you looking to go all out and entertain guests with a swim-up bar or complete outdoor kitchen with stools? A pool that has all the amenities you and guests are looking for in a pool may become a favorite place for everyone. Strategically placed umbrellas, chairs and a BBQ can really bring and the people in it, to life. A gathering place for family gatherings and parties, your pool has the ability to be designed specifically as an entertainer’s paradise.
