Spools (Small Pools)

If you are looking to have a luxurious backyard but have a limited space to work with, you might be in the market for a Spool. A Spool, or a Cocktail Pool, is a small swimming pool design created as a solution to having a relaxing swimming pool fit for a small backyard or limited space.

The word spool is a combination of a spa and a pool. Spools are typically oversized spas or a smaller version of a pool somewhere around 12’ X 14’. Unfortunately, due to construction issues, spools are not necessarily less expensive than an average swimming pool, however it is much cheaper than a pool with a spa.

Cocktail Pools might be easier to maintain due to the smaller size, and a spool certainly might be an option for someone with a very small yard. The real Spool has spa features built into a small pool that is large enough to lounge in, and to do water aerobics in but easier to heat because of the size.
