  • Utility: The utility of the pool is the primary factor that affects the design. If the pool is for a school where students need to learn the swimming and practice to participate in competitions, it can have such a design where helps develop the stamina of swimmers. Similarly, if it is for members of a club then the facilities are majorly affected by the pool design and swimming amenities. If the pool is to be used by public it can be of large size but if it is for private use than it can be of a medium size with just 1 or 2 meter of depth.
  • Ownership: The ownership of a pool is another factor that affects its design. In public utility where the club or government or any other agency is the owner it needs to have safer designs while for a private use one can choose from eclectic designs as per personal preference. For instance, pool designs are generally not much intricate in case of rooftop pools in large housing complexes.
  • Intended activity: If swimming is the primary activity then the length and depth of the pool carry more weight rather than a beautiful design but if it is to be used for the recreational activities then it must be of a great design to fill one’s mind and heart with great delight.
