The Ariella is a petite, free-form swimming pool that fits snugly into any backyard with limited square footage. We love this fiberglass swimming pool because of its relaxed features and basic layout. San Juan Pools designed it to contain all of the standard elements that homeowners enjoy. From a shallow end bench, tanning ledge, standard hopper (deep end) & free form layout – it includes our popular features compacted into a small frame.
The Ariella works exceptionally well for those who live in urban environments with limited yard space. Why? Mainly it’s a petite size. Amazingly, this pool only takes up 179 SQFT with outside dimensions of 11′ width & 19′ 10″ length. Therefore, you could situate this design into small backyard spaces or place it strategically in a specific location of a larger backyard. However you situate this free form pool, you’ll enjoy its narrow footprint and ease of maintenance!
Upon entering into the Ariella, you’re immediately greeted by a beautifully curved set of shallow end steps. These steps give way to a wide shallow end bench; this can also serve as a tanning ledge.
We decided to implement a curved set of shallow end steps. The main reason – it provides a lagoon-style layout that is both relaxing and aesthetically pleasing. You are free to pair this set of entry steps with a handrail if you’d like to boost the safety and accessibility of these steps.12
This design includes a gorgeous curved set of entry steps and a tanning ledge. We kept the design of this fiberglass pool pretty simple and added a standard hopper with a maximum depth of 4′ 11″. Therefore, if you’re into entertaining, have grandchildren, or want some peace of mind; the “shallow” deep end may be a perfect choice for you. All in all, this is a wonderful pool model that has a lot to offer in its compact design.
