The Magic Pool Is Here!

Posted on: November 13th, 2015 by Ashton Pools

Limited on space? Don’t want a huge pool to maintain? Want the option of using your pool year round? Have you considered a swim spa but don’t really like how they look? We have the Magic solution!

The Magic pool is an architecturally designed 8×20 rectangle pool with a 4′ water depth and features a full length bench along the length, as well as a deeper bench along the width. This design is perfect for lounging, playing and entertaining. The best part is it can be installed just about anywhere! With inground, above ground and partially above ground options, this pool can be incorporated into most existing backyard layouts, and even backyards where a slope would make a pool hard to install.

Better Than A Swim Spa!

Many people like the idea of installing a swim spa instead of a pool – its a hot tub and a pool! You don’t have to excavate! You can use it year round! But there are a few downsides to owning a swim spa. Most swim spas do not have a separate swim area and spa area, which means you have to choose between using it like a pool or a hot tub – you really can’t swim in 100 degree water, and you probably don’t want to relax in 85 degree water. Most swim spas use 5.5kW electric heaters, which are slow to heat the water and are expensive to operate year round. The swim spa models that do feature separately heated swim and spa areas tend to have a $30K price tag – wow! You can install an inground pool for that price! In contrast, our Magic fiberglass pools can be heated with a gas heater, which can increase your water temperature from 85 to 100 in less than 2 hours at a much lower cost. This means you can use your pool all day and easily heat it up by evening if you would like to relax.

The other trouble with swim spas is that they stick out like a sore thumb in a typical backyard landscape, similar to any above ground pool. Homeowners usually need to install decking or a platform to access the water, which can also look unappealing. Installing a swim spa partially in the ground is difficult and not recommended, but our Magic pool can be installed either in the ground, above the ground or anywhere in between to match up with existing decks and patios to give a built-in look. With square corners, a flat top ledge and an modern architectural design, this pool is designed to improve the look of your backyard landscape and can be easily finished with standard landscaping materials –  surround it with wood, stone, concrete, or any other type of deck and siding material. This pool is a true DIY project for anyone who knows how to install a deck.
