How About A Spool?

The short answer is yes. The design experts here at California Pools pride themselves on their ability to design a perfect outdoor living area to fit your needs – big or small, simple or complex.

In fact recently, spools have become increasingly more popular for homes with limited space in the backyard or for those who want a simple water feature without a full-size pool.

What is a Spool?

A spool is a cross between a spa and a swimming pool; spools fit somewhere in the middle. Usually, a spool is smaller than an average swimming pool, but not quite as small as your average hot tub, and has features a spa would normally have (i.e., jacuzzi jets).
