What Is A Cocktail Pool or “Spool”?

What is a cocktail pool?

Thinking of having your own swimming pool, but worried that your yard isn’t big enough? Or maybe there isn’t enough space? Consider a cocktail pool, or “spool”!

What Is It?

A cocktail pool, also called a “spool” (spa + pool), is a combination of a spa and a pool; the perfect solution to getting the most out of your limited space. It’s smaller than a standard pool, usually having a surface area smaller than 400 square feet. This type of pool is essentially an oversized spa. These “spools” can incorporate the same features that a spa includes, like jets, benches and heaters. This marriage of spa and pool brings you the benefits of both all in one, while utilizing your limited space in the best way.

Can I Use It Like a Standard Pool?

With a cocktail pool, you can still experience all the advantages of a standard pool, like having a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors as well as gather with family and friends. Since they are smaller, these pools can be heated just like a hot tub, extending your pool season into the colder months or even year-round! A cocktail pool can give your space the relaxing and luxurious aesthetic you desire.
