Private swimming pools are considered a luxury because of their development cost. With a lot of other alternatives available these days, you can have your private pool at a fraction of cost. One such option is a shipping container pool. The giant shipping containers can be modified into beautiful swimming pools at very reasonable rates. Their looks are also quite similar to the traditional pools. There is a wide variety of pool designs offered by container modification companies. You can choose a design of your preference that matches the vibe of your home. Let us have a look at the various container pool designs.
1) In-ground Container Pool
In-ground shipping container pools are built quite in a similar manner as the traditional pools. The only difference being the use of a container in place of a cemented pool structure. The container is placed inside the pit after digging out an appropriate height of land. This forms a base for the pool. This in-ground pool built by Modpools is created similarly and offers all the modern facilities. It can be installed at your place in a day and will look as beautiful as a traditional pool.
2) Above-ground Container Pool
Above-ground container pools are the most common ones among the shipping container pool builders. Such pools are the easiest to create and can be installed in a few hours. They require much less effort in installation and there is no land digging involved. The design created by Hampton’s Garage can be built completely out of the site. It includes a space for storing all the pool equipment. You can choose between the two standard sizes of 20 feet and 40 feet. The company allows you to choose a color for your beautiful shipping container pool.
3) Partially In-ground Pool
This design by Boxx Pools is best suitable for uneven lands. Along with solving the problem of building a pool at difficult terrains, such designs have a unique personality. The amount of work involved in creating them lies somewhere in the middle of the in-ground and above-ground pools. The installation involves some land digging to fit the container pool inside the higher level of the land. If you have limited space but desire to have a pool, you can get it installed along the stairs. In the design shown, the pool exterior is done in a manner to give the effect of a traditional pool. You can, however, always choose your pool’s look to match the surroundings.
4) Container Pool with a Viewing Window
This container pool is elevated from the ground like an above-ground pool. This allows us to create a beautiful viewing window on the side of the pool. You can enjoy the outside view of your backyard from within this pool. Also, it acts as a safety feature to keep an eye on your children from outside when they enjoy swimming. The overall design of this shipping container pool adds to the beauty of your house with its unique charm.

5) Cantilevered Container Pool
This very design allows you to swim in the air, literally! The cantilevered pools are created by lifting the container pool to height while installing them. As seen in the picture here, they are joined to your house from one side. Additional support is provided from the ground with construction beams or similar strong support material. Depending on your requirement, these pools can be attached to your house either length-wise or breadth-wise. You can also build a small passage to connect your house with the pool to make it look more beautiful.
