Swimming Pool Sunledge

Swimming Pool Sunledge

What’s a sunledge in a swimming pool? A sunledge, simply put, is an oversized first step into your swimming pool. It’s also frequently referred to as a tanning ledge or a wet deck area. A sunledge is usually about 6″ below the water and can vary greatly in size depending on its intended use(s). With a custom gunite pool you have the ability to create the sunledge in any shape you wish; round, square, and even freeform.

Although most commonly placed in the shallow end of the swimming pool, sunledges can be added to any location. Other popular positions are the center of the pool to create a gathering spot, or at the deep end if this works best for the overall design.

It’s also important to take into account the amount of sun it will get in the various locations you’re considering. The optional umbrella holder might be a good feature to include if it’s going to be in direct sunlight. This is also a great feature if you’re looking to add a little pizzazz!

Wherever you decide is the best placement for your pool, a sunledge will be an ideal place to relax or sit and watch while the kids are playing.

Want to take your sunledge to the next level? Here are a few popular ideas:

  • Water Bubbler
  • Deck Jets
  • Sand Chairs or Lounges
    • Size is definitely a consideration here. You’ll want to allow enough room for the type of seating you’re considering.
  • Mosaic Tiles
    • Create a more formal look with a mosaic medallion, or a more fun playful setting with a group of sea turtles.


Whatever your desired effect, work with an experienced pool design professional and clearly communicate your desires and expectations to ensure you’re getting a sunledge in your swimming pool that you and your family with enjoy for years to come.

As we are in the process of buying a new home, we visited the showroom of Pool Builders on Orange Drive. Their showroom is amazing as they have a complete and operational pool in the showroom. Even more incredible was the amount of time that their representative, John, spent explaining all of the different features and options. John was very knowledgeable on all aspects concerning an outside pool and willing to share his expertise. Thanks so much and great customer service!

Amazing help and a beautiful pool! My friend had two pools built over 20 years ago in both of their homes and the quality is outstanding! I wouldn't go with anyone else! Everyone I worked with was wonderful-especially John DelRe and Lori.They were always available - answering all my questions in a quick and professional manner. Everyone makes you feel like family! ♡♡♡

Excellent experience! Every step of the way was communicated clearly so we knew what to expect. From the showroom demo with John DelRe to dealing with the office itself and sub-contractors, this is a professional team! I would recommend this to friends and family...and will as soon as I can!

We are extremely happy with our pool from Pool Builders. Our sales person, Luis Motta, was fantastic and designed something we love. The whole process was smooth from start to finish and they kept us updated at every stage of the build. We recommend them to everyone we know looking to build a pool. A+ service and quality!
