"Sand Pools" Are The Latest Backyard Trend

If you don’t live near the sea, or just can’t travel this summer because of COVID-19 restrictions, there’s another way to get your beach vacation on — bring it to your own backyard. Spanish company Piscinas de Arena NaturSand is offering “sand pools” — custom pools that are as close to real beaches as it gets. If you already have a pool, the company can simply convert it into something straight out of a Mediterranean paradise. The sand pools are made with a special concrete mix that’s covered with compacted sand. Not only does the surface of the pool never get hot, it’s anti-slip dry and wet. The entrance of the pool begins with level zero on a soft ramp, as if it were a real beach. That way, there’s no need for stairs or ladders. The pools come in a variety of shapes and forms and can have multiple levels of depth. In some cases, if the weather permits, the pools can be built in just 30 days. For those who are wondering about having cats, no problem — the pool is made of a special concrete that looks like sand, but isn’t. So, cats are not a problem……..as long as you’re okay with your cat peeing in the pool. As for the price, the company doesn’t post its prices — which tells you it’s not cheap. You can, however, fill out a form on their website and they will contact you with an estimate.
