Generally, lap pools are long and narrow, allowing people to swim back and forth for as many laps of exercise as they desire. Sometimes, a pool will have a slightly unusual shape, but the classic and basic design is a simple rectangle. The water is usually of a uniform depth as well, which can make them dangerous for children and pets, who might have difficulty getting out if they fall in. Lap pools may be heated or unheated, depending on the region, and they are usually very easy to maintain.

One of the more interesting varieties of lap pools is the collapsible ones that can be set up in any yard or any small space. A pool like this is designed to allow you to do laps back and forth to get the exercise that you would normally get from swimming laps. However, the pool is designed in such a way that it is only wide enough to allow lap swimming.

The portable version is sometimes referred to as a half lap, which means that it is the proper width for doing laps but it is half the length. It can still be a valuable exercise tool for people who have small yards but want to enjoy the benefits of a vigorous swim.
