Shallow water tanning ledges are hugely popular in the current trend of pool construction. It is rare that a new pool is built without this great feature. A tanning ledge is typically 12" deep and usually is around 50 square foot of space in a pool (around 10' x 5'). It is a very usable area for little kids splashing and playing or for adults to sit a relax. Commonly, an umbrella sleeve is added in to allow for a nice canopy retreat from the mid-day sun. Tanning Ledge Lounge Chairs are an awesome way to compliment this functional pool space.
