Swim­ming Pool Feng Shui Tips:
How to make your out­door pool envi­ron­ment auspicious.

What did you thing when you read this head­line? Too woo-woo for you? Well, undoubt­edly you’ve heard about feng shui—Coca-Cola, Sony, and Don­ald Trump all swear by this ancient art/science for cre­at­ing an ener­getic flow in envi­ron­ments that sup­pos­edly brings good luck (or in these exam­ples, more profit).

The two Chi­nese words actu­ally mean “wind-water”—so what bet­ter place to look at these prin­ci­ples that your own swim­ming pool? Here are five tips from feng shui con­sul­tant Kathryn Weber for how to cre­ate good luck with your pool.

1. Select a shape that is aus­pi­cious.
The best shapes for pools are round, oval, kid­ney, or curv­ing. This is because none of these shapes have any hard edges or points, a no-no in feng shui.

2. Keep your pool size pro­por­tional to the size of your home.
Pools are bet­ter if they are not overly large. If they are too large for the home, they can “over­whelm” it, impart­ing much neg­a­tive energy.

3. Place pools at the sides of the yard.
If pos­si­ble, it is bet­ter to posi­tion swim­ming pools at the side of a yard rather than directly in the rear. Pools in that posi­tion can become men­ac­ing, as water behind you is con­sid­ered bad feng shui. (If your pool is already there, don’t worry. There are “fixes” you can make with plants to com­pen­sate for this position.)

4. Locate pools in a favor­able sec­tor.
Until the year 2043, pools should ide­ally be located in the North, South­west, East, or South­east sectors.

6. Incor­po­rate the five ele­ments around your pool.
Pools should be mixed with the other ele­ments, such as metal (handrail­ings, pumps, elec­tri­cal equip­ment), wood (plants, arbors, gaze­bos), earth (rock, cement sur­round­ings or deck­ing), and fire (light­ing). The pool should be har­mo­niously incor­po­rated into the landscape.

And the other way to make sure you have good luck is to work with Pacific North­west Pools. We’ve brought good luck to Ore­gon and Wash­ing­ton pool own­ers for more than four decades.
