Tanning Shelf–A Place in the Sun!

from Pool FYI.com

By any other name, they are the same–tanning shelf, sun shelf, Baja ledge, doggie deck–a delightful, shallow area in your pool to relax and soak up the sun. Sun shelves are a ledge typically placed at the entrance of your pool and are around 5-8 inches deep.

Tanning shelves allow you to stay cool during really hot days by providing just enough water to still “lay out” without completely submerging yourself in the water. The size and the shape of your shelf can vary depending on the design and shape of your pool, and will add an instant “resort-like” feel to your backyard! Whether your looking to get a bronzy tan without frying in a deck chair, or you need a place to watch the little ones play in the shallow, a sun shelf is fun for the whole family. Even pets will love the shallow shelf because it involves no doggie-paddling!
