Preferred locations for swimming pool
Swimming pool involves the water element and as per vastu shastra concepts, the ideal location for having a pool in the house is towards the Ishan corner (Northeast). First preference must be given to the north east area and if there is no open space then only should the swimming pool be constructed in the East or North area.
Having a swimming pool in either Northeast to East side and Northeast to North side, allows for a fortunate location for the pool brining luck and fortune to the residents of the house.
As per Vastu, Swimming pool should not have any connect with the south or western directions even if it involves the eastern or Ishan centers. For example having a swimming pool in the South East corner of the house is a bad position and must be avoided at all costs.
Swimming Pool on Upper Floors
Many modern day houses built these days have a swimming pool built at the upper floors or a terrace. While having a terrace swimming pool may look attractive and an ideal location, it is not such a good placement keeping in mind both the engineering design as well as vastu concepts.
All vastu concepts for swimming pool and other water related elements like water storage tanks bore wells and other underground water tanks have a direct connection with the ground element. Hence, if you are looking for a place with a swimming pool which has vastu balanced energy, always opt for one which has a swimming pool at the ground floor in the preferred corner of the house as discussed above. If your home or property already has a swimming pool on a terrace or balcony, do vastu corrections by consulting a vastu expert.
Swimming pool in a corner of the house
Vastu shastra gives a strong emphasis on having a swimming pool in a corner of the house rather than having one at the center. Even when built in the right directions, a house having a corner placed swimming pool has a better energy balance. Corner located swimming pools also offer an added privacy assurance compared to swimming pools located in the middle of center of the property. Having a swimming pool in the north eastern corner of the house therefore is the best placement as per vastu shastra concepts for a home swimming pool.
