    What is the name of the shape of my pool? Want to fill out my sig correctly

    I have never seen another pool shaped like mine, and I found a picture of it....Is there a common name for a pool with this shape????

    It is the one named 'Muskoka' in the picture....its essential oval at one end and square at the other end...

    We really do not care what you call it. We just want to know the surface type and volume

    I would still love to know what to call it...People ask me what shape the pool is (pool stores, etc etc) and I say 'uhhh, its like oval on one side and square on the other, kinda?'

    There are only about a handful of those pools where if you gave me the name I would know the shape.

    I've heard of the Capri shaped pool which I thought was like that....and I've also heard of the Patrician which is like a roman on one end and squared on the other....Maybe one of those?

    But then again capri could also be like a mountain pond too..I agree w/ Geebot...I think it's most like a keyhole.

    keyhole is probably as close as I am going to get to describing the basic shape...although the images of the keyhole pools seem to show the circular part much larger....uhh, like a keyhole lol....but at least the basic principle gets conveyed....

    it's closer to a keyhole then the other two....but I must say, I really like the way the patrician style looks...

    I couldn't have a pool with the shape of that picture.
    For your pool I'd say ovaltangular.

    No, it's Ovaltine

    but seriously, someone else on this forum is rehabing a pool in the same shape and he called it a keyhole.
