On this page I will try to show you the importance of a South Facing Pool area!
(All of the pictures in each row were taken within 5 minutes of each other.  It is important to look at
the area close to the house as that is usually the only place you can position the pool furniture)

South Facing East Facing West Facing North Facing
The pictures in the row below were taken at 10:00am in the morning.

Notice the sunshine
 everywhere and
the intensity of the shadows!

The Sun rises in the East so an
Western exposure has nice
morning sun.

At 10:00am the sun is just starting to hit the edge of the pool deck.

Very little sunshine at all.  Even
 on a one story home.  It is
 worse on a two story home.

The pictures in the row below were taken at 1:00pm in the afternoon.

Notice the sunshine
 everywhere and
the intensity of the shadows!

As the sun tracks to the West you
can see how you lose sunshine
on the pool deck near the house.

The West facing home has nice sun
 on the pool in the afternoon.
Once again, very little sunshine at
all on the North facing pool.

The pictures in the row below were taken at 5:00pm in the afternoon.

The sun is getting very low
 in the sky but you can still
see shadows.
In complete shadow - no sun in
the late afternoon.
Still have sunlight hitting the pool
deck.
I  took a picture of the wrong house but
 as you can see, still no sun.
Summary
Ideal pool location.  You have
Sunlight on entire pool
deck all day!
You have sun in the morning
 and your pool chairs will be in
 sunlight until around Noon.
You start to get useable sun
around Noon and it stays for the
 remainder of the day.
Unfortunately these North facing
pools never get useable sun in the winter months.
