What is raised bond beam (RBB)?

A raised bond beam, or RBB, is a wall on your pool that extends above the surface of the water. It usually ranges from 6 inches to 3 feet in height. Not only does it add depth and dimension to your pool and yard, but it also supports the pools integrity with reinforced rebar. Read on to learn more about the benefits of RBB.

Yard Surfaces

While a RBB can be built on level land, one of the great benefits of RBB is that it allows pools to be built in areas of a property that would otherwise be unworkable, such as on a slope. The RBB serves as a kind of retaining wall to keep back the soil. This allows the pool to be built into a slope that results in one part of the deck being a different height than other areas which separates the pool itself into two or more levels.


The RBB raised wall can be covered with stone or quartz or tiles that really will give your yard beauty and depth. It can also accommodate a waterfall or light fixtures and can even allow your spa to be elevated so that the warm water flows down to your pool. The options of incorporating an RBB are only limited by the imagination of the owner and the pool designer.
