We are getting very serious about signing a contract for a new inground pool (so no definite information for a signature just yet), but I wanted to get opinions on some of the specs we’re currently considering: 10’ x 15’ rectangle, 4’ at shallow end and 5.5’ at deep end, 120K BTU heat pump, salt chlorine generator.
There are several reasons we (just husband and me) need to keep it small, some of which we can’t control and some we can. Our backyard is small, the sunniest spot is smaller, a slope is a factor, and city ordinances on distances from walls and fences is restrictive. But we do want a pretty small pool anyway, because we want ongoing costs and maintenance work to be on the lower side.
I do wonder, though, if we should try to squeeze in another foot or two on the length, and if that would actually make any real difference.
Does anyone have an inground pool close to this size? How do you like it?
Thanks in advance for any opinions.
