My family is finally going to commit to building a pool, but I'm having problems deciding on the depth, specifically what depth for a diving pool or to just go the play pool route.
I would love to have a diving pool similar to the one I had as a kid, but our backyard can only accommodate at most a 36' length pool reasonably, which limits the depth to about 8'6 - 9' deep and a small shallow end. This falls in line with the minimum diving depth regulations, but I'm worried because my husband is very tall at 6'6.
Would his tall height be problematic for the diving depth, making it unsafe? Is height even a concern with regards to diving??
If it is problematic, I will just go for a play pool instead.
Thanks for any help!
