The transition from 3'-6" to 8' deep is going to be VERY steep since it is in such a short run (<20'). There will be little area in the pool that won't require treading water.
Hi, I sent you a p.m.
didnt get it.

ok, updated the first post pool plan.
I re-sent it
Assuming you will be at 8' deep where the drains are located, then your slope will be 4.5' in 20', and that's if the transition begins at the bottom of the steps. If you have a flat section in the shallow area, the slope will be even steeper.
so do you recommend 3'6" to 7' instead?
My last pool had a very steep to deep end...loved it....maybe not so good for children though.

I couldn't help but notice you are doing a O/B project here in LV. I as well am in the process and am looking for contractors to work with. Have you started the bidding process as of yet? If you have any contractor information you'd be willing to share I would not complain and I can certainly return the favor of some of the contractors I am getting bids from. Find a plumber seems to be the difficult one.
Your Project looks amazing. Which I had the yard space for such a entertainment friendly layout!
One way or another, kids and pools always seem to get together. When they do, steep transitions are pretty darn dangerous.My last pool had a very steep to deep end...loved it....maybe not so good for children though.
I never regretted our reasonably shallow pool that had almost 300 sq ft of flat 38" deep water and then a very gentle slope down to only 6' deep.
Ahh you're right.
We're actually thinking of going maybe 5-5.5 now to get more standing area.
Can you go 4' shallow?

Both look much better. I don't want to talk you out of a deep pool, but you are somewhat limited on space for the depth you were trying to achieve.
yeah, the most important part of this project to us is having the reef steps. But we also want to not hit our heads if we jump in the pool.
I hear you...I have a very large reef step and have no regrets, its the most used area of our pool.
