    Las Vegas O/B New Pool

    Just getting our design finalized. What do you guys think? Wife thinks the swimmable pool area of 22x15 is too small but we really want a huge wet deck. Qinguy feel free to chime in!

    *edit* bigger area and hot tub moved

    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.

    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.

    Greetings Wasteland-
    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.

    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.

    That would be your preference. Some building departments have very strict requirements on transitional slopes in pools due to slip hazards (especially with small children). I'm not certain about Vegas though. It would be in your benefit to make the deep end further to the left side of the pool so you have a longer run to get to the depth you desire.


    You can see that moving the deep area to the left gives a lot more room. The second one eliminates the two shallow areas (same square footage though) and adds more room to the pool

    Ahh you're right.

    We're actually thinking of going maybe 5-5.5 now to get more standing area.

    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.
