My PB is insisting that we can only keep 3 steps (1 of them as an oversized baja step) if we keep 3'6" as our shallow end. Supposedly, anything deeper than 3'6" would throw off the rise of the steps and force a 4th step. 3'6" is a bit too shallow for my family (we're all very tall), so we would prefer at minimum a 3'8" shallow but we definitely do not want to add an extra 4th step intruding into the pool.
Is it really not feasible to keep 3 steps in a 3'8" of water?
I'm at a bit of an impasse here with the PB, because I think it can be done, just add tiny bit more rise to a few steps, but I'm not sure if that would go against code and he seems very firm about it.
