Hey everyone, I'm a newb here......we're in the process of deciding on the type of pool we want, and the biggest issue for me is deciding on the pool depth on the shallow and deep end.
We decided on fiberglass, and the builder we're going with has several nice Leisure Pools models that we like. The one that we like the most is the Allure, which is 16x40, with a built in spa and tanning ledge. My biggest issue with it is that the shallow end begins at 4'9" and the deep end is 6'8". We have 2 kids (6 and 9 (another on the way this coming Fall), and our 6 yr old wouldn't be able to just splash around in the shallow end because it's too deep. They both know how to swim, and I understand that he'll eventually be taller than the deep end, but my concern is him being able to enjoy it now, as well as the coming newborn. And on the deep end, I wasn't sure if it made sense to have a deep end that I couldn't just walk around in (sport pool). Our kids are great swimmers and love to jump in, so I'm not sure if having a deep end closer to 6' would be more practical for our needs. Is a deep end of 6' OK for cannonballing and jumping in? This would be the first pool we've ever had, so we're kind of new to the whole process, thank you!
