    Token, I've never seen an L-shaped pool configured the way you have it, granted I haven't been around the pool game all that long, about 3 years. What made you set it up the way you have it, because your deep end really messes up the shallow end. Lap swimming perhaps? I see safety issues with the way it's currently configured because there's no easy way to define or cordon off the deep end break. Interesting.

    Hello Fins,

    My goal for the layout is to have a 30'X20' (right side of diagram) area of 3'6" for volleyball or other activities and the other 34' X 20' area for for the diving board . The PB diagram shows rope in the diagram running horizontally but I wasn't planning on having a rope. Are safety ropes required for a deep end?
    If so, I would run it vertically across the L and not horizontally.

    Hopefully this makes sense

    Thanks again for the feedback.

    I think it looks nice. The community pool we went to when I was a kid had a very similar layout, and it didn't cause any problems.

    Token, I see where you're going, although it's still a little strange to me since we have a traditional L-shape set-up. The most logical way to run the safety rope would be from the inside corner of the L straight South, which I think is also what you were saying. I'm really surprised that the PB showed the rope the way he did in the first place. Very odd and makes me wonder about him a little bit to be honest. If you ultimately go with him I would make sure that he sets the rope anchors in the coping as we discussed. You may ultimately never use your rope (the only time we used ours was the day the building inspector came for the final inspection) but you want them in the right place nevertheless in case you ever sell your home and the new buyers want a safety rope. Is is safe to assume that your home sits to the "South" of the pool along the long shallow edge? I'm guessing yes, and that's the reason for the 2 points of entry in what will be a massive shallow end.

    Thanks for the heads up on the safety rope.
    The plan is to run it from the inside corner to the intersect the L.
    I know the PB was having issues getting the drawing done properly since the regular engineer was on vacation. I will definitely follow up with him to get it corrected.

    Thanks,
    Token
