This was our ultimate design. For the most part it came out exactly as expected except for the area between the pool wall/wet deck and descending ramp - that ended up really steep. Its hard to tell from the picture but its like a 4ft drop over a 3ft run (the ramp in the plan came out to about 3ft wide) - starts off at a nearly 90 degree angle at the area closest to the wall opposite the descending ramp - not the slope like you see in the design. The pool was two days from completion and so everything is gunnite, tile, and decking, just no plaster. My wife is blind and suffers from balance issues and thinks this would be too much of a drop off if she were to loose her balance. We asked for an inspection and the county inspector said everything looks good but we are still concerned.
Is there anything we can put there that might make it less of a drop or keep someone from sliding down?
