We are considering buying a rectangular Ultra Frame pool. I think we'd be interested in the 12' x 24' size. I keep trying to think of ways to make a shallow end for my youngsters since they won't enjoy the pool as much if they can't touch. Ideally, I'd like to have half the pool about 36-42" deep give or take a few inches, and the other end totally full. Is there any way this could be possible? I thought about building a platform under the pool that fit under the liner with the buttress still level on the ground, but I think it would mess up the way the frame works. Any suggestions? I'm also concerned about safety. I don't want anything in the pool that they could get stuck in, around, under, etc.
There's always the possibility of not filling to total capacity until they are older, however I've noticed a lot of posts about the walls bowing until the pool is full. Would 42" be full enough to avoid the bowed look? Thoughts anyone?
