I have my quotes in and have decided on a builder and am about to pull the trigger but am having a last minute panic about depth.
Below is the layout of the pool, deep end is on the left. Pool is approx. 38'x24' freeform and approx. 25,000 gallons (probably just under). Depth is 3.5' to 7' at present.
There will not be a diving board but do have a waterfall with a slide and want the ability to dive in from the deck. I'm fine diving into 7' of water but I'm having a bit of panic about other people especially since I guarantee people will jump off the waterfall.
Any thoughts on increasing the depth? Should I go an extra foot and make it 8'? I don't want to go crazy with it and have a real steep slope but do want to make sure it's safe.
How deep have any of you gone for diving without a board?
