Recently I have been looking at a bunch of pools to get ideas of what I want, I have noticed a bunch do not have deep ends. They are not all Sport Pools, just shaped pools with no deep ends. The depths vary from 3-5 feet in most. I have noticed most people hang out in the shallow area and it does get crowded, especially in a smaller pool when I go to pool parties. Does anyone regret getting a Deep End?? I will not get a diving board or slide, but I do like to dive in pools when I go in, obviously with-out a deep end I could not do this safely. On the other hand I think about every time I or others dive in all they do is swim to the shallow end and hang out there. It would also be cool to play volleyball and basketball in a Sport Type pool, but I wonder if I would really do that much.
My kids are twin 7 year old boys and a 3 year old girl. Part of me thinks they would love the all shallow until they are 10 or so, then they would want a deep end, but I am not sure. I did a search and the thoughts are mixed for sure.
Any opinions would be appreciated.
