So I've learned a lot today about diving board placement over the water. After reading the standards for inground pools, and talking to both the diving board manufacturer and pool manufacturer, I'm learning that I need have the edge of my board out 33" from the pool wall, to have the required 6' of water directly under the board. No big deal, except that I bought a 6' diving board with the pool. The thinking was 2' over the water, and 4' on the patio. 33/66%.
But if I need 33" over the water, that's only 39" on the patio, almost 50/50. That might look odd, and also it pushes the mounting jig closer to the pool edge vs more centered in the 4x8' pad that is being poured. So my question is if I should lean towards an 8' board? I'm sure I could get the poil builder to swap it out, as the 6 was his recommendation.
It's difficult to find anything online that provides any rule of thumb for board length.
