    Pool dimensions (sizes, depths, steps)

    We are building a pool this summer, would appreciate any feedback on sizes:

    Rectangle pool size 18x36 (this is set, can potentially change to 18x38)
    Depth 3.5' to 8'
    Steps (vinyl over steel): 12" risers, 18' width (across entire side), not sure on length

    Questions and opinions:
    What is the typical pool step length (ie how much of the 36' pool length will 3 steps take?) what do you recommend?

    We're pretty set on 3.5' on shallow end but deep end (and where to best start the transition) is giving us a hard time (want to leave as much shallow end as possible). Thoughts on whats a good slope and where to start the transition? Is it better to have a gradual slope all the way?

    This wont be a diving pool so can potentially go shallower on deep end to have more functional space, thoughts?

    Since it's not a diving pool, you could certainly go out more with your break point. Is this a DIY project?
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
