Thread: Diving Board Question

    Diving Board Question

    We are in the process of having the pool deck and patio torn out and replaced, including reinstalling the diving board. The pool is quite old, almost 30 years old, the cement, and possibly the diving board are at least 20 years old, if not original. While cleaning the board we noticed quite a few cracks in the board, and given its age, have decided it should be replaced. It is an 8' board, says Aquaboard on the underside, and Aquaslide 'n' dive on the rear edge. The stand looks to be in good shape, no noticeable damage or cracking. Is it possible to find just the board and reuse the base, or should it all be replaced?

    Re: Diving Board Question

    Since it's a safety issue, I think that you would probably be better off replacing the stand as well. You should also make sure that the diving board meets all building codes, including having adequate pool dimensions.

    Note: Just because a pool has a diving board and might have met code previously, does not mean that it would meet current codes for safety.
