Planning on signing a contract on a new pool in the next day or so and we are struggling to decide what we want. One of the PBs put together a nice layout that we really liked. I have attached a picture of the pool below. I don't know the actual dimensions, it is a 300 sqft pool, but it should be somewhere around 14x28 overall.
She extended the first step to allow for a tanning ledge and also included a seating spot in the deep end. The pool is 3' in the shallow end and we were thinking 6' in the deep end. Their standard is 5' and they charge extra for additional depth. I am 6'6 and just don't want to feel like I can't get under water anywhere in the pool. Although, I am starting to worry that 6' might be a problem for others b/c it is not really deep enough to be a true deep end, but too deep for most normal size folks.
I am starting to lean towards the idea of doing it as either a:
3' to 5' gradual slope
3'-5'-3' sport pool
3.5'-5'-3.5' sport pool
Can I get some of your opinions on this?
Also....wanted to get your thoughts on the features (sun ledge, seat) to see if you would recommend changing them or swapping them out for something else. I like the idea of the tanning ledge for toddlers to play in....but it looks like it takes up most of the shallow end.
