    Advice on pool plan

    I am building a small pool in a remote area - pool builder not great on design. I would like to know if you think I should keep all the seating as is on plan or will this make shallow end too small?

    Welcome to TFP!

    More than anything it depends how you imagine using the pool. That probably isn't the best setup for a dozen kids, but might be prefect for six adults who aren't feeling all that active.

    Thanks for the reply! I have 2 kids, My new idea is to make seating bench an L instead of a U, the view along the top where the spill-over edge is beautiful.

    If the view is beautiful, I would want seating in pool that faces the view. Is that what you mean, make part of the "L" face your view? Do you have a pic of your lot?

    Many of the best pool designers in the world have noted that steps and benches are used more than any other area of a pool.

    I think that is true - I often just sit on a step and kids of all ages love to play on the steps. having a bench or seating in the pool will be awesome I think!
