I've been lurking for YEARS and finally getting to build my dream pool! I am SO excited - signed our contract today!
The depth of the pool is something we can change up to the point of dig- but we are really struggling with what we should do. We originally wanted 3 1/2 - 7 honestly, because that is what all the pools we have been in were. When the different builders started asking us about the intended "use" for the pool was and why we want so much of the pool where people can't touch - it made perfect sense to go much shallower.
We do not have kids - we are not divers and will have no slide. We DO want to be able to jump in - like cannonball. Probably not us - but I can imagine parties . . . This will be a social pool for us - a place to relax, drink, and listen to the waterfalls. So, here is what we are considering:
- Sports Pool 3 1/2 - 5 1/2 - 4 1/2
- Traditional 3 1/2 - 5 1/2
- Traditional 3 1/2 - 6
I can't really think of any reason to be deeper than 6.
Our pool is going to be freeform - 33' X 17 (spa, waterfall, weeping wall and tanning ledge)
What do you have? Do you love it? Would you make changes to the depth if you could do it again?
Thank you for your help!
