I know much has been written on this topic by doing some TF searches. That said, we're still on the fence and need some advice. We are planning a 16x33 kidney pool. (We cannot go wider or longer due to some restrictions).
If it were you, would you go with a 7 or 8 foot depth? If we go with an 8 foot depth, it really only gives us a 8ft radius in the shallow end and we're concerned about that.
- We're not a "diving" family. There will be no diving board.
- We do have a 10 yr. old. There will be kids over.
- When we stay at hotels with pools, we all tend to hang out in the shallow end.
We don't really play sports in the pool but might consider a basketball hoop - as we loved that at a resort we visited. Some people say - you need a deep end. Others say you don't. We have no idea.
