Hi. I'm new here but we are just at the design phase of putting in a pool. So many questions! First, we live in NW Ohio and are worried that we are absolutely crazy for even considering a pool being that we will only be using 4 months out of the year. It's just something we've always wanted so we figure, why not. I should also note that we have two small boys, ages, 3 and 5 and we know they would just love it. I'm curious about what size of pool? We are looking at an L shaped thinking we could have a nice shallow side for volleyball, basketball, etc. and a deep end for diving games. I also wondering how deep? Lastly, what about the types of pools? What are the major differences (besides price) for a vinyl vs. Gunite? Thanks for your opinions.
