    Sports Pool: depth in middle

    He said it would be a V but not an exact science and the deep would be for a few feet in the middle.

    Sports Pool: depth in middle

    Two kids 11 and 8. My husband is about 5’10”. I guess my reasoning for considering 5.5 would be for kids jumping when they become teenagers. But there’s no height in our family, just average height people. Lol

    Sports Pool: depth in middle

    We decided on the sports pool and trying to decide between 5 OR 5.5 in the middle. We are doing 3.5 on one side and 4 on the other. We'll have a hot tub in the middle that our kids can jump off (feet first, no diving of course). It will be a fairly wide pool but only 26' in length (which needs...

    Depth of deep end (sports vs deep end)

    I saw your comment about jumping/cannonballs. I kinda want to go 5.5’ in the middle of our sports pool for that reason but just don’t think I have the length at 26’ long. Is volleyball tough with the middle being 5.5?

    Sport type Pool or Traditional Deep End?????

    Mine will be 26’ in length (similar to yours) and we worry that it will be too steep going 3.5-5.5. Do you think it’s too steep? Do you play volleyball with the net in the middle? We have a raised hot tub in the middle that I know they’ll want to jump off. Lol

    Volleyball Pool?

    I care across this post and wanted to see how you are enjoying your sports pool since I’m considering one. Is 6 too deep in the middle? Is the slope too steep? Any advice is appreciated.

    Sport type Pool or Traditional Deep End?????

    My pool will be 26’ in length not including tannin ledges. Considering a sports pool at 3.5-5-4. Now that you’ve had your pool for years, how are you enjoying it? And how do you like the middle at 5.5 vs 5?

    Slope of sports pool

    Just came across your post and would love to hear how it all went and how you’re enjoying the pool. Pics? I’m considering a sports pool but can’t decide!

    Pool depth

    Mine will be 35’ wide but after you take away the ledges on each side, it’s 26’ of floor space to do the sports pool slope. So 13’ feet to go 1.5ft in slope on one side. Does that seem too steep?

    Pool depth

    Pool depth

    Funny you say that. We actually brought a tape measure into my dad’s pool and measured ourselves so we could see what 3.5, 4, and 5 felt like...LOL We have steps in our design so I’m starting at 3.5 but can tell him to slope it right away.

    Do you like having shallow to deep or do you think you’d like the sports pool with 2 shallow ends?

    Pool depth

    That's so good to hear that you can jump and cannonball in the 5 ft area b/c my kids will jump! Good Point PoolDV about the 6 ft. Do you think it's the same with 5.5' too? My other option is the sports pool at 3.5-5-4. But we are doing a grecian pool with tanning ledges on each end so the...

    Pool depth

    Anyone have a pool with a depth of 3.5 - 5.5? (or similar) Do you play volleyball and basketball like you would be able to in a sports pool? Do you like it? Would you do it again? Anything you don’t like? We’re just not sure about a sports pool, thinking the middle won’t get used much. (We...

    DEPTH: Sports pool OR Traditional Shallow 2 Deep?

    It seems the sports pool is more popular than the 3.5 to 5. But my husband is worried 26’ length is not enough for a sports pool. What’s the length of your pool?

    DEPTH: Sports pool OR Traditional Shallow 2 Deep?

    Although it would be nice to have a deep end, we want a pool that can be used more for sports and hanging out. So we won’t be doing a deep end. My dad has a diving board and a deep end that we can go use when we want to. We are just trying to figure out whether to do the sports pool or shallow...

    DEPTH: Sports pool OR Traditional Shallow 2 Deep?

    MK...it just seems like 5.5’ or 6’ won’t be used much b/c you can’t stand. Since we aren’t going with a diving depth...just not sure it makes sense to go deeper. I’m torn but my husband thinks 5’ is deep enough.

    DEPTH: Sports pool OR Traditional Shallow 2 Deep?

    Jim, I loooove hot tubs and can see myself in it a lot in the winter!!! Every time we go to the beach resort, I go in the hot tub...even in August. Why would I not like a gunite spa?

    DEPTH: Sports pool OR Traditional Shallow 2 Deep?

    My husband and I have decided to go 3.5' to 5' but still debating between sports pool or traditional shallow to deep end? The pool with be roman/grecian style with basically a rectangle swim box (basically 26' length x 17' width) with tanning ledges added to each end and then a hot tub centered...
