@ajw22 I marked up another document! The diagram they sent the sun shelf was on the wrong side so I colored that in and drew it on the correct side. You will step into the pool from the sunshelf and then step down into the shallow end from there.
Suggest shallow end 4' water depth rather than 3'6". Also make sure they give you a depth profile design so you know exactly where the slope down to the deep end will start and finish and how much full 8' deep end space you will have (more is better with a diving board). Getting on the same page with the builder on this and making sure they stick to it can save alot of heartache down the road.
@ajw22@PCR My builder sent me the attached tonight. We were going with the new microbrite lights which would require us to install more or do you think we should go with the larger ones, and use 3? As for depth, I think I am going to change the shallow end to 4' water depth. Everyone is tall in my family.
Regarding ladder in deep end mentioned in your first post - these aren't quite as common as they used to be. People tend to do swimouts or benches or sometimes a "safety ledge" to get out in the deep end. Do a search on here for swimout vs ladder or similar. Here is one thread
Hello everyone! I'm new to the forum and hoping for your help. We are in final stages of selecting pool size/shape/accessories. We are likely going with Lagoon style from Latham Pool Products, 20x40 size which is quite large, 8' in deep end. We have a lot of parties and have kids ages 5 & 7. We...
I think ladders are a little harder to use, and the swimouts give an extra place to sit and hang out in the deep end. Ladders also can hide algae and need to be removed to cover the pool for the winter. Swimouts can be within the outline of the pool or bump outside of it. Here are a few random images from a google search of swimout. I have two of the the double height benches like in the middle picture, and it works fine. The third pic is a vinyl liner pool. Just something to think about - nothing at all wrong with a ladder if that is what you want of course!
