Just looking for advice, tips, etc. Considering conversion of 50x20 dive pool into lap pool by raising deep end. Worth the trouble?

Probably would refinish entire pool in process, but more curious on pros, cons, costs, etc.

Thanks,

Jeff

There have been a few construction threads of folks who have filled in the deep area of their pool. We will have to see if any of them are around right now.




What do you want your depth profile to become?

I'm thinking 5-6. I don't want it overly shallow. The other end is about 3-3.5 ft. Seems raising drains and filling in, but maybe there's more to it.
