I will measure it today. But I'm pretty sure we are close to the minimum depth required. My pool only goes to 6 feet. And I am able to walk more than halfway down the pool and it only reaches my neck (I'm 5.5 feet). I wanted to be able to easily reach smaller kids after going down slide and i wanted to be able to use the whole pool all the time. My husband is 6 ft and my boys will likely be as tall if not taller. They all go down the slide just fine.KaiBee... I love your set up! How many feet of water is under your slide? Would I be able to put a slide over 4'11" of water?
I am quoting this to share a "swimming for exercise" idea. A tether! Here one I grabbedswim jets to be able to get more exercise type swimming, but they are really expensive for something I am not sure how much I would use them.
