When you are getting ready to design or build the swimming pool of your dreams, there is a lot of questions you will need to ask yourself. What pool features are you considering? How much maintenance work are you willing to do? Are you planning to use your swimming pool for exercise, fun, or both? What kind of safety features are out on the market?
However, one of the most important questions you will need to ask yourself is ‘what is the right depth for my pool needs?’.
While it may seem like a strange question, finding the right depth for your pool is key to ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for all of your guests. However, to find out how much depth you are going to need for your in ground swimming pool, you are going to need to ask yourself two very important questions first.
Who Is Going To Use The Pool?
The first question you need to answer is ‘who’ will be enjoying the pool on a regular basis. Do you have young children or frequently visiting nephews and nieces? Will anyone with mobility issues be enjoying regular dips in the pool? If those using your pool will be quite young or pool in health, you will want to make sure there is a ‘shallow’ end in your pool that guests can easily get in and out of despite their limited physical ability.
Why Are You Building Your Pool?
Homeowners have pools build for various different reasons. While one person just wants a great party pool for a large group of friends, someone else may be investing in a swimming pool for athletic reasons instead. Knowing the ‘why’ of your pool will allow you to know just how deep it needs to be or if you will require a variety of depths within the pool area. For example, if you are planning to install a diving board, you will need to make sure that area of the pool will be deep enough to provide safe diving for you and your guests.
