Water Depth of Tanning Ledge / Baja Shelf in a Vinyl Liner Pool?
Our pool in going to be "L" Shaped with the side part being a tanning ledge 8 x 14 (includes the steps and ledge) I would like for the ledge to be between 6 inches deep, and no more than 12 inches but our PB is worried about the liner lifting up or getting wrinkles and wants to do it at 20 inches (16 inches when pool is full of water) he says we need that much water on it to keep from having problems. We live in Syracuse, NY and ledges are not that popular here in fact when I talked to PB's 4 years ago no one knew what I was talking about, since then the company I am going with did their first one last summer. I want to know if this is a legitimate concern or if they are being conservative due to lack of experience with tanning ledges. The PB we have chosen has a great reputation for both the build and customer service. I am in need of recommendations of how shallow an in-ground liner pool tanning ledge can be. Thanks in advance for your help!
