Longer or wider?
We are getting very close to ground breaking... and I am looking forward to starting a "Pool build" thread with pictures on here...
Painted the pool out today in the yard... my first impression was that it should be a little shorter and a little wider... I know it is a very subjective question... but those of you who guessed at what size was right for you, did you guess right? Would you go wider? Longer? Shorter?
My layout is free-form... center line length 47'. Width at center narrow section, 16'. Width at deep end: 19'. Shallow end has a bumped out baha shelf that makes the overall width about 29'.
My first impression in looking at it painted on the ground is to reduce overall length by 2 feet to 45', and increase width at center and deep end by 2 feet.
We do not swim laps... will mainly be used by family, kids, volleyball, etc. I would love to hear opinions on how the size you picked looked and worked out for you once built... and if you would do it differently now?
