Pool depth opinions
Hi everyone, I've been lurking for a few weeks now and need to speak up!
My husband and I are considering putting in an inground pool sometime either next winter or spring. Of course we've already started doing research/planning and the only point of contention we've come across is opinions on pool depth.
I am 5'5" and he is 5'10". I prefer not to have to stand on my tip toes or dog paddle across deep pools because its just way too much work with a drink in my hand. :) HE however wants to be able to dive or jump in (he knows you can't dive head first unless really deep), and he likes the feeling of being completely submersed in water. My argument is that we'll be using our pool more for entertaining and water sports (volleyball, basketball) rather than actual swimming to and fro.
Can you please let me know your pool depths? Would you go deeper? Shallower? Any opinions or recommendations either for his argument or mine are appreciated!
