Dual usage Pool / Pool Depths
Hi, I am currently in the process of designing our pool in the UK. I have two children under 7, and want to make sure that they can use the pool now and also not outgrow the pool when they are teenagers.
They love using a diving board, so I would like to have a diving area as well as a large flat area that could be used for volleyball and games.
Its an indoor pool, and not built yet, so I have abit of flexibility with length but shape should be rectangular. The proposed size is approx 50ft x 20ft.
I was thinking of the following:
Diving board overlaps pool 3ft.
Depth of pool, drops down to 8ft, until 12ft from wall
Slope then raises to 3ft 6. Slope is 10ft long
This then leaves a 28ftx20ft flat bottom at depth 3ft6
Do you think this would work? Is the shallow area large enough for games, and the diving area safe enough?
