Central Florida Pools: Deep or Shallow?

If you are embarking on the pool design process, you have likely spent lots of time thinking about the size and shape, landscaping features and fun additions you want. However, you may not have given as much thought to one key factor: the depth of the pool.

Knowing how deep (or shallow) to build your pool depends on your lifestyle, needs for the future and space constraints. In today’s blog, we will be looking at the benefits of each type of depth and answering questions that may help you decide what you want for your family’s pool.

 

A deeper pool is perfect for…

  • Those who think the pool is about swimming above everything else.
  • Families who like doing cannonballs and other jumps into the pool.
  • Hosting pool parties and enjoying games in the pool.

 

A shallower pool is perfect for…

 

  • Lounging in the pool with drinks.
  • Young swimmers who prefer wading or sitting in the water to swimming in the deep.
  • Relaxing after a long day without having to swim or tread water. This is why luxury hotels will often have shallow pools as an option for guests—everyone there just wants to relax!

Of course, we know that needs of you and your family can change over time. You may want a shallow pool now to foster wading for young kids, for example, but also want a pool that will still be enjoyable five years from now when everyone is a little older. Similarly, you may want a pool that’s versatile enough to be fun for adults and children alike.

Fortunately, this is why you can slope your pool’s depth! You can enjoy a shallow depth near the pool entry that’s perfect for lounging around or wading—while the other end can be deep enough for cannonballs and water tricks. You can even customize your pool to be shallow on two ends, and deep in the middle… it’s completely up to you, your interests and needs.

That is, of course, unless you desire a pool that has an even depth all around. Equal depth pools are often perfect for families with older kids, or those who like to participate in games like volleyball that require everyone to be on equal footing. An L-shaped is also perfect for this, since it allows the pool to be equal in depth on one “leg” of the L but not necessarily the other.

If you do decide, however, that you want a deep slope (that descends from a very shallow depth to a much deeper one), you may need more space for the slope to be gradual. Fortunately, the end result is a family swimming pool that everyone can enjoy!

 

Can we help you design the pool of your dreams?
