Deciding the water depth of the pool is one of the hardest decisions for a potential buyer.

Many consumers often have the mindset that they want an 8ft deep pool. For some consumers this is the best option but for most it is not. With an 8ft deep pool you lose over half of the usefulness of the pool because you are treading water in over half the pool rather than being able to touch the bottom.

The swimming pool industry has changed over the past 15 years. 15 years ago 70% of the pools we built were diving pools. Now only 20% are diving pools. The majority of the pools we build now have depth ranging from 5-6 feet deep. This allows the customer to utilize the pool to its full potential, for gaming such as basketball and volleyball.
