How many swimming pools are 18 to 20 feet deep at the deep end?
“At a minimum, a pool with a one-meter springboard must be 11.5 feet deep at a point directly underneath the tip of the diving board. For a three-meter springboard or five-meter platform, the water depth must be 12.5 feet (4 meters) deep, and 16 feet (5 meters) deep for a 10-meter platform.”
So a six meter deep pool would be pretty rare. You’d never find a Public pool that deep since 5m is the deepest needed for an olympic depth diving well.
I learned SCUBA in a 5m deep olympic sized pool. It felt REALLY deep sitting on the bottom of the diving well.
Why is there a deep end in swimming pools?
To give everyone—particularly your little ones—more space to play in the pool and engage in water games, you need an area that's less than 4 or 5 feet deep. The best pools to play in have plenty of space where swimmers can comfortably touch the bottom while keeping their heads above water.
Swimming pools are some of the major investments done by property owners. Pools are made of different surfaces and shapes, but there’s the most crucial factor – depth. It takes various factors to set water depths in domestic pools.
Diving in shallow waters can cause injuries while in deep waters, it can lead to drowning for poor swimmers and kids. After deciding on the pool depth, think about the pool shape. Your swimming pool will serve you even in the future.
The depth of the pool is a personal choice. Are you planning for the depth of your new pool? Here are swimming pool depth recommendations.
Water Depth: Water depth might be the biggest factor in making a pool fast. There are two critical considerations when managing water depth of a pool: scientifically producing a fast pool, and psychologically producing a fast pool.
Scientifically speaking, the deeper the water depth, the faster the pool. In a shallow pool, waves will “bounce” or reflect off the bottom of the pool, which causes the entire pool to become more turbulent or “wavy”. Waves do not make for a fast pool, calm water does. The additional water in a deeper pool acts a quelling force to lessen the impact of the wave (or makes it smaller).
Purpose of the Pool
Why do you need a pool in your property? Is it for playing beach games or swimming laps? Fun pools that accommodate kids and adults should have a minimum depth of 3 feet and 4 – 5 feet maximum. The length and depth of the pool should be 25 feet and 5 feet, respectively. That’s if seeking to have swim laps.
For a swimming pool, the water should be sufficiently deep to allow free movement. You must not scrap your knuckles on the underneath. If swimming is your passion, consider a swim spa or a lap pool.
Think about every person who will be utilizing the pool. For advanced swimmers, the length of their pool ought to be larger than its depth. If swimming is your passion, you need a swim spa with a depth of 3.5.
Ideal Height for Adults:
The majority of people are contented with a standard depth of 3 to 5 feet in a multiple depth pool. In some cases, couples have varying heights. For that matter, the height of the shorter member becomes the determining element.
Keep Children Safe
There are no safest and best heights for children as kids grow faster than adults. But for young toddlers, a 2-feet deep pool offers the best choice. A depth of 3 feet or more comes in handy after a few years. For children, the area to walk or wade through the water shouldn’t be too large. In some cases, there’re separate pools for kids. But for children who are serious about swimming, you can design an L-shape pool.You can as well integrate the wading pool with the standard one. An ideal kiddie pool permits kids to practice swimming skills and play, while they can touch bottom and stand comfortably.
The purpose of your pool is the most significant determining factor. But when it comes to swimming pool depth recommendations, your pool’s safety is a priority. Are you ready to decide your pool’s depth?
We believe the guidelines mentioned above will help you meet the needs of all the family members.

Mulitiple depth swimming pools:
Mulitple depth swimming pools are by far the most popular layout we see. This typically consists of a shallow end and a deep end of a swimming pool. This allows the swimmers to utilize the swimming pool in many different ways. A traditional pool has a shallow end on one side, about 3.5′ deep and eventually drops to 5' or deeper.

As the temperatures get warmer, area residents may be thinking of opening their swimming pools or installing a new one. But according to Mark Sweeney of Heath and Pool Services, they should’ve begun planning months ago.
Sweeney said many people stayed home this past year because of the pandemic, and pool sales were phenomenal. Now, parts and pools themselves may be hard to find.
“We sold out of pools. Above-ground pool liners will be hard to get, if you can get them,” he said. “We have some stock because I ordered way early.”
Those looking to install an above-ground pool may have to wait until May or June, or even later, due to the industry’s lack of inventory.
People with pools should start taking stock of what accessories, parts and chemicals they have on hand and order things they may need early. Repairs to look for include broken tiles, plaster, pipes or equipment.
“Hopefully pools were covered. They need to get their pool water in balance,” said Sweeney.
Professionals can pull covers off and clean them, and vacuum out the pool, but these processes can be done by most homeowners. Those who have covered their pools can clean it, get the pump running, and the water treated, and it can be ready to enjoy in a couple of days, according to Sweeney.
“If they haven’t covered the pool over the winter, it could take longer and will cost more because the cleaning is so much harder,” he said.
Some people may turn off their water features in the fall, but keep the pool running all year round.
“The opening for those will be fairly simple,” said Sweeney.
Those looking to maintain their pools themselves can get the water tested for free at Hearth and Pool. Owners can also find supplies such as valves, filters, pumps, hoses, and clamps. Water treatment supplies are also available.
Owners who maintain their pools themselves may see higher costs this season. One item that has had a huge increase in price this year is chlorine tablets, but it’s not due to the pandemic.
“Only two plants make them, and one of them was taken out by a hurricane,” said Sweeney.
Alternatives to chlorine include salt and products such as Pristine Blue. Sweeney said owners can switch fairly easily from chlorine treatments to other types.
Sweeney said Hearth and Pool Services does more commercial work, and a sister company, AquaTekk, handles a lot of the residential services.
The Hearth and Pool team was working on an old in-ground pool at the Town Branch Ranch Thursday. While they could remove old pumps and cracked tiles and acid-washed the surface, they will contract out services dealing with underground plumbing, such as broken pipes.
Employee Tyler Reese has been with Hearth and Pool off and on for years, and he worked on removing the decades-old pumps that still had sand in them. He said the hardest part of maintaining pools is the continuous sweeping. He also dislikes the film that lotion can leave in the pool.
“Over the years, it can build up,” Reese.
His favorite aspect of the job is getting to explore the area, seeing a lot of beautiful homes and pools.
Some tasks professionals can do include weekly pool and spa maintenance; in-pool leak detection, pump replacement and repairs; above-ground pool setup and liner replacement; and seasonal pool opening and closing.
If they can be found for purchase, Sweeney said above-ground pools can cost $4,000-$8,000 without installation. Readying the area or having the pool set up by a professional can be an additional $1,500-$2,000.
Bailey's Pools in Hulbert stays busy with pool installations, and comments from owners were not available before publication time.
Homeowners need to check with local ordinances, and consider issues such as tree roots and overhead wires in the area.
