Swimming Pool depth

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi again, yet another question in the swimming pool saga, I am having a preformed pool and have decided on a 30m2 after some discussion on the forum. I now have to decide on the depth, due to mobility problems I can only swim with the use of a float for my arms, so dont want a deep pool, I think 140cm as this would come just under my chin when standing, obviously my partner and guests are taller so I am worried that it may not be deep enough. Has Anybody got a pool this depth and does it cause any problems (apart from diving!!), the preformed apparently are one depth with no deep/shallow end.

Re: Swimming Pool depth

the one we used this year was 1.5m which seemed to suit all. with the preformed ones you can get the pre formed shaped steps to fit inside this could be an option for you, I cant recall the website now but i will look for it, the company name i beleive is Istanpool. or the company that are building your pool should be able to help you, when I saw the shaped steps it was being used by people just to sit and chill on, ideal for a non swimmer.

Re: Swimming Pool depth

Our pool we have at the moment is 130cm that is the water level, not the depth of the pool.

My hubby is around 6ft and he can still dive in no problem.

Re: Swimming Pool depth

Our neighbour fell into his pool which was empty for the winter.

He broke his leg; he couldn't then get out because the pool was all of one depth and had the usual metal steps which are fine if you are floating but not fine if there is no water (and especially if you are injured).

He now has had proper tiled steps built to avoid any such problem in the future.

Just a thought...

Sorry to hear about your neighbour.

You should not empty your swimming pool in the winter, the reasons why..

1. You could fall in and hurt yourself.
2. Do not drain pool as the sun can dry it out and cause it to crack. If there is considerable rain, pressure can build up outside the empty pool causing it to crack.
3. Keeping the water in the pool provides the important weight to hold the pool in the ground. An empty pool is subject to "floating" or "popping" out of the ground due to "lift" pressure from excessive ground water caused by the heavy rains.
4. Please remember they have earthquakes in Turkey.

There are no laws to govern swimming pools but the TSI 11899 (Turkish Standards Institute) advise that childrens pools can be a max of 50cm and any pool that is over 135cm deep should be for swimmers only. It is the responsibility of the owners of the pool when the depths exceed 135cm for the safety of non swimmers.
