If you are thinking of installing a pool in your house, there are several things that you should take into account depending on the use that you are going to give it, and one of them in depth. It is not the same if it is used only for swimming or if it will have a more familiar use.
If it is a pool that will be used by the whole family, it is necessary to use a type of bottom and depth that allows everyone, regardless of age and height, to enjoy a pleasant time in the pool.
The choice of depth and the bottom of the pool work together to offer a relaxing moment for everyone.
Normally, pools should have an average depth of 1.30 meters, but this data can vary depending on the user that will be given and, on the bottom of the pool, as we have already mentioned.
If it is a children’s pool, the ideal depth should be around 40 centimeters to guarantee its comfort and safety. If the pool is for adults, the average depth should be 1.20 meters. At this depth, people can swim comfortably while enjoying a chat in the water at the bottom.
IF you want to put a trampoline, the thing changes, and that is that pools that have a trampoline one meter high, about the surface of the water, must have a depth of around 2.50 meters. In case the trampoline is installed two meters from the surface of the water, the average depth should be 3 meters. These measures guarantee the safety of its use.
If you want to build an Olympic pool or for sports use, the ideal is that the depth is 3 meters. This facilitates the practice of the sport.
Remember that the less depth the pool has, the less water you will use, the less electricity you will spend on the filters to clean it, and you will save money on the chemicals used to treat the water in your pool.
Types of pool bottoms
The bottom allows you to have a depth suitable for children and adults at the same time, in the same pool, and with a trampoline installed. There are four types of funds:
Flat bottom: This is the bottom type that allows you to have the same depth throughout the pool. It is ideal in children’s pools.
Inclined bottom: It is the type of bottom with a ramp-shaped inclination, and the further you go, the deeper the water will be. This pool is the most used in private pools because it allows both children and adults to bathe. The depth of this pool is ascending. It starts at about 50 cm and progresses until reaching a depth of 1.80 or 2 meters.
Spoon- type bottom: This type of bottom is similar to the previous one, but the inclination is more abrupt, with which people fall, faster and more abruptly, in the deep area of the pool.
U-shaped bottom: In this type of bottom, the deepest part is located in the center of the pool. It is also an excellent alternative to enjoy the water for the whole family.
