Pool Size and Depth

The size and depth of the pool you select should be based on how you want to use the pool. If you just want to get in a cool off then a smaller pool will be sufficient. If you like to entertain large groups of people or want to be able to swim laps then you will need a larger pool.

The term Play Pool refers not to the size of the pool but the depth of the pool. A typical Play Pool is 3’ in the shallow end and 5’ in the deepest part of the pool. A Diving Pool will be 8’ to 10’ deep in the deepest end. Pools are measure by perimeter and surface area. For example: A small pool would be 15’ x 25’ would have a perimeter of 80 ft, a surface area of 375 sq ft and approximately 8,000 gallons based on 3’x4’x5’ depth.
