Also to know is, how deep is the shallow end of a swimming pool?
The shallow end of a classic backyard pool is 3.5 deep and transits to a deep end of 5 feet or deeper. You can alternatively get a pool with shallow both ends and deeper middle.
Secondly, how deep should pool be for diving? Basically, for a swimming pool to have a diving board, it must be at least nine feet deep. Although, the depth of pool used in competition is much deeper (due to some factors) varying from twelve feet to eighteen feet. So, typically a pool that has a diving board requires at least a nine feet to twelve feet deep end.
Also to know is, how big is a standard swimming pool?
In the US, pools tend to either be 25 yards (SCY-short course yards), 25 metres (SCM-short course metres) or 50 metres (long course). US high schools and the NCAA conduct short course (25 yards) competition. There are also many pools 33? m long, so that 3 lengths = 100 m.
Is a 6 foot pool deep enough?
A recreational pool needs a large shallow area. Most pool steel walls are 42” high and the water level is about 4” lower—halfway or a bit higher into the skimmer. That means 38” standard shallow end, and typically a 6-foot deep end.
