I doubt your pool is 18 feet deep for one, most pools are only 12ft deep, why would you need such a deep pool?

At our old house, we had 15x30 pool, it went from 3ft to 8ft deep, and it was always cool in the summer, even on the 120 days.

A MAJORITY of backyard pools are actually 8' (or 8'6") deep. Some, not many, are 10'

Doesn't everyone have a 18' deep pool?

Good luck - trying to sell a house in the summer without a pool!

When we lived in North Phoenix, our pool water was always nice and cool, even in the middle of summer.

Now we live in Gilbert, and my end of June, the water is like bath water - too warm to really refresh you. Go figure.

Another thing our realtor taught us was how un-desirable West facing back yards are. The blasting afternoon sun both boils the pool and anyone in the back yard.

If you have a E facing back yard that's shaded by your house, its a much different story. WAY better for resale also...

Why do you feel you need to contradict each and every single one of my posts?

You just did it again.

You did not correct anything, the majority of pools are not more than 6ft deep, you just added your opinion to the subject. You seem to have a lot of trouble comprehending posts?

The "play pools" with maybe a slide, and no diving board, which are pretty common now as they are easier to build and maintain, tend to be shallower and all one depth, no more than 5', I've seen some shallower. Diving pools with an actual diving board have a shallow end around 3' and a deep end -- the "newer" ones seem to be 8' to 8 1/2' deep, the one in the house I grew up in, built in the 50's, had a 10' deep end.

Perhaps before you get so snippy, you should look at what YOU write - Post 21 - "MOST pools.....12ft deep"

Now you say "majority (most) are 6ft deep"

Which is it? Your two posts contradict themselves.

Don't blame me
