When it comes to the depth of your pool, consider your ability to dive in from one end is necessary. The standard depth for a lap pool should be 2m. The longer and deeper the pool is, the more you will enjoy it.

Lap pools are perfect for exercise, but will it be able to meet the needs and expectations of your family? Adding an offset maybe a great idea, such as chairs, spas and other water features that will give comfort to everyone.
