Obviously, one of the biggest factors when it comes to choosing the right pool depth is cost. Every project is going to have a budget, and with so many aspects to creating a new backyard — cost of the pool, cost of the pavers, cost of landscaping, etc. — the depth of the pool is just one more thing to consider.
And the truth is that choosing a deeper pool will add to the overall cost. It’s more fiberglass on the pool, more excavation during the installation, and possibly a bigger crane to put the pool into place. Is all of that worth the extra money? That’s a question only you can answer.
