Are you planning to design a family fun, in-ground pool this year? If you have little ones, they can play a large role in how you design your pool. There are a handful of kid friendly features that you may want to think about including in the design. It is important to keep in mind that while these options are all kid friendly, children should still be supervised in the water at all times while using them. As you begin to construct your pool plans, think about these top kid friendly pool water features Peoria families are crazy about.
One of the top priorities for people using a pool for recreational purposes is keeping their feet on the pool floor. Both children and adults alike do not want to spend most of their time treading water while they enjoy drinks and play basketball. Often times, people build a traditional pool with a floor that slopes down to five feet without realizing that a single depth, shallow pool of three and a half to four feet is always an option as well.
Hybrid pools are a great option for the family that focuses not only on recreation but health as well. An L shaped pool is an ideal option as the short side can be used for recreational activities while the long side can be used for exercise, such as swimming laps. You are able to get numerous functions out of your backyard pool, making it an even better investment for your family!
What kid, and even adult, doesn’t enjoy a fun water slide? As you select a water slide, consider the materials, weight requirements and safety standards. A water slide should be made with high quality materials and should be able to support a maximum of 300 pounds. It should also meet the U.S. Consumer Product Safety swimming pool slide standards.
Springboard diving boards are the most practical choice for home, in-ground pools as they do not require as much depth or space as higher diving platforms. Springboards are available in different heights and can be adjusted to varying spring levels. It is important to have experienced swimmers if you plan to include a diving board.
