Swimming Pool Diving Boards
How Do You Install A
Swimming Pool Diving Board??
Or do You??????
If you’re building a
pool, talk with your pool builder about getting a swimming pool diving
board. For safety purposes, pools have to be 8 feet deep for diving
boards. The builder I used to work with would build the pools 8 and a
half feet deep. Furthermore, a smaller pool, say a 12’ by 24’ pool
can’t very well have a 8 foot deep end, as it would basically be a pit
in the deep end and hardly have a shallow end. The smallest rectangular
pool we built that could have a diving board would be a 16’ by 32’ pool
with an 8 foot deep end.
For safety purposes, I
would never recommend that you try to install your own diving board.
It’s just a bad idea. If you want a diving board added onto your in
ground pool, talk to your local pool builder and have them look at your
pool. If you need to replace your board but have the diving stand
installed, you can check out the boards offered by InTheSwim.
Of course, these are only replacement boards. Like their site says,
don’t replace a board with a longer board. Furthermore, I’d only
recommend replacing your own board if you’re confident in your
do-it-yourself abilities. For safety reasons, I’d have to recommend
having a professional take care of the installation aspect.
