Can You Change the Shape, Depth, or Size of a Pool?

If you’re a pool owner dissatisfied with the current dimensions of your swimming pool, there may be hope for you. Many swimming pool owners who are unhappy with the shape, depth, or size of their pool have asked if it is possible to reshape or change it. The answer to that question is yes, but there are a few caveats.

Changing the Depth

The process of changing the depth of your inground pool isn’t too complicated. However, if you’re looking to do this, you’ll need to do prior research on the height and width that you are seeking. If you want to add a diving board, you’ll want a deeper pool with more depth. Once you have decided on your dimensions, the work will likely only be done on the bottom of your pool. On the other hand, if you’re looking to decrease the depth of your pool or increase it, excavation work at the bottom is usually involved in the process. 

Changing the Shape

Changing the shape of your inground pool can be a more challenging process that will require more work done and resources committed yet it is still possible. If you’re looking to change the shape of a gunite pool, a significant amount of excavation work is needed. Moreover, multiple areas would need to be excavated and then refilled for this process. In some instances, this process could be costly. 

Changing the Size

When deciding to change the size of your swimming pool, you need to consider your own circumstances and how much you are willing to spend. In particular, the structure of your backyard and how much space is available to be accounted for. This is important because changing the size of your pool requires a bit of space due to the excavation and the equipment used. Projects in smaller backyards are often more expensive because much of the process needs to be manually done. Piping is also another important factor particularly when you are expanding your pool size. A larger pool requires more piping and equipment to function.
