When ready to step into your pool, you will find two steps that allow you access down into your swimming pool. Each of these steps are one foot in length and eases you into an area that is approximately 4’ 4” in depth.
At the entrance of The Apex 40, we added two small step-in seats at each corner. There is also a third step in seat at the corner of the right side on the deep end where the full-width bench ends.
The Apex 40 has a gradual slope that is just under 10 degrees. This allows for a gradual descent to where a final depth of almost seven feet is reached at the 40 foot mark. The water level tends to be about 3 or 4 inches below the top of the pool, meaning that your deep end will be in the 6’8” or 6’9” range.
The amount of water within this Aviva pool model is estimated to be slightly over 17,000 gallons of enjoyment.
THE SAFETY LEDGE
As with every Aviva Pools design, there is an added element of a safety ledge around the pool. This is an area that offers about 2 inches of depth around the pool which allows less comfortable swimmers access to hold onto or step onto. That feature makes it easier for those inside the pool to grasp onto a ledge to pull themselves up and to also step onto if they wish to get to the waterline or want faster access to the top of the pool.
