We’re getting one of those steel framed Bestway pools, i can’t have bigger than 10ft but I ideally wanted 1m deep so the kids (8 & 10) could properly swim in it. The 10ft is only 74cm deep, does anyone have this pool and kids of similar age - can they swim in 74cm? Thanks

74cm is quite shallow. It's more toddler pool level (toddler pool at local leisure centre is 75cm). I would say that an 8 & 10 year old could swim in it, not very gratefully. It would be more for soaking and floating around. To be fair, you can't really get swimming in a 10ft pool anyway as my 10 year old would be nearly half the length of the pool anyway, so can just poodle about a few feet. If it's just for soaking in, splashing about and staying cool though, it would be fine.
