Cocktail pools come in various shapes, sizes and depths. In average, cocktail pools have a depth of around 4-5 feet which makes them great for hosting small gatherings or just relaxing by yourself with the water as your own personal oasis.
Cocktail pools tend to be less than 400 square feet and provide an ideal solution for homeowners with limited outdoor spaces. Sometimes called "spools" for a small pool that combines a pool and a spa, these cocktail pools often include heaters, jets, and benches.
Most small inground swimming pools are around 10 to 12 feet wide and no longer than 26 feet. Small swimming pools are also usually around 4 to 5 feet deep, with most being no deeper than 5.5 feet.
A plunge pool, at the most basic level, is a smaller pool that's still deep enough to “plunge” into. Cocktail pools might be three or four feet deep. A plunge pool could be six feet deep, or even deeper if you wanted it to be -- but most plunge pools tend to have between four and five feet of depth.
Fiberglass pools that are 27' to 35' long have depths which range from 3 ½' to 6 ½'. Fiberglass pools that are 35' to 40'+ long the depths can go anywhere from 3 ½' to 8' deep.

The depth and length of the swimming pool should be 5 feet and 25 feet if you want to have swim laps in it. Most people are satisfied with the standard depths of 3-5 feet in a pool with multiple depths but it cannot be a right decision if you and your spouse's height are not suitable to those pool depths.
You can add elements such as spa or hot tub features (such as seating, jets, and heaters) to your cocktail pool. You can also spice up a cocktail pool with other water features. The adaptability of these compact pools makes them every bit as versatile as larger pools.
These spools have two sections: an isolated sitting section for spa relaxation and a larger swim chamber that is 50 inches deep. Overall sizes range from about 8 by 18 feet to 8 to 20 feet.
A cocktail pool, also called a “spool” (spa + pool), is a combination of a spa and a pool; the perfect solution to getting the most out of your limited space. It's smaller than a standard pool, usually having a surface area smaller than 400 square feet. This type of pool is essentially an oversized spa.
For residential pools, the standard maximum depth of an inground pool is usually 8 feet. But pool builders can build deeper pools. If you plan to install a diving board, 8 feet is the minimum depth you will need in the deep end.
Most of the smallest inground pools across all pool types, on average, are around 12 feet by 24 feet,10 feet by 20 feet, or 12 feet by 14 feet. Inground pools can be even smaller than 12 feet by 14 feet, but you might not be able to swim laps very effectively or host as many people at pool parties.

The cost of a spool is typically more than an in-ground hot tub but less — by about half — than an in-ground swimming pool. Unlike traditional swimming pools, the cost to install a spool is closer to that of putting in an above-ground pool.
The small size of a typical spool — 5,000 to 10,000 gallons — with sides that might range from 10 to 15 feet, means clients can often afford to upgrade to more expensive materials compared to larger pools.
A spool pool costs $22,650 on average nationally. A budget of $25,000 puts you above that with a standard-size spool and gives you the ability to add spa jets, LED lighting, built-in seating, or a water feature.

How deep are the pools? FINA has determined that Olympic pools for the Games need to be a minimum of 2 meters deep (about 6.5 feet), but 3 meters is recommended (almost 10 feet).
