A shallow pool will not allow large swim strokes and will not require you to tread water. Deeper water will not let you swim underwater for long distances without stopping to tread water.

What is the depth of a swimming pool 15x30?

A 15 by 30 foot swimming pool can be any depth. As a constructor of gunite or concrete pools I could make any size of pool any depth from 6 inches to 10 feet or more. The size of a pool has no direct effect on the depth. We did pools for exercising horses that were 10 feet deep for the entire pool. A pool of any size for normal use will have a shallow end, usually 2 and 1/2 to 3 feet in depth and will graduate to 6 feet for swimming or 8 or more feet in depth for diving. With fiberglass or vinyl liner pools the depths are established by the manufacturer and you will have to choose from the sizes offered what will best suit your needs. I believe some of the manufacturers may make custom sizes per the purchasers request, but the price will be significantly higher for a special order.

Which is bigger a wadding pool or a swimming pool?

All of the wading pools I have ever seen in over 20 years in the swimming pool business are very small compared to swimming pools. A wading pool is typically for small children. In general the pools are one foot or less in depth and anywhere from 6 feet to 10 feet circular or in a square. You cannot swim in a normal wading pool. A swimming pool generally starts at 2 and 1/2 feet to 3 feet in depth and goes to 6 feet or 8 feet. You can swim in a swimming pool because you have enough depth of the water to do so.
