The operative word here is "high" dive. 8' is the normal depth for an average pool with or without a dive board. With most dive boards in residential pools the depth would be closer to 9' or 10'. I am not certain as to the depth of a high dive platform but my thinking would be in the range of 20' deep. There are specific engineering figures on Olymmpic type pool measurements.
In diving events the highest diving platform is 10 metres high, the water is at least 16 feet deep, even at that depth I go all the way down to the bottom of the pool.
No reason not too. I am not sure I would dive off the high dive and do a belly flop, but swimming is good for you.
If you want to jump and/or dive into a swimming pool, the water level should be atleast 5 feet deep!
you pass out
The swimming pool in Beijing Water cube is 13 metres deep
Keep Children Supervised Never dive into a swimming pool Know where you are and where youre going

...how deep would you like it to be?
swimming you have to go in a pool where as diving you dive into water from a height
