The 48" wall panel is becoming very popular especially among those who play pool sports as the taller panel provides a deeper shallow end without sacrificing flat area.

As you can see in the diagram, the 42" panel is depicted by the dotted line whereas the 48" panel is the solid line. The 48" panel offers a more ideal water level so that standing in the shallow end is an enjoyable hangout area for adults. In addition, due to the 6" of added depth, the slope leading to the hopper is more gradual than in a 42" wall pool - This leads to a safer diving pool by providing additional space for a diver to arc and surface without risk of hitting their head.
