Will I Need a Diving Well?

While a diving well is not necessary for KERSPLASH® Challenger, it does require a specific pool depth, which varies depending on the height of the climbing wall.

For the safety of all climbers, KERSPLASH® Challenger Pool Climbing Wall requires anywhere from 5ft to 9ft of water depth. The recommended pool depth is determined by which pool climbing wall you install. 

The KERSPLASH® Challenger offers a thrilling adventure with its climbable space of 8ft, 12ft, and 16ft. When the top safety panel is attached, the wall height reaches an impressive 10ft, 14ft, and 18ft. These heights are achieved by stacking 1, 2, or 3 panels on top of each other. 


While most standard diving boards require a diving well of 7.5ft - 9ft, according to the American National Standards Institute, most diving wells are actually 20ft - 40ft deep to allow for platform diving as well. Additionally, FINA requires that a 1-meter springboard have an 11.5ft diving well, and the depth is increased based on the height of the dive.

The suggested pool depths for KERSPLASH® Challenger are as follows:
