prices unavailable, Grrrr.
But probably 25 to 30% more expensive than normal pool...

good way to collect the lost pocket change, free bathing suits and leaves off the bottom.

they have an indoor version of this too. i wonder how deep the mechanics have to be to lower it. and how slow does it really go? the sun warms the water - how cold is it?

Well, sure - all you need is a 2-ton hydraulic piston with a 5` stroke, some high-pressure line, 2-way pilot-operated valves, hydraulic limit switches, an accumulator, a 3000 psi 2-stage hydraulic pump (that moves 28 GPM or so), the 5 hp motor to drive it, and the 220 VAC motor controller to drive that, wiring, the platform itself, excavation, temporary casting forms, concrete and bracketry.

It`s called a hydrofloor. Simple hydraulics under a rigid floor that can adjust for depth. They can make them up to olympic sizes and the floor can even tilt to allow a shallow end and a deep end.

Probably costs as much as a house! It`s a terrific idea though.

awasome pool. but with other pools to not have an outstanding insurance bill you need a fence. with this pool do you need a fence to not have insurance?

This is a wonderful answer to pool safety with kids around, not to mention scooping out leaves and crap. But what kind of massive underground machinery is required to operate this thing?!

Cajun247-Too bad the design wouldn`t permit hidden sharks with laser beams attached to the heads.

Don’t you mean ‘Too bad the design wouldn`t permit frickin sharks with frickin laser beams attached to their frickin heads.’

That being said, excellent multi-use and safety features.
