    Link: Basement Comforts - How? Why? And yes you are the only person out there with this. One hole and the dream becomes a nightmare.

    Never mind a hole...the issue is the humidity. Without a special set up, an indoor pool results in disaster. A moldy awful disaster.

    Some of my friends in a frat had a pool in their basement. That made for some fun summer days.

    I did this. About 7 years ago. College years.

    SAME PROBLEM!! Little pump, freezing pool. (same pool actually)

    Anyway---- I wonder if this kid thought about when it comes time to take it down.

    I didn`t think that through...

    uh.. basement drain? unless the thing explodes, i don`t see how a hole is a problem. it`s not like he`s got *paneling* or anything, just a pooty fridge and an indoor/outdoor carpet.

    He could get a submersible stock tank heater at the local farm supply store or order one on Amazon.com.

    Humidity isn`t a problem if you cover it when not in use. I had a hot tub in my basement, and it was fine. You can make a cover out of Styrofoam planks taped together so they fold up in a zig-zag pattern.

    Not a pool.
    Why not get a really big jacuzzi?

    5000 gallons = 50,000lbs = 22 1/2 tons. I hope his foundations are up to the job. Also, why has he got a tiny ass-pump in it? Too much information there!

    I agree with some of the other posters... it`s a cool concept but there are better ways of achieving the same thing.

    I`d worry more about the splashing and water going over the edges from even moderate activity...

    It`s a bad idea unless your whole basement is set up to handel it.

    As for the ass-pump: what a man does in his basement is is own darn business!

    @tedgp I did a quick recalculation on this one:
    5000 US gallons = 4163.369 UK gallons = 41,633.69lbs = 18.88472 tonnes (metric tons) = 18.58647 long tons (standard UK ton of 2240lbs) = 20.81685 short tons (standard US ton of 2000lbs).
    We were both wrong, but in the same ball-park.

    Looks more like part of a garage than a basemen, still going to have moisture problems.
