It'd be cool to wakeboard in that, until I fall.
66 million gallons of water? I wonder how they filled it up?
edit...Chile's monster pool uses a computer- controlled suction and filtration system to keep fresh seawater in permanent circulation, drawing it in from the ocean at one end and pumping it out at the other.
They need to build artificial reefs and fill it with fish next...
and add a wave machine.
If they don't have motorized and automated tow lines, then they failed.
Quiet Waters Park in South Florida has a great ski lake with tow lines, so it can't be that hard to do.
Only in America would they build a large pool next to the ocean.
Well, it is an "america", yeah?
I thought this was going to be a thread about BV's skin suit fetish...
Color me disappointed...
That's the raddest thing ever. If only it had a 1,000 yard long swim up bar.
What a tremendous waste of resources.
Indeed! Except this pool is in Chile Or did you mean America as all-encompassing for both North and South continents?
It makes me have to pee just thinking about it.
That's what I thought at first too. But by pumping a continuous flow of native water with the only purpose seemingly being to warm it, the only consumption is the heat........which probably already occurs to some degree just by being in a shallower container with a reflective bottom.
They surely could have done it in a more lavish way. It probably needs very little, if any treatment.
Yeah maybe but what about when this happens?
Those not familiar with the monopoly dollar we use that is over 4 million dollars a year to maintain. They are doing something to it and something tells me pool boys in Chile come pretty cheap.
Probably just paying the 5,000 lifeguards.
The heating is all done by the sun.
I bet the retaining wall is stronger than the one in N'awlins.
And lots of it if they had the 1,000 yard long swim up bar.
why are there about 7 people playing in about 10 football fields of water?
I cant imagine any hotel or resort having the customer base to come close to halfway filling that thing......
No need to imagine...
If you were in the middle of that (god-forbid!) would you get out to pee?
Hell, I'd be the sick bastard giving the missus a sly one in there...
You don't want me in your pool.
The title "I want to drain this and ride around in it" had me confused for a bit - every time I see a big rigid pool liner sitting at a store I want to put an engine in it and use it as a boat. You could use yours as an aircraft carrier to an order of magnitude.
Then I figured out that you wanted to ride a bike inside the empty pool... d'oh.
thanks for the explanation... I didn't think of it that way. I too thought he wanted to cruise the oceans in a GAINT pool.
