Larry,


It seems like only yesterday you broke ground and cut in your fabulous
pool you have now. I was surfing the ol information super highway last
night and found these pics. What do you suppose it would take to rip
out the pool you have there and cut this one in??



I cant even fathom the costs of upkeep!!

somewhere in (Brussel) - Belgium

Found out some specifics for you Larry (just in case your on the phone with the contractors)

33 meters deep
660,430. Gallons of springwater at 86F, with visibility >33m

I understand that spring water amy be difficult to come across in your area. So I will be OK if you choose to chlorinate.

33m deep? The good news is if you dig that deep in Texas you might strike oil. That would probably pay for the pool. You guys would be the Beverly Hillbillies of the dive industry. smileys/smiley36.gif

Well Jason... you're just a Tadpole. We only allow Groupers into the special secret room with the 100 foot pool. smileys/smiley2.gif

I know... This stupid work thing is slowing me down. As soon as I can become independently wealthy I will post more. After I reach Groupers status, I will go back to Dallas. I really miss that place.

Yea, it is supposed to be one of the only pool of its kind, I thought it was in Australia some where ( I could be wrong) and it was the only pool where you could do deep dives for AOW ( I mean in doors...lol).

That is the only place where I know that you could qualify for your deep dive cert in a swimming pool.

I'd bet if ST found a place to build a pool like that and asked for donations they could get enough to pay for it! :)

If it was near me, I would donate all I could. <?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

I actually would pay $30 a day to dive there....


But I do get sick seeing iton diving forums. Just watch, in a month or two, someone will post about it again, excitedly. Atleast once a month I see a thread about it on Scubaboard it seems.

I wonder how they clean the bottom? Maybe they offer a PADI speciality in pool cleaning there.

Harshal - the SAS/NAVY have a dive tower on Garden Island thats about that deep in Australia but its not as wide as that pool. I wont one too!
