    Great idea!

    Here is a link that gives a larger pic and a lot more pics and info about them. http://www.readymade.com/blogs/readymad ... er-diving/

    Notice the 2 hoses sort of in the corner. One is apparently a suction hose and the other is a return. On the right side, you can see a return in the foreground dumpster pool.

    Nice idea but they are a liability. I know they don't meet federal VGB entrapment laws with the two pipes.

    I guess dumpsters are bigger in NY. Looks like truck "containers". would be interesting to see what is used to line the dumpsters and the filtration system.
    16K gallon, Pebble tec, beach entry. Two 1 hp Pentair Whisperflos. One for Paramount MDX2 main drain, Paramount debris canister, and Pentair CCP 520 filter. One for skimmer w/sock and Paramount PCC2000 in floor cleaner. 3/4 hp Pentair Pinnacle for waterfall. Fiberstars fiber optic pool lighting. Aqua-Logic AQL-P-4 control panel with wired remote in the house. SWCG system that is not used. Ultra-Pure Ozonator that is not used.

    according to the presiden of macro-sea, mr. belt, they were lined in plastic and the filtration was that of a regualr above ground pool.
