    Wow! I want one of these!

    This has to be the coolest residential pool I have ever seen. Enjoy.

    Saw it on youtube...indeed very cool. There is another pool on Lake Travis in Austin TX. Lazy River, 30 person Spa, giant water slide etc. etc.... It's residential and the owner spent 3.3 Million on it. Pretty amazing. He states it cost about 5500 a month to run it.

    I forgot, the monthly cost doesn't include Bartenders.

    Sorry.. as a diver.. I've dived commercially and recreationally.. its kinda lame..

    That being said.. it is a very nice pool. Our pool is only 9ft at its deepest end.. and I'd love to have a pool thats 20ft deep.. but this pool... is just a pool with a deep end.

    There is nothing like rolling off the back of a boat 12 miles off shore onto a seamount that drop down to 3500 ft

    I worked as a contractor (Marine Mammal Trainer), for the Navy's Marine Mammal Program for 14 years.

    Ever seen this pool?
