    This pool is crystal clear even in a flood.

    Not my pool. Click the image for the full article. Hopefully the link works, I have trouble with these "photo blog slideshow things".
    20,000 gal in-ground plaster pool with sand filter. Replastered recently. Mostly adding bleach and acid. CYA was high when I took over.

    That one was posted when the flood was happening a year or two ago, as I recall it is in Europe

    A beautiful contradiction of terms.

    Re: This pool is crystal clear even in a flood.

    With the plastic furniture I see, and I am suspicious by nature, is this picture a photoshop trick?

    Possibly of course however if the flood wasn't Swift and say the water slowly rose. The furniture wouldn't necessarily go anywhere.

    if its a photoshop, its a good one. If you look at all of the shadows of the pool and everything else, the angle on all of the shadows are the same and in scale.
    I personally think its real.

    I would lean to photoshop. It only has a small skimmer. No jets and no main drains. Couple of other flags on this play.

    Above-ground pools usually do not have main drains. Having one skimmer is not unusual (I only have one for my 16'x32' in-ground pool) and there may be multiple inlets. It has realistic features including a Trichlor puck floating dispenser and a pool cover that is offset on its reel to easily go around the ladder (i.e. unspool it then move it over).

    Now I see, I was thinking it to be a in ground. This would explain my other question why it didn't flood while the water level was up a foot on the benches.
