Map of where you find this Amazing swimming pool
The largest seawater swimming pool in the world is located in Chile. The name of it is The Crystal Lagoon that is located at San Alfonso del Mar resort. Let’s invite you there!
This amazing pool covers more than 20 acres and holds more than 65 million gallons of water. The deepest part of it is 115 feet in depth. The cost of making the world’s biggest pool had a cost of more than 9,378,548.20 Euro! So any normal swimming pool construction is a bit cheaper all in all.
How does the pump system work on the world’s largest pool?
With so much water in this pool. You might ask about How does the largest pool in the world keep the water clean? First, it is actually a large swimming pool that incorporates fresh seawater, which is genius.
The pool itself got its own controlled filtration system that continually pumps seawater through a filter. It is a system that draws water in from one end of the pool and pumps it back into the sea on the other side. This system is very similar to the typical swimming pool setup. So this is not a lake! It is a swimming pool. There are no rivers going into the pool at all.
Also, the water in this pool is kept very clean indeed. People report that you can see the bottom in all areas, including on the deepest part. The size of the pool is also so large that this is a swimming paradise that is one of the very few swimming pools in the world where you can sail with a small non-motorized boat on it.
Worlds largest swimming pool is designed by a biochemist
This amazing construction in Chile was designed by a Chilean biochemist named Fernando Fischmann using the most advanced engineering techniques. It took him five years to complete it. It is also categorized as a large saltwater man-made lagoon but that’s not what it is. Too many debates on this. It is a pool.
Environmental enthusiasts all over the world should be glad to know that the pool causes no harm to the seawater or the surrounding ocean areas. The water is all heated by the sun and is actually about nine degrees warmer than the surrounding ocean water. The annual maintenance costs are estimated to be about $2 million a year.
It is likely that many more pools of this type will be built in the future. More and more resort areas are looking to create a more unique attraction and it is a lot safer. The saltwater lagoon successfully incorporates the oceanfront with the resort making use of the ocean areas like never before.
We really recommend some salty refreshments by going visiting this amazing pool. It will improve your health without being scared of meeting sharks and other interesting creatures that you can find in the ocean. The Crystal Lagoon is a swimming pool that is worthy to visit at any point in your lifetime. There is something about pools and the light blue color that they usually got.
