The design is basically a custom ceramic floor that is set on a metal grid. As the grid lowers water seeps in from slots on the sides. The pool can be set at various levels for wading, laps or even diving. Setting it at a shallow level is great for kids. When a party erupts, the pool disappears to make room for a dance floor.So imagine: now you see it; now you don’t. And when you don’t, the water is protected and insulated out of sight, but ready to be used again at the touch of a button.
Hydrofloors, the British company responsible for the disappearing swimming pool, appear to specialize in pools so high tech, James Bond would feel right at home. And like so many bits of really cutting edge technology, when you look at this product line, you can’t help but think you’re looking at the future… and that -- just maybe -- the future is now.
