Pool With Hidden Talent
Certikin International's new Hidden Water Pool is hailed as the complete answer for those who are short on space or are seeking the ultimate in safety.
The American design comprises a pool shell that includes a platform that is raised or lowered on a column mounted in the floor of the pool. When the pool is not in use, the platform is at deck level, supported by a series of stabilising legs.
When the pool is in use, the hydraulic cylinder drops the platform to any required depth below water level, allowing it to become anything from a shallow paddling pool to a full-scale swimming pool. The water can drop to a depth of 5ft 6in in two minutes.
When the platform rises, the water flows into a gap between the platform and the edge of the pool. When the platform reaches deck level, the gap closes by means of a slightly cantilevered coping that seals against the platform's narrow rubber flange.
The platform can be finished with any kind of material, and it can incorporate a table for dining, but this can also 'disappear' allowing the space to be used as a dance floor etc. The structure has been designed to support loads up to 9 tonnes.
