Coooool: Wooden Deck Sinks To Reveal Hidden Pool

magic-swimming-pool.gif

This is a pool built by Agor Engineering that has a wooden floor that can be raised and lowered hydraulically (previously: these concrete ones). You can adjust the height too, so if you just want to sit in tit-deep water and sip cocktails, you can do that. Or you can make it go all the way down and play Marco Pollo. Or you can save yourself tens of thousands of dollars and just buy an inflatable kiddy pool at Target and set that shit up in the front yard and wave at all the cars that pass by. Just don't ask any joggers if they want to join you. Apparently some of them find that creepy.

Keep going for a video showing the whole transformation process.

Thanks to Roland, who prefers his pool unhidden so he doesn't forget he has it.

    it should be a tennis court so when it goes down you can play pool volleyball too.

  • Looks like a "Dave"

    Just be sure to lower the deck before you dive in or you'll get splinters in your forehead.

    wouldnt the wood warp??

  • GreyMatter

    Plastic lumber?

    I remember building something like this in Minecraft.

  • Cool, but pretty old. Youtube says at least 10 months old.

  • ODwanKenObi

    First time I've seen it. But i'm old and don't know how to use the youtubes too good.

  • lorrrd

    10 months are ages - my nerdism says : drop that old-fashioned scarface fantasies & keep on sharing !

  • well that looks like something that will work for about a month.

    "Ok Im going to bed I put the pool up" Hey! I was going to swim! "ok give me 30 minutes and it will be back up.

    This is one of those ideas that looks cool the first few times you use it but then it just becomes a burden and annoying. First off, the maintenance for this thing is high. Think of how much work a regular deck takes to keep from being damaged due to rain. Also, due to the necessary cracks it has to have on it's sides to let water flow past, you're going to get a lot of dirt and crap in the water all the time. Bad idea all around.

  • GreyMatter

    Have you heard of plastic lumber?

  • cbjxiii

    As opposed to a "normal" pool which is 100% exposed 100% of the time?

    I guess if you are rich enough for a fancy pool you probably don't worry about this kind of stuff. There are people being paid to worry about this kind of stuff for you.

  • jarek redman

    Welcome to my home, bitches.

  • MustacheHam

    Just hope nobody flips the switch while you're having your picnic on the deck.
    A pretty cool idea btw. :D

  • Matthew Anderson

    When's Tranzor-Z gonna fly outta there?!

    If you're rich enough to afford that, couldn't you just get a house with a yard big enough for a deck AND a pool? And then if the thing breaks down you'll just have to have somebody come out and fix the damned thing, and in the meantime you probably won't be able to use it either way. Meh...

    If you have a kid inside you might want to get it to a lower water height.
    It would be conveniente for cleaning, you just submerge the deck and it's clean, if some leaves fall in the pool you just raise the deck and you sweep

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    I think if I had one of these it would be ages before I actually swam in it, I'd just spend ages raising and lowering it. Lovely.

  • Bro Jones

    I hope I can be rich someday
