That's A Hell Of A Deep End: New Deepest Swimming Pool Is 40-Meters (131-Feet) To The Bottom

September 23, 2014


This is Montegrotto Terme, Italy's recently completed 'Y-40' (aka 'The Deep Joy', which I've actually been called before), the new world's deepest swimming pool (previously: this one). The pool's central well reaches a depth of 40-meters (~131-feet) and is used for deep-sea diving practice. The pool also features several underwater viewing areas (including a clear tunnel) and is filled with spa water kept at 32 - 34°C (~90°F). That's nice and toasty. Still, 131-feet deep? How high is the high dive, a mile? Because I jumped off the highest Olympic diving platform once and I'm pretty sure I got brain damage. My mom said it was just swimmer's ear, but she keeps a lot of things from me.

Keep going for a video of the pool, including a guy heading to the bottom.

Thanks to Bryon, who once rested his head on the bottom of a 20-foot pool and was convinced it was going to explode.

    2 things. Isn't deep diving in those temps extremely unsafe, especially spa like conditions? I could be wrong. The other, more important point is this, they're diving in a big, giant, penis! Look at it! Look at it I said!

  • asdfadfs

    no, no, penis sticks *out* not in. you're thinking of tother one

  • S.M. Archer

    or its the model of a penis and the people swimming are the sperm swimming about, waiting to make their dive fast and hard only to be met by the wall that is the condom.

    jrose I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I've been doing,... http://GoogleIncomeFortuneOnline2014greatUawT..
