World’s largest, make that the second largest, swimming pool in the World!

We can’t miss going to this HUGE pool! Watch this video for an overview of the pool at the San Alfonso del Mar private resort, about 62 miles west of Santiago. The pool holds 66 million gallons of water, water filtered after it is pumped from the Pacific Ocean. The salt water pool is 115 feet at its deepest and covers 20 acres.  This longer video will give you more awesome views and facts about the lagoon.

Are you interested in the technology involved in building this type of pool ? Crystal Lagoons, a Chilean Company, invented the processes that make these huge man-made bodies of water possible. The company has been busy. A pool in Egypt opened in 2015, breaking the wool record for size at 30 acres and it is slated to be dwarfed by a pool in Dubai in 2020 with a planned size of 90 acres!.   If you want to know more about the technology that makes this all possible watch this video.
