The Inflatable Pool
Life Saving Victoria has designed and built an inflatable pool for use in open waterways.
The Inflatable Pool is a 6-lane by 25-metre pool with a mesh bottom, that sits on open water. It is intended to be portable and adaptable to a variety of open waterways including inland waterways and the beach. The Inflatable Pool is an innovation being piloted to bridge the gap between swimming at a pool and in open water. It also offers a practical solution to regional pools that have high maintenance and operation costs.
The results of the trials of The Inflatable Pool will be discussed and how the pool can benefit communities.
