What else do you buy when you have

...a billion dollars?

How about your own wave pool? We just completed this project for a client in Provo and toured it this morning. It's a constant wave pool, I guess like they have on some cruise ships. Here's a shot of it starting up: (Sorry about the quality, it's from my phone. I just tried to play them on the blog and they don't play all the way, but you get the idea. I don't know what the clanging sound is. )



It has two 3-phase electric motors and can pump 100,000 gpm. I won't bore you with all the other technical details. Here's a shot of it running at capacity. If you look closely you can see the motorized canopy closing in the background:



Here's another shot of it running. Notice the canopy is now closed:



Here's a shot from the top. The water flows through a grill and gets recycled:



No, I didn't get to ride it, but it's one of the cooler projects we've done. Extravagent, I know. You should see the rest of the backyard. Silly billionaires.

When we become billionaires and decide we want one of those, we know who to call! Thanks for sharing a little of how it would be!

The clanging makes it sound so menacing, like you're James Bond! Also, are those people associated with NUSKIN at all?
