This has to be one of the strangest things we’ve come across in a while. According to cutting edge news site New Atlas, a Canadian company called Modpools is repurposing shipping containers into trendy above-ground swimming pools, complete with LED lighting and window. The pools are relocatable, designed to take advantage of the container’s strength & portability, and can be installed with “minutes” of delivery. Indeed….We’ve might have seen everything now.
“What we mean when we say it can be set up in minutes, is that it delivers as fully functional, so all the plumbing, heater and electrical are all built into the pool,” he tells New Atlas. “So once you lay it on the foundations, you make two service connections, which are really just your gas connection and an electrical plug. And once you fill it with water, it is ready to go.”
