Looking for pool

Post by Picasso » Sat Mar 25, 2006 8:28 am

Would LOVE to camp next to a pool this year. Who has plans to bring one? I can give you all the hot water you want. Water would be used to cool laser setup. Last year I took 200gals and could run for 30on 30off looking to dump about 30kw of heat.

So if I bring you 50 gal of water, you can heat it up for me and give it back? (basically, I give you a barrel of cold water and you fill it back up with hot).

Would be great for the shower and save fuel cost.

You're gonna have some problems with this-might try reposting as "heat your water" or something. BLM has banned portable pools(anything that holds 50 gal or more)in the BRC permit agreement that's in effect the next five years. Too bad-night swim would be fun. However, I'm sure some kind of setup for heating shower water would be acceptable, and most welcome. Good luck with your laser.

I thought about the pool deal before. I like swimming, so I would love to soak or swim a few laps while there. And everyone says that you can do what ever you want at burning man, you just have to build it. But I gotta say, a swimming pool seems like the most un-feasible idea I can think of. First of, its a lot of water, and water is such a commodity out in the desert. Secondly, everyone is really dirty with playa, so the water would get very dirty very fast. No fun. Interesting to find out that blm and the org out law them anyway.

Get the pool and the 10,000 gallons of potable water out there. (That's two big tankers (can't do it in one as it's an extralegal load) just for water and another big-ass truck for the pool)...

Have secondary (and maybe tertiary) containment so that contaminated water doesn't hit the playa.

Install a filtration system to keep the water fresh, clean, and sanitary. And let's not mention the peeing in the pool phenomenon...

Oh, then you get to pump *all* that nasty, dirty, water back into your tanker trucks (which you've just contaminated the hell out of by putting that palyafied, humanified, chemically treated water back into), dry out and fold up your pool, and get it the hell off the playa. In 24 hours.

I can see why te BLM and llc is leery of this. And why it's in the permit. what if that 10K gallon pool springs a leak and floods part of the playa, or get contaminated by someone who gets the runs, or keeping the dust out during a duststorm, or... well... you get the idea.

I can go a week without, then hit one of the casinos in Reno if I want to swim *that* bad... >grins<
