Pledged $5 for this just because it looks like a great project, even if there's no "gift" associated with it.
Looking forward to seeing this get done, one day!
Any updates on where you are in the process?
just got my hat in the mail. love it!
Heyo -- Anybody see this graphic in today's NYTimes that looks an awful lot like the +Pool?
Check it out:
fill and they will swim ...
Last moment donation to get you all a little closer to $50k... Good job guys. ;)
Love it. Contributed to it. But stop giving away tons of lasts-100,000 years plastic junk like stickers, koozies & beachballs that will wind up in the River. Sustainability ought to be a value of this project. Plastic junk isn't part of that.
I am proud to be a backer of this project and would love for this pool to actually be completed by the time I graduate from college next summer :) GOOD LUCK!!!!
I have one question about the filtration process. Wouldnt it also keep the dirty water in the pool? Pool water, not constantly filtered gets pretty gross with people's hair, and skin and saliva, etc. If this has no way to escape out wouldnt it get gross in the pool very quickly?
You are an insperation for the way in which you have created the synergy that is propelling this project.. Way to go!
900th backer !! Let's do this.
DC and the Potomac are calling. I can't wait to see this work.
wow this is such a great idea. I love swimming in rivers but dont do it often because of how dirty they can be. This is such a cool thing because not only can people workout in the pool but you can have people just relaxing and enjoying the weather. It would be great to see these all around the world.
We are going to need one in the Charles River as well :) Great idea!
I think thin this is a f-ing awesome idea! I swim all summer and winter long in New York and I think this would be the best pool in the five boroughs by far.
Quick questions though, would the water be brackish or salty? I actually like swimming in salt water, so no problem from me. Just curious about the filtration system (desal is hard and expensive).
kiddie pool mock up!!!!!!
Excellent idea and even better proposal. I am confident that you will reach your 100k goal and look forward seeing how this idea develops. I already pledged for my koozie, but if there is any other way that I can get involved with this project/idea, please let me know. Congrats!
Yeah $25,000 !!!
As an Independent USANA Associate, I would like to help NYC to build this wonderful project and it will last to many generations. I am a $2500 donor now. and +Pool: A Floating Pool in the River For Everyone. Every dollar it counts. Thank you all.
We will make a special trip up north just to swim in this pool! Let's make it happen!
love this idea. once we get New York funded, let's float one down to DC!
you should drop one at the top of a river, let it float down, pick it up at the ocean, and bring it back. it would be the greatest waste of time ever.
I like this because the cross between innovation and splashing in a pool. Can I also put a vote towards dropping one outside Pittsburgh city centre.
OH HELLS YEAH. I'm in.
+ continues to be very exciting… all the best, heroes
THIS. WILL. HAPPEN.
Well done! Can't wait to go swimming!!!
Will the test model be large enough for a someone to bob around in?
