In the most recent issue of Swim, there's an ad for Superpools/Splashpools--a sort of prefab and presumably inexpensive above ground lap pool. You can check out the following link to see Angel Martinez in front of her customized 50 meter two-lane home pool. My teammates and I are wondering if anyone out there has ever swum in one of these? If so:

are they decent for training? competing?

are they durable?

are they prohibitively expensive?

can you buy a bubble and keep one open outside in the northeast in winter?

(Note: one of my teammates suggested approaching a bowling alley and seeing if we could erect a lap pool on two of the lesser used lanes...)

finally, have any teams purchased one, either through your club or YMCA or whatever, to help solve the dilemma of inadequate pool space, a chronic problem for our team?

PS if this link doesn't work, just do the first part of it--i.e,
http://www.splashpools.com/ then click on the "custom" button to see Angel and her pool.
