Crazy idea; Whirling pool/moat around house?
I was googling around for a trip to the Loire valley of France and stumped upon all theas moats around the castles and it hit me;
How about you have a pool on the back of your house and around the entire house there is a moat?
But it's part of the pool AND it has a whirling effect so you can go in at one end of the pool, be whirled around the enitre house and back on the other side of the pool!
I know I've seen this on water parks.
But has anyone ever done this?

That would be pretty awesome. It should go indoors and outdoors!The tendency is to push it as far as you can!

Surprisingly, I know a guy whos building a castle with a moat. Its not a lazy river unfortunately but still a moat. The house will also feature a round shower at the top of one of the corner towers, a dungeon, and a garage door thats a drawbridge that lowers over the moat. Im friggin jealous.The following statement is true
The previous statement is false
