Did you know that the deepest pool in the world, “Y-40, The Deep Joy”, is located in Padua, Italy? The pool is used for recreation, dive training, and photo shoots. The pool was designed with ‘caves’, ledges, and platforms for divers to explore. A cylindrical funnel or pit in the middle of the pool plunges the rest of the way to the final depth of 138 feet. The water is kept at a very comfortable 90°F, so divers have more movement because they do not need to wear a wetsuit. It takes an astounding 1,136,000 gallons of water to fill the pool! Guests can watch the divers through viewing ports or the transparent underwater walkway.
We hope that you dive deep for knowledge! Remember to think kind thoughts, use kind words, and do kind things. We Love You.
Y-40 is located at the Hotel Terme Millepini.
The caves, ledges, and platforms range from a depth of 4 to almost 40 feet.
Previously, Nemo 33, a pool in Belgium held the record for the deepest pool for diving. Nemo 33 is 113 feet deep.
