This incredible disappearing pool cover doubles as a deck

One second it’s a snazzy, modern-looking wooden deck, and the next second its underwater — the floor of the most flossy pool of all time.

What you’re looking at is the moveable floor system from Agor, a company that specializes¬†in designing, manufacturing, and installing custom mechanical swimming pool floors. That’s a weird thing to specialize in for sure, but you can’t deny how amazing these systems look.

Based on what we can gather from the company’s website, these covers employ a water-based hydraulic system to move themselves up or down. When fully raised, the floor functions like a normal wooden deck, and is capable of supporting hundreds of kilograms per square meter. In other words, they’re perfectly safe to walk, run, or have a raging dance party on with all your friends. And since the water below is completely inaccessible when the system is deployed, it’s far safer than a normal pool cover.

At the press of a button, the deck will slowly begin to lower itself — but here’s the kicker: you can stop it whenever you want. It doesn’t have to go all the way down. That way, if you only want the pool to be a few feet deep for the kids to play in, all you’ve got to do is stop the deck when it’s partially lowered.¬†

Since Agor does custom installations, prices vary from pool to pool, but it’s probably a safe bet that one of these systems will cost you an arm and a leg. For more info or to request a quote, go here.
