a canadian company is making a splash with backyard swimming pools made from modified shipping containers. measuring 8 x 20 feet, or 2.4 x 6 meters, the patent-pending design utilizes the structural rigidity of a container unit to create a pool with a built in spa that can be set up in minutes. engineered to be enjoyed throughout the year, an integrated heater can increase water temperature at 30°C/hour (86ºF) in -10°c (14ºF) weather.
