Just happened to pull up this article today. Didn't think anyone would add more after my last comment? I'm sure no one will probably ever read this, either? But, here's my hindsight.
The engine was about water. The pool is about water. I was and am fortunate to have the resources to do what I did. I would do it again.
In ground pools always retain 85% of their water in the coldest winter. This pool holds 18,000 thousand gallons. Water below the freeze line of 42 inches in Chicago does not freeze. Pool outlet to dry line is 8 feet below ground. 6" line to street is dry until fire engine from fire department draws the water through it. Downhill gravity provides positive positive pressure to the pumper once flow is established. No pumps, no electrical, no brainer> just water. It was always about water. P.M.
