Residents Are Furious That It Costs Over $201,000 To Heat Their “Sky Pool” During The Winter

  • Residents of the building with a top floor transparent swimming pool bridge are fuming that it costs more than £150,000 ($201,853) to heat over the winter months.
  • “If it’s £450 a day and, at most, five people are using it, that’s £90 per swim. That hardly seems like value for money,” one couple who live in the development told The Sun.
  • “We’re livid… We’re basically heating the sky,” a resident bitterly complained about the utterly foreseeable maintenance fees for the one-of-a-kind swimming pool.

“The residents of the flat with that viral transparent swimming pool are fuming about how expensive it is.

According to the Sun, the people living in the Embassy Gardens development in London South Bank want the pool to be closed during the winter because it costs over £150,000 to heat and since it is pretty cold over the winter months they are not exactly desperate to take a dip.

One couple who live in the development told The Sun: “It is too cold to be used at the moment so it seems mad that we’re still having to pay to heat it.

“If it’s £450 a day and, at most, five people are using it, that’s £90 per swim. That hardly seems like value for money.”

Another resident said: “We’re livid. The outside temperature has obviously dropped, but the Sky Pool is still open to residents and currently uncovered. We’re basically heating the sky.”

The flats with the pool, which is 82ft long, stretches between buildings, and is 115ft up in the air in Nine Elms went viral in the summer for all the wrong reasons as social media users said it made them feel pretty ill…”
