"Here’s a cool fact about this pool. Nearby, there is a huge room that was intended for a gymnasium that Hearst never constructed. The State then made it useable for IT and Archive area, so the water cools the computers… wild, eh?"Photo credit Trey Ratcliffe at Stuck in Customs.
That is a beautiful picture. The blue tiles look amazingReplyDelete
Very cool. I went on the Hearst Castle tour and stood next to this pool. It is every bit as impressive in person as it is in this picture. It took a lot of self-control not to jump in.ReplyDelete
Essentially every room on the estate is equally fascinating. I go to school with the son of the caretaker, and my university (California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo) has a Hearst Castle history class; when my mother was a student here, anyone who passed the class was automatically offered a summer position as a tour guide.ReplyDelete
I'm assuming that if the water cools the computers the computers heat the pool. I love it. Anyone have any idea how this is accomplished? Is it a passive system? Do they pump the water?ReplyDelete
I think that twice a day they dip the computers in the pool to cool them off.ReplyDelete
