The recreational diving center Nemo 33 near Brussels, Belgium is home to the world's deepest indoor pool.

The Fleishhacker Pool in San Francisco, California was the largest heated outdoor swimming pool in the United States. Opened on 23 April 1925, it measured 1,000 by 150 ft (300 by 50 m) and was so large that the lifeguards required kayaks for patrol. It was closed in 1971 due to low patronage.
