Long Description:
The Nemo33 diving pool in Uccle, Brussels, Belgium, has a depth of 33 meters (108 ft) at its deepest point and contains around 2.5 million litres (550,000 gal, 4.4 million pints, 660,000 US gallons) of water. The facility, designed by John Beernaerts, opened on 1 May 2004 and is used for dive training, leisure diving, research and underwater filming.

The water is kept at a constant 33ºC (91.4ºF) thanks to a large array of solar panels. There are two 'basins' and three 'pits', the deepest of which is 6 m (19 ft 7 in) across and drops to 33 m (108 ft). There are underwater 'caves' for exploration and three air-filled diving bells that enable diving instructors to communicate with their charges without returning to the surface.
