  •  San Francisco’s Fleishhacker Municipal Swimming Pool rightfully claimed its status as the world's largest heated salt-water pool. The pool measured 1000 feet in length by 160 feet across at the middle section and 100 feet across at each end. It held 6,500,000 gallons of filtered seawater pumped in from the Pacific Ocean. The pool maintained the constant 72 degrees required for A.A.U. (Amateur Athletic Union) Swim Meets.
