    Really insane. I recon cleaning should not be a problem because the owner will be able to afford the most expensive waterproof robot for doing the job.

    Check out the filtration systems they use:

    I think if I was much younger, this would become my livelihood, making acrylic systems for the rich and famous although capital would be a problem. But if capital was sorted, I would be rich and famous as well in a couple of years.
