so, does anyone actually read these questions?

basicaly what i need is a thick, heavy duty glass/plastic or vynal pool cover to go over the large in ground pool at my fiancee's parents house.
we are having the wedding receptoin thare, and we want to cover the pool to make it into a dance floor...but we want it to be clear so we can "dance on water"
maybe light the pool, and float some flowers on the waters surface?

trouble is i cant find anything like this online, and we dont know anyone who can custome make anything like this....and it has to be strong anouth to hold 100 people!

any ideas or websites?
thanks guys!

   It looks like a big engineering problem since you have to have something very sturdy and safe. Often when something is used for holding people the requirements to bare the weight must hold 10 times the expected weight. Unless you or someone you know is an engineer with complete knowlege of the baring requirements of the material, it would be best to hire an architect to design it. You may be able build it if you have the building experience. it all depends on how it is designed and if there are special requirements to building. I wonder what materials would be recomended? Glass block? A specially designed plexiglass? Would it need a frame and if it did would it have a plexiglass frame? Another possibilty is to talk to someone that designs things for theater or film. You could find a stage company who would build it and remove it. I've seen rock shows that have clear floors on the stage for the peformers but usually the clear plexiglass is a way to have lighting from below like a disco floor. I hope you are able to complete you project. It sounds intriging.
