an easier way of shooting that could be to add a giant mirror to the bottom of the pool, they did it in Sunset Blvd, then again the pool would need to be roughly 40degrees farenhieght and that might distract the swimmers, then again so does a man at the bottom of the pool with a ton of equipment....
