I live near an outside swimming pool which gets rough when wind blows and all the water churns underwater, meaning the water molecules are moving randomly but with some energy.

Can anyone come up with a method ( without mechanical means) of making the water into a whirlpool or vortex that is sustainable.

Come on think.... Nothing is impossible!

Its a challenge with a reward !

Refill your pool with superfluid Helium, and give it an initial stir?

i must admit that my question had ulterior motif
everyone is loooking for a great wavepower method to get away from these highly inefficient windmills.

the sea has tides and waves and random movement.
another technique could result from strong and large whirlpools as generators in their own right.

so perhaps a few sensible thoughts may sow seeds

Refill your pool with newbielink:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superfluid_helium#Helium_II_state [nonactive], and give it an initial stir?

Pull the plug?

You make a Falaco soliton. It's a U-tube vortex. Unlike a bathplug vortex, there is no "sink" wherein water is draining away. It's just going round and round, something like the bottom half of a smoke ring. How do you make one? Simple. You get a plate, dip it into the water, then stroke it slowly forward whilst lifting it clear. See http://arxiv.org/abs/gr-qc/0101098 along with




Also have a look at On Vortex Particles by David St John. Sorry, the link doesn't work at the moment.
