Endless Pools vs. SwimEx Pools
For 25 years, SwimEx has been the leader and innovator when it comes to resistance swim in place pools. When comparing a SwimEx with Endless Swimming Pools, it is important to consider these four qualities:
- Water Flow
- Construction Quality
- Noise Level
- Custom Options
Why the "Wall of Water" Works Better
Both the SwimEx and the Endless Pool offer a better flow than standard jetted lap pools or swim spas. Endless Pools use a propeller to push a water flow that is about 21" wide and 18" deep, located in the middle of the pool. It is a narrow flow and, depending on the swimmer, may be too narrow for effective swimming.
Using its paddlewheel technology, SwimEx Pools provides a wider and deeper current than an Endless Pool so you can be anywhere in the pool and still take advantage of the current. Imagine a consistent wall of water as wide as the pool and up to 30" deep. SwimEx offers the deepest and widest current flow on the market.
Finally - it's about the flow: the current in a SwimEx pool has 99 speed settings and moves up to 30,000 gallons per minute in a smooth river-like current. Endless pools move up to 5,000 gallons per minute.
Built to Last...Easy to Maintain
The original Endless swimming pool, which offers their best water flow, is made with a vinyl liner in a galvanized steel shell. The liner needs to be replaced every few years. They also recommend replacing the hydraulic motor every 3-5 years.
Made from strong fiberglass composite, SwimEx pools have the same durable construction as fiberglass boats. The proven design formula sandwiches a balsa wood core between layers of fiberlass, resin and gelcoat for an indestructible, low maintenance pool wall with no liners to replace. With confidence in our construction, SwimEx proudly offers the best warranty in the industry.
Experience our Exceptional Pools
The hydraulic motor that drives the Endless pool is located at the front end of the pool and can make the surrounding area quite loud.
The SwimEx drive system is mounted below your decking at the rear of the pool, so noise levels are at a minimum for both swimmers and those sharing the space.
At SwimEx, every pool is built to your exact specifications with countless custom options so it looks great in your home and meets your specific exercise needs.
