SwimEx warm water pools are ideal for veterinary rehabilitative facilities. Our model 400 T, for example, can be built with a ramp, allowing for easy entry and exit. The resistance created by the paddlewheel current, assisted by an optional underwater treadmill, provides great rehab, and animals return to full function sooner.


Military branches and veterans’ homes around the nation prefer SwimEx resistance pools for training, research and rehabilitation.

Let’s dive into the key comparisons between SwimEx commercial aquatic therapy pools and one of our competitors:


  • Wide and deep current with smooth laminar flow.
  • Current can be used with elderly patients working on balance to athletes ready to get back in the game.
  • 99 speed settings and a current that moves up to 20,000 gallons per minute.


  • Directional swim jets provide a narrow, turbulent resistance that dissipates the further back in the pool you go.
  • Frail or acute patients find jets too strong or unpleasant.
  • Jets do not offer a wide range of water current speeds, with limitations of up to 1,000 gallons per minute.
  • Structural fiberglass shell, with ¾” balsa wood core for optimal heat retention resulting in lower energy costs.
  • Easy to clean smooth gelcoat interior. Lower maintenance costs with no liners to replace.
  • Metal panels with a vinyl liner similar to an above-ground outdoor pool, or 1-piece acrylic shell.
  • Vinyl liners eventually require paid replacement.
  • Mold and mildew can form between the panels and the vinyl liner.
  • All models allow for a customizable layout. Ability to change size, depth and interior layout to meet your specific needs.
  • Only some models allow for a customizable layout.


  • Up to 2 treadmills are available in a standard layout. If extensions are added, then up to 4 total treadmills are available.


  • Maximum of up to 2 treadmills available.
  • Moveable platform available in several pool models. Allows for zero entry and an additional work space at any depth. Doesn’t interfere with other athletes/patients who are also working in the pool.
  • Movable floor available in only 2 models. Moveable floor dictates that all patients need to be working at the same water depth and the same speed.
  • Many pool models provide the ability to treat multiple clients, at different depths, simultaneously.
  • Work benches allow for seated exercise.
  • Plyometric pads allow for bounding exercises.
  • Walking/ Running can be done 3 ways, against the current on the flat floor, against the current on the angled running pad, or on optional underwater treadmill
  • Limitation of just one pool model that can treat multiple clients, at different depths, simultaneously.
  • No benches or plyometric pads.
  • Limited ability to work on the upper body or core.

If you want a quiet, powerful, and virtually maintenance-free pool that moves more water in a wider area than any other pool on the market, SwimEx is the choice for you.
