SwimEx is known worldwide for superior pool design and unsurpassed service. From innovative construction to the most advanced water current on the market, SwimEx pools are powerful, effective, and quality built – for life.
In 1986 fiberglass pioneer Everett Pearson acquired the SwimEx paddlewheel patents from an MIT hydrodynamist and research team. Originally recognized for founding Pearson Yachts, this gifted entrepreneur combined 30 years of design experience to create the first fiberglass swim spa. Through Pearson’s brilliant ingenuity and vision SwimEx became the leader in aquatic exercise and therapy for athletic training rooms, hospitals, physical therapy clinics, health clubs, senior communities, and private homes.
SwimEx is still owned and operated by the Pearson family.

Positioned in the back of the pool, the 99-speed paddlewheel pulls water through a rear grate, pushes it under the pool floor, and out a front grille. The current spans the full width of the pool, creating a “wall of water” that runs as deep as 30” (76 cm).
The SwimEx paddlewheel pool is the only water current pool that circulates up to 25,000 gallons of water per minute generating a river-like current. It accommodates all ability levels – from competitive athletes to recreational users. This ultimate aquatic machine is ideal for swimming, exercise or aquatic therapy.
Improve balance, run, swim, achieve full-body workouts. Accurately monitor progress and measure outcomes from one session to the next. The SwimEx EDGE touchscreen monitor lets you program workouts, swim sessions, and treadmill time.
The pool-wide flow means you can be anywhere in the pool and still access the current. Swim from one side of the pool to the other. Achieve upper body exercises with no additional pool equipment. Enjoy a smooth swimming experience or safely target specific muscles and joints. The superiority of the paddlewheel current delivers a better workout, more effective aquatic therapy, and consistent resistance for intensive workouts or gentle of therapy protocols.
Benefits of SwimEx Fiberglass:
Fiberglass pools have no liners. This means you never have to worry about tearing a vinyl liner or the cost of replacing one. The smooth surface doesn’t need replacing and acts as a barrier against moisture absorption and algae growth. It cleans quickly, is extremely easy to maintain, and has non-slip surfaces on all interior walking/workout stations for safe movement.
Between the layers of fiberglass, SwimEx pools have a strong balsa wood core for superior shell strength. Pools are both free-standing and self-supporting, and this insulated layer efficiently helps maintain temperatures.
