Michael Phelps Swim Spa vs. SwimEx Pools



SwimEx has been an innovator and industry leader in the Swim Spa industry since 1986.

When choosing a swim in place pool, consider the three following factors:

  1. Water Flow & Return System
  2. Construction
  3. Custom Options

SwimEx Triton

With a new 2015 design, the Triton is the newest member of the SwimEx pool line-up. Created for the customer who demands the best or nothing at all, it is unique among SwimEx pools as it features a propeller to generate the water current instead of the Paddlewheel.

SwimEx and swim spas such as the Michael Phelps swim spa offer a better flow than standard jetted lap pools. The propeller creates an effective water flow that is focused in the middle of the pool, pushing the water into the swim area.

But, while both SwimEx and Michael Phelps pools use a propeller, this is where the similarity ends.

The Triton has built-in, side-wall water returns for a smoother swim area. In addition, the SwimEx drive system is mounted below the decking at the rear of the pool, so noise levels are at a minimum for both swimmers and those sharing the space.

Both the SwimEx Propeller Triton and SwimEx Paddlewheel models have water currents with 99 adjustable speeds. The Triton moves up to 5000 gallons of water per minute that creates an effective and efficient water flow. The paddlewheel pools move up to 25,000 gallons of water per minute and the current is as smooth as a river.



Built to Last…Easy to Maintain

The Michael Phelps Swim Spa is made of acrylic. Acrylic surfaces are hard to repair and following a repair the finish rarely looks the same. In addition, outdoor installations do not withstand long exposure to UV rays.

SwimEx pools are handcrafted with a durable fiberglass composite, and use the same construction technique of high performance boats and aircraft. The proven design formula sandwiches a balsa wood core between layers of fiberglass, resin, and Gelcoat for an indestructible, low maintenance pool wall that has no liners to replace. The Gelcoat finish stands the test of time under the harshest UV conditions. Any damage can be easily repaired and the pool will look like new after the repair.

SwimEx proudly offers the best warranty in the industry.
