Custom Hard Top Pool Cover

This SwimEx pool owner in Coronado, California chose an easy-to-use pool cover for their new swim spa. The grooves on either side of the pool are for tracks to be used for a custom auto cover.

The SwimEx 400 S home swim spa is one of the world’s finest fiberglass exercise pools. It is constructed in a one-piece design with no seams, has a uniform water depth of 42″ and holds 2,600 gallons of water.The paddlewheel-generated counter-current extends 18″ deep and is driven by the standard 5-hp drive system. The water circulates under the floor of the pool, creating a smooth, laminar flow.


While the pool was being installed they tested the current (on a low speed) to see the SwimEx paddlewheel current.  Notice how it spans the full width of the pool.
