Endless Pools: Working Out in Home Swimming Pools

Swimming pools at home once meant splashing around, playing Marco Polo, or if you wanted to swim laps making lots of turns. To get a good workout most people still use a larger fitness club or city pool, but did you know that any pool, whether it's in ground or above, can be upgraded with a pump to provide an endless stream to swim against?

Any pool, any size -- endless current

Public lap pools are typically 25 yards long with multiple lanes. Some homes have lap pools, but they are often just one lane wide -- meaning if someone wants to swim laps they'll need to use the entire pool. With a never ending-style pool, only a small size is needed to work out.

Find the right pool contractor

No matter what size pool you decide on, it's likely to involve at least a thousand gallons of water in your home's vicinity, and the last thing you want is a mistake that could flood your living room. You'll also need to run heavy duty power supplies for a filter, endless current pump, and possibly a heater; don't leave the combination of water and electricity to chance. Pool installation can be a complicated project and the cost of a mistake can taint the whole project. Be sure to get expert advice and to hire a licensed pool contractor for your job. You'll soon have a pool you can be proud of, and you'll be on your way to a lifetime of good fitness!
