Does it need to be installed in a special room?
It can be
installed in a sun-room, basement, garage or in a regular room,
provided the floor is well built. It can also be installed
outside, in-ground or above-ground. We will be happy to
evaluate your options and suggest the best for you.
How much does it cost?
the basic model is US $20,900 (Including main panel and poolside
control box and many extras - See
Standard Features). When comparing this with other products which do
not include installation, make sure you add at least $5,600 to
cost. With our product you will save also on the
installation cost (see below) and you will get a better
product: a more powerful motor, a wider,
longer pool, an exclusive electronic feedback system,
a stronger structure, a longer lasting centrifugal
propulsion system, etc.
Our basic cost includes all the elements for a complete
functioning swimming treadmill, PLUS the electronic feedback
system (unique to our product).
How much is the cost of installation?
One of our
representatives will visit your premises and help you decide the
best orientation for the pool, the electrical requirements, the
heating options and other options. The installation cost is
$3,900, unless there are specific site issues that make the
installation more difficult (e.g.: uneven floor, drainage lower
than sewage, insufficient electrical power). The installation cost
of the options (e.g.: extra jets, ladder, lighting, grab bar,
etc.) is included in the price of each option.
Discounts and coupons for local installations are available.
Other products come in pieces and you have to hire
a plumber, an electrician and a building contractor to put them
together. Others put it together, but charge you over $5,600 for

What are the dimensions of the pool?
The pool comes
in a standard size of 8' by 15' (inside dimensions). However,
other optional sizes are possible. The height of the pool is
4'. The water depth should be kept to approximately 40", for
Does it need to be installed in-ground?
It can be installed above-ground in a regular room.
Can it go through a regular door?
comes in pieces small enough to go through a regular house door.
Does it need connections to the house plumbing?
connections to the house plumbing are required. However, if you
have a gas hot water heater in your house and you want to use it
to also heat the pool, then we can evaluate this option for you.
What are the minimum electrical requirements?
Amp for propulsion system. Single phase.
220V, 30 Amp with Electric Heater, orv110V, 15 Amp with Gas Heater
220V, 20 Amp for optional jets pump.
110V, 15 Amp for filter pump (If no jet option chosen).
Is a 3-phase connection required?
No. Only a
single phase connection is required, normally available in a
house. This is then electronically converted to 3-phase for the
motor to operate. This design choice affords large savings
for the owner in the electrical hook-up requirements.
How do I prepare for the installation?
experienced person from our company will visit your location and
help establish the best conditions for the pool: flooring,
electrical, heating and positioning options.
The pool can be placed on any level surface with a load capacity
of 450 lbs./sq. ft.. This includes any basement floor or 4-6 inch
Are there mechanical things that require maintenance?
require maintenance. There are no oil or pressure tanks.
All parts, motors and pumps have a lifetime of an electric motor.
The water filter, of course, needs to be changed when necessary.
How much is the cost of water maintenance?
maintenance costs are minimal. The water needs to be changed
only every one or two years.
Should I use chlorine?
purification system in conjunction with the cover greatly reduce
water treatment requirements and keep the water sparkling clean.
However, all parts in contact with the water are built in a
special Stainless Steel (316L) so that you can use chlorine or
other chemicals without damaging any parts of the pool.
How does it work?
is moved by using a unique centrifugal propulsion system which is
able to push a very large quantity of water into the pool through
a large horizontal opening at the front of the pool (water inlet:
38” x 6”). A special distributor is used to even and smoothen the
The water moves along the length of the pool, from front to rear,
at a speed of the swimmer. It then enters a grille in the rear
positioned at the water level (water outlet), and it circulates
back to the front of the pool through the underwater side bench.
In this way a continuous loop of water is established, running at
a constant velocity and low turbulence throughout the length of
the pool for ease of swimming. Also, since the grill in the
rear is positioned at the water level, your legs are not pulled
down (a problem with other products).
The ergonomically designed side bench is also used for massage
therapy, after the workout, with as many optional jets as
While one person is swimming or exercising, another person can sit
in the jets area for water massage. A higher number of jets
(for two or more people) is also optional.
How is it different from a Swim SPA?
effect in our product is far superior to that produced by jetted
spas (swim spas).
Jetted spas pump less than one tenth of the water through
high-pressure nozzles (see picture below).
The jets in a Swim Spa: (See
The water current in a Swim Spa is usually turbulent and narrow.
Water comes towards you at a high pressure, but in a limited
Riverpool instead has a large and adjustable water inlet (38" x
6") which allows a large quantity of water to move into the pool,
creating a river-type water current.
The water inlet in the Riverpool:
Return channels are not required in jetted systems because only a
small amount of water is moving and the current speed is greatly
diminished by the time it reaches the center of the spa.
The Riverpool instead has a water outlet in the back wall.
The water is forced to travel superficially across the length of
the pool to find the outlet at the back.
The water outlet in the Riverpool:
How do I change the water speed?
main switch is turned ON, the water flow starts accelerating until
it reaches a minimum safe level. You can then enter the pool and
swim. That simple!
Two sets of sensors constantly monitor your position in the pool.
The water flow speed is adjusted according to your swimming speed.
In case you want to stop swimming and start exercising, you can
easily adjust the water flow speed to what you want, without
leaving the pool and without a remote control.

What are the space requirements?
The recommended area for a pool is 12 ft. wide by 22 ft. long.
An extra foot of space in both directions may be
required when the pool is in-ground, for accessibility. The
actual external dimensions of the pool, at the top border, are:
10' 3" by 20' 1". You may place the sides and the rear of the pool
as close as you need to existing walls. When water jets are
installed, it is suggested to place the pool border at least ten
inches from the wall, for accessibility to the jets.
For indoor installations, humidity is
something we need to deal with. Because the pool is small in size,
you can control humidity by keeping the pool covered when not in
use. A floating blanket which can control up to 90% of the
humidity is included as standard equipment.
What is the recommended temperature?
National Swimming Pool Foundation recommends 78º-80ºF for active
swimming and 82º-84ºF for general u
