Traditional Inground Pools vs Endless Pools

About Us

Since 1988, Endless Pools has been the premier manufacturer of swimming machines, with over 20,000 customers worldwide. Our compact pools offer all the benefits of traditional inground pools, but in a fraction of the space. Our swim current is wider than your body and deeper than your stroke, allowing you to swim endlessly without compromise. Say goodbye to five strokes and a "flip-turn."

We can install a pool nearly anywhere, and existing spaces are our specialty. You might think some locations—like a garage—are inappropriate for a pool, but they’re perfect for an Endless Pool. Install an Endless Pool in the space you prefer at a fraction of the cost of a traditional indoor pool.

Traditional Inground Pools

Traditional Swimming Pool

With larger homes and smaller backyards becoming more common, and the cost of energy and water increasing in many parts of the US, traditional inground pools no longer make economic or environmental sense. Even small inground pools can require over 10,000 gallons of water, and many larger pools push past 50,000. That adds up to thousands of dollars in chemical, heating, and maintenance costs over the life of your pool.

A standard size Endless Pool requires only 2,500 gallons of water and our state-of-the-art water quality system uses a super-efficient 120 watt pump to provide circulation. All our pools come with a solar blanket and you can choose to add up to six inches of insulation to save energy and reduce heating costs. Our copper/silver purifier reduces the need for chlorine—in fact, our recommended level is lower than that of drinking water—so your home won’t smell like a local swimming pool.

For year round swimming, water exercise, therapy and family fun - an Endless Pool is the intelligent solution for today's world.

We offer five versions of the Endless Pool:

  • Original Endless Pool – a steel panel pool that provides maximum design flexibility and can be installed in new or existing spaces.
  • Endless Pool Swim Spa – a one piece acrylic pool that combines the industry's leading current with spa seating.
  • Fiberglass Endless Pool – available in a number of depths and perfect for family fun.
  • Fastlane Pool – an inexpensive, soft sided pool that's ideal for training or setting up in the backyard.
  • WaterWell Pool – similar to the Original Endless Pool but without the current generator—ideal for therapy.

Original Endless Pool

Traditional Inground Pools


The Endless Pool swimming pool is an affordable way to swim at home year-round.  Enjoy a daily swim in the privacy and comfort of your own home any time of the day or night.

Traditional Inground Pools often cost thousands of dollars more than a standard Endless Pool. Indoor swimming pools can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and require large enclosures to ensure year-round use.

Cost of Swimming Pools


When installed in an existing space the Endless Pool can be installed in a few days by two reasonably handy people. If you don't have the time or inclination, Endless Pools has a nationwide network of Factory Trained Installers who can assist with your installation.

Outdoor Swimming Pools often require large amounts of space and expensive excavation. If the Swimming Pool is in-ground, heavy equipment needs to be brought in and the installation and construction may take months.

Swimming Pool Installation


Endless Pools require a space as small as 8' x 15'. With Endless Pools Swimming Pools, you can install it practically anywhere indoors or out. Incorporating an Endless Pool doesn't have to decimate your yard and allows much more room for patios or decks around the pool.

As the average size of the American home has increased the size of the yard has decreased. Adding a swimming pool often takes up the entire yard and leaves little room for other recreational areas.

Space for Swimming Pools


With the rising cost of energy an Endless Pool is the environmentally friendly option. Requiring less space, water, chemicals and energy. A super-efficient 120 watt pump, digital heat controller and ultra-violet water purifier keep the water sparkling clean.

Traditional Inground Pools are expensive to operate due to the large amount of water involved. Extending the swimming season beyond a few months requires a large heater, which is costly to operate.

Operation of Swimming Pools


With an Endless Pool – you can swim all year long. With the included water heater you can heat the pool water to your desired temperature.

In areas with colder climates traditional inground pools can only be used for a few months out of the year. Furthermore most require winterizing, which is time consuming and costly.

Swimming Pools Usage


With an Endless Pool all you need is a half a cup of Clorox bleach a few times a week to keep the water crystal clear. Our Nature2 copper/silver purification system reduces the need for a lot of chlorine, reducing the smell and burning sensation typical in large pools. Available Ultra-Violet Water Purifier adds an additional level of automatic sanitization.

Traditional Inground Pools often require high amounts of harsh and expensive chemicals. These chemicals can become costly over the life of the pool and cause lots of frustration as you must constantly monitor the balance of your pool water.

Maintenance of Swimming Pools


With an Endless Pool you can swim as far and as long as you want – no flip-turns! The speed of the current can be adjusted to suit any swimmer from an Olympian to a beginner. The hydraulically driven, propeller system creates a smooth, even current that is wider than your body and deeper than your stroke. Our pools are used by top Universities, Swim Coaches, Olympians and Triathletes to refine stroke mechanics and technique.

Unless you have an Olympic size swimming pool in your back yard, it is extremely difficult to actually swim in your pool. Most modern pools are irregular in shape and only allow 4-5 strokes before needing to turn making it virtually impossible to get a satisfying swimming workout.
