WaterWell Specifications & WaterWell pool planning information
THE WATERWELL is completely self-contained. All filtration, heating and sanitizing equipment fits beneath the skirting and plugs into a single 110 volt, 15 amp GFCI wall outlet (low heat pools, 1kW heater) or a dedicated 220v, 30 amp GFCI circuit (warm water pools, 4 Kw heater). The 4'6" WaterWell exerts an evenly distributed load of about 270 lbs/sq ft.
The modular construction of the WaterWell allows you to install it indoors in existing spaces and enjoy water exercise and therapy on your schedule. Basements, garages, any ground floor space will do. The panels, which bolt together to form the WaterWell, fit easily through any doorway. Our standard 7' x 7' (inside dimension) model can easily accommodate two people, but our customers frequently choose larger models to provide a little more room and to accommodate multiple users. To best determine how much room you need, consider your water-based exercises and activities.
Since it is the buoyancy effect of water that makes aquatic exercise and therapy so useful, choosing the correct water depth is important. We offer 3 different wall heights to suit your needs. Our optional Stairs are typically used to access the WaterWell.
The Water Quality System is installed on the front panel of your WaterWell. The skimmer/filter, circulating pump, and heater/controller are plumbed together with simple unions greatly simplifying installation. The system is pre-wired and each component connects to the heater/controller with color-coded plugs. User friendly computerized controls allow you to set the water temperature and control the optional lights and hydrotherapy jets. The super efficient circulating pump (110 watts) not only saves energy but is also whisper quiet. The washable filter and Nature 2 copper/silver cartridge greatly reduces the amount of chlorine required and are easily replaced from inside the pool.
On-going access is only required to the front panel where all of the equipment is located. Additional access is required when optional hydrotherapy jets are selected. Consequently, the space allocated for your WaterWell can be quite small. We recommend using our Layout Kit and sketching your desired location and the size WaterWell that fits in that space.
