Endless Pools® vs. Traditional In-ground Pools

For family fun and entertaining, Endless Pools offer all the benefits of a traditional in-ground pool, PLUS so much more.

  • Year-round use in the privacy, comfort, and safety of home, day or night.
  • Installation in existing rooms (patios, garages, basements) due to its modular construction.
  • Affordable to heat and maintain due to its compact size.
  • Less chlorine than tap water thanks to our UV filtration.
  • Swim against our fully adjustable current — no flip-turns!

Lower costs, more versatility, eco-friendly design – that’s what makes an Endless Pool the intelligent choice for year-round swimming, exercise, therapy, and family fun.

Compare: Endless Pools Traditional In-ground Pools


Affordable, indoors or out

Endless Pool models start at $23,900 with a swim current

Just $9,400 for a WaterWell therapy pool (not for swimming)

Thousands more than standard Endless Pools in most cases

Indoor pools can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, need large enclosures for year-round use


Year-round access. It's always summer with an Endless Pool!

Everything you'd do in a traditional in-ground pool – get fit, relax, cool off, play – plus swimming and at a lower cost!

Only a few months a year in most climates

Most require costly, time-consuming winterizing


Smooth, even current – wider than your body, deeper than your stroke

Swim as long as you want – no flip-turns!

Easily adjustable speeds

Friendly to beginners, challenging to Olympians

Extremely difficult without an Olympic-size pool

Most traditional in-ground pools only allow 4-5 strokes before each flip-turn

Virtually impossible to get a satisfying workout


Perfect family fun all year long.

For boogie boarding, Marco Polo, or just splashing around, kids and grandkids love the adjustable current.

During the warm months only, a traditional in-ground pool is a great place to cool off and spend quality family time together.


Custom sizes and finish options to design the pool of your dreams.

Use any finish material – tile, marble, wood, etc. – to match your décor.

A range of different models to suit your lifestyle

Larger pools cost more to finish.

With a traditional in-ground pool, you’re limited to only those materials that your pool builder is comfortable with.


Requires a space as small as 9' x 14'

Installs practically anywhere, even in existing rooms.

Allows much more room for patios or decks than traditional in-ground pools

Often takes up the entire yard

Leaves little room for other recreational areas.

Energy Efficiency

Uses less space, water, and chemicals than traditional in-ground pools

Lower energy bills from insulated pool walls and less water

Super-efficient 120-watt pump

Expensive to operate due to the large amount of water involved

Extending the season beyond a few months can require a large heater and high energy bills


Takes just a few days with two handy people in an existing space

Affordable Factory-Trained Installers available

Simple enough for DIY

Traditional in-ground pools require expensive excavation with industrial backhoes

May take months.


Minimal chlorine

Nature2 copper/silver purification system, kinder on your skin and eyes

Automatic UV Water Purifier available

Solar cover included

Large amounts of harsh and expensive chemicals required

Costly over the life of the pool

Difficult to maintain consistent pH balance
