A useful checklist for your future Endless Pool location
- A solid, level floor or concrete pad, capable of supporting up to 250-lbs./sq.ft.; most ground level spaces and on-grade concrete floors can support this weight.
- 2' wider and 3' longer than the pool's interior dimensions to allow for access to the pool and its equipment.
- The pool can be placed in a corner.
- The Water Quality System is typically installed at the front of the pool.
- The Hydraulic Power Unit can be located next to the pool or up to 75' away.
- The pool can be installed above-ground, partially in-ground, or completely in-ground.
- Above-ground pools eliminate the need to excavate.
- A raised platform built around the pool gives an in-ground appearance without excavation costs.
- Partially in-ground pools are the most easily accessible for people with mobility limitations.
- Indoors, breaking through the existing floor may be best for a partially/fully in-ground installation, particularly if you want a deeper pool.
- Indoors or out in warm locations.
- In colder climates, most are installed indoors for year-round exercise.
- Some owners have super-insulated their pools to swim outdoors year-round, even in snow!
- Pool Series sizes range from 6'x6' to 16'x16', depending on the model, and are customizable in 1' increments.
- Spa Series offers 4 sizes; the molded acrylic shells cannot be resized.
- Speak with a Design Representative for options and details.
- 39" standard, appropriate for swimming.
- Variable from 41"-51", suitable for water aerobics or to use our underwater treadmill.
Existing Space vs. New Space:
- All Pool Series components fit through a standard doorway for easy installation in existing spaces.
- Our Spa Series requires an 8' wide opening, so they're more suitable for outdoors, garages, and new construction.
Indoor Pool Considerations
- Humidity can be mostly controlled with a properly used cover. If the pool is uncovered less than one hour a day, a standard household dehumidifier or a window vent fan should be sufficient.
- Our optional covers also reduce heat loss and have some form of locking mechanism.
- Locating an Endless Pool above the ground floor requires the review of a professional engineer to ensure that the upper-floor room has the structural integrity to support the weight.
- Endless Pools highly recommends that both the pool and water quality system be located near a floor drain or have a sump pump.
- The area surrounding the pool should be protected, with appropriate floor and wall covering materials.
Outdoor Pool Considerations
- We strongly recommend our BiFold Rigid cover to secure against heat loss, debris, and unwanted access.
- Cabinet insulation can extend your open-pool season.
- All pools come standard with an electric water heater.
- A gas heater (optional) heats the pool water much faster than electric and is generally cheaper to operate.
- If you decide to excavate, you should first determine the height of the site's water table.
