The Endless Pool is ready for its close-up!

Launched in 1987, the state-of-the-art swimming machine made its small and big-screen debuts just 10 years later. The versatile Endless Pool has appeared, as itself, for swimming, therapy, and sheer enjoyment. Flexing its acting chops, off-screen Endless Pool Fastlanes® gave a 'moving' performance as a river!
