Retractable-Cvrs

A. Retractable Security Cover

The Retractable Security Cover acts as a horizontal fence sealing off access to the pool. Indoors the cover controls humidity, while outdoors the cover seals out dirt, leaves and debris. The cover retracts onto a roller at one end of the pool and deploys along low-profile tracks installed on the pool coping. A lock-down mechanism is provided to secure the cover over the pool. The cover meets stringent ASTM F1346 safety standards and is strong enough to support the weight of an adult. The cover is available in light blue, aqua, royal blue, grey, tan, forest green and black. Sample color swatches are available. Covers for outdoor installations come equipped with a cover pump that automatically pumps rain water off the top of the cover. Endless Pools strongly recommends the security cover for all installations.

Size and Depth Options

Size-&-Depth-Options

When deciding upon a length and width for your pool, you should consider such factors as how you intend to use your pool, the general dimensions of the site, your own height, and additional space requirements for options such as jets, lights and a retractable security cover.

C. Wider Pools

Our standard pool is ideal for freestyle swimming but people who swim with a wide “frog kick” may benefit from a wider pool. Pools up to 3′ wider are offered.

D. Longer Pools

If you want to have more than one person using your pool at the same time, a longer pool is a good idea. We offer pools up to 2′ longer.

E. Shorter Pools

Looking to install an Endless Pool into a tight space where a standard 7′ x 14′ won’t fit? A shorter pool may be the answer. One to two feet shorter pools offer the same quality current as our standard pools.

F. Deeper Area Pools

A standard depth Endless Pool is designed for swimming and waist deep water aerobics. A pool with a deeper area allows for chest deep aquatic exercise and water running. A Deeper Area pool requires a custom liner and either site excavation or a platform in a room with an adequate ceiling height.

D. Bullnose Coping
Typically used when the pool is installed fully in-ground, the Bullnose Coping System allows the installer to finish with concrete and/or tile right up to the water’s edge.

Supplied in pieces that can be cut to fit a specific pool size, these extrusions are fastened down to the top flange of the pool panels.

Indulgences

F. Four Hydrotherapy Jets

The hydrotherapy benefits of the Endless Pool swim current can be supplemented with the addition of four concentrated Hydrotherapy Jets powered by a separate 1 HP pump. The optional jets are ideal for therapy and relaxation, and may be installed above the benches on any wall of the pool. The jets and swim current can be operated at the same time, permitting one person to enjoy the jets while a second per- son swims against the current. If you want jets, they should be ordered with your pool as they are not easily retrofitted. Access must be main- tained to the pool wall where jets are installed.

G.Two Underwater Lights

Two underwater lights can transform your Endless Pool into a beauti- fully lighted “waterscape.” These low-energy lights are installed by drilling through the pool wall panel using a special tool provided. These holes are fitted with watertight niches that hold a long-life LED bulb. Like jets, lights cannot be retrofitted easily. If you decide on lights, they should be included in your initial order. Access must be maintained to the outside of the pool wall where lights are installed.

Standard Liners
For flat bottom pools in most popular sizes we stock our liners in standard colors for quick shipment. If you have selected a custom deeper pool and/or you choose a custom pattern, it will be shipped separately by UPS ground. Allow 3 to 4 weeks for the manufacture of your custom liner.

New Tile Patterned Liners
We’re familiar with the backyard pool of pale Mediterranean blue, and light blue remains an ever-popular color among our customers. But the interior of your Endless Pool can be finished in a variety of aquatic tones. Whether you choose a simple flat-bottom pool for exercise swimming or our deeper option for vertical aquatic exercise, these beautiful liners will certainly complement your overall design. Each season Endless Pools offers a unique selection of high-quality patterned liners, each sporting attractive and realistic tile-like edging. Now you can finish your Endless Pool with a custom liner more appropriate for your installation.
