We have spoken with thousands of people over the last twenty years, and in doing so, have compiled a list of the most commonly asked questions about the Endless Pool.
The standard Fastlane produces a non-turbulent current that has a top speed of 1:10 for 100 metres.
The Fastlane uses a remote control to adjust the speed to suit any level of swimming or exercise ability.
The Fastlane is a swim current generator for your swimming pool, similar to a treadmill, that allows you to swim for miles without moving an inch. Easily installed in virtually any pool, the Fastlane uses a hydraulically-powered 40.6cm propeller to draw water into the unit. Arrays of turning vanes and conditioning grills smooth the water to produce a swim current that is wider than your body and deeper than your stroke. Ideal for swimming, aqua aerobics, and hydrotherapy, the Fastlane makes exercise easy and fitness fun. The Fastlane propulsion unit can move a huge amount of water - up to 19,000 litres a minute - under low pressure from a large opening (53.3cm x 40.6cm) producing a river-like current. The Fastlane is VGB compliant and ETL listed.
The Fastlane Power Unit is the heart of the hydraulically-generated swim current. Located remotely from the pool, the Power Unit requires a 240-Volt, 30-Amp, 50 Hz RCD circuit.
The Power Unit can be installed either indoors or outside. It should be elevated from the ground and placed on a flat surface. The motor is not designed to be run in a wet environment and suitable protection is required if the Power Unit is installed outdoors. If you choose to locate your Power Unit in an unprotected area, it is recommended the Outdoor Power Unit with Weather Guard be purchased for added protection.
At the end of the swimming season, it is recommended the Fastlane Swim Unit be removed from the swimming pool and winterised. In addition, the Outdoor Power Unit with Weather Guard should be covered completely and secured tightly. Freezing will not affect the oil that remains in your hydraulic hoses.
Yes, if the pool and Fastlane Swim Unit are both properly bonded and you maintain proper water chemistry.
The Fastlane Swim Unit is designed to fit in virtually any pool. We recommend that the pool have 20 square metres of surface area and have 90cm water depth at the location where you plan to install your Fastlane Swim Unit.
When completely assembled, the Fastlane Swim Unit is 86.4cm tall, 45.7cm deep and 73.7cm wide.
A Deck Mounting Bracket is anchored to your pool deck with 2-4 fasteners. The Swim Unit attaches to the bracket with a Hanger Bracket. The Swim Unit can be moved up or down on the Hanger Bracket to accommodate for the freeboard height of your pool.
The Deck Mounting Bracket extends 47cm onto the pool deck. The hydraulic hoses that run from the Swim Unit to the 5 hp power unit can run over the pool deck using the hose clips provided or you can run them under the pool deck using conduit or deck drain.
A wall mounting bracket is secured in your pool wall during construction or refurbishment. The hydraulic hoses run through the wall mounting bracket and pool wall, under the pool deck, and emerge back near the Power Unit.
The Fastlane is sold through pool dealers across the UK. If you are interested in installing a Fastlane in your existing or new pool, please contact us for the name of a dealer near you.
The Fastlane can easily be removed from your swimming pool. Additionally, you can have several installation locations for your Deck Mount Fastlane as long as you have additional mounting plates and your hydraulic hoses are an adequate length.
