Sure, there are pools that look a lot like our iPool® therapy pool and even come with a lower price tag. Average above ground pools need to be bigger as the pool gets deeper to spread the water pressure over a wider area. Even a typical steel frame above ground pool is about sixteen feet long to manage three and a half feet deep of water pressure. When you make the pool a rectangle instead of a circle, then the walls need to be even stronger because water pressure naturally expands as a circle.
Not all of us have a backyard to set up a sixteen foot five thousand gallon pool.
This is what makes the iPool® different. We made a stronger and thicker galvanized steel frame with five layers of river rafting liner that is sturdy enough to handle this type of water pressure with only the surface area of an SUV.
The standard Endless Pool is made out of a metal tub of steel. Even the Swim Spa is made out of an acrylic shell. We save you on hidden installation fees, a few thousand dollars, and a couple days of assembly by using a simple galvanized steel frame you need only an hour to assemble instead of a solid metal shell.
Then, to bring the price even lower we don’t use a noisy motor or artificial current. We use our patented dual harness system instead. There is no artificial current for you to fight with. You don’t have to feel water slamming into your face, eyes, and nose whenever you want to swim. There’s nothing magical about an artificial current, so why let the pool be your boss?
With the iPool® just turn some knobs to adjust the resistance, close your eyes and swim any stroke you want. You can’t close your eyes and even do backstrokes in an Endless Pool. You can’t adjust the resistance with a simple tether and resistance cord.
Our iPool I offer 45″ of water depth, even deeper than the average 39″ of an Endless Pool. With our dimensions you don’t have to worry about your arms hitting the floor or the walls of the pool. No black boxes, no gimmicks, we just use simple engineering and efficiency to bring the time tested concept of aquatic therapy right to your doorstep.

Heating Your Pool for Hydrotherapy
To experience the full benefits of aqua therapy, many of our customers choose to add a heater to their pool. The process can be done easily enough but will require a few steps to get started, such as having an electrician install a setup.
Our heaters will pool in 5-10 hours and require 3 hours a day to keep the pool heater to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
