A neat feature of some in ground lap pools as well as above ground lap pools is a one directional current created by a propulsion unit. This type of pool can be very short and compact. By swimming in place against the current, you can effectively experience an endless swimming pool . This not only facilitates a smaller construction area for the pool, but greatly increases the effectiveness of the workout of the swimmer.
Lap pools may be placed either indoors or outdoors. Indoor pools have the obvious advantage of being less sensitive to outdoor temperature fluctuations, but even an outdoor pool can be built to accommodate year-round use with a good heater such as a heat pump.
Having a lap pool installed can be very reasonably priced or extravagantly expensive. The cost is inversely proportional to the options and size of the pool. Many people, when considering their wants and requirements, find these additional costs to be a wise investment. A lap pool with a flowing current may be a perfect solution to your exercise needs.
