BADU JETS vs. ENDLESS POOLS
We want to help you understand the different types of swim-against-the-current systems on the market so that you can make an informed decision as to whether one of our Badu® SwimJet Systems is right for you
There are two main methods to move water which create a sufficient current to swim or walk against:
Swim JetsBadu® SwimJet Systems accomplish this by pushing water through jet nozzles that create an immediate burst of water with an initial flow rate of up to 400 gallons per minute near the pool wall. The system then pushes the body of water in front of it which in turn creates a current of up to 5,000 gallons per minute measured between 4 and 6 feet from the pool wall, we call this the "sweet spot".
River Flow Systems (ie Endless Pools®)Endless Pools® is just one specific brand of the "river flow" system. This type of system essentially uses a propeller enclosed in a housing which is driven by hydraulic pumps or V-Belt. River flow systems do not generate an initial burst of water the way that Badu® SwimJet systems do. Instead, they produce a continuous flow of water measuring approximately 5,000 gallons per minute.
