What are resistance swimming pools?

Resistance swimming pools (also known as training swimming pools or exercise pools) offer a convenient, efficient, cost-effective training solution for any swimmer looking to improve their technique and performance.

A propulsion system works in tandem with a motor to produce a current for the user to swim against, emulating the experience of swimming against a river current whilst in the safety of a swimming pool.

As the swimmer stays in more or less the same position as they swim against the power of the current, the swimming pool doesn’t have to be as large as a typical pool used for swimming lengths.

Propulsion systems can be bought separately and fitted into pre-existing swimming pools. Alternatively, resistance swimming pools can be bought wholesale, including an above or below-ground shell and all other accessories required.

Resistance swimming pool costs

A resistance swimming pool can cost as little as £17,175 (excluding VAT). This price would cover the cost of an UltraSwim pool measuring 4.86m x 2.13m x 1.22m, as well as the pumps, filters, and fittings required for it to function.

Remember that the price of your training pool can increase when adding on extras such as a higher-end propulsion system, like the Ultraflow Propulsion Swim System – £7,235 excluding VAT.

Ultimately, the cost of buying a resistance swimming pool depends on a number of factors including:

  • the size of the swimming pool that you wish to install
  • the model of propulsion system that you opt for
  • any additions such as heating systems, automatic covers or coping
  • the price you pay for installation and fitting
  • ongoing running costs of the swimming pool, depending on use
