According to SwimEx engineer Alex Powers, this pool is something SwimEx had been thinking about for a few years. Built with durable fiberglass construction, the 1500 T features the new zero-entry lift that doubles as a treatment zone, three different water depths, deep wells, a still water area, and a 99-speed water current zone.
“We were thrilled when Steve’s request provided us with the incentive to design and manufacture this pool,” says Powers, who created the 1500 T along with SwimEx head engineer Mark Fyrer and field service technician Jim Gagnon. “Steve wanted a lift pool that would give injured players easy access but also wanted to stop the lift at any depth. I believe we exceeded his requirements by incorporating the lift into a multi-functional pool.”
Positioned in one corner of the pool, the 5′ x 5′ zero-entry lift stops at any water level (between 0″ and 48″) for multi-depth treatments and exercises. The 99-speed water current (a SwimEx exclusive) remains consistent from one session to the next making it easy to measure progress and outcomes. The SwimEx 1500 T pool can also be customized. Change the pool’s interior configurations. Add integrated treadmills, vary the stairs, add box steps, and benches. Compare the difference between the Broncos pool interior (above) with the James Madison University pool (below). Notice the different steps and the addition of a treadmill.
“The SwimEx team is incredible to work with,” says Antonopulos. “The versatility of this pool is exactly what we were after when we started this project with SwimEx.”
Since building the first 1500 T for the Broncos, the new pool has been in demand. Are you ready to create the ultimate hydrotherapy room?
