In this era of shut down public pools, I’ve taken the plunge and decided to install an in-ground pool. My dream of installing a 25 yard single lane backyard pool was crushed, however, when I was quoted over $70k for such a set-up. Makes me kick myself for not buying the house with that exact pool when I had the chance a decade ago.
Anyway, I’m doing research into alternatives, and I know a lot of pro triathletes use endless pool or other swim spa options. I had an opportunity to try a Marquis Sport swim spa, and was disappointed with the current.
As a compromise to my wife and kids, we are going to likely install an in-ground pool with either jets or endless pool tech. My pool contractor recommended a 700gpm Badu system at about the same cost as an Endless Pool Fastlane Pro.
Does anyone have any experience with either of these systems? I really don’t want to spend 8-10 grand, on top of the cost of the pool, to be disappointed in my dream of being able to do a swim workout session in my backyard.
