COUNTER-CURRENT SYSTEMS Designed to challenge swimming ability, the EVAstream counter-current from Golden Coast

be used for lower-level activity such as rehabilitation, or just to aid relaxation when unwinding in the pool. EVAstream is extremely energy efficient and fits to a standard 16A 230V connection, with a consumption of just 2.2kW. It has been extensively tested to ensure it meets the most stringent safety standards, including DIN EN16582-1/2/3, EN16713-2, EN13451-1/3. EVAstream is available as a recessed model for new pool builds, or as a surface-mounted model for retrofitting onto existing pools. Golden Coast also offers the BADUJET Turbo Pro, which produces a soft, even flow of water for a more natural swimming experience. For more professional workouts, the stream of water can be regulated up to 350m3/hr at 1.8-4.1 m/sec, but even with the higher output and performance, remains extremely quiet. The Turbo Pro is available in two different designs, and as there is no drive shaft or shaft seal, wear is very low.

With a range that is constantly being enhanced, a wide selection of UWE’s countercurrent products are available through experienced specialists Jetstream UK who also carry spares to support the systems (including legacy units back to the 1970s) and distributor SCP.

German manufacturer UWE invented the counter-current system in 1967 and the creation of the company’s JetStream countercurrent systems has revolutionised the traditional swimming pool. By regulating the current, even small pools can become really exciting – and that goes for trained athletes as well. With a wide portfolio of counter-current systems, there’s a solution for a wide range of needs. Sitting at the top of the company’s range is the TriVA counter-current system.

as Kay Cunningham from the Staffordshire based company explained: “We were approached by a family who were looking at installing a pool largely for exercise and sports purposes. They had previously tried out an Endless Pool and although they found the counter-current unit exactly what they wanted, they felt the off-the-shelf pool was too shallow for their purposes and didn’t have quite the finish they were looking for. The solution was to design a bespoke pool for them with the addition of a Fastlane counter current unit.” An existing building, which was being used

as a home office, lent itself perfectly to accommodate a 5m x 2.5m Faslaneequipped pool with a constant depth of 1.6m and adequate deck space. The Fastlane unit from Certikin is the Rolls Royce of counter-current units and is designed for athletes and serious swimmers as well as lesser mortals wishing to get the most out of their swimming pool. Having the benefit of remote control, the speed can be altered, with an optional LED display allowing monitoring of swimmers’ progress and speeds. After completion, Kay said: “The customer was absolutely delighted with how the pool fits into the space and highly rates the Fastlane’s performance.” Swimming Pools Midlands 01543 677476 www.westmids-pools.co.uk
