5.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected, August 9, 2009
This review is from: iPool Above Ground Exercise Swimming Pool (Sports)
I have to admit that I was a little skeptical of this at first, but it has turned out to be GREAT. We had looked in to all sorts of other lap pool options, and there was really nothing that came close price wise- We'd have to spend $12k more to get pretty much anything. So, We gave it a shot- And I am glad that we did.

It was relatively easy to set up, though you DO have to make sure that you have a nice, VERY level spot to set it up on. I had to do a little excavating in my yard to get the area totally flat. It went together easily enough, though the instructions were a bit difficult. We filled it with water, and hopped in!

I didn't know how I would like 'resistance swimming' compared to lap swimming. It feels a little different- But it is still a great workout. Once you get used to swimming in place, though, it's not too bad. You'll have to play with the placement of the resistance bands a little, but once you get them adjusted to your swimming style, you don't need to mess with them again. I am a pretty strong swimmer, But once I got the bands in the right place, I had no problems.

I keep my water Chlorinated like any other pool, and it stays nice and clear. Ours is outside, and stays plenty warm just from the sun, so I haven't needed the heater. I MIGHT be moving it in to the basement for the winter, and I'll probably need a heater if I do. We've already got 220v there, so it won't be a big expense.

We only had one problem- The filter that came with it was defective, but a quick call to FitMax resolved that issue, they had another one off to us right away. The customer service is GREAT- and there is actually a live person on the other end of the line!
