Exercise Pools for Your Home or Garden

 

Swim at home

If you love the idea of being able to take a daily swim as part of your exercise regime, a home exercise pool could provide you with a perfect solution. Exercise pools are compact, easy to install, have low running costs and can provide you and your family with hours of healthy, fun exercise.

You don’t need a large area to be able to accommodate an exercise pool as they are usually small pools with a counter current unit fitted to generate a current for you to swim against. Exercise pools with a counter current unit essentially enable you to swim in the same place. I’ve seen them described or likened to an aquatic treadmill. They can be installed indoors or outdoors and there are several exercise pool packages on the market – see here.

If you don’t want an exercise pool package you can opt for a bespoke exercise pool and have a pool build to meet your exact requirements – see bespoke options here. Whatever pool you choose you also have a choice of counter current units. These can be generally divided into two categories – ‘over the wall’ or wall hung or ‘through the wall’ units. Continue reading

Hot tubs and the hosepipe ban

Hot tubs and the hosepipe ban
Hot tubs are exempt from the hosepipe ban.

As we endure one of the wettest spells for years, many areas of the UK are under a Temporary Water Use ban, commonly referred to as the hosepipe ban. Panache Pools are based in Northamptonshire, one of the areas affected by the restrictions. As a consequence, all our local customers are also affected by the ban. We have been pushing the water authorities and our trade associations for some clarification on the terms of the ban, particularly in regard to hot tubs. Our director, Mark Jackson has been interviewed on local television and radio about the hosepipe ban and how it’s affecting pool and hot tub owners.

Unfortunately, there has been conflicting messages being issued or reported that has resulted in some confusion. Some authorities were stating that hot tubs were included in the ban and couldn’t be filled or topped up with a hosepipe. However, we have since received clarification that hot tubs never were included in the ban and are therefore exempt. You can fill or top up your hot tub using a hosepipe. We are letting our customers know that they can use their hot tubs as normal. Continue reading
