I ended up getting a 14X 7 endlesss pool. I had it built up so the water is 53-55 inches. The installer was amazing - he was able to make a slope out of cement so I could get that 2" of extra water depth in one end. It has 4 jets and, of course, the "fastlane" which makes you feel like you are swimming in a soft river current and it keeps you in place. I heat it up to 92. It is dreamy. So glad I did it. The installer is Aquatic Horizons from NewPort Richey, FL. He travels all over the country instlling pools. Best thing I ever did for myself.

My swimming pool has swim jets and I added them to benefit my disabled son so I know where you are coming from. Mine are in a trianglar design with one jet below the other two, this jet helps with his buoyance, this design may also be something worth considering for yourself.

thanksFootie - I will consider jets; however I'm going to try to find a reasonable "propeller" or "paddle wheel" swim spa first. Does your son swim against the jets?

You can check out HydroWorx therapy pools. They have all different sizes of pools and the option for a deep well that is 7 feet deep. The other great thing about HydroWorx pools is that they come standard with a 3x5 intergraded treadmill in the pool along with swim spa jets and massage therapy hoses. They are great pools with all different sizes and styles to fit any needs. www.hydroworx.com

thank you Newbie. I will check them out. I've heard that swimming against jets as opposed to paddle wheel/propeller is "turbulent" which would not be good for me - I am pretty disabled in a lot of places, with weak arms and shoulders from a badly healed shoulder operation.
