Swim spa river jets are weak

Recommended Posts

Hello!   My new Catalina swim was finally delivered and set up this week!  But that's all I got - no instructions or guidance.   The swim spa section has 3 "river jet" zones at the end that provide the swim resistance  but they are not pushing out enough water volume to swim against and we just out-swim the tub.  I changed every diverted to every possible combination with little improvement.    Is there a valve or something I am just not seeing?   All jets and pumps are on.  Thanks  for any help!

Most "swim spas" do not put out enough flow for a good paced swimmer. Leisurely breaststroke is about it if you're a lap swimmer. For a trainer you need an endless pool, which has you swimming behind a hydraulically driven boat propeller that moves the entire volume of the tub.

Some swim spas have clip points for a swim harness on either side or the bottom, not sure on yours.
