Fast Lane

The fast lane provides a water stream to swim against meaning that you can swim continuously without the need to turn. The speed of the water is easily adjusted once you are in the pool making it is very user friendly. While it is intended for serious swimmers and those who are trying to improve their fitness all competent swimmers will enjoy the ‘challenge of the machine’.
