to reserve the unit. The unit will be
deliverable within eight weeks.
What are the operating costs?
The main motor,
producing the water current, will use 2 to 3.7 Kw/hr, depending on
the selected speed. The fountain pump will use about 60w/hr.
What are the electrical requirements?
Amp, Single phase.
Is a 3-phase connection required? Is the 5hp motor operating
220V connection is required, normally available in any
household. This is then electronically converted to 3-phase for the
motor to operate. This design choice affords large savings
for the owner in the electrical hook-up requirements.
How do I prepare for the installation?
The unit can be placed on any level surface
around the pool with a load capacity
of 200 lbs./sq. ft.. This includes any 4-6 inch
concrete slab or a wooden deck.
Are there mechanical things that require maintenance?
require maintenance. There are no oil or pressure tanks.
All parts, motors and pumps have a lifetime of an electric motor.
How does it work?
is moved by using a unique propulsion system which is
able to push a very large quantity of water into the pool through
an horizontal outlet at the front of the unit. A special distributor is used to even and smoothen the
When the main switch is turned ON, the water
flow starts accelerating until it reaches a minimum safe level.
You can then enter the pool and swim.
The water moves along the length of the pool, from front to rear,
at the speed of the swimmer.
The water enters the unit through
a vertical 12" safety corrugated pipe, preventing swimmers from feeling the
water pull; then goes through a stainless steel mesh, preventing small objects
from entering the system.
current generated in front of the unit allows a swimmer to
continuously swim in place.
Two sensors are used by the
swimmer to speed-up or slow-down the water current.
illuminated switches are accessible by the swimmer, at the base of the water
feature, to start, stop and "freeze" the water current
at the selected speed.
A separate small water pump is
used to generate two water streams, one from the front and one
from the back, which eventually fall into the pool. These can be
started, stopped and adjusted as desired.
How is it different from a Swim SPA?
effect in our product is far superior to that produced by jetted
spas (swim spas).
Jetted spas pump less than one fifth of the water through
high-pressure nozzles (see picture below).
The jets in a Swim Spa:
The water current in a Swim Spa is usually turbulent and narrow.
Water comes towards you at a high pressure, but in a limited
RiverXP instead has a large water outlet (appr. 19" x
5") which allows a large quantity of water to move into the pool,
creating a river-type water current.
