Endless Pools

I just saw some pix of the 15'x8' "endless" pool where you swim against a
current which is adjustable to let you swim in place.  They seem very
expensive ($15k)compared to small conventional pools ($10k).  I was wondering
if anyone on usenet has used these things and what they think of them.  How
is it for all 4 strokes?  Can two people train at once in one?  How are they
with kids?  Is the 39" depth sufficient for training?

yeah, they are rather pricy, arent they?  i don't have one, but they
sure do look nice.  i would say you definitely cannot get two people in
there at once.  you may want to see their website at
www.endlesspools.com for more info...
