Lap pool in yard?

Lap pool in yard?

I've read that people here feel that a 50 foot pool is not sufficient in length
to get a good lap in.  I am a swimmer for pleasure, not sport.  It is the only
way I can get aerobic work outs and not have incredible pain in my joints (osteo
arthritis).  So, I run in the pool and swim for an hour at a leisurely
pace...with intermittent sprints throughout the swim.  So my question is not so
much about the length since 50 feet is all I can afford, but what sort of pool
equipment should we avoid, what is good and what is great equipment.  Filters,
pumps, vacuum's, chlorinators, heaters, etc...
