West Midlands Swimming Pools - Fastlane

What do you do when space is limited but you love swimming and want a pool for exercising? You call in Certikin and install a serious bit of kit called the Fastlane swimming machine.

Kay Cunningham from Staffordshire based, West Midlands Swimming Pools takes up the story: “We were approached by a family who were looking at installing a pool largely for exercise and sports purposes. They had previously tried out an Endless Pool and although they found the counter current unit exactly what they wanted, they felt the off-the-shelf pool was too shallow for their purposes and didn’t have quite the finish they were looking for.  The solution was to design a bespoke pool for them with the addition of a Fastlane counter current unit.

The Fastlane unit from Certikin is the Rolls Royce of counter current units and is designed for athletes and serious swimmers as well as lesser mortals wishing to get the most out of their swimming pool. Having the benefit of remote control, the speed can be altered, with an optional LED display allowing monitoring of swimmers progress and speeds. There is also the option of the Fit@Home app, available for both iOS and Android devices., which gives the ability to monitor, tailor and repeat training programmes.

“The existing building, which was being used as a home office, lent itself perfectly to accommodate a 5m x 2.5m pool with a constant depth of 1.6m and adequate deck space,” adds Kay. “We took the concrete floor up and a hole was excavated. Taking advice from Certikin on the asymmetrical requirements of steps into the pool, we came up with the featured design, which not only works in accommodating the Fastlane counter current unit but also provides a practical way of entering the pool without encroaching too much into the 5m pool length.”

Kay says: “The customer was absolutely delighted with how the pool fits into the space and highly rates the Fastlane’s performance.”
Featuring the following Certikin equipment, the pool is very much stamped with the company’s hallmark:

* Flow fittings including skimmer, 2 inlets, 2 low level suction points.

* Certikin pool lighting

* Elecro 30kW titanium heat exchanger linked to gas boiler, which also provides warm air heating via Monitair 75 unit with LPHW.

* 0.75hp Swimflo pump and 18” high rate sand filter

* Insulated blockwork and render construction with 1.5mm onsite Persia blue mosaic lining.
