The Lowest Running Costs, Independently Tested and Proven

The cost of running a spa pool can be significant… unless you choose Hot Spring. We offer New Zealand’s most energy efficient spa pools, with running costs as little as $1 a day. This is a luxurious soak that won’t cost the earth.

How can such luxury come so cheap? Our insulation is carefully designed for maximum heat retention. Our covers are fully insulated and precisely engineered to form a perfect seal around the lip of your spa.

Then there’s our suite of technological innovations, from heat induction jets that recycle the warmth generated by the internal machinery, to our SilentFlo 5000 circulation system that keeps your water moving while using the same amount of power as a 40-watt light bulb.

What is a swimming machine?

For a superior swim-in-place experience, look no further than the Fastlane Pools Swim Machine. Its custom-made, hydraulically powered propulsion system creates a laminar current of up to 19,000 litres per minute. Wider than your body and deeper than your stroke, this current offers the most reliable and effective resistance swimming experience on the market, and brings it to your backyard.

Multiple conditioning grills smooth and redirect the water, resulting in a swim current that is free of turbulence. Even at full power, the experience is exactly like that of swimming in the smooth current of open water.

Swimming machine design

Every element of the Fastlane Pools Swim Machine has been crafted to deliver the ultimate swim-in-place experience. There is the hydraulic propulsion system, the carefully designed tub that feeds and directs the flow and the heavily insulated shell and cabinet that ensures your pool is always at the ideal swimming temperature.

An Fastlane Pools Swim Machine can deliver a highly customised swimming experience for everyone in your household; everything from the gentlest hydrotherapy to soothe aching joints and muscles, to a current that would make Michael Phelps blush. Simply adjust the current using the inbuilt control panel and get swimming!

Best swimming machine placement

Where should you place your swimming machine? Unlike a traditional swimming pool, an Fastlane Pools swim spa is self-contained and fully portable, which means you'll enjoy far greater flexibility in terms of placement. All you need is to identify the areas of your yard that have enough space, that will offer a level and stable base, and that grant access to the necessary water, power and drainage to fill, run and maintain your swim spa.

The most common configuration is an above-ground outdoor spa, but you can also install these machines as indoor spas or inground spas. Get in touch with your local dealer to learn more about the installation options for your backyard.

What should I look for when buying a swimming machine?

Quality should be your primary focus when shopping for a swimming machine. Buying from an established brand, especially if it has a local dealership, can ensure that you always have access to the support you need to maximise the value and enjoyment you get from your swim spa. Other considerations include:

Size and seating

If you plan on entertaining, what’s the largest number of people you might expect to enjoy your swim spa at any one time?

Swim spas are compact, but where do you have space, and access to power, water and drainage? Do you want an inground, above-ground, indoor or outdoor swim spa?

Consider the main reason for your swimming machine purchase, whether fitness, health and wellness, rest and relaxation, or quality time with loved ones.

When you invest in quality, your swimming machine can pay itself back over time through energy efficiency, longevity and an incredible swimming and soaking experience.
