After a long, bed-ridden, recuperation from surgery, I need to get back in shape.Contemplating putting in a BaduStream II (swim system), by Speck Pumps.
Has anyone tried swimming against this type of jet system. I wanted to put in a current system in my swim spa, but too expensive. This system is about $4,500 versus the "riverlike" current system that runs about $9,000.
Thanks for your imput. I need to make a decision very soon.

I getting ready to test out an Endless Pool and possibly one of George's RiverPools. I have swum in a "jet current" type of pool, and it was horrible. The bubbles made it un-swimmable for me. You could not see anything. Maybe the newer ones are better, since it was several years ago. Take a test swim somewhere in both types. I think the people that review these things are not competitive swimmers so you really can't trust them.

Thanks for your response. I am having difficulty finding a pool with the "new" jet systems. Will keep trying.
