Endless Pools Fastlane
Section 1 GENERAL OVERVIEW OF AN ENDLESS POOL FASTLANE
The Fastlane® swimming machine by Endless Pools, Inc. is a hydraulically-powered system that creates a
smooth, adjustable-speed swim current in a conventional pool. The Fastlane has been fabricated with the
finest, most durable materials and designed to meet the most stringent safety standards including VGB
2008. The swim current produced is wider than your body and deeper than your stroke — far superior to
currents created by one or more jets. Two 3/8″ hydraulic hoses carrying a non-food grade, biodegradable
vegetable oil run between the hydraulic Power Unit and the Fastlane Swim Unit, thus eliminating the need
for electricity poolside. When pumped at high pressure, this hydraulic fluid creates a swim current by turning the shaft of a submerged stainless steel hydraulic motor in the Fastlane Swim Unit, which in turn rotates
a 16″ diameter propeller. The Power Unit is activated using a 3-button radio frequency remote control that
can turn the unit on and off and adjust the speed. It is best if the Power Unit is within 25′ of the Swim Unit
to minimize pressure loss. An optional 6″ LED swim pace display is available to monitor your speed. Also,
customers often place our swim mirror on the bottom of the pool to observe their swim stroke.
Note: all of the 316L stainless steel screws provided for the assembly of this unit should be tightened to
the recommended 25 in-lbs of torque.
= Wall Mount Fastlane = Deck Mount Fastlane
The Fastlane can be mounted one of two ways:
The Wall Mount Fastlane fastens to the wall of the pool using the bracket provided. Two 1″ polyethylene
pipes (or 1 1/2″ PVC pipe) which serve as conduits for the hydraulic hoses run under the pool deck to a remotely located, 5-horsepower, hydraulic Power Unit, as shown in Figure 1.1.
The Fastlane produces a smooth even swim current in any pool. Adjustable from zero up to a 1:10 hundred yard pace
(1:16/100 meters) the Fastlane allows you to swim in place for as long as you like. Converts any small pool into a perfect
place for fitness swimming.
HOW THE FASTLANE WORKS
The system has two parts: a remotely located Hydraulic
Power Unit that powers the swim current and the
Swim Unit that mounts poolside. These components are
connected by two hydraulic hoses designed to keep
electricity away from the water.
The poolside Swim Unit includes a special sealed stainless
steel hydraulic motor that turns our custom-designed
16” propeller. An innovative channeling system
straightens and smoothes the swim current.
The motor is powered by hydraulic fluid
that is carried through 1/2” diameter
hoses from the Power Unit to
the Swim Unit. Water enters
the bottom of the Fastlane
from all directions through
a perforated stainless steel
(type 316L) intake grill.
The rugged 5 horsepower
Power Unit is typically
located with your other pool
equipment, keeping any electricity
away from the pool. The remote Hydraulic
Power Unit contains 5 gallons of biodegradable
vegetable-based hydraulic fluid that is pumped to the Swim Unit.
By varying the flow of oil you change the speed of the propeller
and thus the swim current.
USING YOUR FASTLANE
Learning to use your Fastlane takes
only seconds. Turn the Fastlane on
by pressing the On/Off button on your
remote control. Position yourself on the
wall opposite the Swim Unit so that you
can swim into the current. While it
is easy to look up and center yourself
on the current, we recommend our
optional floor mirror. Placed on
your pool bottom, the mirror will
help center you in the current as
well as provide valuable feedback on
When changing the speed with the Slower and
Faster buttons on your remote control, wait a few
seconds for the current to adjust. Set the water speed at
a comfortable level for your needs. Remember, since you
never stop and turn at a wall, you will tire 20% to 30% faster
than when swimming laps.
To stop swimming, simply swim out of the current. Press the On/
Off button on your remote control to turn off the Power Unit.
Restart whenever you want by pressing the On/Off button. The
current will return to the last speed programmed into the remote.
In addition, the Fastlane has a built-in safety timer that shuts the
current off after 30 minutes.
A Fastlane is not a toy. It is a serious swimming machine intended for fitness swimming.
It should never be used by children without proper adult supervision.
