Hydrotherapy is a therapeutic whole-body treatment that involves moving and exercising in water – physiotherapy in a pool. Hydrotherapy pools differ from ordinary pools whereby the temperature, pressure and movement of water is controlled and changed according to who’s using the pool. Being immersed, buoyant or massaged in water can help relieve many symptoms in a variety of different ways and hydrotherapy can help with many physical and emotional complaints including:
- Poor circulation
- Muscle pain and inflammation
- Hip or other joint replacements (before and after the operations)
- Muscle or ligament injuries; broken limbs
- Back pain
- Rheumatic pain and arthritis
- Anxiety and stress
Our Polypool systems combined with either a tiled finish or welded liner is the ideal solution for any hydrotherapy pool with its heat retaining properties and can be installed in either a domestic or commercial pool environment.
Whether you are a professional swimmer or looking to enjoy some exercise at home a counter current unit is the perfect solution and we have a range of units to cater for all requirements.
Swimming has long been recognised as one of the most effective forms of exercise. Whether it is part of a daily training programme or for gentle exercise a counter current unit in an exercise pool can be tailored to give you the ideal swimming environment.
The counter current unit, which can be easily fitted to most in-ground pools, produces a resistant current in the water for you to swim against without actually going anywhere! Just like a water treadmill – so with limited space you can swim for miles in the same spot!
Our units can either be fitted into an existing pool or can be built into a Polypool panel during construction. An exercise pool can provide the benefits and fun of a full size swimming pool at a fraction of the cost.
A small exercise pool can either be installed into an existing space, like a garage or existing spare room, or can be housed in a purpose built pool house or enclosure allowing you to exercise all year round regardless of the weather. With a smaller pool the heating and maintenance costs are also greatly reduced and are comparable to running a hot tub.
Our exercise pools are simple to install, easy to maintain and cost effective to run.
If you are limited for space and access, our Polypool kits fitted with a counter current unit are the ideal way to create your own fitness facility.
Whilst site access may be a problem with other pools the Polypool components can all fit through a standard doorway. So suddenly you can have your own swimming pool in places you previously thought were inaccessible. Pool installers have installed countless Polypool pools in such areas including basements, cellars and even in top floor penthouses.

Swimming is recognised as one of the most effective forms of exercise. Whether it’s as part of your daily fitness programme or for gentle rehabilitation following injury, our pools provide an ideal environment for exercise where space is limited.
By swimming into a flowing current of water, you can exercise within a smaller pool area. The resistance of the water flowing towards you allows you to swim continuously without being limited to the length of the pool.
