The user-friendly interference will be able to provide you with an easy operation of the machine. The instructions manual can be found in the package or the manufacturer’s website. Due to the fact that this product functions underwater, you do not need any additional space on land. There are many design options you can choose from. You can install it permanently or just for the hot seasons. For the machine to function, you will have to plug it into a power supply.

Water Flow

Now that we have gotten the technical stuff out of the way, it’s time to talk about the impressive stuff that puts this product above its competitors. We can start by stating that this item has the best flow that can be provided by such machine. The company has designed it with the latest system. You will be able to bring nature inside your own pool. This, in turn, will be able to carry your body without splashing. Just the same a river would.

Due to the fact that there isn’t a pump involved, you will not feel like you have to struggle to keep your body above water. When you try the other models, you will notice that a powerful jet is putting unnecessary pressure on your shoulders and head. You will not be able to concentrate or swim like you should. Above all, it’s very dangerous too.

  • Wide water flow
  • No splashing water
  • Pump-operated counter flow
  • Flow rate of 160 m³/h to 1200 m³/h.

This will never happen with this machine. As mentioned, you will be able to choose from 8 different speeds. The strongest one requires the pool to be bigger in length as it can be dangerous in smaller ones. Thus, we advise that you use it only if you have an in-ground pool.


The cover plate has been designed with heavy-duty stainless steel. A lot of power is generated through a standard plug at an efficient energy cost. This means that you will be able to leave it functioning for the whole day, without seeing too much of a difference with your energy bill.

  • Velocity turbine outlet can generate a power of 2,7 m/s
  • Impeller can reach a maximum sped of 2400 rpm
  • Piezo switch located on the edge of the pool
  • One-touch buttons

As mentioned, you can control the machine through the wireless remote control. This device is waterproof and you will be able to maneuver it with ease whilst being inside of the pool. With the remote control, you can control the speeds, turn it on/off and emergency stop.

All of the functions are one-touch buttons which means that it’s very easy to use. It’s user-friendly so children can manage it with ease as well. Of course, you must supervise children at all times. Because the company cares about maximizing safety, they have created a binder. This is another device that can control the machine. It’s only for off-site use so do not submerge it under water as it will stop functioning.
