Fitness systems can fit in almost any space. We have installed these products in conservatories, outbuildings, on patios and in/on decking. We recommend a site visit so our swim spa expert can help you choose a great place for your aquatic fitness system and assess access.
Important : Site selection and preparation are your responsibility. Carefully read these instructions and consult us if you have any questions.
You probably have a spot picked out for your new system, whether it's indoors or outdoors, on a patio or on a deck. Just make sure you check the following:
It may be necessary to remove a gate, part of a fence, or other movable obstructions in order to move the system to its installation site. Your choide of system will determine what equipment is necessary to move your Swim Spa system to its final location. A roll back truck with a tilt bed is a good option if your site can be accessed by an across road vehicle. When a small reach is needed for the final placement of your system, a boom truck is ideal.
A telehandler vehicle can off load, traverse property and place your system in a more challenging situation or terrain. When access to your site is limited a crane may be used to lift your system over obstructions for precise placement. We will supervise the crane delivery and complete the system installation. NOTE : If your system delivery requires the use of a crane, you may be required to pay for its services at the completion of the delivery.
A re-inforced concrete pad at least six inches thick or a deck that is able to withstand more than 250lbs. per square foot is required for the SWIMCROSS Excercise System. As a homeowner, it is your responsibility to provide a suitable, level foundation for your system. Keep in mind that most delivery crews are not equipped to level and prepare system sites.
If you are interested in having a concrete slab, your ENDLESS POOLS dealer should be able to suggest a qualified, licensed contractor.
NOTE: In order for the system to operate properly and the internal plumbing to drain completely, you must ensure that the system is level.
To ensure you will have an opportunity to use your system soon after delivery, it is very important that the required electrical service has been installed. Unless otherwise stipulated by your dealer, THIS IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
IMPORTANT: All electrical circuits must be installed by a qualified, licensed electrician. All models require a 60 amp, single phase, 230 volt circuit breaker in the main electrical service panel. All SWIMCROSS Excercise System must be wired in accordance with applicable local and national electrical codes, all electrical work must be done by a licensed electrician.
NOTE: Watkins Manufacturing Corporation REQUIRES THE USE OF A SUBPANEL TO SUPPLY POWER AND PROTECT THE SYSTEM. A licensed electrician should install a four-wire electrical service (two line voltages, one neutral, one ground) from the main electrical service panel to the subpanel, and from the sub-panel to the system. The grounding conductor must be at least #6 AWG. Your electrician should mount the subpanel in the vicinity of the system but it should not be closer than five (5) feet from the system water edge (NEC 680-38 to 41-A-3).
