Looking for some thoughts on an idea to help me with my triathlon training.
I'm considering building a custom swim spa in my basement since a traditional swim spa is a) very expensive and b) too big for my application.
My idea was to build a swim spa utilizing block walls and a badu swim jet to create essentially a swimming treadmill. With my busy schedule but big triathlon goal for Ironman Wisconsin in 2016, I need to shave any time like driving to gyms and pools so that I can meet my responsibility as a father and husband.
I'm thinking roughly 8'x6'x4' tall, properly finished with a bench or two that can be used as a hot tub if need be. The outside would be finished with tile or some other decorative finish to tie in that room.
I'm more concerned about the guts and skeleton of this idea vs the finishes to see if it's a feasible project.
Much thanks in advance
