Do you have any questions about our products?

Why have your own pool?

Because you have your own personal fitness and wellness centre right on your doorstep. Exercise in the water not only has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system, but it is also good for back health and easy on the joints. And a dip in the pool feels like a short holiday at home – without any traffic jams or travel stress.

Why a turbine swimming system from BINDER?

With our turbine-driven counterflow systems, any pool can be transformed into a place where the whole family can experience fun and pleasure at the touch of a button. The flow rate can be adjusted to suit individual requirements – whether it’s endurance swimming, wellness, health training or fun splashing around: HydroStar and EasyStar make it all much more fun. And with the BINDER24 app, you can create your own personal training plan.

What is the difference to other counter-current systems?

Conventional systems use a pump that not only requires a lot of installation space, but also a high-voltage connection and regular maintenance. Our turbine swimming systems are powered by an energy-efficient 24V motor and are compact in design, and the turbine is maintenance-free. In addition, the generated current is wide and powerful. It is comparable to that of a river and keeps the swimmer balanced so that they can concentrate fully on their technique. Our systems also produce no splashing water, operate at low noise and vibration levels, and consume significantly less energy than comparable devices.

What shape and size should the pool be?

Our turbine swimming systems are suitable for swimming pools of all types and sizes. HydroStar and EasyStar can even be easily installed in swimming ponds and natural pools thanks to their compact dimensions. To be able to swim comfortably, the minimum size for a pool with a fixed HydroStar system should not be less than 4.5 m x 2.5 m. For pools with the EasyStar retrofit system, we recommend a size of 5 m x 2.5 m. This means that even owners of small plots can enjoy the near-natural current of our turbine swimming systems.

How long does it take to install the systems?

The installation of HydroStar and EasyStar does not take much time. Thanks to the compact design, pool builders only need around three hours for the installation. EasyStar is even faster: our retrofit system is simply hung over the edge of the pool and screwed to it. After a few simple steps, the swimming fun can begin.

What do users say about our turbine swimming systems?


HydroStar and EasyStar are very popular with young and old alike. For example, 9-year-old Mathilda thinks splashing around in the system’s current is super cool, and her friend Linn agrees: it’s great fun!

Professional swimmer

Even professional swimmers are enthusiastic about the current of our turbine-driven counterflow systems: “It’s like swimming in open-water,” enthuses triathlete Sabine Lischka. “The current simulates the laminar flow that is generated in a triathlon by the foot movements of the swimmer in front of me.”


Coach Matthias Knossalla, who has coached many triathletes, agrees: “The facilities are perfect for aerobic exercise.” And Paralympics winner and physiotherapist Elena Semechin (née Krawzow) knows yet another advantage of HydroStar and EasyStar: “They are ideal for back training because of their even current.”

Medical doctor

General practitioner Dr Wolfgang Kurbjuhn from Hamelin emphasises that swimming protects against cardiovascular diseases. The turbine swimming systems from BINDER are the ideal training equipment for him: “You can avoid over- or under-training by adjusting the load limits to best suit you.”
