I'm doing a hotel ad and this is a swimming pool installation. Sounds like a cross between a jacuzzi and a wave machine. Term, anybody, please? TIA.

thanks, I did find "countercurrent swimming installation" (the pool sells apart). Water treadmills do exist, but they have some purposes that don't come into the question here, and wildwater channels seem to be for aquatic parks (it's a possibility, but I haven't found indications that this is the case.)

wild water channel


Explanation:
Das wäre allerdings "mit dem Strom", in Freizeitpools aber sehr beliebt. Die "Gegenstrom"-Anlage ist vielleicht eher was für Leistungssportler
