How do wave pools work, what types of energy do they use?

    It depends on the type of wave pool. Small wave pools use a high-speed fan to send a burst of air through a shaft. A hydrolic pump opens and shuts a butterfly hatch in the shaft which allows for periodic bursts of pressurized air to blow out of the shaft and into the water, thus creating ripples. In larger wave-pools, a water pump is used to dump large quantities of water in the deep end of the pool, creating a wave that moves from the deep end to the shallow end. The excess water is then collected into a return canal and returned to the pump.

    All wave pools are powered by some form of electric machinery. The type of energy used depends upon what power source the machinery is hooked up to.
