Abstract

Embodiments of the invention provide a set wave system and method for use with a pool containing water up to a water level. The set wave system can include a chamber positioned lower than the water level. The chamber can include an outlet for ejecting water from the chamber into the pool. The set wave system can include an air injector positioned in the chamber upstream of the outlet. The air injector can introduce air into the chamber causing water to move out of the outlet and into the pool to form a wave.

Independent Claims | See all claims (40)

  1. 1. A set wave system for use with a pool containing water at a water level, the set wave system comprising: a chamber positioned lower than the water level, the chamber including an outlet for ejecting water from the chamber into the pool; and an air injector positioned in the chamber upstream of the outlet, the air injector introducing air into the chamber causing water to move out of the outlet and into the pool to form a wave.
  2. 23. A method of generating waves in a pool, the method comprising: at least partially filling a chamber with water; injecting compressed air into the chamber; pushing water through an outlet in the chamber with the compressed air; adding ambient air into the chamber as the water exits the outlet; and forming a wave as the water exits the outlet and enters the pool.
  3. 27. A method of generating waves in a pool, the method comprising: at least partially filling a chamber with water; opening a compressed air control valve to inject compressed air into the chamber; pushing water through an outlet of the chamber with the compressed air in order to create a wave in the pool; opening an air inlet check valve to inject ambient air into the chamber to relieve a vacuum in the chamber; closing the air inlet check valve; and closing the compressed air control valve.
  4. 31. A wing for use with a wave generation system, the wing comprising: a main body that can be positioned adjacent to an outlet of the wave generation system, the main body being configured to enhance a shape of the wave formed as water exits the outlet.
