Company details

Wow Company
Our well known “Wave Ball” has been installed in more than 300 swimming pools in over 40 countries around the world. The Wave Ball is “green” as it is a low consumption wave generator that looks like a polyester sphere, floating on water, which generates in a safe and controlled way, artificial waves of stationary type, very reassuring for young people. It increases the number of visitors and is mostly used in aqua parks, public swimming pools, spas, campsites, hotels and resorts and is a delight and a lot of excitement for young and old.
