FLOW VANE / buoy design


As we all know, a whirlpool is such a threat to swimmers, especially who always like to swim toward the deep area that they can be carried away by the water because of not knowing the direction they are in. FLOW VAN is just like a current indicator which can tell you the water condition of the area you are in by indicating the water direction and water speed.
