Help with Planning Number and Location of Jets in Exercise Pool/S

New member here needing help with planning a concrete shell 9x16 therapeutic current pool/spa. This pool will be 42" to 48" deep with the current generator (Endless Pool Fastlane) at the top and a bench seat across the bottom and up each side for 12 ft (no side benches 4 ft from the current generator). This pool will serve as an exercise (swim) pool and as a spa/hot tub for me (hip arthritis) and my wife, and also as a spa/hot tub for us and friends. My wife and I like the typical configuration of the commercial type spas with one jet up from the bench at back level. How wide and high should the bench be? We thought about making one side bench higher for shorter people. Good idea? How far apart should one place the spa jets? How many should be placed along the bottom wall and down each side? I would much appreciate any insight, suggestions you can provide. Thanks!!! George

These are exactly the reasons you should reconsider going owner/builder.
