If you’re new to swim spas, you may be curious about what they are. Unlike a traditional swimming pool, swim spas take a fraction of the space, provide a continuous current, and can be used all year round. They’re also versatile and provide relaxation just as a hot tub does! 

The Benefits of Swim Spas

In addition to their many features, swim spas offer a variety of benefits, such as:

    • Lower Cost: in comparison to an inground pool, swim spas are far more affordable. Not only do they cost less upfront, but they also cost less to run since they’re much smaller. 
    • Easier Installation: swim spas are mobile, just like a hot tub. So not only are they easier to install than an inground pool, but you can take your swim spa with you if you ever move to a different home. You might also deal with fewer landscaping issues, permits, and labor when it comes to having your swim spa installed.
    • Less Maintenance: not only does a swim spa’s smaller size make it easier to maintain, but many swim spas have sophisticated filtration systems that take care of much of the maintenance for you. 
  • Year-Round Use: swim spas are a game changer for people living in cooler climates where harsh winters limit their swimming season. Swim spas come equipped with temperature controls allowing you to adjust the temperature so you can stick to your swimming routine no matter what time of year it is!
  • Smaller Size: since swim spas are smaller in size compared to pools, you can find a space for it more easily in your backyard.
  • Health Benefits: utilizing the natural resistance and buoyancy of water, you can get the dynamic, low-impact workouts you need for a healthier you. Plus, the effects of hydrotherapy alone are impressive.
