If you’re thinking about adding a luxurious swimming pool to your home, and haven’t considered the alternatives, why not? Families, single professionals, even retirees are investing in swim spas over traditional swimming pools.
Here are three major differences between a swim spa and a pool.
Size, Cost and Availability A swim spa is far smaller than a typical pool – even the above ground type. For homeowners with limited or restricted space, this one difference means swimming at home can be a reality. Some swim spa models or compact enough to place indoors, or on an enclosed porch for year-round use, despite the weather. Installing a pool can be costly, and requires significant money out-of-pocket to care for and maintain. With less water to worry about, installing, cleaning and even maintaining a swim spa is faster and less expensive than the average pool.
Customizable Current and Continuous Lap Swimming Swimming is easy in both a swimming pool and a swim spa. But, here’s the main difference: you can’t customize a current in a swimming pool, and you will hi the wall at the end of each lap. With a swim spa, you never need to turn around. A continuous current allows for lap swimming is less space, without the inconvenience or distraction of having to be aware of the wall. For athletes looking to maximize performance, a customizable current is a great way to challenge the body during cardiovascular conditioning.
A Swim Spa Can Double as a Hot Tub The most exciting difference between the swim spa and the pool is simple. Many swim spa models can double as a hot tub. With a split option, the best swim spas offer hydrotherapy and powerful jet massage at one end, and a nonstop current at the other. Ownership brings two lavish experiences in one—an exciting lap pool and a soothing hot tub spa in one incredible machine.
