Have you ever heard of a swim spa? They are the fastest rising category in the pool and hot tub industry and are becoming more popular each day. Continue reading to learn more about swim spas and the many benefits they offer!

What Is A Swim Spa?

Essentially, a swim spa is a cross between a pool and a hot tub. They are larger than a hot tub but smaller than a pool, ranging from about 12-19 feet long and 7-9 feet wide. Swim spas were designed to work as a fitness pool, as they provide a current for people to swim against for a great exercise. The spa is the perfect option for those who don’t have enough space in their backyard for a full-size pool but want to be able to exercise in water. Also, swim spas can be installed above ground or below, so they can be designed to fit in with any landscape design. While the main use of a swim spa is to swim in place, some models also include hot tub style jetted therapy seats for relaxation.

Heated Swim Spa Extends Swimming Season

While pool owners often open their pool in May and then close it around September, a heated swim spa extends the swimming season much longer. Heated pools are expensive, so if you’re an active swimmer and want a longer swim season, a swim spa may be the perfect addition to your home. The spa is compact and has increased insulation, which allows owners to heat the spa at a fraction of the cost of a pool.

Less Maintenance

As just mentioned, swim spas are more affordable to run compared to pools, but they are also easier to maintain. While pool maintenance doesn’t have to be time-consuming, swim spas only need a few minutes of maintenance due to their compact size. Pools are a great option for families who need a larger space to enjoy the water, but if you are more interested in using a pool for fitness purposes, a swim spa is your best option!
