Top five reasons to choose a swim spa over a swimming pool

So many people love to swim, and there’s certainly plenty of evidence that regular swimming is good for you. How do you get the benefit of swimming year round at home in an economic way? The answer: a swim spa.

There are a number of reasons people choose to install swim spas over a swimming pool today. We offer up the top reasons for you here:

  1. Expense. This is the biggest driver today making swim spas a good answer for those who want to swim at home. While a swimming pool today could cost you $25k-$50k to have constructed, a swim spa can often be purchased and installed starting at around $14k.
  2. Ease of installation. While a swimming pool can take anywhere from 3-6 months to plan and have constructed, a swim spa can usually be installed in as little as three weeks.
  3. Convenience. The more accessible a vessel where you can swim daily is, the more likely you are to use it every day and get the great health benefits swimming affords. This is especially true in climates that aren’t warm year round, where community pools may close up to 6 or 7 months a year.
  4. Versatility. A swim spa allows you to get the health benefits of swimming, as well as the massage action from jets normally reserved for hot tubs. You can soak and enjoy the massage when needed after a hard day, a marathon, daily run, or cycling.
  5. After install costs. While maintaining a swimming pool could involve routine visits from a pool service, a swim spa is usually much easier to care for, given it’s a smaller body of water in a portable unit. Energy and water expense will also be minimized. Many swim spas can be sanitized without high amounts of chlorine and other water care products as well, letting you swim in water that’s healthier, and at considerable reduction in money laid out for chemicals.
