A swim spa is simply a small pool filled with water, right? Well, not exactly. To most people, this compact machine doesn’t look complicated, but it delivers like a powerhouse. That’s why understanding how a quality swim spa is supposed to work can help you choose one that will fit your needs and your expectations. Here’s some helpful information on how the swim spa works, and what it can do for you.
What Exactly is a Swim Spa? At its most basic, a swim spa is a unique machine that allows you to swim laps against a continuous current. This feature is how you can swim endlessly without ever hitting the wall or having to turn around, like you do in a typical pool. Because of its compact size, the swim spa offers at home swimming to people in all kinds of living situations. And, deluxe models offer two unique and separate sides—one for swimming and one for enjoying temperature controlled hydrotherapy.
How Does the Swim Spa Work? When you get in the swim spa, you use the natural resistance of water to swim, exercise, and even play, just like you were in open water, but in less space. Swim spas are powered by hydraulic pumps working along side an underwater motor to keep the current adjusted to the pace you choose. Fully customizable, you can turn the current down low if you’re just getting started and turn it up high for more advanced swimming.
Entertain, Exercise and Fun Swim spa enthusiasts love the fact that their investment is so versatile. Use it as a swimming pool to get your laps in every day. Or, grab the boogie board, turn the current up high and go white water rafting. Of course, exercise is a common use too, with resistance bands and even underwater treadmills keeping your cardiovascular health in tip top shape. With options for indoor use too, you can even use your swim spa year round!

Main article: Rogue Valley § Climate
Climate chart (explanation)
Medford sits in a rain shadow between the Cascade Range and Siskiyou Mountains called the Rogue Valley. As such, most of the rain associated with the Pacific Northwest and Oregon in particular skips Medford, making it drier and sunnier than the Willamette Valley. Medford’s climate is considerably warmer, both in summer and winter, than its latitude would suggest, with a Mediterranean climate (Köppen Csa). Summers are akin to Eastern Oregon, and winters resemble the coast. Here, summer sees an average of 57 afternoons over 90 °F or 32.2 °C and eleven afternoons over 100 °F or 37.8 °C. In August 1981, the high temperature reached over 110 °F or 43.3 °C for four consecutive days, with two days reaching 114 °F or 45.6 °C. Freezing temperatures occur on 69 mornings during an average year, and in some years there may be a day or two where the high stays at or below freezing; the average window for freezing temperatures is October 23 through April 23. The city is located in USDA hardiness zone 8. Medford also experiences temperature inversions in the winter which during its lumber mill days produced fog so thick that visibility could be reduced to less than five feet. These inversions can last for weeks; some suggest this is because the metropolitan area has one of the lowest average wind speeds of all American metropolitan areas. The heavy fog returns nearly every winter with the inversions lowering air quality for several months without relief.[failed verification]
Medford residents do experience snowfall during the winter months; however, due to the weather shadow effect it only averages 3.6 inches or 0.09 metres and melts fairly quickly. In the past, the city has seen seasonal snowfall totals reach 31 inches or 0.79 metres in 1955–1956. That season was also the wettest “rain year” with a total of 33.41 inches (848.6 mm); this immediately followed the driest “rain year” since records started in 1911 from July 1954 to June 1955 when only 9.28 inches (235.7 mm) was recorded. By far the wettest month has been December 1964 with 12.72 inches (323.1 mm); no other month has had more than 10 inches or 254 millimetres. The wettest day on record has been December 2, 1962 with 3.30 inches (83.8 mm).
The lowest recorded temperature in Medford was −10 °F (−23 °C) on December 13, 1919, and the highest recorded temperature was 115 °F (46 °C) on July 20, 1946, and June 28, 2021. There is significantly more diurnal temperature variation in summer than in winter, with the difference between December high and low average temperatures being only 13.2 °F (7.3 °C), but the difference between August high and low average temperatures is 33.9 °F (18.8 °C)

Medford Carnegie Library
Main article: Medford Carnegie Library
The Medford Carnegie Library is a two-story library building located in downtown Medford. It was erected in 1911 thanks to a gift from Andrew Carnegie, but was vacated in 2004 after a new library building was constructed near the Rogue Community College extension campus, also in downtown Medford. Currently, there are plans to use the building for class reunions, public meetings, and for annexing some city offices from the neighboring City Hall building.
Roxy Ann Peak overlooks Medford from the east
Main article: Roxy Ann Peak
One of Medford’s most prominent landmarks, Roxy Ann Peak is a 30-million-year-old mountain located on the east side of the city. Its summit is 3,576 feet (1,090 m) above sea level. It was named for Roxy Ann Bowen, an early settler who lived in its foothills.
A significant area of Roxy Ann Peak (including the summit) is enclosed in Medford’s largest park, a 1,740-acre (2.72 sq mi; 7.0 km2) protected area called Prescott Park. The land was set aside in the 1930s and named in honor of George J. Prescott, a police officer killed in the line of duty in 1933.
The most commonly used trail on Roxy Ann Peak, part of Prescott Park, climbs about 950 feet (290 m) from the beginning of the footpath at the second gate to a height of about 3,547 feet (1,081 m). The trail is about 3.4 miles (5.5 km) one-way, and provides a panoramic view of the Rogue Valley.
