Swim spas are ideal for those looking for aquatic exercise or hydrotherapy at home. Smaller than a pool yet larger than a hot tub, swim spas offer benefits from both.

Here are some of the benefits of having a swim spa:

All-Weather

Swim spas can be used in all seasons. The control panel allows you to adjust the temperature accordingly, making it usable year-round.

Swim spas can be placed indoors, but you’ll want to place it in a water-friendly area. The warm water can evaporate fairly quickly and create damp environments that may cause mold or mildew to grow. To prevent this, make sure to wipe away any condensation on the walls and keep the floor around your spa dry.

You’ll still want to cover your swim spa when it’s not in use. This will help keep it clean, insulated, and free of any unwanted visitors.

Combine Hot Tub and Pool Benefits

The open-concept tank in a swim spa allows for the benefits of a regular pool at your own, private convenience. The current is powerful enough to swim or walk against, eliminating the need to swim from one end to the other.

Swim spas are often equipped with features similar to hot tubs, like illumination, jets, and comfortable seating. This allows you to enjoy the experience of a hot tub and a pool simultaneously.

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is common for people who are recovering from an injury. It promotes healing, blood circulation, and muscle strength through features like temperature and buoyancy.

It can also be used for people who suffer from joint pain, muscle aches, arthritis, and other conditions. Hydrotherapy can help to improve flexibility and mobility for people who suffer from these conditions.

Health Benefits

Using a swim spa on a regular basis can lead to many benefits, including:

  • Improved sleep
  • Reduced stress
  • Weight loss or weight management
  • Reduced injury recovery time
  • Soothing joint pain

The water allows for low-impact exercise because it helps lift the weight of your body. It will also keep you from feeling fatigued, sweaty, or achy afterward.

Low Maintenance

Compared to regular pools, swim spas take far less time to maintain. Standard pools can take hours to filter and clean, whereas swim spas can take as little as 45 minutes to filter.

If you keep your swim spa covered, it will minimize the amount of time you spend on maintenance by keeping water warm and free of debris.
