When you think of a hot tub, you probably imagine three or four people sitting closely together in a small spa, and perhaps there's a larger swimming pool nearby. But did you know that it's now possible to get a hot tub swim spa which essentially combines the best of both a hot tub and a swimming pool? If you are in the market for a new hot tub (or a new swimming pool), here's why you might want to first look at hot tub swim spas before you make your final decision.
Exercise in Total Comfort
If you want to start doing laps in the morning, that's great news. A regular swim can help you lose weight or stay healthy. But if your swimming pool is not heated, you might have a rough experience if the temperature is still somewhat low early in the morning when you are trying to swim. This won't be the case with a swim spa. A swim spa is obviously going to be heated, and it should be just big enough for you to get in a good workout, doing laps back and forth across the spa. You obviously won't be able to do laps in a normal size spa, but a swim spa can give you the extra space of a pool environment while still keeping you super comfortable.
A Swim Spa is Perfect If You Have Limited Space
You really want a swimming pool in your backyard, but perhaps you just don't have the space or the yard is not flat at all. If you are cramped for space or have a backyard that is not ideal for putting in an in-ground swimming pool without spending a lot of money on moving dirt around to even things out, a swim spa could be your solution. Your new hot tub will be large enough for you to have a pool like experience but in a much smaller area than what it would take to put in an entire in-ground pool.
Your New "Swimming Pool" is Technically Portable
A hot tub swim spa is above ground and it's possible to move it around if needed. It will likely stay in the same spot while at your main home, but what if you want to go up to your family's cabin for the weekend? Your hot tub swim spa can be loaded onto a trailer and towed up to your cabin or any other location so you can enjoy it wherever you go.
