What Is A Swim Spa?

Do you think you want a swimming pool, but are worried about the cost and about having to give up your entire yard for a swimming pool? If that’s the case, talk with the swimming pool contractors at Imperial Pools as they are Urbana Swim Spa dealers and they can explain the benefits of these beautiful, water-filled structures.

What is a swim spa? It is a device that allows you to swim “against” the current in your swim spa structure. A swim spa is usually the size of a lap pool (that means it doesn’t take up much space in your backyard, either). With a swim spa, you don’t have to swim laps, you simply swim into the current from the jets. It’s a great way to get a workout.

Urbana Swim Spas offer myriad options for both size and style and that makes these backyard structures ideal for many uses and families of every size. If you want a swim spa for pure exercise reasons only, choose a smaller, slimmer model. If you have children who will be using the structure, you may want to consider a larger model – remember you don’t always have to have the jets on. The swim spa can be used as a traditional pool when you want to.What is a swim spa

Swim spas can sit on a pool deck or can be stand alone self-contained units that you can place in your yard. They may be called portable, but they are not easy to simply pick up and move so you will want to put thought into where you will be placing the spa before you commit to it.

A swim spa can either be heated – think hot tub – or unheated. The choice is yours but it is likely one you will need to make during the beginning phases of your construction project. You could add a heater after the project has been complete, but it could be more costly.

The cost a swim spa varies but they could begin at around $5,000 and go up from there depending on the accessories you would like to have as well as its size and style.

Talk with your swimming pool contractor from Imperial Pools to understand the intricacies of these structures and you may find that even though you don’t want to invest in a swimming pool you may want to invest in a swim spa because it will perfectly suit your needs.
