Have you ever dreamed of having a luxurious swimming pool without the high cost or maintenance? A swim spa could be your perfect solution. Here are some frequently asked questions about owning a swim spa in New England.

How Long Does A Swim Spa Last?

A swim spa can last 25 years or more with proper maintenance. This makes it an investment that can pay dividends year after year in terms of fun and relaxation. Swim spas have many features, like variable jet action, temperature regulation, and a wide array of therapeutic settings, all tailored to meet the user’s needs. With regular cleaning and maintenance, your swim spa can provide you with years of enjoyment.

How Long Does It Take To Heat A Swim Spa?

The amount of time it takes to heat a swim spa depends on the size, but generally, it should take between 8-10 hours for its first use. This is because the heating system in your swim spa is designed to rapidly heat the water, allowing you to get in and enjoy your spa right away. However, this time frame will vary depending on the water’s temperature, your surroundings, and how well-insulated your swim spa is.

Do Swim Spas Have Covers?

Absolutely. A cover is a significant part of the swim spa. Many options are available depending on your price range and the goals you are trying to achieve. Whether your focus is durability, heat retention, safety, security, or style, there is a cover that will perfectly suit your needs.

Can You Walk In A Swim Spa?

Swimming pools are great for recreation and exercise, but a swim spa is even better. Not only can you take a leisurely stroll in the calm water, but it’s also an excellent way to get some low-impact cardiovascular and strength training—perfect for those with balance issues or joint pain. It’s also an excellent way to boost your heart rate and burn calories!

Can You Use A Swim Spa In The Winter?

Wintertime doesn’t have to mean saying goodbye to your swim spa! Keeping the water circulating and up to temperature is key for getting the most out of your swim spa all year round. With regular maintenance, it’s easy to turn up the heat so you can enjoy your swim spa in comfort—even in the colder winter months.

Can You Put A Swim Spa Inground or Sunk into a Deck?

Yes, you can put a swim spa inground or sunk into a deck. However, this type of installation will require special considerations so that the spa can be accessed if it needs service.
