Frequently Asked Questions
What is a swim spa?
A swim spa combines the benefits of a hot tub for relaxation and a swimming pool for exercise into one unit.
How big is a swim spa?
Swim spas can be anywhere from 12 to 20 feet in length, about 8 feet in width and 4.5 feet deep making them perfect for even the smallest yard.
Are swim spas handicap accessible?
Swim spas can be equipped with special lifts to make them handicap accessible.
How much water is in a swim spa?
Swim spas can hold anywhere from 2,500 to 5,000 gallons.
Can I put a swim spa on my deck?
Due to their weight, you cannot put a swim spa on a deck; however, you can build a deck around it for easier entrance.
How long does it take to heat up?
Water in a swim spa typically heats up 5 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit per hour, though this can be slower for a larger body of water. Expect at least 8-12 hours to reach temperature.
How often do I need to drain my swim spa?
As with a hot tub, the water should be drained and refilled once the TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) is greater than 2,500 parts per million. At least once a year is typical for most users. Since it is a larger body of water than a hot tub, a partial drain and refill may be easier to perform on a more regular basis.
