Top 5 Tips for Choosing a Swim Spa That's Best for Your Family

So you’ve decided to get a swim spa for your family. That’s great news! But do you know which swim spa you should get? Don’t worry; we’re here to help. 

There are several things you should consider before buying a swim spa for your family. We’ve put together these tips to help the decision process go smoothly and ensure you’re getting the best swim spa for your home. 


How Big Should Your Swim Spa Be?

The first thing to figure out is how big your swim spa should be. Where do you plan on installing the swim spa, and how ample is that space? How big is your family, and how tall are they? You will need to answer these critical questions to choose a suitable swim spa model for your family.

We offer several swim spa models that can accommodate three up to eight people in several sizes and configurations. You can view these models, their descriptions, and specifications online, or you can visit our showroom. Our swim spa experts can help you determine the best size.


What Will You Be Using Your Swim Spa For?

The next item for consideration is what you plan to use the swim spa for. Will it be for fun and relaxation, exercise, or both? Determining this also helps to choose the correct size of swim spa for your needs, how much seating it will require, what features are most important to you, what level of maintenance is needed, and what upgrades you may want to include in your swim spa package.


Will You Be Using The Swim Spa Year-Round?

Finally, you’ll need to decide if you want to use your swim spa year-round. If you plan on using your swim spa year-round, make sure that it is built with winter use in mind. Some things to consider for year-round use include how well the swim spa is insulated and how energy-efficient are the pumps? Even if they’re well insulated, swim spas can be expensive to run if their pumps require a ton of energy to run.

There are additional maintenance requirements for year-round use; be sure to talk with our swim spa experts to find the most efficient and easy-to-maintain swim spa for your needs!
