If you're thinking about adding a swim spa to your backyard, it helps to know what's involved in building a new one. Inground pools are a great way to spend time with your family and friends, but they are limited to warm months. Swim spa can give you access to your pool year-round and has several additional benefits, such as extra room for swimming or hydromassage seats. Some models are dual-purpose, and you can even get one with a hot tub !


The importance of planning an inground swim spa

It is important to consider the entire process of installing an inground swim spa before deciding to proceed with the project. Visualizing each step of the installation will allow you to perform the process with ease and avoid difficulties as much as possible. The last thing you want to do is run into a problem you hadn't thought of and find that the program just doesn't work. The thought of owning an inground swim spa can be very exciting, but it's important to moderate that excitement with careful planning.



Choosing the ideal location for your swim spa should be one of the first things you do. You will need to review any zoning regulations that may apply to swim spas in your community. Easements and setback rules for red lines, surrounding structures, and overhead and inground utilities should be assessed. Other practical considerations, such as privacy, immediate microclimate, and proximity to deciduous trees, should also be taken into account when choosing a location.

Shipping your swim spa from the dealer to your desired location is another thing to consider beforehand. Many swim spa installations require the use of cranes. If you think you can deliver without a crane, you should pay special attention to headroom, tight turns and narrow passages.



Whether your swim spa is installed above or below ground, it still needs a stable, level foundation. We strongly recommend the use of poured concrete slabs for swim spas. The foundation must be installed and set before the swim spa arrives, so it is important to determine the type of foundation you will be using and time it correctly.


The inground swim spa requires a stable, level base that's capable of supporting the weight of the spa. The base must be solid enough to support the swim spa, with floor loadings greater than 500kg per square meter. Additionally, concrete retaining walls need to be waterproofed and tanked with waterproofing material. Pumps that operate on float-switch-operated valves need dedicated RCD supplies. The elongated shape and powerful jets create a powerful current that helps swimmers stay in place. Swimmers can adjust their body position and engage their core muscles to stay balanced. This provides an enjoyable and productive workout in a small space. It is also convenient and can be used wherever you want to use a pool. And the best part? Inground swim spas are available in a variety of sizes and styles.

In ground swim spas are typically comprised of modular units, which allow for a greater degree of flexibility than above-ground models. These swim spas can also be installed as self-contained units. Although excavation is required, the work isn't nearly as disruptive as an ordinary swimming pool installation. You'll be able to build an inground swim spa without compromising the appearance of your yard. If you have the space for a full-size swim spa, it is well worth the extra investment. What's more, They offer many advantages over a full-sized pool and require less maintenance. Aquaspring's outdoor inground hot tub swim spa can be an excellent place to swim for rehabilitation or even resistance training. Many models also feature a built-in hot water spa. And there are several other reasons to add one to your yard. The most important benefit is that you'll have a low-impact workout while in the comfort of your own home.


Swim spas are considered ideal for swimmers who do not have the space required to install a full size swimming pool. The current generated by the swim spa keeps swimmers in one place while they take their swims and ensures that they don't need a lot of space for the swimming experience. Although a swim spa is much more compact than a traditional swimming pool or plunge pool, the cabinets can still seem quite large, especially in small areas. For this reason, some swim spa owners opt for inground installations.
