What could be more relaxing than hopping into a spa (hot tub) in your own backyard? But did you know there are a variety of spas available for you to choose from when deciding to have one installed? Check out some of the available options below:
Portable hot tubs are a great choice for many people. These units are self-contained. They are very easy to install. Portable spas come with all the features of permanent tubs but are able to be moved from one place to another. They are a long-term investment. If you decide to move, your spa can move with you. They have a neat and tidy appearance because the equipment is tucked away around or under the spa. Another benefit of these spas is that they are often more budget-friendly than permanent tubs and are able to fit into limited spaces
If you always wanted a swimming pool to swim laps, but thought it cost too much or you didn’t have the space for it, then a swim spa is just what you need. A swim spa allows you to swim continuously against a water current. You never “hit the wall” or have to turn around to continue to swim laps like in a regular pool. Swim spas can be self-contained portable units or be installed into your existing inground swimming pool. There are now dual-zone spas that allow two people to do different things at the same time in one spa with two different temperature controls.
Spas can be installed for a spillover effect or side by side with your in-ground swimming pool. This option is great especially if you already have a pool and provides an attractive landscape. In ground spas have the added benefit of being extremely quiet as all of the mechanical equipment needed to run the hot tub can be installed further away from the spa.Unfortunately, in-ground spas don’t include the freedom to move your spa like the portable ones and are usually more costly. However, if you have the time and money available to have an in ground model installed, you will likely be pleased with the aesthetics and durability.
Swimming Pool Spas
Swimming pool spas are the best of both worlds. This is a swimming pool and spa combination that integrates your spa into your inground swimming pool design. Spas can be developed to be flush with the pool or raised to create a more three-dimensional look. There are many customizable options for this type of spa that your pool contractor can discuss with you. This popular trend in pool/spas provides the perfect place to relax and creates a beautiful backyard paradise.
The choice of spa is up to you and your needs. No matter what you decide, you will have a place to relax that will add value and beauty to your home. Most importantly, your spa will greatly improve your personal wellness without ever having to leave your backyard.
