Installing a heated swimming pool in your backyard might seem like a great idea. But soon, potential buyers discover it’s no small task or cost associated with installing a pool. That said, homeowners don’t have to give up on the idea of a pool, but they may want to consider a different option. We’ll show you why swim spas are a great alternative to heated pools.
They are easy to install
Everyone oohs and ahhs at a beautiful inground pool. But what those admirers may not realize is what it takes to make that inground pool a reality. An inground heated pool comes with the hassle of building permits, hiring an installer, and a significant amount of time to get to the finished product.
Swim spas are a great alternative in that they are incredibly easy to install. In fact, most swim spas can be delivered and installed all in one day. This allows you to begin enjoying your swim spa faster than you would with a heated pool. A crane lifts the swim spa into place, it is moved to the exact location, and installed in a few hours.
Swim spas have a smaller footprint than a traditional pool
Unless you have a massive backyard, there’s usually a trade off when you install a pool. You sacrifice a large portion of your yard in order to have a beautiful inground heated pool. That’s not the case with a swim spa, though. Swim spas are a great alternative because they take up far less space than a traditional pool. In fact, you can sometimes even fit a swim spa on your existing patio. No need to sacrifice your entire backyard in order to enjoy the benefits of a heated swim spa.
A swim spa can be used all year
Even with heated pools, there’s typically a beginning and end to their season. At some point, most pool owners decide it’s time to close up the pool until the following year. With a swim spa, there’s no need to say “until next year”. You can enjoy it all year long by adjusting the temperature to remain comfortable as cool nights turn to cold nights.
Less expensive than a traditional pool
A traditional heated pool can come with a hefty initial price tag. On top of that, traditional pools can require significant maintenance, including replacing liners, over the life of the pool. Swim spas, on the other hand, cost significantly less upfront and have a much lower cost of maintenance. You can have the same level of enjoyment and entertainment, but for much less money than with an inground heated pool.
