What Are Swim Spas?

Swim spas really take swimming to the next level. It is a Jacuzzi size pool with jets to push you as you swim toward them so you can swim in place. They come in different sizes and styles to fit in with your lifestyle. They're great for indoor and outdoor installation in your home, gym and even some work places.

They come in 14 foot 16 foot and 18 foot sizes. Models when they are dry typically weigh 2900lbs to 3000lbs and hold about 2000 gallons of water. They come with 24 spa jets that have turbo air. That means they are very powerful for more resistance so you can swim harder and faster. They have 50 amps and 240 volts of electricity to get enough power to the jets to be strong and for the spa to be warm enough to be installed inside your home and even used in the winter. They come with a 15w heater which you may control temperature with for working out or relaxing spa sessions. There are also pump options to increase and decrease resistance, stainless steel swim jets so as not to rust, and swim lane tiling options for you to stay straight and on track. The safety cover it comes with will come in handy for when it is not in use. You want to make sure it is closed so animals and children can't get into it when it is not occupied.

It also comes with features such as a sanitizing filter for easy self cleaning, exercise rowing bands for added work out resistance, various stereo system options both under water and above water, under water night lighting systems, and regular or LED waterfalls for relaxation.

Swim spas are smaller than a pool and don't take up much space so they are able to fit in the house and also are easy to install. The water cost and electricity are both way more effective than a regular size pool because of the size as well.

When exercising, it is great for any body type. It has extremely low impact, is great for muscle building and sculpting, can relieve back pain and some may even need chiropractors less depending on severity of injury. You can strengthen your core, back, legs, and lungs for deep breathing. It is safer than a pool because the water isn't that deep and there is always something to hold on to.
