Backyard aquatic entertainment comes in many different forms. A swimming pool is amazing, but there are also other options to consider adding to your backyard to complement a pool. Goodall Pools & Spas has been helping Pennsylvanians with their at-home leisure activities for almost 60 years now, from Harrisburg down to Lancaster. Maybe you’re considering getting a swim spa or a hot tub for your home, but you’re not quite sure what each one offers you. What’s the difference between a swim spa and a hot tub?
Glad you asked! Let’s take a closer look at each machine. There are amazing benefits that a swim spa or a hot tub can provide for you and your family.
Sublime Swim Spa
First, let’s talk about a sublime swim spa. A swim spa is named appropriately – it has space to swim and space to soak and enjoy hydrotherapy. At Goodall Pools, we carry Hydropool® swim spas that are designed for anyone’s enjoyment. Athletes and casual swimmers alike find satisfaction with one of these swim spas and for good reason.
Many people invest in a swim spa for the low impact exercise options it affords. Swimming against a resistance stream is a great form of aquatic exercise. You can customize your workout too by adjusting the speed of the wide, smooth current and by utilizing exercise equipment designed with a swim spa in mind.
Hydropool swim spas are manufactured in Canada – which means they are made to endure harsh weather conditions. In fact, you can use one of these swim spas year round. An energy-efficient swim spa with a durable design is a great investment for many reasons.
One more perk of having one of these fine machines is that they are self-cleaning. Each Hydropool swim spa is equipped with filtration jets and an in-floor cleaning system complete with its own vacuum. When it’s time to clean the swim spa, you can start the process and will see the “self clean mode” indicator light up. Then all you do is allow the pressurized micro-filtration to do its work – in just 40 minutes!
Healthful Hot Tub
A hot tub is also a wonderful luxury to have in your backyard. We have Sundance® Spas and Viking Spas™ to give you a great selection of hot tubs to choose from. You might be more familiar with a hot tub, but we can still look at some of their amazing features. These wonderful machines are designed solely for relaxing soaks. Hot tubs have multiple jets placed strategically to offer hydrotherapy anytime you need it.
There are many benefits that come with a hot tub. Many people invest in a hot tub for the health advantages they offer. Suffer from chronic pain? Soak and let it slip away for a while. Need a way to fall asleep quickly? A hot tub session is just what the doctor ordered. Have stress on a regular basis? The warm, swirling water of a spa is the perfect place to let your stress go while you relax and unwind.
What’s the difference between a swim spa and a hot tub? They are each designed for a specific purpose. And they are both great additions to any home. Let our friendly, knowledgeable staff at any of our five locations help you decide which machine would be most magical for your enjoyment.
