I love to swim, should I get a pool or a swim spa hot tub?
One major difference between a pool and a hot tub is the ability to use a hot tub outdoors all year long. If you live in an environment where there are cold winters, this is especially important. You can use your hot tub 12 months out of the year, whereas with a pool you get an average of 3 months use out of the year. Not to mention the space efficiency of a hot tub vs. a pool. A Swim Spa hot tub can be used like a pool, with the option to swim all year long, and it takes up much less space than a pool. In addition, a hot tub requires less chemicals, making the maintenance less expensive and more Eco-friendly.
The most notable disadvantages of owning a pool are:
- limited seasonal use
- large space requirements
- expensive building code regulations
- timely maintenance
- expensive upkeep and negative effect to home’s resale value (more…)
