The Swim Spa provides so much more than just the ability to swim. It offers swimming, water aerobics, jogging, rowing, relaxation, fun, and therapeutic massage. Most lap pools are in-ground and are limited in their use. A Swim Spa is a versatile Pool and Spa combined, which offers much more. Not only can you swim laps, lose weight, build muscle, and get a great workout; but you can also relax and rejuvenate after with massage therapy. Swim Spas are also portable. If you move or want to change the location of your Swim Spa, it is an easy step. You can't move a lap pool or any other in-ground pool.

The obvious advantages of a Swim Spa are the space-saving size, year round use, variety of workout types, massage therapy and lower cost. Studies have shown that the cost of owning and operating a Swim Spa compared to a pool is 40% lower. Chemical costs are reduced due to the size of a Swim Spa. The Swim Spa holds 2,500 gallons of water, while a pool holds as much as 30,000 gallons. This makes the Swim Spa more environmentally friendly and less expensive to heat.
