Hot tubs and swim spas – what’s the difference?


Why buy a hot tub?

Since ancient times, the healing powers of water have been used to improve health and reduce pain. With today’s hectic lifestyles, water and spa therapies have taken on greater importance, offering a natural and effective way to relax and reduce stress.

Hydropool hot tubs offer a feeling like no other. With ergonomic design and customisable therapies, you can tailor your hot tub experience to your exact needs. Hydropool hot tubs can be installed indoors or out, are the world’s most energy efficient and offer minimal maintenance, meaning more time to enjoy them.

Hydropool hot tubs:

Create more time for relaxing
Feel the stress and tension seep out of your body as you sit back, stretch out, and let the combination of warm water, pulsating jets and the natural buoyancy of the water do its magic. You’ll look forward to your times in your hot tub and so will create time for them, building them into your daily routine.

Are a place to entertain
When you’re relaxing, you enjoy life more. It’s easier to converse, smile and laugh. Hydropool hot tubs are great for entertaining and your guests will leave with fond memories of the time spent with you in your hot tub. With plenty of seating options, extra large foot wells, massage programmes and built-in champagne buckets, everyone can enjoy and indulge. Hydropool hot tubs are available in an extensive range of sizes to suit your lifestyle: for smaller spaces and families we offer hot tubs seating up to four people, and for larger families or those who like to entertain, we have models that comfortably seat anywhere from five to ten people.

Aid both physical and mental wellbeing
The soothing warm water and massage jets of a Hydropool hot tub will relieve body and muscle aches – choose from a gentle massage to an invigorating pulse. Your circulation will improve, your muscles will relax and feel better, and your state of mind will be enhanced. After a soak in your hot tub, you will be better prepared to face a hectic day at work, a workout at the gym or a round of golf at the club, and will sleep better.

Why buy a swim spa?

The perfect pool. The perfect swim. There are a number of reasons to invest in a swim spa. For centuries, people have flocked to the public pool to take advantage of the health benefits of swimming. Today, people around the world continue to agree that there is nothing that can give the same exercise value as swimming – a no impact activity that uses every muscle.

While public pools are easy to find, the inconvenience of having to drive to the health centre or swimming pool to swim with other people makes it difficult to follow a routine. With a Hydropool swim spa, this experience can easily be brought to you own home or garden.

Hydropool swim spas offer:

The perfect family getaway, all year round
Swim spas are the pool you didn’t think you had room for or could afford. They offer the same levels of fun and fitness as a traditional pool, but with added benefits. Being smaller than a conventional pool, Hydropool swim spas require less chemicals, less maintenance and less energy to heat and operate. Hydropool swim spas can be installed indoors or out, whichever best suits you and your lifestyle; you can enjoy your swim spa 12 months a year, adjusting the temperate to suit the outside climate.

The perfect swimming environment
Swim spas by Hydropool are the perfect way to swim every day. Imagine never having to turn, touch or push off from any wall. The swim current gives you the ability to focus on your stroke technique and enjoy the fluidity of the current adjusted to your personal swim level. The swim spa tank design has no hidden obstacles like steps or benches for your feet to hit in the swim lane, giving you a far superior swimming experience than any other swim spa available today. You create your ideal swimming environment with temperature and current settings.

Flexibility and practicality for fitness and fun
With a Hydropool swim spa, you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds for fun and fitness. As well as open water and tethered swimming, the flat, ergonomically designed anti-slip floor and generous tank size allow for a variety of other fitness exercises, including tethered jogging and rowing. Additionally, the swim spa is a safe and easy environment in which to teach kids how to swim. Turn the current off and you have the perfect plunge/splash pool for family fun or unwinding with friends.
