No matter what size of outdoor area you have, a swim spa can provide you with relaxation, exercise, and other benefits of a swimming pool while taking up less space.
Since there are many sizes of swim spas, it can be hard to know which one you need. Below you’ll find out about the wide range of swim spa sizes and get tips for how to choose the best size for you.
Pay Attention to Length
The most important first step in choosing a swim spa size is to look at its length. Make sure you can swim in it comfortably. If you’re very tall, you’ll want to choose a swim spa where you can comfortably complete all of the strokes you’ll be swimming. A 14-foot swim spa is a versatile size because it allows you enough room for exercise and accommodates several swimmers if you want to entertain or have a family gathering.
Consider the Height
Height is a second important consideration, especially if you have small children. Choose a height that allows them to frolic in the waves while the water is at a safe level for them.
Think About Your Activities
Whether to choose a small or a large swim spa also depends on the types of activities you’ll do there. If you’ll primarily use it for fitness and relaxation, a small model will be a fine choice. If you plan to entertain frequently or have a large family, a larger option will be a better choice because it will allow everyone room for a spacious swim.
Look at the Future
While many people choose the size of their swim spa based on their present needs, it’s important to think about the future as well. Even if you currently have small children who use the swim spa infrequently, they will use it more as they get older. If you don’t have kids but plan to start a family, buying a larger model now will ensure that you can use it for years to come without having to buy a new swim spa.
