Swim spas are ideal for small spaces because they are compact. But if you have an especially small area, you may be wondering whether a swim spa will fit. Luckily there are many very small options available.
Below you’ll learn about dimensions for small swim spa models, how much space you’ll need, and get expert recommendations.
Small Swim Spa Perks
Swim spas are popular because their small size gives buyers the ability to enjoy the perks of a pool while saving space. The smaller the swim spa you choose, the easier it will be to maintain, drain, and clean, which will save you both time and money. In addition, you won’t require as many chemicals and with less water to heat, your electric bills will be far less than a swimming pool or larger swim spa. Small swim spas can also be easily added to decks, patios, or even fit in a sunroom or corner of a small room.
Dimensions and Sizing
Before you commit to the absolute smallest swim spa, you’ll want to measure your space. Because many swim spas are quite compact, you may want to invest in a slightly larger one if it will fit. If you discover that you have very limited space, the smallest swim spa is typically between 10 and 11 feet long, 7 and 8 feet wide, and 4 and 5 feet deep. Something to keep in mind about this size is that they are usually designed for therapy rather than swimming with hydrotherapy features like a hot tub. If you want muscle relaxation and targeted massage or suffer from arthritis or back pain, this may be a good option for you.
Additional Small Sizes
If you have enough space, a 12-foot swim spa will allow you more flexibility than the smallest models. A 12-foot swim spa can be comfortably used for swimming and fitness and can accommodate more people. Beyond this, there is a range of sizes up to 21 feet, so you can pick the size that is truly right for your space and your lifestyle.
With so many small swim spas available, it should be easy for you to find the right size for you. Next, download our buyer’s guide to view swim spas in a range of sizes.
