Swim spas combine the benefits of both a hot tub and a pool in one compact unit. You can get all of the hydrotherapeutic benefits from the spa jets and get a great workout in, too. Below are some essential points to consider before purchasing.
How Much Does It Cost To Install?
Costs for a swim spa vary greatly depending on their specific features, sizes, and capabilities. These spas can cost anywhere from $19,000 to $45,000+ dollars. A swim spa would be a great addition to any home and costs about somewhere right in the middle of a hot tub and a pool.
The cost of installing a swim spa depends on where you would like it to be installed and the type of surface that you have. A concrete pad is required in many situations, depending on the weight and size of your swim spa. These concrete pads typically cost a few thousand dollars, but are necessary in many cases to ensure that no issues arise. Concrete pads will also provide the necessary foundation to have peace of mind that your swim spa remains safe and secure for many years to come.
Other costs associated with installing a spa include but are not limited to delivery, transportation, and electrical work. When it comes to the delivery of your spa, most will require a crane. Due to their size and weight, most swim spas have to be delivered this way. The cost of a crane rental depends on where you live and the job site.
When it is time for the electrical work of an installation to be done, it is crucial to hire a licensed professional. Bringing in a reputable, experienced electrician can add to the overall cost of your installation, but is entirely worth it. The cost of electrical work depends upon location and any other factors.
It is important to note that the cost of each of these items will vary depending on what type of swim spa you choose and the dimensions, shape, and weight.
How Much Does It Cost To Maintain?
There are a few things to remember when considering the ongoing cost of running a swim spa. Here is a breakdown of the costs involved in maintaining a swim spa, including the heating and operating costs as well as the chemical requirements to maintain the correct water chemistry levels.
You can ultimately expect an increase in your electrical bill when you have any other device that is powered by electricity added. For example, when owning a swim spa, your bill will depend upon how much heat your spa holds and the type of insulation and cover it has. Your electrical bill will typically increase by approximately one dollar per day; however, there are other factors that can impact your bill. For instance, if your swim spa is larger in size or if it is running at warmer temperatures non-stop, then this number could become higher.
Another factor that will impact your ongoing costs is your swim spa’s warranty. It is important to understand what your warranty covers to know how much you might need to spend if anything happens moving forward. Hydropool Swim spas come with a 10/5/3 warranty. The warranty covers the structure for 10 years, the shell surface for 5, and the plumbing and mechanical components for 3. This means you don’t have to worry about having to pay too much out of pocket if you need something fixed within those specified timeframes.
