If you are considering buying a swim spa, you may be wondering: Is a swim spa easy to install? The answer: Yes!  Once the space is prepared, a swim spa pool can be installed in a few days. It all depends on what you want for the finished look. Here are some tips and examples.

The beauty of a swim spa over a full sized pool is that swim spas can be installed virtually anywhere. Put them in a basement, on a deck, in a home gym, the backyard, or sunroom. Install them indoors, outdoors, above ground or in-ground. Their compact size requires very little space and depending on the brand you choose can be delivered in sections for access into tight spaces. Many swim spa pools pack a powerful punch in as little as 200-square feet of space.  Why install a full-sized pool when you get everything you need from this highly efficient fitness and therapy pool?

If you’re worried about humidity indoors, don’t be concerned. Swim spas use a smaller body of water than large in-ground pools. This makes for very little humidity and fewer chemicals.  In fact, if you use a pool cover or floating blanket, you can control nearly 100% of the humidity.

When choosing a swim spa it’s important to know how it’s built. Some swim spas are constructed with a vinyl liner and some are made with fiberglass. SwimEx swim spas are built with superior fiberglass composite construction that’s made up of  1/8” (.31 cm) fiberglass on each side of a 3/4” (1.9 cm) balsa wood core. This creates a highly insulated and indestructible shell. You can install them inside or outside and never worry about tearing or replacing a vinyl liner. Plus, the smooth fiberglass surface acts as a barrier against moisture absorption and algae growth. It cleans quickly, is extremely easy to maintain, and has non-slip surfaces on all interior walking/workout stations for safe movement.
