Shock is a pool chemical that you can find at just about any pool supply store. There are different types of shock treatments, but the two most common are chlorinated and non-chlorinated. The main reason you use shock in a pool is to clear up any algae in your pool. Swimming pools, both in-ground and above-ground swimming pools, may grow algae if their water levels become imbalanced. When a pool’s chlorine or pH is too low, there’s a chance that algae can grow. Other reasons to use shock in your pool include strange water odor and murky water.

For years, hot tubs have been known as a proven hydrotherapy method to help alleviate joint and muscle pain and reduce stress. But, when swim spas were first introduced, they completely revolutionized modern hydrotherapy.

Some outdoor swim spas even have a dividing wall that splits the swimming area from a separate hot tub area at the other end. This allows you to exercise, as well as relax afterward, and better yet, with the swim spa’s temperature control, you can use water to exercise all year round.
