WILL POOL WATER HURT MY DOG?
SHOULD I BUY A POOL OR HOT TUB?
The size and layout of your backyard should both be taken into consideration. A hot tub can fit easily into most backyards, while a swimming pool will require a medium to large-sized backyard space. Especially if you wish to connect your pool or spa to the house via a built-in deck or patio installation.
Every budget is different, along with the cost of a swimming pool or hot tub installation. Before making your choice, sit down and take a good look at your budget. Once you know what is comfortably affordable both short and long term, you can make a more informed decision.
Your family life can also impact your decision. Smaller families or situations where the kids have moved out, leaving parents empty nesters, may get more use out of a relaxing hot tub. Larger families with young children will likely make good use of the pool on weekends and during summer vacation. Not to mention if you enjoy entertaining family and friends in the comfort of your backyard or prefer to keep your outdoor oasis to yourselves.
How do you spend your free time? Most often, backyards are personalized according to the homeowners interests and desires. Those who like to relax and ease stress in their backyard might enjoy the installation of a hot tub over a pool, while those who prefer a more active lifestyle could make use of a swimming pool.
If you can’t decide between a swimming pool and a hot tub, we might have the solution for you. Swim spas are often described as a hybrid system between a pool and a hot tub. Perfect for relaxation, stress relief, healing, recreation, entertainment, and exercise, swim spas can fit comfortably into most backyards and lifestyles for countless hours of leisure, entertainment and enjoyment.
