Swim Spas Make a Big Splash with Baby Boomers

If you are an aging baby boomer like I am, you may be looking for a fun form of water recreation where you can get some relief from aching muscles and joints, be able to exercise or just relax, have a place for the grand kids to play and better yet, all of this occurs in one place from the comfort and convenience of your own home.

Many of the potential swimming pool buyers are looking into swim spas as an alternative to installing a fiberglass swimming pool or above ground pool. Many homeowners don't have the space in the backyard or the budget to maintain a full size pool.

Now you can get the benefits of water therapy for the mature family members as well fun for the family in one small package.

Swim spas have been around for a long time but they weren't very popular until recently. Now retailers are claiming a distinct increase in sales and the benefits of owning a swim spa are highly touted by the public.

Recreational swimmers like them especially if they don't care about using a full size pool. They will easily fit on a deck or small backyard, but can also be installed indoors. If you really are limited in space in the backyard consider a home remodel and include the swim spa in those plans. Basements and garages are a popular place to install the spa but look for models that come in pieces so they will easily fit through a 30 inch doorway.

You might be building a dream home so why not create a complete swim spa room by including an infrared sauna, wet bar, fireplace, dining table, television and more? This could be your new workout room or part of the family room for entertaining. Many like to put them in a glassed wing of the home so they can look up at the stars while relaxing or working out. If you live on a lake in the North woods enjoying the water in the summer, install the swim spa indoors so you can have aquatic benefits in the winter months. Those long cold Wisconsin winters will be tolerable when you are working out or relaxing in the nice warm water from your very own swim spa.

The swim spa was invented to give the capability of swimming in place and typically uses a 4-horsepower jet system that moves water as fast as 400 mph, creating a strong resistance while swimming "up stream". Most models allow you to control the intensity of the workout and speed of the water so you can get in a vigorous swim or just a slow walk. Another spa might have a small propeller that drives a current naturally for the swimmer. The most popular material is a gel-coated fiberglass, but you will also find a vacuum-formed acrylic and vinyl liner as well. They are extremely low maintenance and uncomplicated. They vary in size, but a usual spa will be 14 feet by 6 feet and vary from 3 ? 6 feet deep. They come with thick padded covers for child safety. Many models have seating around it just as a hot tub would have.

A typical swim spa is easy to clean, doesn't require dehumidification indoors that larger pools need and the circulation quickly keeps your water quality at a high level. You use a lot less chemicals and less heat is required making them very economical to use.

You can also add surround sound music and lighting just as in other hot tubs for a complete experience. These pint size pools can give you the best of many worlds. The exercise therapy and rehabilitation are well documented for everything from sports injuries to the typical arthritic aches and pains. You have hydrotherapy and relaxation from the spa jets, exercise and low impact aerobics from water resistance, injury rehabilitation from the isometric therapy and water fun for everyone. There are many aquatic pieces of exercise equipment such as a treadmill or stationary bike that work great when added to the spa as well.

Where else can you find all of these things in one compact product and all at your convenience while staying at home? They range in price from about $14,000 to $32,000 plus monthly maintenance, but with all of the benefits they are well worth the investment for your home and your health.
