Which Swim Spa is Right for Me?

So, you're interested in a swim spa but not sure which one is right for you? Your perfect swim spa depends on your lifestyle, garden and budget. Dive in and let us talk you through your options in our swim spa guide.

Let's start by considering what you can use your swim spa for, it's not just swimming...


What can you do in a swim spa?

Swim Spa


A swim spa does what it says on the tin! Currents allow you to swim for as short or as long as you like, whether it's winter or summer. Swim spas are great for teaching kids how to swim in the privacy and safety of your own garden.

Aqua Aerobics

Swim spas are ideal for low impact exercise such as aqua aerobics. Many swim spas come with mats to prevent slipping, as well as options to attach resistance bands, perfect for strength-building workouts. Depending on the size of the spa, you can also use them for aerobic exercises, find out more in our swim spa exercise guide.


Swim Spa Hydrotherapy

If you’re looking to relax as well as swim, or improve your general health, swim spas benefit from the hydrotherapy technology of hot tubs. Hydro massage uses water to soothe aches and pains, improving a whole range of physical conditions, such as arthritis and poor circulation, as well as reducing mental stress. Find out more about the benefits of hot tub hydrotherapy in our blog.


What size swim spa do I need?

When it comes to choosing the right size swim spa for you, consider how large your garden is, and how you plan to use your spa. Swim spas are extremely versatile, offering a combination of exercise and relaxation. To help you decide what size is the right fit for you, we'll explore the benefits of the most popular sizes: 13ft, 16ft, and 19ft swim spas.

13ft Swim Spas - For Compact Spaces and Personal Exercise

16 Foot Swim Spas
  • Space-Saving: With its compact size, it's perfect for smaller gardens and patios.
  • Personal Exercise: Ideal for individuals or couples who primarily want a space for aquatic exercise, you can comfortably swim against the current for a cardio workout, or use it for resistance training.
  • Therapeutic Benefits: While smaller, 13 foot swim spas still provide hydrotherapy for relaxation and recovery in place of a hot tub.

16ft Swim Spas - For Family Fun and Hydrotherapy

13 Foot Swim Spas
    • Family-Friendly: With more space than a 13 foot swim spa, 16 feet is ideal for families and hot tub parties.
    • Hydrotherapy: Enjoy ample seating and hydrotherapy jets, an excellent choice if you're looking for relief from muscle tension, pain, or stress.
    • Fitness and Fun: You can still use a 16ft swim spa for aquatic exercise and swimming, but it also allows for leisure and play.

    19ft Swim Spas - For Serious Swimmers and an All-in-One Spa

    19 Foot Swim Spa
      • Pro Swimmers: If you're an avid swimmer, 19 feet provides a larger swimming area, it's as close as you can get to a real pool experience.
      • Versatile Functionality: You'll have space for exercise, relaxation, and socialising, perfect for a comprehensive all-in-one hot tub and aquatic centre.
      • Entertaining: With its generous size, a 19 foot swim spa is great for pool parties, family time, or stretching out in style!
