Custom Design - Swim Spa / Plunge Pool Hybrid
Four of our best selling swim spa shapes can also be custom manufactured as an entry level plunge pool. These spas only need one pump and there is significantly less plumbing, equipment and fittings as well as fewer standard features, making them a less expensive option. Plunge pools have become a popular alternative to the typical backyard swimming pool, as they are fast to install and are smaller and more manageable to maintain. With 2 swim jets powered by 1 pump, you can still enjoy the whirlpool movement of the swim jets, but it’s more suited to childs play and splashing, much like a swimming pool, however you can easily warm the water for year round use. The 2 swim jets are fun for the kids to practice swimming against and enough resistance for those needing the swim spa as a recovery or rehabilitation tool or to maintain motion throughout the older years. Our myWatersedge is much like a swimming pool with wide, shallow entry steps & open plan layout for child’s play & toddler splashing. Even if you add an optional heat&cool pump for cheaper heat retention, our plunge pools still only require a 20amp connection to run.
4 Key Advantages of A Swim Spa Over A Backyard Pool
1. As backyards now have less space, swim spas are a good fit. Smaller than your typical backyard swimming pool, swim spas (which typically range from 3m to 6m in length, 2.3m wide and 1.3m deep) have become the perfect solution
2. Investing in a swim spa is generally less expensive than purchasing a pool. A portable swim spa will cost from $16k for a very basic plunge model to $40k+ for a fully equipped dualzone, with the only extras being a reinforced concrete slab/base, safety barrier in some areas, electrical connection and water. Depending on the manufacturer, pool size, equipment, your site conditions and the customisation you choose, a typical swimming pool can cost between $40k and $100k+. Installation can also get quite pricy with hidden extras and additional landscaping.
3. Swim spas are easier to maintain and heat than pools because of their smaller size/body of water, so you can get your money worth and use them 365 days of the year, throughout summer & winter
4. A swim spa is a self-contained unit, so can be moved if you decide to relocate to another home
How much does a swim spa cost?
A swim spa purchase price can range from $20,000 for our Plunge specification to $50,000+ for a fully customised swim spa. Swim spas definitely are not cheap, but they are about half the price of most swimming pools. Thanks to low cost heating technology, you can economically use your swim spa year round and there are also a lot more options with installation.
