Sapphire Spas, Manufacturing The Most Economical Australian Made Swim Spas in Melbourne
Melbourne is an energetic city with a relaxed atmosphere, full of people who love to spend quality time outdoors with friends and family. Days at the beach is a much loved activity and being around the water is second nature. Having a swim spa gives you a gathering place for your friends and family, creating a comfortable, social and healthy energy when you welcome people into your home.
Sapphire Spas are an Australian owned company that design and build swim spas and outdoor spas right here in Australia, so have a look at the information on this page and hopefully we can help steer you in the right direction towards buying a swim spa that suits your lifestyle. Is swimming your favourite exercise but you only have a small backyard? Swim spas are made for people that love swimming but don’t have room for a large swimming pool. They are the perfect combination of a therapeutic spa and a swimming pool, making them a good choice for courtyards and compact outdoor spaces. The lower price of swim spas makes them a more affordable option than a traditional backyard swimming pool and you can install your swim spa anywhere you can install a traditional hot tub, which reduces installation time and cost as well. If you're looking for a traditional outdoor spa pool then click this link to read more about them here.
Our Melbourne showrooms carry swim spas from 3 main categories. If you're looking for a family sized swim spa for massage and play, from 4-6 metres in length, then have a look at mySwimSpas. myDualZone SwimSpa is a 6 metre swim spa with an exercise or swimming pool at one end & massage seating in another separately heated section. myPlungePools range offers a body of water with less jets than a typical swim spa. A heat&cool pump will efficiently maintain the perfect temperature for use Summer & Winter. Swim spas are a very convenient fitness tool, easily accessible day & night for cardio training, stretching, resistance work to tone your body & even weight loss exercises and massage. Once your swim training is done, float over to the hydrotherapy seats to stimulate blood flow and encourage muscle recovery.
The powerful pumps on the swim spa create a current that allows you to swim in place without turning and swimming laps, the aquatic equivalent of a treadmill at the gym. Because of the position of our 4 swim jets, the current is wider than your body and deeper than your stroke, to support you steadily within the jet stream. When your workout’s done you can enjoy your swim spa just like any other spa by floating towards the spa end and choosing a jetted seat to massage your muscles that are aching the most.
If you don’t want to deal with cleaning your swim spa water, we have what you’re looking for. Our clearzone purification system inactivates 99.9% of bacteria whilst reducing chemical usage by up to 75% on conventional sanitation methods to save you time and money.
Here's some of our best selling swim spas for family, fitness & fun.
myPersonalTrainer is our best selling affordable family swim spa. It’s 4.5m long with massage spa jet seating at one end and a large open area at the other end which is the just the right size for the kids to jump around in the pool or for swim training and exercise against the 4 powerful swim jets.
MORE ABOUT PLUNGE POOLS
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 a 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 M5watersedge 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 $15,500 for our Plunge specification to around $40,000 for a fully customized 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.
