What Is the Cost of Installing a Swim Spa?

A swim spa is a combination of a hot tub and a pool but is far more compact in its size. Swim spas also provide hydrotherapeutic benefits and allow you to exercise simultaneously. Below is a list of important points to remember before you buy.

How Much Does It Cost To Install A Swim Spa?

A swim spa’s cost can vary depending on its features, size and capabilities. The cost of these spas ranges from 8,000 to 30,000 dollars and is a great addition to any home. The cost to install a spa depends on the location you choose and what type of surface you have. For instance, a concrete pad as a sturdy surface will cost you a few thousand dollars, but it’s worth it when larger, heavier swim spas are in question. A concrete pad is also a foundation that will ensure your spa’s safety and security for many years to come.

Additional costs within the installation process of a swim spa include delivery, transportation, and electrical work.

Delivery of your spa is another thing to keep in mind, especially since a crane may be required in many situations. For example, most swim spas need to be delivered in this manner due to their weight and size. Depending on your location, a crane rental costs anywhere from 500 to 1,500 dollars.

When it comes to electrical work, you should always hire a licensed electrician. When dealing with water and electricity together, you must find a reputable individual or company to provide this service for you. This will usually run between 800 and 1,500 dollars, depending on where you live and other factors.

It is important to remember that each item will have a different installation cost depending on the spa type, including the model’s size, shape, weight and other features. These things also vary depending on location, so it’s important to inquire about costs for your specific area.

What Does It Cost To Maintain A Swim Spa?

When it comes to the ongoing costs of maintaining a swim spa, there are some things you should keep in mind. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect, from the hydro costs for heating and running your spa year-round to maintaining the proper pH levels.

Your hydro bill will slightly increase if you have a swim spa, just as it would with any other device that requires electricity. The type of insulation that your spa has will affect the cost. Buying a cover that is of good quality and fits your spa properly will help with this. You can typically expect to have around one dollar added to your hydro bill each day. This also depends on use and how often your cover is on to keep the heat in.

Many aspects affect the overall cost, and there are many things you can do to reduce this rate. Such as, but not limited to, keeping your cover on whenever it is not in use and not running your spa for extended periods of time without using it.

Another factor that determines any ongoing or future costs would be the warranty for your specific swim spa. Knowing what the warranty covers will save you money in the long run. A 10/5/3 warranty covers Hydropool swimming spas. This means that the warranty covers 10 years for Structure, 5 years for Shell Surface, and 3 years for Plumbing and Mechanical Components. Knowing this will help you in case of any damages or issues, as you won’t need to pay out of pocket if something happens within that timeframe. 

It is important in many cases to be informed about any ongoing costs associated with your swim spa as well as the initial costs. When it comes to Hydropool’s warranty on all spas, many aspects will be covered for years to come.
