There are a ton of different swim spas to choose from, and considering the investment they require, you’re going to want to make sure yours offers the exact swim experience and exercise opportunities that you’re looking for.

But what are those little details that distinguish one swim spa from another? To help you get a better idea of what to look for, we’ve compiled this easy guide to everything you need to know.

Shell Design

At a glance, most swim spas may seem quite similar, but there are nuances to each design that can determine whether a particular model is best suited for the swim experience you’re looking for. You should look at the width and depth of each design and choose one that best fits those who will be swimming in it. To help narrow down the ideal swim spa model for you, view the different Hydropool Swim Spa collections, which include the Aquatic Collection, Executive Collection, and Play Collection.


The best swim spa for you is going to be the one that’s tailored to what you’re planning on using it for. Is your swim spa strictly for swimming exercise? Do you want to enjoy time with your family in it? Are you looking to couple your workouts with some rest and relaxation?

The answers to all of these questions are important to know when choosing your swim spa.


When it comes to getting the most out of your swimming workouts in your swim spa, ensuring that you have the proper jets is vital. Make sure that the model you choose has jets that offer a consistent flow that isn’t interrupted by any turbulence so you can focus solely on your swim experience.

Pump and Plumbing

You can have the perfect jets for your personal swim experience, but if the pump isn’t providing enough strength or your current plumbing can’t support the water flow you’re looking for, you’re not going to get what you want out of your swim spa.

Brand Reputation

There’s a wealth of information about every brand of swim spa available, and one of the best ways to determine which one is best for you is to look that information up. When it comes to great brand reputation, Hydropool Swim Spas rank among the top, so you know you can feel confident about investing in one for you and your family.

Options for Customization

You want to have a wide range of resistance options for your swim spa so that it can be useful to anyone who wants to enjoy it. Customization is also important for you to continue to get the results from your exercise that you’re looking for.

If you progress in your workouts to the point where the resistance isn’t enough for you, then that defeats the purpose of your swim spa.
