In the New England area, a self-contained, portable swim spa doesn’t fall under the traditional classification of a swimming pool. This offers some advantages when it comes to local regulations. Each unit comes with a locking safety cover that meets all child safety requirements. In most towns, the only paperwork you’ll need is a construction permit for the pad or patio where the swim spa will sit. Typically, no additional permits are required for the actual placement of the swim spa itself. This makes the whole process much easier for homeowners looking to add this amenity to their property.
