No, swim spas don’t use more energy than swimming pools. Hydropool swim spas are built to be energy-smart, so they’re generally easier on your utility bill than a traditional swimming pool. Regular pools need a lot of energy to keep all that water circulating and warm, but Hydropool swim spas are different. They’ve got top-notch insulation and hold less water, which means they don’t need as much energy to keep the temperature just right. So, if you’re worried about energy costs, a Hydropool swim spa is usually a more efficient choice compared to a full-sized pool.
With a swim spa, we generally estimate that cost to be about $60 a month or $2 a day.
