There are not many people that complain about having too much room in their homes, and many look forward to being able to put an addition when possible. It may just be a want for some extra space that can be used as a getaway from the rest of the house. You may be considering a sun room and even expanding its use by having a swim spa built into it.
There is no doubt that this is an exciting combination, and provides a lot of advantages by making good use of the extra space as well as increasing healthy activity for the entire family.
If you have decided that this duo may be a great addition to your lifestyle, then it means you now have lots of decisions ahead of you. Before making any major decisions about your sun room, you may want to focus on the swim spa first. Here are a few things to consider for adding a swim spa.
The priority will be making sure that you are going to invest in a quality unit that is from a known and trusted brand name, such as Hydropool.
Choose According to Purpose
Most quality swim spas come with multiple features that meet many uses. Some want to use a swim spa for light exercise and just enjoy relaxing in a body of water. Others are intent on using water as their main means of exercise, while others want it mainly for frolicking around in the water and having fun. There is no reason why you can't enjoy all of these activities with any swim spa, but some are better suited for specific needs than others.
Size and Shape
You are going to want to consider two aspects here. What size would best fit the main purpose of why you are buying the unit? And what is an appropriate size that would work well with the sun room you are considering?
These water units come in many sizes and shapes. The AquaSport or AquaTrainer brands are available in sizes ranging from 14 ft to 19ft. When it comes to shapes, there are plenty to choose from in the Bespoke line of swim spas.
In Ground, Above Ground, or Semi
If you are in the situation where you are having your swim spa installed first, you are going to have to consider your sun room construction. Then, you have the choice of whether you want to have this water unit installed in ground, above ground, or partially sunken.
There will be many additional decisions to be made, but these are the major ones that have to be made first so that you can make proper considerations for your sun room.
Your Sun Room Decisions
While you may be thinking about utilizing your sun room as your pool enclosure, do take some time to give this some extra thought. You may not be aware that there are some additional and equally good choices for other types of pool enclosures. The advantage of using a sun room may be that you don't have to step out of your home to get access to your swim spa. The disadvantage is if you were planning on using your sun room for other uses like extra seating for entertaining, or for green housing, then you are dedicating some of the space that may have been used for this towards your water unit. There are some big decisions to be made for the housing of your swim spa, but the great news is there are lots of options ahead of you, and you are sure to find the perfect solution for you.
