We’re all familiar with hot tubs, a large tub filled with hot aerated water used for relaxation, hydrotherapy, warmth, and entertainment. Swim Spas offer all of these along with the options to swim and exercise! Swim Spas are moderately-sized jetted tubs in which you can stay in one place while swimming against the current created by the jets. With its health and exercise benefits, Swim Spas are a more versatile option than hot tubs. See for yourself!

There is also no “fire hydrant-like” air or water flow that can force you out of the swim lane
