10 top reasons to buy a swim spa



Swim spas are becoming more and more popular in the UK as people search for easier and cheaper ways to have a swimming pool in their garden. Being the UK’s largest Jacuzzi® retailer, we do speak to a lot of customers about swim spas, and they all buy for different reasons. So, we thought we would put together a guide showing the top 10 reasons to buy a swim spa.


Offering the versatility of both a swimming pool and a hot tub, you can use a swim spa for both exercise and relaxation. Swim endlessly or do aqua aerobics against the swim jets, and then relax and recover in the hydrotherapy seats to soothe your muscles. Our range of Jacuzzi® swim spas include Jacuzzi®’s patented jet technology, ensuring you get the best hydrotherapy massage on the market. 


Swim spas are a brilliant way to work out with having to go down to your local pool. Swimming improves cardiovascular health, build strength and endurance, and burn calories.  Being low impact, exercising in a swim spa is great for recovering injuries, as well as offering a gentler way of building muscle with aqua aerobics.

Year-round use

Not just for summer, swim spas are designed to be used year-round. Even in colder months, the swim spa temperature can be adjusted to give you a comfortable swim and even offer a warm and relaxing spot to enjoy your garden. This is one of the main reasons our customers love swim spas as permanent swimming pools are usually closed down for the winter. 



The recovery seats in a Jacuzzi® Swim Spa are designed to provide targeted hydrotherapy, which uses Jacuzzi® patented jets to relieve pain and improve muscle recovery. The combination of warm water, massage jets, and buoyancy can help reduce stress, improve circulation, and soothe sore muscles.


A traditional swimming pool gives you one option: swim laps. No option to increase resistance for aqua aerobics, no endless swim, no flexibility on speed… whereas swim spas can be customised to meet your specific needs. Choose the perfect swim speed for you, improve and monitor your fitness, and adjust swim jet settings to suit your swim style. Whether you are just wanting to improve your fitness or are training for your next triathlon, Jacuzzi® Swim Spas are great for everyone at every age.

Easy maintenance

As we’ve touched on previously, swim spas are super easy to maintain.  With fewer chemicals needed than a traditional pool, easy-to-replace filters and no pump room, keeping the water of your swim spa clean and safe is a breeze.

Fun for the whole family

Swim spas are a great way to spend time with family and friends, and they're perfect for kids and adults of all ages. Whether you're swimming, relaxing, or playing games, a swim spa can provide hours of fun and enjoyment for everyone.


Swim spas aren’t just for swimming either! Entertain guests, have fun with the kids or host a pool party! With plenty of space for multiple people to swim, soak, or relax together, they're great a great focal point of your garden and offer a fun and relaxing atmosphere for enjoying quality time with loved ones.


Want a pool but don't want to give up loads of garden space? Swim spas are a fabulous alternative.  Taking up less space than a traditional swimming pool, swim spas are perfect for those with smaller gardens with not quite enough space for a swimming pool. Jacuzzi® Swim Spas are also a great option if want to avoid the higher installation and maintenance costs as swim spa water is treated just like a hot tub, so you won’t need the pump room!

Increased home value

Adding a swim spa to your home can increase its value and make it more attractive to potential buyers if you decide to sell. Although, most of our customers love their swim spa so much, they decide to take it with them to their new home!
