Swim Spas: More than Just Swimming

Think Swim Spas are just for swimming? Think again! The size and features on a Swim Spa make them so versatile, that they’re not just for the fitness fanatics!

Have a flick through any Swim Spa brochure and you’ll be greeted with lots of pictures of athletes and swimmers using the Swim Spa as part of their training regime – and they’re not wrong! Swim Spas offer a perfect alternative to installing a full-sized pool into your back garden. If you don’t have Olympic swimming aspirations and you’re wondering if a Swim Spa is worth the investment, read on to see why Swim Spas are for more than just swimming!

 

Socialising

If you have a large family or lots of friends, there is no better excuse to get everyone together than a soak in the swim spa! Our Coast Spas Wellness Party Swim Spa has seating for up to 8 adults together, or if you wanted to allow the kids room to play in the spa with the adults relaxing, our Coast Spas Wellness IV features a self-contained hot tub joined to the Swim Spa together in one unit!

 

XL Hot Tub

What’s better than a standard hot tub? A bigger one of course! Swim Spas can come with all the lighting, jets, and temperature control that a hot tub can, bringing with it all the health and relaxation benefits you can get from a hot tub. Some Swim Spas also feature lounger seating, so you can use your Swim Spa for relaxation just like a Hot Tub.

 

Resistance training

If swimming isn’t quite your thing, but you still want to use your Swim Spa for fitness, resistance training works excellently. By using the resistance of the water (turning the jets on will increase the resistance), you can tailor your workout to suit you! Below are just a few examples of exercises that work well in a Swim Spa:

Jogging on the Spot: A brilliant exercise for warming up, while working your leg muscles.

Bicycle Kick: Put your back against the wall and hold the top lip of the swim spa. Bring your legs up just under the surface of the water and move them in a circular motion, as if you were pedalling a bike. Keep pedalling for 1-2 minutes for a great lower ab and leg workout.

Chest Flys: Starting in a lunge position (to ensure your arms are just under the surface of the water), place your arms straight out in front of you with your palms touching. Bring your arms out to the side, keeping them straight. Return to the starting position and repeat 10-15 times for a killer chest and arm exercise.

If you prefer to use exercise equipment in your workout, there is a wide range of products available. From exercise bikes and treadmills to poles and trampolines, Award Leisure stock products that will take your workout to the next level.

Are Chlorine tablets Safe for my Hot Tub?

Chlorine tablets, regardless of brand, all contain a chemical called Trichloroisocyanuric acid (or Trichlor for short). When used in an acrylic Hot Tub, it can cause severe damage to the shell – if the thermal cover isn’t removed for a few days to vent the gases given off by the tablet, severe bleaching of the plastic occurs.

We advise that if you wish to use a tablet form of Hot Tub sanitation, Bromine is the recommended option; either as a Frog Cartridge or a Bromine Tablet. However, we do stock Chlorine tablets for customers that own LayZ Spas, swimming pools, or other non-acrylic spas. If you still wish to use Chlorine to sanitise your spa, we do stock Spamate Chlorine granules which do not contain Trichlor and are safe to use in acrylic spas.

Award Leisure strongly advise that Trichlor is not used with any Coast Spa, and Coast Spas themselves agree. Use of the tablet is quite apparent and obvious to detect and will also not be covered by your warranty.

Where can I Buy a Hot Tub in 2019?

In the age of Social Media trendsetters and YouTube tutorials for just about anything, the internet is a vast wealth of collective knowledge and experiences, and absolutely should not be underestimated for its usefulness in finding something new and learning about it – so should you use it to buy a Hot Tub?

 

The short answer is – yes! Nothing screams ‘convenience’ more than searching for a luxury Hot Tub from the comfort of your sofa, without having to travel to your local Hot Tub Showroom and hope they have something suitable for you. So where should you go on the internet to find a Hot Tub?

 

Finding the right online Hot Tub Company

It is SUPER important that you choose a reputable company if you are going to buy a Hot Tub from the internet. There are many companies operating solely online that are less than scrupulous, luring customers in with what looks like a ‘good’ deal and a warranty that seems too good to be true – and that’s because in most cases, it is. Most of these companies can offer these incredible deals because they buy cheap spas that break down soon after purchase and have no intention of staying in business long enough to honour any warranty. Sound like a nightmare? Fear not! There are good guys out there selling Hot Tubs on the internet, we promise!

 

The best way to go about choosing a Hot Tub company to buy from is to not get sucked in by pretty pictures of Hot Tubs – study the company first. Look at how long they have been in business, which should give you a pretty good indication of how capable they will be to honour any warranty they offer. Another great feature to look out for is whether the company install and service their Hot Tubs themselves, or contract it out to a third party; if they have their own dedicated service team, it is likely that the company know their Hot Tubs well, and will be able to help you with any issue that you may encounter!

Finding a good Hot Tub Showroom

It’s no secret that Hot Tubs are expensive. They are a luxury product for a reason, and for most households, they are a pretty major investment which requires a lot of research. The internet is great for ordering an emergency 5 kilo bag of gummy bears (trust me, they’re out there), but most people would be more hesitant to order thousands of pounds worth of a Hot Tub without first seeing the model in a showroom and learning as much as they could from an experienced salesperson. If this sounds like you, then a good old-fashioned showroom is the way to go!
