There are a variety of pros and cons to using a swim spa. If you are considering adding one to your home, you have to weigh the benefits against the cons. There are both advantages and disadvantages to having a private swimming pool. You have to consider the size of your yard, the depth of the pool, how often you will use it and how comfortable you are in it.
If you live in a small house with a shallow pool, you may find that a spa is too deep for your comfort level. If you swim in the deeper areas in your pool that is the only option. You may find that if you add a hot tub or sauna to the pool that it is too hot for you and that you end up getting burned easily. This can be remedied by adding more blankets around the pool, or taking off the covers so that the pool is not too warm. You may also want to take away the chemicals that are used in the hot tub because this can cause skin rashes.
Another benefit to spas is the flexibility of being able to use it for conditioning. Many people use hot tubs for body conditioning before heading out into town on days that are rainy. This can help to keep your body nice and moist for the entire trip. It can also help you to feel better after a long day of walking around in the rain. This is a great way to get around the city if you are weary and your feet and legs are hurting from walking around all day.
