Swim Spas Provide fun and fitness all year round

In Central New York, many homeowners have considered purchasing a hot tub for the cold winters, but also long for a pool in the warm summer months. An economic way to receive the benefits of both a pool and a spa is with a swim spa. Not only do you get a hot tub spacious enough for exercise, but you can also use your swim spa all year long. Especially adjusting spas temp to a refreshing 76-80 degrees.

Swim Spas by Jacuzzi

About
A swim spa is a large hot tub that offers a swim current for ultimate resistance swimming. Each varies in size, but average around 7 ft. x 14 ft. and 3-5 ft. deep. It can be used for exercises such as water aerobics, underwater running, strength training and swimming laps. Its unique size provides room to perform all four basic strokes. You can also use your swim spa for stress relief, relaxation and family fun.

Benefits
The swim spa provides functions that maximize its value. A standard spa can accommodate on average 4-6 people, whereas a swim spa can fit a dozen people comfortably. The compact space of a hot tub limits the amount of exercise options available, but in a swim spa you have plenty of space to perform your favorite exercise routine.

Features of the swim spa can be adjusted more easily than a pool. It is a smaller unit of water, allowing the temperature to change more rapidly at your control. You can even separate the temperature of the spa so that everyone is comfortable. When using the current you can regulate to a speed that best fits your needs. Increase the resistance for an intense cardio workout, or set the jets to low for a relaxing massage.

Installation
You can install a swim spa wherever the technical requirements can be accommodated: indoors, outdoors, above or in the ground. If you decide to move, the swim spa is a self-contained unit and can be transported to your new home. Swim spas are customizable by size, color, and light options. Plus they offer great features such as exercise equipment and stereo systems.

If you have been considering a pool or hot tub for your home and just can’t decide, consider exactly what you want to get out of your water oasis. If you’re looking to stay warm in the winter, cool in the summer, have exercising opportunities and have a great space for socializing then the swim spa could be a great fit for you.

Help the longevity of your pool with proper balancing

A number of factors determine the life of your pool liner.  The average life of an in-ground pool liner is about 8-10 years.  With good care, they can last much longer, even 20 years or more.  Assuming that the liner fits and was installed correctly, the most important factor is water chemistry.  Keep the water in balance and properly sanitized.  It might sound simple, but keep the pool clean!  Usually, your pool only needs a few minutes per day, but it is an important few minutes. THE most important factor that determines the life of your pool liner is water chemistry.

Pool Liner Radiant Smoothing Tarson Pools

 

Special coating protects vinyl liners that make them withstand the extreme sun, temperatures and constant exposure to treated water but you can help maintain your liner life by following these steps:

 

– Keep Proper pH levels: Proper pH levels are between 7.2 and 7.6, which should be tested daily. When your pH level drops below 7.0 this can cause your liner to discolor, swell and create unwanted wrinkles. Having a pool with a higher than 7.6 pH level accelerates the aging process of your pool.

– Careful with Chlorine: Chlorine abuse is major cause of liner degradation. Keeping your pool’s chlorine level too low will not kill enough of the bacteria in the water. While chlorine levels that are kept too high can attack your liner and cause bleaching.  It is important to note that if you are using granular chlorine dissolve it completely in a bucket of water first before putting it into your pool. Never allow chlorine to come in contact with your liner before it has been dissolved.  It is a best practice to run your circulating pump for a minimum of four hours after the addition of chemicals.

– Water Levels: Although your pool liner is coated to protect against the sun, it is extremely important to keep your pool full of water at all times. When the water level of your pool gets low it exposes your liner to the sun that can lead to drying out and shrinking.

– Keep your Liner Clean: Your pool will develop a “bathtub” ring above the water line. It is important to keep this area clean as these contaminants that include body oils, suntan lotions and airborne contaminants can get “baked” onto your liner causing it to crack and dry out. To clean this area you should talk with us about what products will work best for your liner. DO NOT use CLR or household cleaning products.

 – Chemicals: More is not better when it comes to chemicals. Do not add more chemicals than needed to your pool. This can cause your pool liner to disintegrate and also can be very expensive.
