Innovative pool designs are part of any modern home. If you are going to build a swimming pool, character and personality should be part of the package.
When it comes to adding a spa, Dolphin Pools & Spas recommends using brands which use less plumbing. These help in both keeping construction costs as well as operating costs down.
Health and Fitness
There are plenty of types of spas, and nowadays, spas and swimming pools come hand in hand. After taking a dip in the pool, you go on over to the spa and take a relaxing soak in the water jets. A paired pool and spa is almost standard in every modern construction.
One reason for this is that it allows the owner flexibility on whether to indulge in invigorating laps in the pool or to take a relaxing soak. Swimming is one of the best exercises for people of all ages, while a spa is a healthy appliance for everyone’s enjoyment.
Building a Spa with the Pool
The spa can be an investment in itself. However, if you want to save on the construction, it is best to have it installed at the same time as the pool. A portable spa can cost from $2,000 to $12,000, while an in-ground spa costs between $15,000 and $20,000.
When building an in-ground spa at the same time as the pool, other associated costs are shared between the cost of the pool and spa. Another advantage of an in-ground spa is that you can design it according to your fancy.
It can also work well with the landscaping, as well as be integrated with the patio. It also requires a professional installer.
A portable spa is typically an above-ground installation which requires only requires plumbing and an electrical connection for the motor. A portable spa does not integrate well with a pool, and it may be necessary to place it some distance from the pool.
A pool and spa combination is great for socializing with friends. It is also great for your health. A spa makes a wonderful addition to any pool.
