Whether you are a seasoned athlete, a daily gym-goer, a family looking for year-long water fun, or looking to water therapy as a form of recovery, having a swim spa at home is a great way to do it all. But we know making the choice to invest in a spa may seem difficult–where do you even begin? Have no fear, Aqua Leisure Pools and Spas is here to help you!

The Basics of Buying a Swim Spa

When it comes to buying your own swim spa, you may be overwhelmed with all the extras available to you. But in reality, there are only a few things you absolutely need to consider when purchasing your spa. These include:

  • Experience
  • Fitness vs. Fun
  • Design
  • Reputation
  • Installation
  • Maintenance


Of course, you want any swim spa to meet your individual needs and expectations. But with so many models on the market, how do you know the experience you’re looking for is going to be met?

There are a few ways to evaluate this. The first is the design of the water pump. This is important to your spa buying decision because if your pump doesn’t have enough power, the resistance created may not meet your physical needs.

The next is the jet system. If the jet system is a bit rocky, your water current will be a bit more aggressive than you were hoping for. The goal is a flat current that is still powerful.

The third element for user experience is the ability to customize. If you can alter the resistance, you’ll be able to amp up or slow down your water exercise.

The last feature is the overall design of the spa. Depending on what your daily usage will be, you’ll want to consider depth, stairs, and seats. They can either be useful or block you from reaching the results you desire.

Fitness Vs. Fun

When many of us think about swim spas, we think we need to pick between fitness or fun. The reality is that you don’t have to pick one or the other.

A swim spa by Aqua Leisure Pools and Spas gives you the versatility needed to create a home gym, a massage center, or an afternoon dip in the pool.


At the end of the day, the model of your swim spa should be able to fulfill all of your unique needs. This includes being comfortable! It’s important that you try the seats in your spa. If the shape, size, or angle of any of the seats is off, it may not be the spa for you.

Not only should it be comfortable, but it should also be functional. Do you need a ladder to step into the spa? Is there an area where you can place a drink, your phone, and exercise equipment? Is there enough lighting? These may seem like small things, but in reality, they can make a difference in the overall user experience.


This is a no-brainer, but important to consider. When purchasing a swim spa, you need to consider it like any other large purchase. How much are you willing to put in, and what are you hoping to get out of it long-term?

Many may think that by going with lesser brands, they may still get the same experience. However, we implore you to check out our selection of highly reputable spas. We carry Marquis and TidalFit Swim Spas, so you know when you buy Aqua Leisure, you are buying the best!


While it’s easy to get caught up in the end result, it’s important to remember that before the swim spa can be used, it has to be installed. Many of us may have an idea of where we want our spa and how we want it to look. But it takes a professional eye to ensure that your new home oasis is installed correctly to avoid complications in the future.

At Aqua Leisure Pools and Spas, you don’t have to worry about installation. Our pool and swim spa professionals will work with you to make sure your new spa is correctly installed.
