Hot Tubs & Swim Spas: What’s the Difference Between the Two?

Difference Between Hot Tubs & Swim Spas New MexicoIs the yard of your New Mexico home too limited to accommodate a large swimming pool, but you’d still like to add a hot tub or swim spa? If so, it’s good to be sure of the differences between the two so you know which would work best for your home, preferences, and budget.

Hot Tub vs. Swim Spa

A hot tub typically seats a handful of adults and features warm, circulating water and pulsing jets. A swim spa, on the other hand, is slightly larger in size than a hot tub and creates a strong current that allows a person to swim while remaining in the same spot. What really differentiates the two is how you plan on using them.

Relaxation vs. Recreation

Hot tubs are generally more popular for relaxing and creating a spot in your yard for socialization. Because you sit in a hot tub and soak, these fixtures often serve as a therapeutic escape for the owner(s), similar to soaking in a bathtub. Swim spas, however, are designed more for exercise. If you don’t have the yard space for a full-size pool but would still like to swim laps, then a swim spa is the space-saving alternative.

If you’re interested in adding either a hot tub or swim spa to the deck or patio of your New Mexico home, then contact Dreamstyle Remodeling today. We’d be happy to discuss which option is right for you and schedule a time to expertly install it at your home.

dreamstyle reviews
Jared, Clint and Paul came to the house and were very professional and polite. They installed our pellet stove and explained everything to us. We asked them about about an existing wood stove and they gave us some good suggestions for next year. They cleaned up after themselves so there was nothing for us to...
Mary Hall
Excellent workmanship, very pleased with tile and new shower. Geraldo very pleasant to have in home and deal with. Resolved minor punch list items. Having more remodel work done based on this project.
Robert Meyers
Contracted for sunroom addition. Sales rep was Joe Smith and all installers were very professional. Very impressed with attention to detail and making sure the jobsite was left clean.
Stella Stiver
Very happy with our re-stucco done in early May. Prep and color coat scheduling done well in advance. Crew arrived on time and ready to work!
