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.

They were very efficient and the door looks terrific.
Vicki Bierschbach
Frank and Ruben did a great job installing a wonderful, free-standing pergola in our backyard. They were VERY careful to work around existing vegetation and their commitment to detail in their work was obvious. Thanks Dreamstyle.
Ray Nance
They were quick, clean, professional, funny, friendly. They explained how our windows work and we were very happy with what they did!
Jennifer Rios
Excellent service. Alan was sweet. Even hugged me when it was done. I knew he treated my kitchen like his own. I would definitely recommend using them.
Donna Martin
The crew that delivered our hydrotherapy tub executed the install flawlessly. I believe we found both in Dreamstyle.
