Pick the right spot for your swim spa
It’s important to select the right location in your garden for your swim spa as once it is installed it is extremely difficult to move it to a different location.
There are a number of things to consider when selecting the right spot for your swim spa. These include whether the area is overlooked and if you want some privacy, how far away the location is from the house and if you want a long walk to use it, and whether there is access to a suitable power supply.
What surface should my swim spa be placed on?
You’ll need to ensure that the surface you want to put the swim spa is flat and sturdy.
It is recommended that you place the spa on a concrete pad which is at least 6 inches thick. However, you can also have them installed on wooden deck – you just need to ensure that it is strong enough to bear the load of the swim spa and its water. We’d suggest that if you’re placing it on decking that you seem professional help from a contractor.
Making a feature of your swim spa
If you’re planning your swim spa in the garden, you may want to make the surrounding area look aesthetically pleasing and in-keeping with the landscape in your outside space.
Think about adding some flower beds or pots around the swim spa to create a focal point and build some greenery around it edges of it. You can also create some shading and privacy by strategically planting some tall bushes which will screen the swim spa from neighbours.
You could even introduce some lighting to create a relaxing ambiance. Festoon lights or fairy lights often look effective and look amazing during night-time swims or soaks.
Adding a pergola over the top of the swim spa could also be an attractive and practical addition, meaning that you can use the swim spa in all weathers, even if it is raining!
