Swim spas are the perfect pool for the perfect swim. Imagine being able to swim every day of the year at your own home! Swim spas are the ultimate backyard aquatic centre for fitness and fun. You can enjoy all the benefits of a larger pool using less space and at a lower cost. Leading the way in innovation for swim jet technology, customizable swim current, aqua channel shell design and aqua boost pump design, Hydropool swim spas are the ideal urban pool solution. Furthermore, Hydropool is leading the way with its innovation in self-cleaning technology, HydroWise Thermal Shield and luxury standards of design, comfort and massage.
Swim spas provide you with a means to swim, exercise or relax. They offer you the best of both worlds when it comes to hot tubs and pools as they have the ability to be enjoyed as a hot tub, but also are equipped with the water current to allow the user to swim on the spot.
Swim year round! Swim spas are bigger than a hot tub, yet more functional year-round without the expense of installing, operating and maintaining a full size pool. They are a perfect small pool for a refreshing dip in the summer or a personal workout centre in the winter. Swim spas generally take up a small footprint and are typically made of acrylic or fibreglass.
We offer three options for a swim spa at BonaVista. At our Leaside showroom in Toronto, we can help guide you to the best swim spa to meet your needs and budget.
Swim spas are designed around a swim current that is created by powerful jet pumps, which produce a flat and uplifting water flow to allow swimmers to move continuously up to 13km/hr without turning. The degree of resistance is variable and typically controlled by a dial so that swimmers can determine their own pace. Swim spas are fun and safe for all ages, shallow enough for most children and non–swimmers, yet deep enough to satisfy the most serious swimmer, jogger, water aerobics enthusiast and triathlete. Having a swim spa at home is ideal for those whose needs are centered on a healthy lifestyle. Swimming is a low impact exercise that can help improve cardiovascular health and the ability to perform this exercise in a swim spa, whether gently in place or more rigorously against a swift current, is convenient in many ways. This ‘mini-gym’ also has a built-in ability to relax afterwards in a jetted hydrotherapy seat (depending on type and model or the swim spa).

Swim spas are the perfect urban solution as they offer a big swim experience without taking up a lot of space. They are a solid alternative for you if a full-sized pool doesn’t fit in your space or if a larger pool is out of your budget. They come in various sizes, typically are between 3-4m wide and 5-7m long, and can be installed as a standalone unit or built into the ground. *Depending on the type of swim spa being installed, they are generally craned into position or built on-site from a kit. They can be installed indoors or out, above ground or in-ground and even in a basement or rooftop terrace. The options are endless.
Most swim spas come with a safety thermal cover, which helps reduce maintenance by protecting the water from debris and precipitation. When used regularly it can help to reduce operational cost. Further, they also allow the swim spa to meet most city bylaws for a water feature to be secured with a lockable cover. *As a result, the homeowner does not need to have a fence enclosure built around the unit, which is a requirement for most pool installations.
*To note, custom concrete swim spas are built in-ground and onsite and usually require a fence enclosure permit, as the custom dimensions of these vessels are typically larger than a prefabricated unit.
