How are Swim Spas Heated?

How are Swim Spas Heated?

If you’re considering installing a swim spa on your property you may have some questions about how they work, how much they cost to run or how are swim spas heated.  For those who aren’t familiar with swim spas, an easy explanation is that they are a compact tank of water that generates a powerful current to swim against.  This allows the swimmer to stay in place while practicing their stroke and means they never reach the end of the tank and have to turn around as they would while swimming laps in a regular pool.  Besides the compact size of the swim spa, there is the added bonus of being able to use it like a hot tub by simply turning up the water temperature.  Some swim spas even have a separate tank to allow swimming and hot tubbing to take place at the same time.
