What is a Self-Cleaning Swim Spa?

If you have been considering the idea of purchasing a swim spa, you may have heard of the term ‘self-cleaning’ but are unsure of exactly what that means. Hydropool self-cleaning swim spas allow you to enjoy your time relaxing more and not having to worry about vacuuming, skimming and cleaning the water.

When shopping for a swim spa, it is important to keep in mind that not all models or manufacturers are made with Hydropool’s state-of-the-art self-cleaning options. Don’t assume that your model will have this feature and make sure to ask your dealer what type of maintenance and cleaning will be involved. High-quality swim spas are easier to clean than lower-quality models. When considering the overall cost of your swim spa, factor in the time that you will save from not having to clean it and be able to enjoy it anytime you wish.
