Swim Spas NZ - Sapphire Spas

A swim spa that offers so much more!

Swim Spas are very large spas that provide many benefits. They are like a compact swimming pool you can use year-round!

In a way, a Swim Spa is like a home gym, but with a hydrotherapy massage facility at the end. You can walk, run, or swim against the jets, which are fully adjustable to suit all fitness levels.

Or you can simply relax, unwind, and soothe tired muscles.
It is equipped with a powerful water current that lets you swim continuously against the flow, providing a similar experience to swimming in a traditional lap pool

Why Buy A Swim Spa

Another great benefit is that they can be taken with you when you move. It doesn’t matter if you rent or own a home you plan to sell at some point, it’s an investment that moves with you.

Additionally, they’re easier to maintain and take up less space than a pool. Plus, they’re way cheaper and don’t require digging into the ground!

Not only does swimming in a swim spa provide a low-impact, full-body workout but the hydrotherapy jet pumps also provide soothing massages. The combination of water jets and warm water helps to relax muscles, relieve stress, improve circulation, and reduce joint pain.

Swim Spa or Swimming Pool

If you’re having a hard time deciding whether to buy a swim spa or a traditional swimming pool, consider the pros and cons of both and weigh up which one gives you more of what you want.
Swimming pool
A swimming pool is great for cooling down when it's hot. They're generally larger than swim spas, so they're a great way to swim, splash and play. You also have more options about how you want your pool to look, with a wide range of colours and sizes to choose from.
Swim spa
A swim spa is a more versatile option than a traditional swimming pool, because you can swim in it, using the powerful jets as resistance, but you can also receive a relaxing hydrotherapy massage, or just sit in the beautiful warm water and enjoy the experience. Swim spas are also relatively easy to install, don't take up as much space, and can be enjoyed all year round. Best of all they offer a no-dig alternative to swimming and you can take them with you if you move. them
