How to Add A Spa To Your Existing Pool
Many homeowners who already own a pool would love to add a spa but worry about the cost and hassle. There is good news — adding a spa to an existing pool is not as difficult or as expensive as you may think. There are a lot of options which can help to make your spa as unique as you want.
Here are the common questions most pool owners want to know:
Can I use the same water system for both my existing pool and the new spa?
Yes, you can use the same water system for both your pool and spa. It is less expensive to use one water heater, filter and pump for both. Many pool owners find adding a multi-function control system is a good investment because it will allow you to control the spa and the pool independently.
Will I need to change the way I use and monitor pool chemicals with the new spa?
One of the best advantages of sharing the water between a spa and a pool is that this will allow you to cut down on maintenance time. Unlike separate systems where owners must keep track of the chemical levels and switch the water every few months, a spa which shares water from a pool needs no additional chemical maintenance. Pool owners just need to continue doing the same pool maintenance.
What options for a new spa are available for me to choose?
There are tons of options available for pool owners who want to add a spa. Pool owners can hire a local spa expert to construct a custom spa to match the look of their pool and to give them all the options they could ever want. Some of these choices include:
Lighting- Most spas have at least one underwater light, but there is no reason you can't have more. Many spa owners love the look of multiple LED color-changing underwater lights to create a special mood at night.
Type and number of jets- The number of jets and type of jets will affect how you use your spa. Most spas contain five or more jets and a variety of jet types. Massaging and swirling jets are among the most popular.
Bubbling system- A bubbling system increases the amount of water which is pushed through a spa's jets. This creates a more relaxing feel.
Seating options- There are many spa seating options available. Some spa owners insist on a lounge seat where they can spread out. Others want deep or shallow set seats. Shallower seats are cooler while a deep seat offers a warmer, full-body soak.
