If members of your family are not cold weather enthusiasts, or if your backyard or patio area is not suitable for a hot tub installation, then an indoor location for your swim spa may be your best or only choice. You may wish to create an exercise / swim spa area in your home, or install your swim spa in a conservatory or an outdoor room adjoining your home.
Indoor installations not only add a unique look and appeal to your home, they provide the privacy and controlled climate to ensure that the use and enjoyment of your swim spa is maximized. If you should choose an indoor location please make sure you read our recommendations.
For a variety of reasons, outdoor locations are a far more popular choice. Some of the reasons for an outdoor swim spa include:
• If you are doing any excavating, contact your local gas, and electric company to ensure that there are no underground lines or pipes.
• Locate the swim spa, where practical, within close distance of a door to the house to maximize potential winter use.
• Ensure that all swim spa support equipment is easily accessible and protected from the elements.
The swim spa support equipment is designed for indoor (out of the direct elements) use. Your Hydropool swim spa is equipped with a factory-installed cabinet where the equipment will be adequately protected. If the swim spa is shipped without a cabinet, your custom cabinet or other structure must be designed to supply protection for the swim spa support equipment, but still designed in a manner to ensure adequate ventilation.
Where the swim spa is a “stand-alone” above-ground installation we recommend the installation of a level concrete pad of at least 10-15 cm of poured concrete with a lower layer of 10-15 cm of crushed stones. The concrete base should be at least 15cm larger than the swim spa on 3 sides and 1 metre larger where the access steps will be palced.
All electrical wiring must be completed by a qualified electrician in accordance with local codes and regulations before installation of any of our hot tubs. Hydropool’s swim spas require a 40 amp breaker and our DTFX range require an additional 20 amp. A full wiring diagram and recommendations for all our models are available from our showroom, please ask you salesman for full details.
