Indoor Swim Spa Installation
An Endless Pools swim spa is just about as good as it gets when it comes to at home exercise. The Colorado weather isn’t always ideal for outdoor aquatic exercise. So, what better place to have your swim spa than indoors where you can comfortably use it year round.
Adding a swim spa to your home gym paradies isn’t as complicated as it may seem. Some may choose to use an existing sunroom or enclosed patio. Some may use an area of the basement they want to convert into their own home gym. Others may add a room onto their home just for the spa. No matter where you choose to put your Endless Pools swim spa there are a few things to consider first.
The floor you place your spa on needs to be able to support the weight of the spa plus the water that fills it. A concrete slab would be the ideal scenario, but a wood floor with proper support will also work just fine. If you are going to close in a patio, make sure the floor you are placing the spa on is level. If not, it will need to be leveled prior to construction.You will also want to consider your floor covering. Stained concrete, ceramic tile and other water resistant coverings will be best since your floor will end up getting at least some water on it as you get in and out of your spa.
Typical drywall doesn’t stand up well to moisture and can be subject to mold and mildew. Green board drywall that is designed for bathrooms would be best. You can paint it with a mold and mildew resistant paint. This will keep your walls in great shape, in spite of the extra moisture from the swim spa.
This may be obvious, but the location of your spa inside the room is important. You want to make sure the room is large enough to place your spa where you are able to access all panels easily for general maintenance or repair. Nothing is worse than needing room to work and having none.
Most swim spas require special outlets, so you will want to have an electrician check the voltage coming into the room and add a new outlet if necessary.
The last thing to consider is HVAC. Air flow is very important in an enclosed area that will have a higher level of humidity to deal with. An additional vent may be needed in your swim spa room.
