So, you’re ready to find your outdoor swim spa! You’ve done your research, you understand all the benefits that come from owning one, and you even have your eye on a model or two.

You’ve located the perfect spot in your backyard for an in-ground swim spa that will give you plenty of room to entertain your family and friends while carving out a private retreat from prying eyes. Now, all that’s left to do is to wet test your swim spa.

Here are five reasons why:

Try Before You Buy

When it comes to purchasing big-ticket items, it’s always best to try before you buy. You wouldn’t buy a car or motorcycle without first giving it a test-drive. So, why should it be any different with a swim spa?

Knowing how much swim spas cost, and the time taken to maintain them, you’ll want to ensure that there are no regrets. The only way to truly experience all the benefits that a swim spa has to offer is by taking it for a wet test.

Get Your Swim On

Want to try out the various swim current systems? Head to your nearest spa dealer and take a swim test. A swim test will allow you to assess the swim current that best suits your exercise style and requirements.

Look out for consistent water distribution, adjustable current and flow speed, as well as a high rate of water circulation.

Check Current Speeds

Most swim spa current speeds average from 2.5 to 8 miles per hour. If you’re looking for a swim spa to give you long-term satisfaction, the water flow will be very important. Not enough flow, and you won’t get the desired workout.

Too much flow and you’ll have a turbulent swim, which is never fun! So, whilst in the swim spa regulate the water flow to match or challenge your abilities and increase the speed to build your endurance and strength.

Size Up the Seating

Some swim spas offer a compact unit for relaxing or hot-tubbing. When you’ve had enough swimming, simply slide over the wall into the hot tub area and relax in much warmer water.

This is an ideal time to feel the various seating configurations. Do you like the seating position? Is it the right height? Do you fit well, without floating too far off the jets?

Go Over the High-Tech Features

Another great reason for wet-testing a swim spa is to check out the latest available features and accessories. Some swim spas have their own built-in Bluetooth or compatible stereo systems, and the only way to see them in action is to wet-test them.
