For the majority of families, winter is a time to stay indoors, cosy up by the fire and avoid going outside as much as possible. The cold weather is enough to put people off going for a walk or using their garden, but if you have a swim spa in winter then this is a real game-changer. Knowing you can go outside and embrace the fresh air without being freezing cold is definitely a benefit.
Having Difficulty Deciding the Right Swim Spa for Your Home?
Can You Use a Swim Spa in the Winter?
It isn’t uncommon for people to question whether they can use their swim spa or hot tub during the winter months but, you most definitely can. They aren’t just there to enjoy on a nice warm and clear day, some say that they are even more enjoyable in the winter. They are built for both cold and hot climates.
If you’re looking to make the most of your hot tub or swim spa in winter, Hydropool Surrey has laid out the best ways to do so.
Staying active in winter
There is no denying that finding some inspiration to stay active during the winter months can be really difficult. Leaving your warm house to go to the gym, or on a run, is often the last thing you want to do.
Thankfully, having a swim spa in winter months makes exercise much more inviting. You have a warm way to exercise right in your back garden, so there really are no excuses. Of course, it is a really fun way to stay active too, so that always helps.
Making time for family time
As the mornings and evenings get darker, it is hard to squeeze in some family time around work and school. It is easy to become detached over the winter months and you will probably miss spending time together, especially after the Christmas period.
Using your swim spa in winter is a great way to get everyone together. Your children can get some fresh air whilst staying warm and you can spend some real quality time together.
Ensuring you get in some self-care
Life can be crazy at times and you are often the first person you stop taking care of when everyone else around you needs support. Taking some time out of your day to use the swim spa will provide you with the self-care you really need. Whether you want to get some exercise in, or just relax in your jetted swim spa, it really can make a huge difference. This ‘you time’ can help you to feel much happier in general throughout the long dark winter months.
Can be used year-round
With an outdoor pool, these can be incredibly difficult to use in the winter months and most of the time, can only be used in warm weather. However, with a swim spa, they are easy and fast to heat up and can be used whenever you want – no matter the weather, and you really can use it every day if you wish.
Also, by understanding the usage costs of a swim spa compared to a swimming pool, this will make your mind up for you. Swim spa maintenance in winter is not half the nightmare as feared. Therefore the combination of insulation, energy efficiency and low maintenance make swim spas ideal for anyone looking to enjoy their winter.
Using your swim spa in winter
Your swim spa really isn’t just for the summer months and taking into consideration everything mentioned above, it is clear to see why some people prefer theirs in the winter. Of course, ensuring you take care of your swim spa correctly over winter months is essential to enjoying it but, thankfully, with a high-quality and low maintenance Hydropool swim spa, this is easy to do.
