Adding a Spa to Your Existing Pool

Apr 2, 2012 by

Topic: Spas

Chances are that you love your pool but you can’t help but wish that you had a spa as well, just so you had somewhere to relax, unwind and soothe those sore, aching muscles.  If your pool is lacking a spa, you can easily add one as it’s not as difficult as you might think.  Here’s what you need to know to get you started. For more information, speak to your pool builder or spa specialist.

Add a Spillover Spa


A spillover spa may be the easiest option when it comes to ways of adding a spa to your existing pool.  Spillover spas are placed directly adjacent to the existing pool and the spa and pool water actually mingle together, so that you only need one pump for both the pool and spa.  It also makes it a lot easier to maintain the water!  Spillover spas are relatively easy to install, taking only a few hours if they are pre plumbed and the shells are pre-formed.  You just excavate the hole for the spa, lay the foundation, place the unit, and then connect the plumbing to that of the main pool equipment.  The process is somewhat longer if you are having a concrete spillover spa installed but it is still relatively short.

Adding a Spa during Pool Renovations


If you’ve decided to do some renovations to really jazz up your pool, that’s the perfect time to add a brand new spa.  To do any renovations, the pool needs to emptied, so you can do any structural work that you need.  The existing pool can be re-jigged to add a spa within the main pool body itself, or you can actually extend the pool to include a spa area.  An alternate option if you don’t want to touch the existing pool shell itself is to install a separate spa unit directly beside your pool. This spa will be self contained though and thus you’ll need to install separate pumps, filtration equipment and so on, and keep an eye on completely different water.

Who Can Add a Spa To Your Existing Pool?


If you’ve decided that you must absolutely have a spa in your current pool, you will need to call in the professionals as it’s definitely not a job that you can do yourself!  You’ll need to work with an experienced pool builder, spa specialist and/or a pool renovations expert.  They’ll work with you throughout the entire process – designing the new spa and spa area to be added, costing the project for you, making any changes needed to your existing pool, designing new pool finishes and surrounds as needed, getting planning permissions, constructing the new spa and renovating the pool as necessary, and redoing the landscaping.
