Outdoor spa pools and indoor spa baths can create a fun and relaxing space in your home. New technology allows spas to become a home entertainment system, a piece of exercise equipment and your own health retreat. Find out more about the different spas available.
There are several different types of spas available, depending on your needs. Some common spas include:
Installing a spa is a serious consideration for any homeowner, given that it will involve a significant financial commitment. The lifestyle benefits have to be weighed against the initial outlay as well as the ongoing upkeep and maintenance costs. For more see spa installation.
Spas need different treatment than pools as the water is much hotter. The most common treatments for spas are chlorine and bromine. Spas require that the water has a residual amount of chlorine of two to three parts per million. Always check the levels of chlorine or bromine regularly when using the spa. After heavy use of the spa, or on a weekly basis, shock the spa with chlorine or bromine to ensure that the sanitising chemicals remain at the correct levels. You will also need to check the pH level and the total alkalinity regularly. For more see spa maintenance.
When hiring a spa builder to create your spa, there are some things to look out for. Firstly, the builder should be fully licensed and insured. Depending on the type of spa, they may also consult with other professionals such as a designer, engineer, plumber, concreter, electrician, fencer or a tiler or other finishing professional.
It is important that you are 100 percent clear on what you expect from your builder before signing any contracts or starting any work. The contract should include everything that needs to be done such as excavation, landscaping, lighting, fencing, filtration, and so forth.
One of the best ways to choose the right spa for your space is to visit a spa showroom. Spa showrooms stock an enormous array of spa pools, spa baths, indoor and outdoor spas to suit all budgets, tastes and spaces. For more information or to find a spa showroom in your areas see spa showrooms.
