Thinking about getting a swim spa? If you are, you may be considering renovating an unused screened-in porch or even remodeling your home to create the perfect swim spa area. However, there are a few reasons why installing your swim spa outdoors is the right move. Outdoor swim spas can be more beneficial than those inside, even if they’re in a space with a lot of windows and natural light. Here are some of the benefits to having your swim spa outside.
Spend Time (But Not Too Much Time) in the Sunlight
Your body actually needs sunlight to create vitamin D. If you spend most of your time indoors, it’s possible you’re not getting enough of it, or even developing a deficiency in vitamin D. Why not get the exposure to sunlight you need while swimming in your swim spa? Just be sure to put on water-resistant sunscreen before you do. You don’t want to get sunburnt. While sunscreen can block some of the rays that help your body create vitamin D, it doesn’t block so much that the body can’t make some of the vitamins you need.
Being outdoors in the sunlight can also be good for your emotional state. Some people simply feel happier when they spend some time outdoors. In today’s world, it seems like we spend a lot of time inside for work and even play. Why not get outdoors instead? If you’re afraid of missing something, you can even use your phone or tablet while in the spa part of your swim spa, though you might want to hold it off to the side if you’re concerned about dropping it.
Enjoy the Breeze
Having your swim spa outside also means you’ll get to enjoy the breeze. This can be nice after swimming or exercising. It can help you cool down after a workout, which is always nice. Not to mention the calming effects of a warm breeze and the soothing sounds of nature. It’s a win-win!
No Major Renovation Is Required
While installing in-ground swim spas does involve digging a hole and preparing the space to hold the weight, it’s not as involved as renovating an indoor space. Putting a swim spa inside, even if you’re creating an enclosed porch area for it, still involves more work, more time, and more cost.
It’s More Relaxing
While you will likely spend time in the swim spa exercising, you’ll also use it to relax. Do you really want to do that indoors? Image your hot tub situated in the boring, plain space of your garage. How relaxing is that? Putting your swim spa outside means you can soak in the warmth of the water while gazing at the stars and listening to the sounds of the evening.
