Installed above-ground over a flat concrete surface, these spas look pleasing and have everything required to operate them, including the pumps, heaters, filters, plumbing, and blowers. These pre-fabricated units are ready to plug in and use.

In-ground spas

Hot tubs are popular as exercise tubs, also called swim spas in Northern Ireland as they not only allow swimming in place, but also a variety of features such as seats with a series of water jets for therapeutic use, a heater, a system for water circulation and filtration and controls for these features.
