Planning Your Pool - Building a spa pool

A spa is the ultimate indulgence. There is no better feeling after a long day than submerging yourself in a warm, clean pool of water. The stress and tension will simply melt away.

Rest and Rejuvenation

People around the world have been taking advantage of spas in one form or another for centuries. The ancient Romans discovered just how pleasant and relaxing natural hot baths could be and since then hot springs have been coveted by those seeking a bit of rejuvenation. A good soak will aid stress relief, ease tension in your muscles and improve blood circulation - what's not to like?

There are an array of destinations with naturally occurring hot springs across South Africa but if a drive out to Caledon or Montague doesn't sound that relaxing, you can always have the next best thing... your very own backyard spa.

Types of Spa Pools

The most common type of spa is of the factory moulded acrylic variety but you can also ask your pool builder to construct one with a concrete or gunite shell. If you do choose the latter please make sure that this is their speciality.

Many people choose the factory moulded version as they come in a selection of colours, shapes and sizes and are already fitted with air and water jets.

Cleaning Your Spa Pool

In order to enjoy your spa you will need to ensure that it is kept immaculately clean. Just like your swimming pool it needs to be chlorinated and if you are not going to be emptying it after using it you will need to consider an advanced water treatment system to ensure sanitary water.

The options truly are endless but remember that an experienced builder will be able to give you a lot more information, so be sure to choose a well established company in the spa building business.


Salt in Water

When salt is dissolved in water, the sodium and chlorine break apart to form free sodium ions and chloride ions. Effectively keeping your pool clean.
