A Prime Substitute for Swim Spas: The Little Pool Co.

Considering a swim spa? Dive into this essential read! Meet The Little Pool Co.: Offering pre-made, standalone fiberglass pools.

The Swim Spa Concept

A swim spa represents a unique amalgamation of a spa and a swimming pool, distinguished by its larger size in comparison to traditional spa pools and its incorporation of a deeper section suitable for swimming, standing, or engaging in various recreational activities. Engineered with potent “swim-jets” to facilitate exercise, swim spas provide a vigorous current for swimmers to challenge themselves against.

Mirroring the convenience of the Little Pool Co. range, swim spas are delivered pre-plumbed, necessitating only rudimentary site preparations, such as establishing a reinforced concrete base and ensuring electrical connectivity, to enable seamless installation.

Some of the Cons of Swim Spas

Swim spas have, of course, a number of advantages such as they are great for fitness, they are compact in size and they can be used year round. However, swim spas come with certain drawbacks to consider. Firstly, their powerful jet systems often lead to increased running costs compared to traditional swimming pools. Additionally, maintaining swim spas at higher temperatures can result in elevated power bills.

Another concern is their construction material. Swim spa shells are typically made from acrylic, which isn’t designed for prolonged exposure to sunlight. Over time, this can cause fading, cracking, and brittleness, necessitating costly repairs.

Furthermore, while swim spas resemble oversized spa pools, they might lack the aesthetic appeal of a genuine backyard water feature. Considering that we often spend more time admiring our pools than swimming in them, those seeking a permanent backyard pool may find concrete or fiberglass options more visually appealing and fitting.

WEIGHT

While swim spas are known for their weightiness, Little Pool Co pools boast remarkable lightweight construction, making them more economical to transport and hoist into position. Crafted from GRP (glass reinforced plastic), our structural system ensures resistance to rust, rot, and termite damage, guaranteeing enduring quality over time. Lightweight translates directly to savings and thanks to the low weight of Little Pools, you can save hundreds if not thousands of dollars on transport and placement.

POOL SHELL MATERIAL

Little Pool Co pools are crafted by a premier fiberglass pool manufacturer, engineered for enduring outdoor use. Unlike swim spas, which are typically constructed from acrylic, Little Pool Co pools are fabricated from a superior composite material. This material is specifically engineered to endure prolonged exposure to sunlight and can be seamlessly installed either in-ground or above ground, offering versatility and longevity for a lifetime of enjoyment.

The innovative composite exoskeleton is designed for effortless attachment of decking structures directly to the pool, minimizing landscaping expenses and facilitating seamless integration with existing decking structures.

WARRANTY

Warranties for swim spas differ from one manufacturer to another. Sometimes the warranty can be as little as two years but can go up depending on the brand of your choice. A Little Pool has a 10 year warranty on the patented GRP frame, and a 25 year pool shell warranty!

Why Choose Our Self Supported Fiberglass Pools over Swim Spas

Below are just three out of many reasons why you should choose a self supported pool from Little Pools rather than a swim spa to transform your backyard.
Little Pool Look and Feel

The Look and Feel

You can customize your Little Pool in many aspects. There are various cladding materials available and the fiberglass interior is simply delightful. The pool shell is very strong, it’s resistant to algae building on the walls, you will not need to replace or reline your pool surface. And our pool colors are just stunning.
Little Pool at your site

Little Pool at Your Site

There is minimal site preparation involved in installing your Little Pool. They are also very stable and you won’t be surprised by a sudden movement of your pool. The pool won’t lift as the result of a hydrostatic event nor it will sink as some precast concrete pools might in some circumstances due to them being much heavier.
The Cost Factor of Little Pools

The Cost Factor

Last but not least – the price. Although the price points for our pools and some precast concrete alternatives might seem quite similar, there can be a big difference when it comes to putting the pool into your backyard. Because Little Pools are much lighter, you can save thousands on craning the pool into the position. Another big advantage of Little Pools is that if you are planning to put a deck around your Little Pool, your tradesmen can attach the deck construction directly to the pool, leading to a better result and lower cost.
