A Spa pool myth busted: I cannot afford a spa pool.

Think spa pools are just for the rich and famous? Think again. This article explains how new technologies and manufacturing processes have made spas an affordable option for everyday people.

"I cannot afford a spa pool!"

This prolific myth is up there with the Loch Ness Monster in size and fame, but with a little research it is easily busted.

The past: Glamour, big hair and big spas!

Early in the history of modern spas pools (think early 80’s, big hair, Dallas and Dynasty!) spa pools were associated with the rich and famous and were glamorized on TV and in movies raising the perceived value.

In this myth's defense, the spa pool construction methods and components used at the time and still used by many manufacturers today, drove costs up making spa pools too expensive for most.

Present Day: Better efficiency, better quality and cheaper spas!

Although many manufactures still use the antiquated construction methods of the past, a few have developed much more state of the art, efficient manufacturing processes, which raises quality and reduces the initial purchase cost and the overall lifetime cost of spa pool ownership.

These advances have also increased the “in-spa” experience customers have while using spa pools and swim spas. A win, win for spa pool users everywhere. Furthermore with these advances in spa pools, quality spa pool manufactures are able to offer 10-year spa pool shell warranties.

Another myth busted: Spa pools cost a lot to run.

Yep once again, think of the 80’s. Now quality spa pool manufactures utilising new methods and components are building much more efficient spa pools which reduce spa pool running costs.

One example of this is using perimeter insulation. Spa pool perimeter insulation captures escaping heat from the pump, heater, and plumbing and holds it inside the cabinet. This warms the spa pool shell while limiting noise pollution outside the cabinet.

Another example of the advances that have been made is the use of efficient plumbing practice, allowing water to flow more easily which in turn reduces the work required by the pump.

With these many advances in spa pool manufacturing processes and components those shopping for spa pools have never seen high quality spa pools at such affordable prices. Furthermore, there are a number of easy financing options making spa pool ownership attainable for almost everyone.

Now that you know how affordable spas are today – it's time to go shopping! Check out the full range of spas on the Spa World website to find a spa or swim spa that will fit your needs.
