After what has felt like an extremely long wait, summer is finally here! The season of warm days and light nights has returned.

When these summer heat waves bring high humidity, the first thing on many people’s minds is finding ways to keep cool and refreshed during those scorching days.

One question often arises among prospective swim spa owners: Can my swim spa be cool enough to use during summer when the sun is beating down and temperatures are high?

The answer is yes, you can keep cool in your swim spa. Swim spas are designed to be used 365 days a year and can be made to feel refreshing and comfortable, even on the hottest days of the year.

Our swim spa temperatures range anywhere from 20°C to 40°C so you can regulate the water’s temperature, keeping it within a range that is comfortable for swimming, exercising, or simply relaxing.

Additionally, some swim spas are designed with dual temperature ranges, meaning that the system incorporates two separate temperature controls giving you the option to set one unit cooler than the other.

How do I keep my swim spa cool in summer?

Depending on the model you have, you can set your unit to a lower temperature and place it into Rest mode. This setting allows the water in your swim spa to maintain a cool temperature, while only heating during the cycles for your filtration system. By doing this, you can turn your swim spa into the perfect swimming pool alternative!

Other tips for to prepare your swim spa for the summer months is to think about location placement and shading. It would help if you keep your swim spa in a shaded area, either under a pergola/gazebo or beside a tall tree, away from direct sunlight. This can be further aided by installing pool umbrellas, canopies, or even a swim spa enclosure. With these tips in mind, you can enjoy all the benefits of your swim spa, even during the sweltering summer heat.

What temperature should a swim spa be in the summer?

In general, the ideal temperature for a swim spa during the summer months is between 25 and 29 degrees Celsius. This temperature range is comfortable for both swimming and relaxation and is perfect for cooling off during hot summer days.

If you’re using your swim spa for exercise, you may prefer a slightly cooler temperature to maintain a more comfortable level of exertion.

On the other hand, if you’re using your swim spa for relaxation or therapy, a warmer temperature may be more appropriate to soothe sore muscles and promote relaxation.

It’s important to remember that the ideal temperature for your swim spa may vary depending on your personal preferences, as well as the climate and conditions of your location. Consider how often you’ll be using your swim spa, the purpose of your usage, and the overall climate in your area to determine the best temperature range for your swim spa.
