    Question about Therapy Jets

    We're still in the design phase, and keep coming up with new ideas.

    So, Question:
    Has anyone installed therapy jets in a pool (not spa)? If so, where did you put them, and how did it work out? Do you like it? Do you feel like it's beneficial in spite of not being hot water?

    We opted not to add a spa because of space constraints, and because our pool is small, we want it to be as functional as possible for us. Most of our kids are gone (just one 12yo left), so we're thinking mostly about the relaxation aspect of the pool. Since we're not getting any younger, we're thinking therapeutic massage jets would add usefulness and enjoyment. I was thinking maybe we could put some in along the swim-out bench in the deep end? It will be aout 10' long, and we haven't talked about the depth of it yet.

    What do y'all think?

    We had a seat installed in one area and then two therapy jets installed there. So you can sit there and have the jets pound on you.

    It's ok. I would have rather had an actual spa. Worth it? I can't say.

    Small Pool => Big Spa

    The only difference is water temperature and the jets. Add benches, jets and a heater, the pool can easily be switched to a spa whenever you want. Heat up time could be long though.
