    Adding a spill over spa?

    Has anyone here added a spill over spa to an existing in ground pool as a stand alone project and not part of a major pool renovation? I am thinking of something like an above ground spa area with spillover waterfall going into the corner of an existing in ground pool.

    Indoor 20x40 35,000 gallon vinyl pool with 1.5 HP 2 speed Jandy FloPro pump, Hayward EC75 Perflex DE filter, 11 4x12 Techno-Solis solar panels w/ Aquasolar controller, Aquabot Turbo T Robot Cleaner. Also LMI metering chlorine dispenser pump and HotSpring Jetsetter

    Re: Adding a spill over spa?

    We have had one or two posts from people who have done this over the years, none recently. The only real issue is structural, making sure the spa has enough support without putting too much weight on the pool wall, which probably wasn't designed to take any extra load. Aside from the structural issue, the whole process is fairly simple.
