hehehh, it'll actually be a tad before the pool is open. and yes, earlier now with the heater installed mid-last year (it's my folks' pool and they are psyched) Thanks for the reply! Great site kellyfair
Depends on your needs- hot tub has its pros like always being covered & ready for use especially if it’s just you or your significant other & you don’t want all the maintenance of a large open body of water. Either one can have easier daily dosing maintenance by using a swg.
If you have a short swim season a hot tub may serve u for much longer.
If you have a family & want to have pool parties in the summer a pool is the answer. I personally like having both - we have about 6 months of swimming weather here & I use my hot tub daily year round lots of times twice a day in the winter. It also allows me to extend my swimming when the weather cools down a bit - get cold in the pool, jump in the hot tub!
A spa can be dumped & refilled easily if u have a mishap - not so much with a pool.
Really depends on your situation & what u think you would get the most value from.
