Hi all, like many I've been hanging out here for a couple of years learning all I can. Currently interviewing pool builders. One issue I have struggled with is the whole in ground spa choice. I definitely like the idea for the therapeutic benefits since I get back aches but I just don't think in grounds over that much value from that perspective. I asked all four builders I've interviewed and to a person all four said yep while they look cool being incorporated into the pool build and all, they are just not that comfortable really and don't have enough jets typically if you care about therapy. At probably 15k or there about, its an expensive choice. That has led me consider the option of an above ground hot tub incorporated in some minor way into the hard scape since lets face it the above grounds just aren't that aesthetically pleasing. Did any of you folks have any similar concerns or considerations in your spa choice and which way did you ultimately go? Anyone out there with an above ground incorporated into their hard scape? Many thanks in advance folks and I look forward to sharing pictures, specs and questions as my journey progresses.
