Pros / Most cost under $2 per day to operate.
Cons / There isn’t a very large variety of swim spa sizes.
Verdict / Arctic Spas has a quick sales team and lots of customizable swim spas so you can live extravagantly or find a more affordable unit that will fit your family’s needs.
There are seven base swim spa models to customize at Arctic Spas: Hudson, Kingfisher, Wolverine, Ocean, Athabascan and Okanagan. Each has its own unique qualities and options you can adapt to fit your lifestyle whether you want to work out or just have fun with the kids. In most cases, these swim spas cost less an $2.00 a day to operate.
Going over every aspect of every swim spa would get boring, so instead we're going to touch on a couple we thought were interesting, though your family's needs might differ. The Athabascan Swim Spa is an all-weather pool with quite a bit of swimming area in its 1,347 gallons of water. It comes standard with a heat transfer pure fiberglass shell and an insulation system to trap warmth even during colder months. The Kingfisher is also an all-weather pool and has lights swimmers can use to make sure they're swimming straight against the pool's current. It also has a beautiful Western Red Cedar cabinet the company builds using Western Canadian cedar. The Ocean has more swim spa features than the company's all-weather pools. You can even select your own jet configuration and get 30, 45 or a whopping 61 jets in this swim spa.
This company was founded in 1994 by “unique group of guys” from rural parts of Western Canada. The sales staff will help you customize your swim spa so it’s as extravagant or as affordable as you want. You can even use a smartphone app to control your spa, though if you want fewer options the website says they have spas available for as little as $4,000. We requested a price quote on a weekday and got a call back in 1 hour and 19 minutes, which was by far the best response time of the websites we tested. Some sites like Dimension One never even got back to us at all.
You can use a smartphone app to run your swim spa from afar, opt for a speaker system and even a fancy cover to protect your investment. There are a lot of informational videos throughout the website as well to make your decision a little easier. The range of sizes is the smallest of the websites we evaluated with spas as small as 1,347 and only as large as 1,453, but this range does seem to be the most common sizes of swim spas on the market. There also isn’t any workout equipment for sale, but this website’s wide range of customizable swim spas make it worth a look.
