From the mountains in Connecticut to a courtyard in Kona, Hawaii, homeowners are creating a place to swim, splash, and spend time with family and friends. A Master Spas swim spa combines the therapy of a hot tub with the benefits of a pool. And for some homeowners, a swim spa can be the way to make the most of a small backyard or space. Whether you're working with limited space, challenging terrains, or considering an indoor enclosure, swim spas are incredibly versatile and can be seamlessly integrated into your landscape.

In this Facebook live video, Master Spas swim spa specialists Ben Gilliam and Mari Cuticelli discuss their favorite unique installations and tips for homeowners who are considering a swim spa.

Small backyards: Not everyone has a vast backyard, but that shouldn't limit your dream of owning a swim spa. Ben and Mari share the ways homeowners have made the most of limited space. Depending on your local codes, you only need a space that's about 20 feet by 15 feet for a swim spa — and that's giving you some room to walk around. You can use a skilled crane service to place the swim spa on the base, whether it's a vault or reinforced concrete pad.

Indoor enclosure: Do you want to enjoy your spa without braving the elements? An indoor swim spa might be the solution. If you're considering enclosing your swim spa within your home or in a standalone building, Ben and Mari address important factors to keep in mind. Master Spas swim spas are not modular and cannot be taken apart and reassembled. You also want to consider ceiling height, ventilation, and the cover swing.

Sloped yards and vaults: Don't let a sloped yard or the need for a vault installation deter you from enjoying the benefits of a swim spa. Ben and Mari share how homeowners have used a sloped yard as an advantage. Cutting into the hill and building a retaining wall can create a unique installation space. For vault installations, Ben and Mari give you the details about drainage and the option of using liftable decking to bridge the gap and enhance accessibility.
