Canadian Made Swim Spas

Swim Spas offer the perfect way for the entire family to swim, exercise, and relax throughout the entire year. Swim spas combine the best of both worlds from a traditional swimming pool and a hot tub, in a compact yet comfortable, self-contained unit. With a swim spa, you can get a fantastic and challenging workout via the adjustable swim current or also choose to sit back and enjoy soaking in heated waters with soothing hydrotherapy massage programs. With most swim spa models being less than 19ft, they can fit in small spaces and even indoors if maximum privacy is preferred.

How Swim Spas Work

Swim spas are equipped with a built-in current that is powered by propulsion jets. The strength of the current can be adjusted to suit the difficulty level of the swimmer. The swim current keeps swimmers in place as they swim, similar to how a treadmill works for runners so that they do not have to constantly reach the wall and turn around to swim laps. The water in the swim spa can also be adjusted. In the spa section, water temperatures can be set to a hot tub level of 104° F and the water can be turned down to 80° F when working out. Many swim spa models feature a dual temperature option where the spa section can be set to a higher temperature than the swim chamber so that multiple users can enjoy it at once.

Benefits to Aqua-Fitness in a Swim Spa:

  • Allow you to exercise every muscle and joint in the body at the same time.
  • Keeps the body cool while working out as the water lowers body temperature the entire workout
  • Suitable for all ages
  • Less strain on muscles and joints
  • Increases muscle strength and flexibility
  • Improves mobility, co-ordination, balance and range of motion.
  • Burns calories
  • Creates massage effect on muscles
  • Provides versatile outdoor environment to train in
  • Enables you with your own aquatic gym in the privacy on your backyard.


A major advantage of a swim spa over a traditional swimming pool is that it can be used year-round, even in the cold winter months. The insulation and built-in heating system prevents the water from freezing. Our models are all incredibly energy efficient, even when being used in the winter so that your utility bill doesn’t dramatically increase. Our line of Hydropool spas are the only true self-cleaning swim spa models in the world and are renowned for their innovative technology and environmental practices.

  • Right from our initial meeting with Bjorn from Backyard Retreat in Oakville, our experience was a very positive one. Bjorn is knowledgeable, and eager to educate resulting in the right product for your needs. We purchased a 17 1/2 foot Hydropool swim spa from Bjorn, with delivery and installation professionally handled with timelines met, amid the COVID-19 inventory crisis. We are very fortunate to have dealt with Bjorn, and would recommend him and his services without hesitation. Although seeing the crane lift the spa over our house for installation in our backyard was a little nerve-racking, it went seamlessly!
