A spool is a combination of two words; pool and spa. Spools are much smaller than standard pools, measuring about 10 to 16 feet in length and 6 to 8 feet in width. You can think of a spool as the best of both worlds, combining the features of a spa with the opportunities a pool affords. Here are some spool considerations.
You may be interested in installing a small pool if you have a small backyard. If you cannot fit a regular pool, don’t have the budget for installing a standard pool, or want the versatility a pool and spa combo affords, a spool might be a perfect choice.
Your spool may be equipped with the following features:
- Water feature
- Current generation system
- LED lighting
- Built-in seating around the perimeter
- Robust heating system
- Powerful spa jets
Exercising in Small Pools
Small pools come with powerful jets that make a swirling current. This offers a full workout in a small swimming space. When using a small pool to work out your muscles and cardiovascular organs, the temperature should be low to avoid quick muscle fatigue.
Some spools include a detachable partition which makes it easy for a person to use the small pool as a hot relaxing spa, while another person can comfortably do laps in the cooler section of the pool.
Great for Any Special Event
A small pool offers enough depth to relax in during the summer season but you can use it as a spa during the cold months. A spool can be a great place to hold a laid-back and relaxing get-together with friends or family. Kids will enjoy having a special birthday party in the “mini pool”.
Cost & Maintenance
Spools are generally less expensive due to lowe4r maintenance needs. Of course, costs can vary depending on what additions you want to incorporate and what materials you select. Spools take less time to maintain, so you will have more time to enjoy time in the water.
