Top 5 Pool and Spa Combos for 2015
- Pool with Integrated Spa
A spa integrated with the pool is simply where the pool is not only attached with the pool, it’s located inside the pool. Depending on the shape of pool you want the spas are generally located in the corner or at the end of the pool. There’s a square set of walls built in the pool to separate the cold water from the hot. Depending on your preferences the spa can be any shape and size.
- Pool with Attached Spa
Like the integrated pool this spa sits on the outside of the pool or adjacent to it. An attached spa can be any shape or size and is generally the same design as the pool but some people like to make it more abstract.
One of the most attractive Pool and Spa combos encompasses an attached spa that can be built inground with the pool or built elevated above the pool. an elevated spa commonly goes between 6 inches to 18. The most common elevation is between 12- 18 inches.
Adding another level to your pool like the addition of the spa is more attractive and abstract looking that’s why it’s usually finished in a title like decoration.
- Pool with Raised Perimeter-Overflow Spa
Another popular style for pool and spa combos is the raised perimeter-overflow and this has become increasingly popular. This unique effect is created that the walls of the spa is lower than the water filled in it so the water overflows. There’s a catch below that recycles the water back into the spa. Rather than it flowing into the pool.
This style can be both integrated or attached. The integrated option looks as if the spa is lifting out from the pool and is floating on top of the water. Using tile to finish the decoration gives it an effect of reflection with the water against the tile.
- Pool with Spillover Spa
A pool with a raised spa is the perfect opportunity to have the spillover spa. Multiple of the spa walls are lower than the water height and the spa water flows into the pool.
The way a spillover spa works, is normally a thin layer of water flows over evenly into the pool. Sometimes there’s several different layers to spill over. The last design used is funnel- like shots that shoot into the swimming pool.
- Pool and Detached Spa
A spa can make a pool looked advanced and more elaborate. Though there are times people just want two separate designs created. For more privacy and relaxing getaways, the detached spa is the way to go. It really works if you want a bigger spa and have the space to create both attractions. Another suggestion is if you decide to separate the two, to keep the same look or design. Two different designs may look odd or off.
