Multitasking can be detrimental to your ability to unwind and maintain a healthy mental and emotional state; in our technologically advanced society, overstimulation is a real concern. However, multipurpose improvements can actually lower our stress levels and provide better value for our money. An in-ground pool with an adjoining in-ground hot tub is one such example. Naturally, certain multipurpose objects may have diminished functionality for either use. Does that apply to hot tubs and pools? Let’s take a closer look.
It will typically take less time and money to install both an in-ground pool and a hot tub simultaneously, and the area will be significantly more flexibly usable for a broader number of users as a result. Of course, some hot tub owners may subsequently put a pool in their yard, and some pool owners will do the opposite. Which course is the more advantageous one in the long run? It might be in your best advantage to make plans now for both and perhaps have both installed at the same time if you know you’ll want both in the future. The ability to create a unified design is a significant advantage of installing both at once, in addition to construction cost savings. There are, however, drawbacks as well.
Combination pools and hot tubs have one drawback: instead of being at your house’s back entrance, your hot tub will have to be close to the pool. That may definitely cause you challenges you’ll later regret, especially when it is cold outside. A premium portable hot tub often has more energetic pumps than an in-ground hot tub, which results in a far more energizing massage despite the site restrictions.
Additional factors to think about are convenience and comfort. In-ground hot tubs normally feature fixed bench seats, whereas portable hot tubs have a wide variety of more comfortable and adjustable seating options. A combined hot tub with swimming pool is less convenient because it usually takes longer and more energy to heat the water before each use. (Of course, that problem also entails increased recurring expenses.)
Other Factors to Consider
You can capture the best of both worlds rather than installing a pool and hot tub combo: Install an above-ground hot tub and an in-ground pool at the same time. By choosing this option, you may enjoy the best of both worlds: you can design your outdoor area and where the two units will go as a cohesive whole, reaping the most advantages of both a free-standing hot tub and a built-in swimming pool. Your hot tub will be most handy during bad weather and last-minute usage if it is situated close to your back door or beneath some sort of shade. You might also decide to place your hot tub close to your pool so that adults can soak in peace while keeping an eye on the youngsters as they splash around in the water.
