Pros and Cons of Pool and Spa Combos
Fiberglass pools with attached spas have several key advantages and disadvantages, including:
- Saves space - Good for small backyards with limited space for a pool.
- Saves money - A separate fiberglass spa can cost up to $30,000, so choosing a model with the spa built in can save you significantly on upfront costs.
- Same durable gelcoat - Your spa will have the same durable gelcoat surface as your swimming pool, which will make it easier to maintain.
- Takes up swim space - Fiberglass pool sizes are limited and a built-in spa can cut into your swim space.
- Costs more to maintain - Spas use more chemicals due to the high heat, so it will cost more to maintain a pool and spa combo than a pool model without a spa.
