We bought our tidalfit spa in 2017. We originally were going to get a swimming by pool. But weighing out the time to install and the cost we put it off. Most of our neighbors have swimming pools and don’t use. But then we saw a commercial on a swim spa. We decided to go check it out. We had it installed in ground. Looks nice and the great part we use it year round. The maintenance is easy and the cost of running it is so much cheaper than a swimming pool. A great source of excersise or just relaxing. We highly recommend a swim spa over a swimming pool.
