Building new PPOR is Melbourne (New estate, not luxury location) and thinking of fitting either a lap pool, or a swim spa (Fastlane Pools, Small Swimming Machines, Swim Current Pools - swim spa version) - which one do you think would be better? Anyone tried swim spa from fast lane? Main function: swimming exercises, good for my bad back Main users: me Frequency: approx. 3x a week 30 mins each Cost: either option cost about 50k excluding fences and paving The lap pool option - 2 x 13m, 1.3m deep Pro: - it's a real concrete pool, I know what I can expect in terms of swimming - looks better - I'm not an Olympic swimmer, I can just do many tumbleturn Cons: - expensive - unremovable - potential issue when the times come to sell - only used mainly by me - maintenance The swim spa from fast lane Swim Spa Perth | Swim Spas Adelaide | Swim Spa Cost The largest 5.18m with stronger machine Pro: - portable, I can move it to the next house - relatively less maintenance - Can be used by hubby for spa all time of the year (plus friends when they visit) Cons: - expensive! - less pretty - I'm not sure about the swimming experience - potential issue with maintenance/ machinary Option 3 Buy car, learn to drive to local pool. But this is unlikely to happen during weekdays. Not much time. I'd like something I can access before or after work Input?
