Take a look at our ideas for installation below, for tips that could help you decide on the best choice for you…

Raised Deck

For a raised deck installation, you’ll need to ensure there is access on all four sides of the swim spa for servicing and general cleaning; there can sometimes also be an issue with the placement of the hardcover if there isn’t sufficient space for this to be installed, so it’s worth bearing this in mind from a practicality perspective. Don’t let this deter you from this type of installation, as our team are experienced in raised deck installations and are on hand to advise on how to achieve this beautiful finished look.

Edge Of Deck

Whether you already have a deck in your garden, or you’re considering adding one specifically to house this installation, you’ll be one of the many customers who choose this type of installation – this is one of the most popular choices! Not only do these types of installations look stunning, they’re incredibly efficient when it comes to servicing and cleaning your swim spa.

Stand Alone

This is undoubtedly the most common installation type that our customers choose and requires no digging or specialist equipment to complete; A crane will simply lift your swim spa into place in your desired location and it’s ready to be filled! This type of installation is perfect when thinking of how to service and clean your swim spa, along with adding an impressive central focus within your garden.


Although this installation is deemed as being more of a challenging installation to complete, adequate planning and practical considerations for water flow, water seepage and serviceability, will mean that this stunning look is still achievable.

Half And Half

This installation requires on average, the same amount of thought and planning as an in-ground installation, but once installed, it is one of the easiest to maintain and service. Plus, it’s one of the simplest to get in and out of with a raised lip – just swing your legs over and step onto a level surface; If you’re looking for a solution that gives you ease of access, this is the one for you!


We all know that the British weather isn’t something that we can always rely on, and so if you’re lucky enough to have some indoor space of a fitness room within your home, then an indoor installation might be the one for you. The only considerations which you’d need to bear in mind, would be that the room has a floor drain, window, suitable fans for proper ventilation and a dehumidifier.

If you’re still undecided about which installation is the best option for you, our friendly team at your local showroom are on hand to discuss this further; we take pride in being experts in helping you to create the perfect swimming conditions for you to really make the most of your investment with us.
