Michael Phelps Swim Spa vs. Jetted Swim Spas

For shoppers comparing swim spas, a jetted swim spa might seem like a more affordable option. But a Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spa offers a more versatile swimming and fitness experience that will bring value to your investment beyond the price tag.

Advantages of a Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spa:

  • Smoother, more controlled water current
  • Greater functionality

Water Current of a Jetted Swim Spa vs. Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spa

A jetted swim spa can be an adequate tool for general aquatic exercise but it does not offer the type of current required to achieve an effective swim workout. A jetted swim spa uses pumps and nozzles rather than propulsion to simulate an endless pool. The current is narrower, the water more turbulent and the resistance inconsistent.

Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spas use a propulsion system to create a current. The system does not require air to be used to generate resistance. The flow of water is smoother, deeper and wider to improve not just the swim experience but exercise, as well.

The variable settings of the Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spa, which go from 0 to 100, also allow the user more control. More control over the speed of the current creates a custom workout for users, no matter their fitness levels.

Functionality of a Jetted Swim Spa vs. Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spa

In a jetted swim spa, the position of jets can inhibit the ability to swim freely. The propulsion system of the MP series does not take up interfere with the swim area, allowing greater freedom to move. Users enjoy more space to swim, exercise, strengthen and stretch.

Because a jetted swim spa does not have consistent resistance, a swim harness tethering system could be required.
