An H2X Swim Spa by Master Spas provides a variety of options including swimming, exercise, therapy, and family fun.

What exercises can I do in an H2X Swim Spa?

Many people choose an H2X Swim Spa by Master Spas because they need the benefits of aquatic therapy.

Can I actually swim in an H2X Swim Spa?

For those that incorporate swimming into their normal routine or those looking for a more realistic swim experience, we suggest you explore the Challenger series. H2X Challenger models feature the innovative Airless VIP technology. With three pumps and less air in the flow of water, Challenger swim spa users will enjoy a smoother, more customizable swim experience.

What sizes are available?

A great thing about the H2X Swim Spas by Master Spas is the variety of sizes. We feature a complete line-up of models to suit any need based on your available space and the kind of benefits you'd like to achieve with your new swim spa. The five unique models range in size from 11' to a little over 19' long. The Trainer 18 provides the largest open area of any model making it ideal for workouts.

Some models are also available in two different depths: 51" and 60”. We recommend the 60" deep models for those using the swim spa for therapy and exercise.

Do you make a model with both a swim spa and hot tub?

Yes, the Trainer 19 is built to have 2 separate bodies of water (some refer to this as dual temperature). The swim spa side is usually kept at a cooler temperature. The hot tub side contains a variety of therapy seating that is usually kept at a hotter temperature.

All H2X Swim Spas by Master Spas contain some sort of therapy seating and therapy jets but the Trainer 19 is the only dual temperature model.

Where do I put my new H2X Swim Spa?

You need to determine the amount of space available to you, whether you want it indoors or outdoors, how you want it to fit in with the overall design of your surroundings, etc. We’ve developed a resource that has been invaluable to our customers in preparing for the purchase and delivery of their new swim spa.
