HOT TUBS

A 110 hot tub plugs into a 110v 20 amp dedicated circuit, it will run the jets or the heater.

A 220 spa is hardwired, and runs the jets and the heater at the same time.

A hot tub without the lounger provides additional seating and a hot tub with a lounger enables the customer to stretch out in a designed lounge area.

Our hot tubs come 29, 33, 36, and 38 inches tall, respectively. One of the most noticeable difference is in the footwell area as the spa gets taller, the footwell area gets deeper.

A “Plug & Play” or “Plug-N-Play” simply means you are able to plug it into a 110 outlet and run it without additional electrical set-up.

Typically the difference is in the type of chemicals that you can utilize with that take your spa; the spa that has the circulation pump is moving and cleaning 24/7, whereas a spa without a circulation pump is set on a timer to circulate.

SWIM SPAS

Swim spas are multipurpose, so whether you want to maintain an at-home exercise routine or simply have a place to play and relax, the investment is worth it! Do you swim regularly? Or just for enjoyment? Will aquatic exercise help you meet your health goals? Or is a place for family enjoyment and to unwind what you are looking for? Swim spas combine the joy of aquatic activity with at-home convenience, indoors and out.

Swim spa, exercise pool, Fitness System … you’ve likely heard all of these terms used, so what’s the difference?

The swim spa, exercise pool and Fitness System comparison can be tricky to understand especially when most of the time they are interchangeable, representing a hybrid of a spa and a pool. They each typically come with a jet or propulsion system designed for swimming against a current, a low-impact workout or both. Swim spas are smaller in size and often include massage jets for a relaxing experience. Sizing, features, and add-ons will vary by model.

A SWIM SPA focuses on swimming, with the added benefit of spa seating (usually). When shopping for a swim spa, its important to learn about the swim current system. A swim jet system that uses air to produce force will be far more turbulent than a swim jet system that uses a boost effect to draw in more water. Learn about why SwimCross™ Exercise Systems uses a boost effect to draw in more water for a low-turbulent jetted swim.

AN EXERCISE POOL provides an environment for aquatic exercise, but it’s typically smaller and not suitable for swimming. Exercise pools sometimes include spa seating, but not always. Learn why the SwimCross Exercise Systems X200 or X500 are great alternatives to a typical exercise pool.

A FITNESS SYSTEM provides the best environment for swimming, aquatic exercise and relaxation. With the leading Endless Pools Swim Machine, the only hydraulically-run underwater treadmill, built-in anchors for aquatic fitness equipment and comfortable hydromassage spa seating, Endless Pools Fitness Systems are the ideal mix of a swim spa and an exercise pool with a beautiful style that compliments any home.

Our underwater treadmill works by a hydraulic power unit (HPU) that pumps biodegradable vegetable oil to the treadmill’s underwater motor. This innovative design is energy efficient and eco-friendly while still providing maximum power.

The treadmill varies from a walking to running pace with a speed range of 0 to 5.5 MPH, so it can be easily adjusted for any workout level. Customers are typically drawn to the underwater treadmill because of the extra versatility and benefits it gives to their in-home Fitness System.

SAUNAS

The appropriate temperature for a sauna depends on your preference! Most people prefer to enjoy their sauna at temperatures between 150-175 degrees Fahrenheit for traditional saunas and 120-130 degrees Fahrenheit for infrared saunas.

While this, too, varies between individuals – one can usually stay in the sauna until they begin to feel uncomfortable. Typically, remain in the sauna for about 10-15 minutes and then take a break to cool off for several minutes. Then you can feel free to return to the sauna for another “inning.” A Finnleo sauna experience can be truly relaxing and rewarding, but don’t stay in the sauna for extended periods of time. Set the temperature and humidity level (if you are using a traditional sauna) to your ideal level. If you begin to feel dizzy or uncomfortable, simply leave the sauna and cool off.

After your sauna, cleanse your skin via shower or bath to remove any and all residues or salts left behind. A quick rinse will close your pores once again and is the perfect way to end your sauna experience. It is recommended that you moisturize your skin with a high quality moisturizing lotion. It’s also ideal to shampoo your hair afterward. Don’t forget to drink an adequate amount of water, mineral water, fruit or vegetable juice to replace fluids that were lost during your heat bathing.

Pouring water on the rocks of Finnleo traditional sauna heaters is perfectly fine and is an essential aspect of the overall experience! For instance, however, the humidity will be ambient. The new BWT feature on the Vena-T, Himalaya and Laava makes adding water even easier than ever.

Be sure to consult your personal physician if you have any history of heart problems, high blood pressure or any other health problems before enjoying any kind of sauna.

Relaxation is by far the most cited benefit from regular sauna bathers, followed closely by the positive effects seen from detoxification.

If you use your sauna 3 times per week, a 6kW heater will use approximately $4 to $6 per month. A 2.1 kW heater, on the other hand, would use about $2/month. Far-infared saunas typically use $3 to $5 per month. Steam baths usually average $3 to $5 per month.

A traditional sauna generally takes between 30 and 45 minutes to fully heat up. During this time, the rocks will be heated to the perfect temperature for soft heat and soft steam. With the addition of a Saunatonttu heater, the sauna heat up time is halved. It takes about 10 minutes for an infrared sauna to heat up. After 10 minutes, the air has warmed up a little and the emitters are running at full power.

GRILLS

This will depend on what temperature you are cooking at and a few other things but usually you should hope for about 5-15 hours on a 20lb. bag. If you love math wood pellets produce approximately 8500 BTU/lb/hour. This means a 20lb. bag will produce 170,000 BTU.
