Energy Efficient Swim Spas

Hydropool swim spas are engineered to be the most energy efficient swim spa in the world! Our Hydrowise insulation system insulates the shell of the swim spa, to keep the heat in the hot tub water, as well as the cabinet of the swim spa. By insulating the cabinet we can both protect the swim spa’s equipment and make use of the waste heat from it’s pumps and heater.r.


A swim spa pump creates 1.5kW’s of waste heat, that’s an average of $0.14 of heat being lost every hour the pumps are on, or around $300-400 a year! Hydropool’s thermal shield blanket reflects 90-97% of that heat back to the water, saving you big on your energy bill!

However, insulation is just one component of a swim spa’s energy efficiency. Our exclusive Self-Cleaning filtration allows us to filter all of the water in our swim spas in 40 minutes or less, giving our pumps the lowest run times in the industry! Our Evergreen jet pumps are also an average of 26% more efficient than the competition!

Self-Cleaning Technology

Your Hydropool swim spa filters 100% of the water every 15 minutes. This means that the swim spa does not have to be operating as often in order to filter the same amount of water as our competitors, making it the most energy-efficient filtration system in the world.

Hydrowise Heat Shield Hardcover

This heavy-duty safety hardcover contains an insulated baffle in the fold area, locking the heat in and the cold out.

Insulated Thermal Shield Blanket

Triple thermal shield technology uses aluminum foil to reflect heat back into the swim spa, as well as black backing and pipes designed to maximize heat absorption. This very same technology is used by NASA to protect its astronauts from the -270 degree cold of outer space.

Eco-Heat Exchange Technology

Each pump creates 1.5 kW of waste heat and our triple thermal shield blanket reflects that heat back into our hot tub cavity. HydroWise thermal vents maximize energy efficiency for any season and any climate.

Low Amperage Evergreen Pump

Our pumps are engineered to produce high flow rates with low energy output, resulting in filtration that is 26% more efficient than the competition.

Programmable Controls

Select your desired water temperature and your swim spa will automatically maintain this setting while conserving as much energy as possible.

Designed to Exceed CEC Regulations

Hydropool swim spas are ranked in the top three globally for stand-by wattage and energy efficiency and were one of the first to be approved under the strict California Energy Commission regulations.
