Where the swim spa is a”stand-alone“above-ground installation to be installed in regions where freeze/thaw conditions may occur, a level patio stone or pre-formed paver type base may be sufficient if there is no abutting deck(s) that might be ruined during potential seasonal movement of the ground.
The potential drawback to this type of base is that splash water could eventually de-stabilize the ground under the base, with the resultant shift of the support base causing damage to the swim spa structure.
Hey nice information....
Thanks for sharing... :)
AquaFit System is a versatile swim-in-place and all-year-round portable fitness center, which can be installed in a variety of ways. Its Steel Strict frame structure gives you the freedom to install your AquaFit above-ground or in-ground. The choice is yours. If you ever decide to move to a new place, bring the AquaFit unit with you as it is totally portable and self-standing.

Please find below a quick summary of the basic installation requirements-

•Concrete Pad. The AFS must be fully supported over the entire base. A typical installation on soil that will support 1,000 psi load is 6 inch (15 cm) thick concrete with # 4 re barred on 18 inch (46 cm) centers. Conditions at the site will determine the exact support requirements. Please contact your local contractor for adequate installation. Damages caused by inadequate support will not be covered by the warranty.

•Excess Water. Normal use of the swim spa causes large amounts of water to splash out of the unit. Depending on the specific installation, additional provisions may have to be made for proper removal of this water.

•Clearance Access: In order to better service your product, clearance for access to AFS must be 36 inches (92 cm) at equipment compartment and 24 inches (61 cm) around the remaining area.

•Ventilation: If installed indoors, you must provide proper ventilation. Contact an HVAC professional to ensure proper humidity control. Installation should comply with requirements as stated in HVAC application handbook (ASHRA 1999b). For safety issues, it is important to put the cover of your AquaFit on every time you are not inside of the unit.

• You need a dedicated electric line of 240 V.

Clearing path for delivery

Then you have to clear a path for the purpose of delivery of your spa pool. The items that usually cause blockage to the delivery route of your pool include fences, play equipment, decorative planters, lawn furniture, etc. So you have to ensure the fact that there is a clear pathway going directly to the base in order that the delivery person or you can wheel the spa successfully without facing any hindrance.

Setting up electric connection

You are also required to set up an electric connection for your pool. You can call in an expert electrician for this purpose. You have to connect the wiring of your spa pool into the intersection of your electric box. Often you will find that this needs the extension of your electric connection to the location of your spa if the junction box is not close enough. You can do the extension by making use of PVC conduit buried in a trench having minimum depth of 18 inches. Another thing you should remember is that your 220 volt spa pool should be having ground fault protection for saving users from getting electric shock.

Filling pool with water and balancing chemicals

After that you have to fill your pool with water and should also balance the chemicals used in your spa water. You can fill the water with the help of garden hosepipe. And when you will find that the pool of your spa has become full, you can turn the heater on and set the thermostat to your comfort level. Again you are required to check the water of your spa with the help of spa testing strip and mix the necessary amount of chemicals for raising the water level to an ideal range. Moreover if you like you can also carry a water sample to your local pool store for conducting a free test and making recommendations for chemical product.

Placing cover of the spa

Finally when you will find that your pool is full with water, you have to place the cover on the top of the spa. It is because with the help of the cover, the water of your pool will be getting heated more quickly and can effectively maintain its temperature. Beside the water of your pool will be protected from dust and debris when your pool will not be in use.

By following these steps you can install spa pool in your home. However if you feel confused, you can call in the service of Calgary pools or Calgary spas to help you in the process of installing pools for your spas.
