The hard decision...

... I have decided to give up on the pool :(

There are too much unknown at this point due to easement etc and I'm not liking the chance of things to go wrong. I don't want to jeopardize the house for the pool that only I use (hubby is not a fan of swimming).

Maybe next time in the next house. It will be better as now I know what to look for.

In the meantime, a swim spa research will be in order :)

Two products in mind:

  • Fast Lane Swim Spa 
    • Likes:
      • Propeller type machine that generates better swimming current and supposedly one of the best in the market of swim spa
      • Ozone filtration system, i.e. non-chlorinated swim
      • Additional options on underwater treadmill for other type of exercises
    • Dislikes:
      • Expensive! about the same price as a pool
      • More difficult to integrate with the garden
Example how it might look like (I won't choose the double spa one though)
Another example

  • Oasis Platinum Swim Spa 
    • Likes:
      • About half the price of Fastlane
      • Better spa options (extra massage jets!!)
    • Dislikes:
      • Jet swimming system. Albeit better system than the old traditional jet, but I don't like the idea water being thrown to your face. 
      • Still expensive
      • Still difficult to integrate with garden

Other than that, I need to arrange an appointment to try them out and research on decking. The decking would be crucial to make the place great
