Acrylic vs. Concrete

The Advantages of Acrylic vs. Concrete

Acrylic spas have pipes, jets, returns, skimmer and suction fittings that are exposed to the underside of the shell and, with access, the shell can be literally re-plumbed on site without removal. Compare this to a concrete spa in which the piping and fittings are encased in concrete repair or replacement means partial demolition of the shell.
Due to the frequent draining and refilling of spas, the shell is stressed on a consistent basis by the cycle of unloading and then filling with cold water into a warm shell. With an acrylic spa, this is not an issue as the shell is designed for this and the piping is not stressed along with the remainder of the shell. With a concrete shell the pipe joints and fittings are subject to this repeated strain and it is very common for a concrete shell to leak from this cause.Waterproofing a spa is expensive and challenging, however with an acrylic spa; the waterproofing is integral to the construction and is assured due to each spa being factory water tested.

The cost savings are also significant due to the elimination of on site shell construction, plumbing, waterproofing and tiling as compared to an acrylic tub. Also cost savings can be made through the efficiency of acrylic jets versus concrete jets which typically require twice as much flow to work. Operational savings can also be made with the elimination of tiling and grout maintenance as compared to the maintenance free acrylic surface.For these and many more reasons, most new projects are choosing commercial spas over concrete and are now reaping the benefits of choosing Hydropool commercial acrylic spas.
