Poll: Would you prefer a pool or a spa?

Re: Poll: Would you prefer a pool or a spa?

 

Well done @BibbyKat, you made the perfect choice, your circumstances are unique, & you sized your spa for your needs, not a bigger party bath that can accommodate the occasional crowd.

 

It makes sense on every level.

 

A pool would've been overkill, way more expensive to buy & maintain, & you wouldn't have been able to do what you can comfortably do now, with an off the shelf pool.

Gee @Andy_Mann, I'm all hot and bothered after 'trying' to absorb all that tech info - guess I'll go for a swim to cool down. Cheers

Pool for me every time. Being in a spa with or without ( who knows who left their DNA in there - yuk ) others makes me feel like a crouton in a bowl of skin soup. No chemicals/cleaning systems could change that for me.

But @Trying, your absolutely authentic, natural Australian setting pool wouldn't be heated though, would it? :giggle: :wink:

Most Workshop members prefer having a dip in a pool compared to a spa.

 

Despite the attraction of warmer water and being able to enjoy it all year round, our recent poll found just 23 per cent of the community would prefer a spa to a pool.

New pool - what should I ask?

 

Fiberglass or Concrete pool?

I see Hannah and Clint’s addition of a spa on The Block was ridiculed by the judges. I wasn't sure about the "above ground" plunge pool either...

I didn't see the episode @Isobel but saw a preview with someone using a shipping container.

 

What was the criticism for? Just the fact is was above ground?
