  13. What is used to keep the water clean? First of all, your Swim Spa comes standard with a skimfilter, giving you 2 cartridges to filter the water. You can use Nature2®, Chlorine, Bromine, a chlorine generator (salt system), or any other approved sanitizer available on the market to keep your water clean and sparkling.

  16. What about warranties? We've got you covered. Your Swim Spa panels carry a 10-year limited, prorated warranty against manufacturer's defect. Your spa equipment pack, liner, and other accessories are covered per individual manufacturer's warranties. Please see your individual warranty cards for complete information.
