How Much Does a Michael Phelps Spa Cost? You will likely pay anywhere from $20,000 to $50,000 for one of these Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spas depending on the additional features you add and the area in which you purchase it.
Space Requirements of a Swim Spa vs. Lap Pool
The typical lap pool is 45 feet to 75 feet long, 6 feet to 8 feet wide and 3 ½ feet deep. Choosing to install such a pool requires a spacious backyard free of obstacles. Many homeowners might not have adequate space to install a lap pool.
The MP Momentum, the largest swim spa in the Michael Phelps Signature series, is nearly 20 feet long, 8 feet wide and 60 inches deep. With other models in the series, homeowners with limited space can enjoy the convenience and wellness benefits of a swim spa.
Swimming enthusiasts are likely accustomed to a 25-meter pool, which most yards — and budgets — cannot accommodate. Smaller lap pools require more frequent turns, which disrupt stroke rhythm and decrease the effectiveness of the workout.
The propulsion current of a Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spa allows for an endless swim workout, and the depth of the swim spa also means more effective aquatic exercise.

Enjoy the swimming pool alternative that allows you to exercise, relax, entertain, and, of course, swim in the convenience and privacy of your backyard. Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spas were developed not just with the elite athlete in mind but anyone who wants to incorporate exercise, recovery, and relaxation into their wellness routine.
Master Spas and Michael Phelps, along with his coach, first began working together in 2010. With input from Phelps, Master Spas was able to build upon its swim spa line and create a pool alternative that would benefit Phelps and his training. More than that, the collaboration would grow the options for anyone who wanted a place to enjoy water exercise and therapy, year-round.

Whether youre on day one of a training program, recovering from an injury, or would enjoy a relaxing time with your family, you can benefit and feel great with a Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spa by Master Spas.”
Cost of a Swim Spa vs. Lap Pool
Installing a lap pool is a major construction project that requires a sizeable investment in money and time. The initial cost of a traditional, in-ground lap pool varies based on size and location, but typically starts at $50,000. The lap pool installation, which can take three to six weeks to complete, requires excavating your backyard.
A Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spa can be installed on a level surface that can support the weight of the swim spa, such as a concrete pad or decking. Once the site is ready, installation takes less than a day.
And once the swim spa is filled with water, about a third of a lap pool, it is easier to maintain. Less water requires less chemicals to keep it balanced and less energy to keep it heated.
