This spa / pool is the perfect solution for a backyard that is too small for a pool. This client wanted a pool or a water feature a patio and a fun place to entertain. Our idea was to create this spool, which can stay cool during hot summer days and heated up on a cool evening. Add a waterfall and a gas fire pit and this place is party central!

    This is exactly what I'd like! We have a 400 gallon hot tub attached to a 25 thousand gallon pool. We don't use the pool nearly enough so this spool is perfect for us in our next house!

    This spool is approx 12' long and 7-8' wide. It is basically a very small vinyl swimming pool with several extra Jacuzzi jets. It has 2 water pumps for the jets, 1 water pump for the waterfall, 1 air pump and a full size gas heater (so the temp. can go
