Small backyard? This "spool" is the perfect solution

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!

    Could you please tell me the dimensions on the "spool"? Just the swimming/spa part? This is a great idea especially here in Idaho where we don't have enough of a warm season to justify having a pool. The spool makes sense around here

    This is what I want! I love water and would love to be able to lap swim, splash around a bit, but with my arthritis would really like a hot tub. This would be so awesome!
