Swim spas combine the best qualities of a hot tub with the extra space and functionality of a self-contained, above-ground swimming pool. Benefits include: heated-water hydrotherapy, aquatic rehabilitation, water aerobics, swim-in-place training, and a fun place for the kids and grandkids to enjoy. But you probably wonder, “Which is the best swim spa brand?” Since your research has led you to Aquatic Training Vessels™, you are well on your way to answering that question.
For good reasons, ATV™ swim spas are consistently recognized as the #1 Best Swim Spa Brand by industry experts and swim spa owners alike. In fact, ATV have garnered an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars on ConsumerAffairs.com, a popular consumer reviews site. In our experience, the top four reasons people choose ATV are superior 1) quality, 2) performance, 3) features, and 4) customer service.
While other swim spa manufacturers have moved their production out of the United States, Aquatic Training Vessels are steadfastly made on American soil. As an employee-owned company based in Independence, Oregon, USA, the men and women of ATV are personally invested in our tradition of world-class craftsmanship. Not surprisingly, this commitment to quality informs our choice of materials.
Whereas traditional swim spa shells are made from vacuum-molded acrylic sheet, ATV are made from marine-grade, covalently-bonded-polymer resins, the kind used in high-end yacht hulls. Why so?
Adding to the bonded-polymer strength of the ATV shell, its fiberglass external frame employs unibody gusset construction to ensure unparalleled structural integrity and rigidity. In fact, many ATV customers have remarked: “This spa is built like a tank!” As a result, your financial investment and ownership experience are as rock solid as the spa itself.
ATV swim spas enjoy superior insulation and sound-proofing compared to other swim spa brands. Premium Icynene® spray foam resists moisture, mold and mildew. Full-foam insulation fills up air cavities to reduce heat transfer and save money on electric bills.1 Two high-quality DuraCover® energy covers protect the top of the spa and further conserve energy thanks to 2lb-density foam, full-length linear heat seal along the fold, and marine-grade double-stitched vinyl with a form-fitting skirt.
1Full-foam insulation is standard on ATV-17 and ATV-14 models. Foam over plumbing insulation is standard on the V150 Swim Spa & Party Vessel.
ATV are the only swim spas to offer DuraWood™ exterior cabinets, an upgraded co-extruded polymer composite even more rugged than standard ATV exteriors. Upgrading to the DuraWood option adds two color choices not otherwise available: Ash or Espresso. (NOTE: DuraWood is not available on the V150 Swim Spa & Party Vessel.)
ATV are engineered for powerful flow performance and adaptability toward a wide range of aquatic activities. The high-flow pumps, swim jets and buoyancy jets of the ATV-17 Kona generate such high flow volumes that even elite swimmers are awe struck. Perfect for intermediate swimmers, the ATV-17 Sport and its smaller sibling the ATV-14 Sport offer equivalent performance. And last but not least, the flow dynamics of the ATV-14 Splash and V150 Swim Spa & Party Vessel are perfectly suited to the needs of fitness-minded enthusiasts and recreational swimmers alike.
Every ATV swim spa includes integrated hydrotherapy massage seats, offering a variety of health and wellness benefits. Unlike other swim spa brands, however, ATV benefits from nearly 40 years of Marquis® hydrotherapy innovation. At the heart of Marquis’ design philosophy is “high-flow therapy,” optimizing water flow to deliver superior therapeutic benefits. No wonder ATV are so popular among people with critical health conditions and those who rely on aquatic therapy to maintain their quality of life. One might illustrate high-flow therapy this way:
Ergonomics, or the physical ease of use and comfort, is where many swim spa brands fall short. And, unfortunately, many first-time swim spa owners don’t pay close enough attention to ergonomics until their spa is installed and they begin using it. Only then do they realize why they should have chosen Aquatic Training Vessels.
The flexibility of the ATV system becomes apparent when you see the control system in action. Whether you desire a rigorous swim, a moderate workout, or simply a “lazy river” effect so your little ones can float around on pool toys, ATV can be as full-throttled or relaxing as you like.
Pristine water management is a hallmark feature of ATV swim spas, standing head and shoulders above every other swim spa brand. In addition to safeguarding your health and safety, the superior efficiency of the ATV water management system conserves energy and saves money on monthly utility bills and spa supplies (such as filters and sanitizer).

Smaller ATV swim spas, which have less water volume, actually filter the entire water volume more than five times per day.
Experienced swim trainers often utilize resistance tethers as a means of controlling the swim position of an athlete during training. Tethers are also effective for strength conditioning and a variety of creative exercises in and out of the water. All ATV swim spas are equipped with tether points at each end of the spa, as well as twin anchor points for an optional Resistance & Rowing Kit. A set of swim tether bands is included with each new ATV purchase, and replacement tethers are available through any authorized ATV Dealer.
With the ability to set water temperature in the range of 60 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit (16 to 40°C), ATV ensure maximal comfort all year-round. Depending on where your spa is located (and the ambient air temperature), you can expect to use your spa in both warm and cold weather. Just remember to follow the instructions in your Owner’s Manual, especially in extreme climates, to avoid UV damage or freezing issues.
