Using a hot tub is pretty simple. Set the heat and turn on the jets, jump in and soak. While that’s true, there are a few things you can do to make sure you get the most out of the time you spend in a backyard portable spa.
Here are three tips for getting more from your hot tub.
When you are preparing for a soothing soak in your portable spa, the right temperature can make all the difference. Hot tubs have thermostats to control the heat and keep the warmth at the desired level for as long as you need it, but don’t forget to choose the right level of warmth for what you are using the hot tub for.
Soaking for fun, entertainment or social enjoyment with friends or family mean you want to spend a lot of time in the hot tub. That’s probably not going to be comfortable at the highest heat levels. Of course, you want the hot tub to be warm, but temperatures between 80 and 100 degrees are best for long-term soaking situations.
When you want to soak in the hot tub to relieve aches or pains, or promote healing of injuries, warmer temperatures are best. Set the thermostat of the hot tub for between 100 and 104 degrees to get the most out of the hot tub’s heat and massage for short-term soaks.
You’ll get more out of your hot tub if you don’t have to run inside the minute a few raindrops fall, much less snowflakes. Nothing can be more fun than soaking in the hot tub when raindrops are falling, as long as they aren’t falling on you. Of course, you should always get out of the hot tub and into your house if lightening is anywhere in the vicinity. The best thing you can do to ensure year-round fun in any weather is to install your new hot tub under an awning, porch roof or gazebo.
If you live in an area where the temperatures drop below freezing, you might think that drop-in temperature at the end of fall signals the end of your hot tub fun for the year. That’s not necessarily true though. In fact, hot tubs are great in cold weather. The trick is to have all the right items on hand to make it fun to use a hot tub in the cold or the rain. The closer your portable spa is to the house the more likely you’ll be to use the hot tub in cold or rainy weather too. It’s just easier to jump out of the hot tub and get inside and stay warm if the spa is close to an access door of the home.
Too much, or too little sanitizer can make your hot tub experience less enjoyable than it should be. Caring for your hot tub’s water isn’t difficult. Test the water with a quality pool chlorine kit to see if it is at the appropriate levels. PH should be maintained between 7.2 and 7.8, and bromine between 2-10 ppm. Alkalinity of the water needs to be somewhere between 80 and 125 ppm. The wrong levels may lead to unpleasant odors or even skin discomfort, so check your water levels weekly and make the necessary adjustments.
