Hot tubs are a great way to add luxury and beauty to the yard. They extend the living space to the patio or lawn, but a hot tub is more than just a pretty pool, it also provides excellent health benefits for you, your friends and family.
Here are three ways to get the most out of your hot tub experience.
Rinse Off for Longer - Lasting Water Quality – Cleaning a hot tub is pretty easy, and doesn’t have to be done too often, but you can be sure the water will stay clean longer by showering before using the hot tub. Even if you haven’t’ been rolling around in the dirt, your body has oil and sweat from the day on the skin that will transfer to the water.
Anyone in the family that uses oils, lotions or perfumes will also transfer those surface liquids to the water, so a shower first rule is a great idea for everyone in the home. It isn’t always easy to enforce a shower first rule, especially when there is a party with extended family and friends involved. Just be sure to clean the hot tub well before a large gathering of outsiders, and the clean it again after the party is over.
Use the Cover – A hot tub cover is a common purchase when bringing home a new spa, but sometimes people forget to put it on, or don’t want to be bothered when they use their portable spas every day. Hot tub covers are important though. They help keep the water clear by keeping out debris when the spa is not in use, and they cut down on sunlight so algae doesn’t have a chance to invade. Hot tub covers are great for conserving electricity as well. They allow your hot tub to retain heat longer and take less time to heat up before the next session as well.
Keep the Hot Tub Warm – If you are just using the hot tub on the weekends, you probably won’t want to keep it warm during the week, although that isn’t getting as much of the benefits from your hot tub as you could. Soaking nightly in the hot tub, at the very least, will help you sleep better and relax from the day’s stress for a healthier overall sense of well-being.
Using a hot tub daily, or every other day, is great, and you will save a lot of money in energy costs if you keep the portable spa at a minimum warmth of about 80 degrees when not in use. That’s because it takes a lot more energy to heat up a cold pool of water than it does to keep water at a modest temperature and warm it up from there for use.
When you buy your hot tub, make sure it is a well-insulated model. That will allow the spa to maintain its heat and heat up quicker too. Covering your hot tub will also help conserve the heat and make it easier to prepare for use.
So Go Ahead, Take a Soak, You Deserve it! It’s, fast, fun and relaxing. Not only that, it’s good for the body, soothes the mind and can improve your overall health and well-being.

Pain can take many forms. For some, it’s the result of a chronic condition like arthritis. For others, an old injury can wreak havoc on a knee or shoulder. When pain impacts how you feel, relief is a top priority. The good news is, medication isn’t always the only path to relief.
Here’s how a swim spa can help ease pain naturally from the comfort and convenience of home.
Swim in Less Space With far-reaching benefits, swimming is one of the best activities for toning and shaping the body, but it’s also great for relieving muscle and joint pain. However, getting to the gym can be a hassle and community pools are only available during the warm months. A swim spa at home offers the benefits without the hassle. With a continuous current, it’s easy to swim in compact space without hitting the wall. Swim as hard as you can, and the continuous current will keep you away from the walls with every stroke.
An Active Lifestyle Reduces Daily Pain - Pain shouldn’t prevent you from engaging in activities you enjoy, but it often does. The good news is, with a swim spa at home, it’s easy to live an active lifestyle. Swim laps, use resistance bands for strength training or create an enjoyable stretching routine in your spa. Why let inactivity increase stiffness and muscle fatigue? A swim spa is the cushioned environment you need for easy movement, and pain free physical activity, breaking the cycle of inactivity.
Hydrotherapy Soothes Away Pain - Soaking the body in hot, massaging water eases muscle stiffness and increases relaxation for long lasting, all-natural relief. With two separate sides to your swim spa, it’s possible to engage in healthy aquatic exercise and enjoy soothing hydrotherapy too! Heat envelops stiff muscles and joints, decreasing pain, increasing flexibility and improving range of motion.
So Go Ahead, Take a Swim, You Deserve it! - It’s, fast, fun and relaxing. Not only that, it’s good for the body, soothes the mind and can improve your overall health and well-being.

“The backyard can be a real oasis. A sanctuary for family and friends to get together and enjoy the sunshine, fresh air and warm weather after a long winter,” says Melinda Dalacas, manager of Southwest Spas and Pools. It takes a little work, but once it is finished, a beautiful backyard becomes an extension of the living area of the home and adds to the value and enjoyment.
Here are three things to do that will help prepare the backyard for a great year of use.
Plan Smart and Be Honest – It’s okay to dream big, but before implementing any plan of action, be sure to be honest about how much work it will be. Don’t start a huge digging project or create a big garden that will take a lot of work if there isn’t going to be time or energy to finish it and keep it up. Make sure the dreams for the yard match the available space as well. Look for ways to create a smart, fun area that will give the most pleasure for the space available. Plan a lot of lounge areas too. No matter how sport or activity oriented the family is, just sitting back and enjoying the weather is always a plus.
Choose Long Lasting Materials – Lawn furniture doesn’t have to be expensive to be beautiful, useful and long-lasting. There are many great lounge and seating sets made from hard wearing, weather resistant acrylic that are very affordable. When choosing other materials such as metals or wood-based furniture, make sure they are well protected with the proper weather resistant paints or sealants. Plan for less work as well by, creating a long-lasting, weed resistant base of pavers or cement in the seating areas.
Add a Hot Tub - Installing a hot tub adds instant value and attraction to any outdoor area. They can be placed in small areas where space is limited or make for party focal points in big places. Along with the jet massaging comfort that a hot tub provides to people with sore muscles or aching joints, a hot tub has both medicinal and psychological benefits.
Health focused families can get workout equipment designed especially for hot tub use, including joint saving water aerobics and treadmill systems. People can even enjoy the all-around exercise of swimming with a jet resistance swimming area in a hot tub. Any exercise in the hot tub is more efficient because the water provides added resistance to create a bigger challenge. For the backyard entertainment center, hot tubs also offer great attractions such as built-in stereos, televisions and special lighting systems.
Having a hot tub creates a party atmosphere that everyone will love. With a little planning, it even makes cold weather more fun. Construct a gazebo around the hot tub or place it under a porch to allow luxurious soaking in any weather.
