5 Helpful Tips For New Hot Tub Users
There’s a lot to learn when making your first hot tub purchase. Here are five tips we’ve found helpful for new owners!
Invest in a hot tub cover
Not all hot tub covers are worth the money. When looking to purchase, make sure you are exploring covers that are made with durable material. The better insulated a hot tub cover is, the more money you will save in energy costs. It will help to keep your spa’s temperature consistent which also preserves associated costs. This will also keep your water much warmer for each soak!
Create a cleaning schedule
It is important to set a schedule for cleaning your hot tub! Whether a physical calendar or mental reminder – you want to be sure it is routine. Plus, who wants to swim in dirt and oils anyways? As long as you make sure to regularly sanitize and clean your spa and its filters, you and your guests will always have an enjoyable swim.
Have extra towels
It’s never fun to exit from the hot tub in the cold weather and realize you have no towels near – especially if your spa lives far from the door inside! One trick is to keep a small storage container that fits into your porch or blends in with your spa to keep extra towels. This will ensure you stay warm and dry after your dip! It also might be a good idea to keep more than enough towels for any guests who may forget to bring over their own.
Use economy mode when you leave
Now, there’s no need to worry about your energy bill rising when you leave town for an extended period of time. Many hot tubs now come with a feature called economy mode which lowers the water temperature by 15 degrees when you turn it on. Then it will heat the water back up when you arrive home and turn it off!
Soak two hours before bed
Once you have completed all the work of installation and upkeep, it is time to relax. Hot tubs can be helpful in providing a more restful sleep for its users. By taking 30 minutes about two hours before bed to spend against the massaging jets, you’ll fall into a much deeper sleep. For those with trouble sleeping, your new hot tub could be a natural remedy.
