Buying a hot tub can be a deadly decision to take. I call it deadly because of the immense relief one feels once they finally install the hot tub that they have bought with their hard-earned money after countless efforts, research and stress.
Hot tub – luxury becomes a necessity
I know buying a hot tub is most likely the third most expensive thing after your house and car. When I design the hot tubs, I pay attention to every detail because buying a hot tub is an investment towards your health and financial value of your house.
So, should you buy a hot tub?
Many people wonder if it’s worth the cost and hassle to buy a hot tub when you can get yourself cleaned in a shower too. Here is a list of top 10 reasons why you should get a hot tub too:
1. Not restricted by season
As typically the name depicts, “hot tubs” are not bound for the winter season only; you can use the hot tubs throughout the year. Swimming pools are amazing for the summer season when the outside weather is warm but hot tubs can be relished in fall, winter, summer, and spring.
The hot tubs even let you relax outside and enjoy the starry night or enjoy a sunset. Keeping these things in mind I design hot tubs to make them as comfortable and useful as one could ever imagine.
2. Induces deep sound sleep
Concerns of people suffering from insomnia are finally answered without any medication required; being drenched into the hot tub helps you sleep better. I have read the latest statistics from The American Academy of Sleep Medicine regarding insomnia and it gives alarming info that from 30 to 35% of people undergo some symptoms of insomnia.
Even a single night of restless sleep ruins your next working day and can lead to following troubles:
- The lousy mood throughout the day.
- Poor memory.
- Low level of energy.
- Irritation and fatigue.
I strongly recommend people suffering from insomnia to take at least 15 minutes to soak in the bathtub about half or one hour before going to the bed, it would increase your body temperature and the instant cool down period after that would make you feel relaxed and help in getting a sound sleep.
3. Saves water
Instead of relaxing in a bathtub after which the water is drained, you can just hop inside a hot tub; it can be refilled or drained every six months. Why not relax and meanwhile do a favor to the mother-earth as well by saving water.
4. Consistent private retreat
Having a hot tub at home would let you enjoy the relaxed feeling without even paying a monthly fee or wait for an invite from friends or colleague to have a nice dip whereas you will not be as comfortable as you would have been otherwise at your home.
You can get to enjoy a consistent private retreat whenever you want. Although your electricity bill would be increased to a couple of hundred a year.
5. Your very own personal oasis
I know there are different kinds of hot tubs and they even give the customers a benefit to get a hot tub designed as per their needs and requirements. Yes! A customized hot tub for you just the way you want it to be. From the size of the hot tub to its color, style, number and jet styles including controls, LED lights or a stereo system – you will get exactly what you want.
You can make your hot tub a family gathering place, party destination, and even a romantic spot. I consider even the tiniest detail so that the customers get it with the perfect features as per the exact requirements.
6. Health is wealth
I have always loved this fun point that word spa is an acronym of” salus per aquam”, this Latin phrase “health from the water.” Hot water increases the blood flow and circulation in the body, it releases the muscular pain and relaxes the body. Mario Michael from Watkins Wellness is a huge advocate of wellness benefits obtained from hot tubs.
7. Promotes muscle relaxation
The natural resistance occurring while relaxing also releases pressure and strain of joints while giving them a soothing break from the hard work of the day and even the night. Another important thing in my opinion (it’s more like my favorite thing) is that the hot tub jets target muscle groups for massage and get relieved from the sore muscles pain.
Insulation of hot tubs can be chosen from the various options available as per customized needs. Following is the comparison for hot tub insulation:
|Insulation hot tub types||Example||Pros||Cons|
|Partial foam||Rotationally molded spa||Low purchase price, suitable for warm weather||Weak to freezing, expensive to maintain|
|Fibercore||Top quality spas, including Limelight and HotSpot range.||Movable, wool-like threads give the same insulation as of high-density foam, easy to remove for repair||Reduced insulation from multi-density full foam|
8. Get relaxed from head to toe
Whether you enjoy in a hot tub alone or with friends enjoying a fizzy drink, you opt for hydrating under the shining stars or soaking under the sun, a hot tub lets you enjoy and relax. You can read a book, unwind or get some time off from worries with an electronic device or enjoy some downtime.
While enjoying the soothing bubbles, a small soak would help to ease your tensed muscles and increase the sense of happiness.
Like a user review on eBay rightly sums it up in these words: “Brilliant, soak away the aches and pains”:
9. Next level bathing
Whenever I think of designing the bathtub I always want to put in the magical feel in the curves and shapes that one will enjoy while soaking in the hot tub. The bubbly hot water and jets offer the mini escape and a way to relax in a way which cannot be replicated.
Yet, the cost for this bliss is not one-time; it comes with maintenance cost, electricity bill, and installation. Still in my opinion, if you can afford its budget and have the space to install it, I would strongly recommend that you shall add this luxury to your home and make it an essential part of your life.
10. Feels great every time
We all love our comfort zone and find new ways to improve our health; in my opinion, the relaxation one gets inside the hot tub cannot be beaten. I would not hesitate even once to admit that hot tubs really do make us feel amazing. There is not even a single time that I have seen someone sad in a hot tub.
Consider buying this luxury item as it will ultimately become a necessity or addiction because of its soothing results and great feeling every time you take a dip. Every time you turn up the jets, put on some good tunes and get the most out of your relaxation time.
❄️Can I use a hot tub in winter?
Yes, it’s possible to soak in a portable hot tub anytime. NB! When it gets colder, turn a hot tub into a «no-freeze» mode. If you leave the jacuzzi in the cold, that can lead to extensive damage (the water pump and lines probably need to be replaced).
☃️How cold is too cold for a hot tub?
Inflatable hot tubs can be used outdoors if the air temperature is above 40°F. The water in the jacuzzi should not exceed 104°F (in winter up to 100°F). To use a portable hot tub in winter, you need to turn on the “no-freeze” mode at the first cold snap.
😴 Does a hot tub help you sleep?
Several factors aid in a sound sleep after using a hot tub. – Soaking helps you relax mentally – Jets massage relieves muscle and fascial tension – Body temperature drops slightly and signals to your body that it’s time to sleep.
💪What does a hot tub do to your muscles?
Hot tub therapy helps to increase blood flow, stimulate healing, and relax muscles. Professional athletes and hobbyists alike use jacuzzis to prepare their muscles for workouts and to recover from them. You can also use a hot tub in the evening for relaxation after a working day or before bed.
