Taking a dip in a hot tub is arguably the closest thing to having a spa in your home and it can make for the perfect end to a long day! But if you’re looking for a bit more of a pep in your step, try hopping into the hot tub first thing in the morning to set your mood for the day and enjoy the health benefits fully. You’ll start your day feeling relaxed and refreshed – ready for whatever the rest of it may bring! 

Honestly, there is no “best” time to soak in a hot tub, only the best time for you and your lifestyle!

Preparing for the Perfect Hot Tub Experience

If jumping into a hot tub isn’t the perfect way to relax, then what is? Before you start unwinding, we recommend taking a few simple steps to ensure that you have the perfect hot tub experience.  Make sure your hot tub experience will be as enjoyable as possible. Start by ensuring that you have a clean spa so that it is ready to use well before you plan to jump in – nothing’s worse than discovering your hot tub is dirty or at the wrong temperature! Now that everything is clean, ready, and raring to go, all that’s left for you to do is jump in and enjoy!

What To Bring and What Not To Bring

Ready to pamper yourself and enjoy some well-deserved relaxation? Well then, it’s essential to be prepared with all the necessities. Cozy and clean towels, comfy bathrobes or dresses, and spa slippers or flip flops (the cozier the better!) are must-haves for any spa adventure. As an added bonus, why not bring along a few snacks and drinks (avoid glass bottles or drinkware), or grill out, as well as  bring some music for ambiance? Avoiding bringing jewelry and other metal accessories that can easily corrode when exposed to the chlorine or bromine used for sanitizing the spa is also an important consideration. 

Safety Tips for Enjoying Your Hot Tub Time 

Your hot tub time is a great way to relax, but it’s important to stay safe while doing so. Ensure that kids are never left alone in the hot tub and that they are not in there for longer than 15 minutes. It is also advised to avoid having alcohol before or during use as it can reduce alertness which can be unsafe without supervision. If you’re concerned about making your hot tub as safe as possible, consider investing in a few hot tub accessories (such as slip-resistant steps) to maximize your safety. Finally, make sure to always adhere to manufacturer instructions when setting up and taking down any parts of your hot tub set-up – they know best when it comes to safety! 

Cleaning and Maintenance Tips for Maximizing Your Hot Tub’s Lifespan

With a hot tub, it’s like having your very own private oasis and maximizing that experience means keeping on top of maintenance. Keeping your hot tub in tip top condition requires regular checking of pH levels and water balance, changing filters appropriately (every few months), vacuuming and scrubbing the walls/floors once a week, adding chlorine or bromine tablets every 1-2 weeks, balancing chemicals each month, draining and refilling every 3 months, running diagnostics tests quarterly – it’s quite the list!

Additional Ideas To Enhance Your Hot Tub Experience

We recommend that you consider adding additional features like LED lights around jets or near the bottom of the pool, installing a waterfall feature at the entrance, or adding Bluetooth speakers so music can stream directly into the water. All these ideas are great ways to personalize your experience and set the perfect ambience! Don’t forget that you don’t just have to use the hot tub to socialize, it can also be a great place to be alone and even meditate to further enhance the benefits of hot tubbing!
