How To Enjoy Your Hot Tub This Winter
Hot tubs can be an added upside to your winters, particularly if you live in a region where the sun shines only in the summers, and it’s generally cold the year round. A hot tub allows you to have a good time with friends or family, and keeps you cosy and relaxed the year round. To help you enjoy your hot tub this winter, here are some tips that really work.
The foremost step to enjoying your hot tub is its maintenance. Make sure your hot tub has a freeze control system, and has some sort of a freeze protection system. Often, the pipes exposed to the cold may get damaged or the water may freeze in the pipes. This can damage the hot tub, and can make your hot tub much less effective. A good idea is to buy a heat retaining cover for its, or use a thermal blanket.
- Preparation is Key
Prepare not just the tub, but yourself for a good spa session at home. Keep a bathrobe with you, right next to the Jacuzzi and a pair of slippers or sandals to avoid direct contact with snow. It is also a good idea to clear a path from your house to the tub beforehand and salt it. This can minimize any slipping or other accidents, and keep you warm when you walk to and from the hot tub.
- Keeping it warm
Particularly in areas where it snows or rains during the winters, it is recommended that the tub is kept covered at all times. You can get an insulated cover for your outdoor tub, to make sure the cold does not damage it. In most cases, it is ideal that you get tubs which have built in foam insulation systems, auto heat control and other similar features. Smith Pools carries several brands of hot tubs with all these different features.
- Warmer towels
While a bath robe or an extra towel may reduce the rate at which your body loses heat once you start to leave the hot tub, it is always a good idea to get a towel warmer. This way, you can be more comfortable, and may not lose any heat, and may not get sick due to the quick changes in temperature. You can find other alternatives for a towel warmer, such as fresh towels from the dryer.
- Keeping your head warm
If there is one thing that can stop you from enjoying your hot tub fully, its wet hair in the cold, freezing weather. Therefore, to avoid any unpleasantness, wear a warm beanie, or a hat to keep your head warm, and avoiding getting sick.
- The perfect match
This step can make all the difference in your hot tub experience. You need to make sure you get an expert opinion from the local salesman regarding which tub may be the best, or which features to look for in the perfect Jacuzzi for you.
It is not only important for you to look for the best hot tub or for the perfect way to maintain the Jacuzzi, but also to care for yourself, and keeping yourself warm. We hope these tricks helps enjoy your hot tub to the fullest.
