Why hot tubs are still great in the summer
Hot tubs are a great way to get cozy with friends or your sweetie on chilly winter nights. But why let the fun stop when the weather warms up? Hot tubs can be enjoyable all year long! Keep reading to learn more about summertime uses for your hot tub.
1. Warm Up On Cool Evenings
In early and late summer and on damp evenings, the air can have a chill to it. Hopping in the hot tub is the perfect way to warm up! You’ll feel like you are slipping into a warm, cozy bath. Hot tubs are great for the transitional periods between the seasons when you want to spend time outside but the weather is cool. Spending time in your hot tub helps get you in the outdoor summertime mode in spring or lets you ride out the end of summer well into fall. Jump in the hot tub with your sweetheart and stargaze for a romantic evening!
2. Relax and Unwind
Whether you are a parent, work long hours, or have a busy schedule, everyone needs a way to relax after a long day. There is no better way to zen out at home than a soak in your hot tub! The warm water will clear your skin and relax you just like a sauna but in the comfort of your own home. Grab a book and spend some relaxing “me time” in your hot tub or fill it up with friends for a more social way to unwind.
3. Good For Sore Muscles
Everyone gets sore muscles every now and again. This is especially true in summer. Working outside, playing with the kids since they are at home on break, and taking road trips can be a killer for muscles. Rather than spending a fortune on a massage, try soaking in your hot tub! The jets, bubbles, and hot water will relax your sore muscles and make you feel much better. Just position your sore spot over a jet and soon your soreness will melt away.
With warmer weather and plants in bloom, your hot tub takes different maintenance steps in summer. First, be sure to keep it covered when not in use to keep dirt, leaves, blossoms, and other debris out of the water. Sanitizing your hot tub often is also key. Warm weather breeds bacteria and with extra sweat, sunscreen, bug spray, and other substances on your body, the water can get funky fast. Add the right chemicals on a regular schedule and you can enjoy your hot tub year round.
