It may be winter….but you are living in beautiful sunny warm Palm Springs California…..land of hot tubs and swimming pools! All of your friends have them and now you want to get on the bandwagon, too. With professional installation and a little information on their care and keeping, you can relax in style while gazing at the majestic snowcapped San Jacinto mountains!
One of the first considerations is placement of your new hot tub. Ninety percent of owners put their hot tubs and spas out of doors, possibly on a deck or patio area. All you need is an electrical outlet and a flat, solid surface. You can also have your hot tub in the ground. Some folks are now building spools which are large hot tubes/spas or small pools.
Keeping your hot tub or spa clean isn’t all that difficult. Acrylic tubs with fiberglass backing are easy to care for, making this one of the most popular. Just make sure you keep up with your filter’s needs. You can use an ozonator to spray ozone gas into the spa water, a very effective way to kill bacteria without the chlorine smell. Follow the instructions for daily use or use the usual bromide and chlorine cleaners. .
Today’s hot tubs come with an amazing variety of features, including stereo systems, customized head rests and extra jets for those who have special needs. Customized lighting creates a nice mood for evenings. You can choose a small spa for two or one large enough for your friends. Just consider how you want to use your spa and the cost of keeping it running, including water and electricity. Then just sit back and Enjoy! It doesn’t get any better than this!
